The release date of Big Business' "Mind the Drift" is pushed back a few days and a 12" single will be out soon. Also there are few changes in the BB's tour itinerary.
Original blog from BB's Myspace:
Mind the Drift Release Date
Mind the Drift will be be available to everyone to have for their very own on May 12. This is a little later than we planned, but that's show biz I guess. The good news is that all signs indicate we will have the record for sale on all our tour dates. That means if you can make it out to one of the shows, you can get Mind the Drift before it hits the stores/sites. Unless you come to one of the shows that occur on or after May 12, at which point none of this will really matter anymore. I'm talking about the mayan calendar of course. Yup, it's The End, so do whatever you want.
As far as the vinyl goes, we got the test pressings a couple of weeks back. They had some strange static noises at the beginning of both sides, so back they went. We should be getting the new ones any day now. The art and sleeves have already been manufactured. We hope we will have vinyl for the whole tour, but if the worst happens, we might not have wax for the first week or so. What can you do? I personally plan on throwing a lot more tantrums.
That is the newest news we have at the moment. See you all soon!
Biz Bot Remix 12" single !!!!
I almost forgot!
We will have a 12" vinyl single for sale on tour. The Drift and Cats, Mice have been re-imagined and re-recorded here on this one time only limited edition single. Completely different than the LP versions of the songs.
