Promo, bootleg CD and taped shows !

Ok, I’ve been too busy listening to the album that I forgot to post !
Some promo items are coming. The first of them is the 3 tracks sampler. Nothing special expect that the timing on the back cover are wrong. 🙂
I have a complete promo CD coming too, but it seems that it’s stuck in the postal cloud.
And there’s a jewel case CD. It’s a completely unofficial release. It comes from Russia, Moscow to be more precise, and is spreading fast. So beware. If you’re a die hard collector, it’s fine, but if you’re a fan, just shop on the Earache Webstore. Or buy it at a gig !
On the digital side, three shows where taped : Stoke on 2nd Frebruary, Glasgow, on 3rd March and Pratteln on 17th March. This last is sounding really great ! A huge thank to the taper !

Please welcome “A Deeper Cut”, the latest The Temperance Movement album!

A fine package !

Finally, it’s here.
I must admit, I’ve been busy since last Thursday. Busy because I’m listening constantly to this album. It’s a killer, with variety in the songs : rock, blues, ballad.
Hopefully I’m in holidays, so it’s rather a great situation !
I’m waiting for the orange vinyl, limited to the Indie stores. A bid is on its way on eBay for a 3 tracks sampler. I guess there will not be long until the full promo will hit eBay too. Maybe a press folder… That would be great.
I’ve got a nice addition to my collection, with a dedicated and signed set-list from the video you can watch just under. It was at YouTube Space, in London, one week before the release. It was a press only event, with 20 lucky Movers. A big thank to Eric and Sonia for this set-list !
The website has been updated. I’m planning to add more photos from the latest releases, when I have mastered my Note 8 camera… 🙂

Merch, A Deeper Cut and Time Won’t Leave promo CDs

Caught In The Middle promo CD

It’s time for an update !
My collection has grown a bit. First, some merch with the 4 t-shirts available on the “Small Rooms, New Tunes” tour, the mug and 2 signed poster. The one for the gig in Paris and the one for the tour.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Then, the singles. The band has released 3 singles to this day : Caught In The Middle, Built-In Forgetter and the fantastic A Deeper Cut. It seems that only Caught In The Middle is available on promo CD. But you never know as I just discovered that Time Won’t Leave was released as a promo CD !

So if you have one, let me know !
And last information : A Deeper Cut is available as a promo CD.

And, finally, the 3 singles on YouTube

A new CD : a White Bear Japanese sampler !

White Bear Japanese sampler

A Deeper Cut is coming but there’s still activity about White Bear !
I was totally unaware of its existence until recently. White Bear didn’t have a release in Japan via Hydrant Music. I’ve been in touch with them asking about all the first album’s promo releases and they’ve said me that nothing was planned for White Bear. But it seems that Warner Japan has produced this sampler to promote the album’s release. All the album’s CDs in Japan were European import.
I’m pretty happy to have this one !
