it’s here, it’s out, it’s released, it’s out.
the self-titled debut album by our very own Viva Machine hit stores yesterday. if you’re one of the seven people reading this blog then you probably already know how amazing it is so i won’t reimpress that fact onto you (but, it’s amazing. just FYI).
THINGS TO DO. these are things you both need and want to do.
1) download the single. FOR FREE. no catch… download ‘Earthquakers & Loveshakers’ here. it’s been getting some pretty sweet radio play but it’s still underground enough that it’s OK for you cool kidz to dance to.
2) buy the album. i know you think that you don’t really need it, but THAT THOUGHT IS WRONG. i have 3 degrees in psychology and i know what’s best for you. buy the album buy the album buy the album buy the album. i’ve stolen quite a lot of money to facilitate its release and i need to sell enough to put it back before anyone notices. please help.
3) repeat point 1.
4) repeat point 2.
5) watch 3/5ths of the band playing a very special acoustic version of album track ‘Go Johnny Go Go Go Go’ in their garden. it’s so beautiful it’ll make you cry…
please ensure you carry out points 2 and 4 by the end of this week as we’re locked in a pretty hot chart battle with kasabian right now and we’re only 25 sales ahead!!! HELP US!
some quotes about the album to help persuade you (i would normally make something up to sound good and go here but i promise that these are the opinions of actual real people!! I DID NOT MAKE THESE UP I PROMISE)
“certainly one of Brit-rock’s great hopes”
“‘Earthquakes And Loveshakers’ is a massive tune that builds and builds like a mammoth Jenga set-up just to fall hard and destroy your eardrums… you’ll love it. It should offer a nice smack in the face to many of the indie-electro pretenders out there right now.”
“one of this years’ hottest albums”
“demands to be danced to”
” they teach you how to spell Dracula, bless ‘em! “
“polished to fuck”
“Believe the hype, Viva Machine are coming to rock your body right.”
and my personal favourite:
“These lads might just be rock’s answer to Lady Gaga”
that’s it for now, i think. don’t forget the band are playing a release party show in swansea on friday night at the monkey cafe. support comes from suns of thunder and canterbury among others. it’s gonna be bloody lovely.
