That's right! The second full length from BIG EYES, "Almost Famous," is officially out now! All of the preorders have shipped and the record should be popping up in your favorite local shops, distros, and online sites over the course of the next few weeks! Taken By Surprise Records will be handling the European pressing of the LP, and their version should be available later this month!
"Almost Famous" is streaming in full over at Spin.com, you can check that out HERE. The release is also streaming on the Grave Mistake BANDCAMP page!
I still have a chunk of the limited GOLD VINYL left (but it's going fast) so if you weren't able to preorder the record, you still have time to grab one! I've also set up a few package deals in case you needed to scoop up any of the older BIG EYES releases along with this new one. You can order "Almost Famous" HERE!
In addition to the LP/CD, "Almost Famous" is available for full Download over at the Grave Mistake Bandcamp. You can also find the record in iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Rdio, and other fun sites!
BIG EYES will be hitting the road at the end of the month, and have a few Seattle shows lined up as well before they leave, including an "Almost Famous" record release show with TOYS THAT KILL on 5/17, with PAUL COLLINS BEAT on 5/18, and with THE KIDS on 5/24. Damn Seattle, you are lucky!
GRAVE059: BIG EYES "Almost Famous" LP/CD
The highly anticipated sophomore full length from Seattle's BIG EYES! With a solidified West Coast lineup, BIG EYES have stepped up their game with a more definitive sound and unified vision. "ALMOST FAMOUS" finds the band drawing even more of a hard rock influence, while maintaining both the pop sensibility and punk edge that you've come to know and love. Taking inspiration from a wide variety of bands ranging from 70's rock and roll staples like Kiss and Blue Oyster Cult, 70's and 80's power pop classics like The Nerves, The Shivvers and The Undertones, and 90's pop punk bands like Scared of Chaka and Mr. T Experience, the trio continue to develop their signature style - tastefully embracing the more glamorous aspects of rock and roll without compromising the attitude and grit. *CD version contains two bonus tracks from the "Back from the Moon" single!
