January 25, 2007, 12 years ago
SLEEPYTIME GORILLA MUSEUM, who will be touring with San Francisco’s SECRET CHIEFS 3 this spring in North America (see dates below), have posted the following update on their new album and latest video:
"Hi all... Looking forward to seeing you on the road this spring. We will of course offer up our first full-length for The End Records to you sometime soon. At this juncture, it is aptly named In Glorious Times.
The track listing for the curious: 'The Companions', 'Helpless Corpses Enactment', 'Puppet Show', 'Formicary', 'Angle Of Repose', 'The Ossuary', 'Salt Crown', 'The Only Dance', 'The Greenless Wreath', 'Widening Eye', 'Putrid Refrain'.
In other news, we've just finished a music-film with New York director Adam Feinstein (Hoodwink, Say You Love Me). Our 4 1/2 minute encapsulation of James Joyce's ‘Finnegan's Wake’ will be visually paired with the song 'Helpless Corpses Enactment'. You can see some pictures from the video shoot here: Photo #1, Photo #2, Photo #3, Photo #4 (all photos: Meredith Yayanos).
See you soon! xoxo, the Museum Staff.”
The band recently reissued their 2001 album Grand Opening And Closing! on The End Records. The reissue, released in digipak format, has also been expanded with two unreleased songs and a live bonus song recorded by the band’s new line-up.
