ASTRALWERKS SETS MARCH 25TH, 2008 FOR THE RELEASE OF THE B-52S NEW “LOUD, SEXY, ROCK AND ROLL” ALBUM ‘FUNPLEX’
The B-52s will celebrate 32 years together with the release of ‘Funplex’ on March 25th via Astralwerks. The influential band – who bridged a gap between punk and new wave with a sound that was uniquely their own – played exuberant sets in NY and LA this fall where seven of the new tracks made their stateside debut and were received very favorably by their hordes of fans.
RollingStone.com, who got a sneak peak at the album, says, “While the quirkiness and humor still shine through, the arrangements on the eleven-song album are more focused and atmospheric. The band still stays true their roots, interspersing futuristic references with sexual and political lyrics.”
Guitarist Keith Strickland adds, “It’s loud, sexy rock and roll for your pleasure zones, with the beat pumped up to hot pink.”
