For The Record.


On the night of July 9th, we’re going to play a special show in Nashville, Tennessee, America, Earth, to celebrate the the fact that it’s taken us nearly 6 years to release our first album, “The Protomen” (Act I), as a 12″ LP. This special edition first pressing of 1,000 will be colored vinyl (split blue/red), and will include a 22″ x 22″ foldout poster of never-before-seen first album concept artwork, as well as a 10″ x 10″ stencil (so you can tag all kinds of “things that you own”). This limited version will also have the original endings of multiple jams (future pressings will not). Get them when you can. Because of the fancy nature of this occasion, we decided to ask our good friends The Non-Commissioned Officers to join us for party and tea. They accepted! This night will be the most fun.

Now, I know most of you may be wondering, “when can a person like me, who lives in Egypt, order one or twenty of those records on the lines?” The answer you seek lies here: The LP will not be available online until the morning after the release show at 10am Central (availability will depend on how many survive the night). And if all that isn’t enough to get you all riled up booking tickets for all sorts of planes and your fancy rocket ships, maybe this will do the deed. We’ve decided to attempt a sort of live DVD (and maybe album?) recording for that night. And maybe you can be all up in it? Exciting, right?

Now, I don’t want you coming around me with all your fancy lad sassin’ trying to tell me that you don’t want to come to the show because you’re too much of a fancy lad to be in our live DVD, because that’ll obligate me to punch you right in your fancy lad sassin’ face. Nobody wants that. Come on out to the show. Get your limited edition vinyl record of our first album. Listen to us and the Non-Coms. And don’t piss me off —> Get Your Tickets Here

Now, with all that out of the way, it’s time to show you some of the places we’re looking to go in the next couple of months. And make sure you get your tickets quickly, because most of these will sell out. For reals –

I Think We’re Alone Now.

We’re chin deep in learning the path of the brave at Kamp Kikakee at the moment, so this is going to be quick and dirty:

We got a call the other day from some dame that claimed she was the hawttest of hawt sensations in the 80s. We thought it was Uncle “Stinky Thumbs” Arbuckle pranking us again, but we were wrong. It turns out she is the most real Tiffany of all the Tiffanies that we’ve ever spoken to. She said she wanted us to be her date to the 5/25 party at fooBAR.too in Nashville, America. How could we say “no”? We couldn’t, that’s how. It’s going to be The Awesomest.

21+ 9:00 p.m.

A couple weeks after that, we’ll be visiting the hot hot mess that is Texas, America. Much like the Tiffany situation, we got a conference call from Ween, Chromeo, Big Boi, and the guys in Guitar Wolf (although we couldn’t understand them) about joining their fun time weekend in Houston at Free Press Summer Fest on June 4th. We took their physical challenge. We’ll be visiting some favorite cities en route as well. Come out to all the shows….maybe you’ll make it into the documentary?!

02nd – Memphis, TN – Newby’s — 18+
03rd – Dallas, TX – The Prophet Bar — ALL AGES
04th – Houston, TX – Free Press Summer Fest — ALL AGES
06th – New Orleans, LA – One Eyed Jacks — 18+

There are only a few of them, so we’d better see you at every one.

As for July, well, let’s not spoil Christmas for you just yet. Let’s just say it might have some other tours and maybe the release of a new format of something old and maybe a live DVD taping. More details soon…maybe.

Guaranteed to blow your mind,

-The Protomen

p.s. If you don’t know who Tiffany is… shame on you. Fix that immediately.
