AGESANDAGES TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM ALRIGHT YOU RESTLESS FEBRUARY 15th ON KNITTING FACTORY RECORDS

AGESANDAGES TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM ALRIGHT YOU RESTLESS FEBRUARY 15th ON KNITTING FACTORY RECORDS

The seven piece Portland group AgesandAges has announced the release of their debut album, Alright You Restless, February 15th 2011 on Knitting Factory Records. Produced by Kevin Robinson (Viva Voice, Blue Giant) at Amorelphonics in Portland in 8 days, the album was performed almost entirely live with 7 voices sung into one microphone. The result is a dream-filled interpretation of campfire pop with every member effortlessly displaying an exuberant amount of talent layered over vocal harmonies that seem to wrap around each song like a warm blanket.

Started in early 2009 by Tim Perry, of previous Portland rock band Pseudosix, AgesandAges’ live show is a perfect combination of musicians with heartfelt talent and symbiosis interaction of vocal ability. Amidst the apathetic enthusiasm of the Northwest music lover, with tightly crossed arms standing listlessly in the back of the room, silently appreciating their favorite band, AgesandAges has been able to break through their hard candy shells to find the sweet center of every Northwesterner within earshot. Thus creating an enthusiastic fan base ready and willing to dance, clap, and sing along. With their debut album and plans for future touring, expect AgesandAges to capture an entire nation of indie rock fans.

Jimmy Eat World Announce Additional 2010 & 2011 Tour Dates Band to Perform New Single, “Coffee and Cigarettes,” on CONAN on December 13th

Jimmy Eat World Announce Additional 2010 & 2011 Tour Dates Band to Perform New Single, “Coffee and Cigarettes,” on CONAN on December 13th

After spending the last few weeks touring Europe promoting their sixth full-length album, Invented, anthemic rockers Jimmy Eat World will return to the US to tour in December, including a stop at Conan on December 13th to perform their latest single, “Coffee and Cigarettes.” The band wraps up 2010 and rings in the New Year with a performance at the Fiesta Bowl Block Party. It’s the perfect way for the band to complete a successful year that spawned a Billboard top 10 single, one of the band’s most critically acclaimed albums, late-night spots on Letterman, The Tonight Show and Carson Daly, as well as sold out tour dates across America and Europe. The band will kick off 2011 with additional US tour dates in January and February and then head to Japan, Australia and New Zealand. (all tour dates below)

Jimmy Eat World have sold millions of albums over the course of their career, garnering attention from critics and gaining fans around the world. For Invented, the band reunited with producer Mark Trombino, who served as producer on seminal Jimmy Eat World albums Clarity and Bleed American. Critics have noticed the re-energized nature of Invented, with the New York Times noting that “Jimmy Eat World…has been broadening its music for more than a decade. It also plays power ballads, heartland rock, U2-like anthems and, in songs like the new “Action Needs an Audience,” grunge.” The Denver Post put it most succinctly, claiming Invented to be “one of [Jimmy Eat World’s] best.”
