And now, the big art reveal for the @heyfarraday singles we’re releasing! Coming May 29th to iTunes!! Watch the trailer for the “Lockdown” video here: http://youtu.be/TwNAMZsrFWA
We’re releasing 2 singles for Farraday (@heyfarraday) on May 29th! Here’s the trailer for their video for “Lockdown,” produced by Marc McClusky (Weezer, Ludo, Punchline duh).
We are releasing a couple of the freshest jams from FARRADAY (@heyfarraday), a Chicago band that we’ve had our eye on for some time. Their style is significantly different from anything we’ve done and that is a GREAT thing, especially because it shows that we’re doing what WE want to do. This isn’t about you. Well ok, it’s about you, too.
Please be a babe or a deer and let us know what you and your tumblies think of it… or your tweeters, or your bookies. I made up most of those words just now.
Reblog this and let me know your email address and I’ll send you a treat. People like treats.
Your good buddy,
A very BIG Punchline Announcement…
by Chris Fafalios
Our plane is about to take off for Los Angeles, where we will be spending the next couple weeks recording 6 songs for the new Punchline album. We have written what we believe are a collection of our best songs yet, and we are very excited to lay them down and bring our vision to life. This is our second trip to the “City of Angels” in a month, and we will be telling you why we were here in mid-August soon (it was for a very crazy reason, which we’ll be telling everyone we ever met about as soon as the time is right).
In Punchline, we have never been all about doing whatever was cool at that moment in an effort to become more popular. We have passed on possible opportunities if they seemed to jeopardize what we believed and have worked so hard for. While sometimes we might look back and say “what if?”, we have to at the same time look at ourselves and say “we’re still a band after all these years”. We enjoy making music more than ever, and we feel very confident - both on a songwriting and musicianship level - that we are at our peak. I hope that this doesn’t come off as arrogant, because that’s not my intentions. I am just surrounded by my favorite musicians in the world, and I’m honored to be able to go record with them once again.
As much as we are psyched to go record and release songs that we like, that’s not all we want to do. We owe it to ourselves - and the people who have supported us for over 14 years - to try to reach a level we’ve never reached before with this new recording. We want to get to a point where all we have to worry about in life is writing music and making each album better than the last, and not constantly stress about paying rent or being broke. This is about as real as it gets, my friends. Everything that has happened to us over this decade-and-a-half has led us to this point, and the time is now.
We are a very focused band right now, ready to make rock music that speaks to the world. Our long term goal is to be able to continue releasing albums and being a band for a very long time. Our short term goal is this: release one of these new songs and reach #1 on the iTunes singles charts. Lofty goal for a relatively small band like Punchline? Maybe. But we believe deep down that if this is meant to be, the people that care will help spread the word and spend that 99 cents on the day we release a new song. Between our longevity, writing our best songs yet, and the fact that we have the greatest supporters of any band we’ve ever seen, we think we might have a shot at having a song on that little sidebar on your iTunes - right between Lil Wayne and Adele.
We will let you know way in advance when a new song will be up. We are counting on your support to reach this goal, so that we can set new goals to accomplish, allowing us to remain a band FOREVER.
