Cars Can Be Blue new album pre-order and tour dates
Mike at the Happy Happy Birthday To Me blog has announced the pre-order info for the forthcoming Cars Can Be Blue album along with upcoming tour dates. Their Doubly Unbeatable will be released June 10, but pre-orders will include the CD, a bonus CD, a button, and a T-shirt for only $15. That's a bargain. They will ship the last week of May. The pre-order is open now.
HHBTM has released a couple of preview tracks from Doubly Unbeatable, one of which I've heard live ("Coat Tails") and the other I haven't ("Sun Blows Up"). "Coat Tails" is about those bands which try to get attention by touting their relationships with more famous acts, something I recall them explaining they were sick of here in Athens (though it's obviously not exclusive to the Classic City). "Sun Blows Up" is a fun little pop song of the sort the band is known for. Looking forward to the full record!
