QUEEN o HEARTS
Hey dudes here is the last mp3 we're gonna throw out to try and entice you to get into the new record. This is the first song on the album (minus the intro) and features Maddy from the band Cults. She'll be playing the role of Veronica Boisson for tonight. You may notice from the lyrics posted a while ago on davidcomestolife.com that this song describes a happy place - David and Veronica meet and fall in love before things start to go pear shaped. What about the music, you ask? Well we wrote most of this song in 2004 or 2005 and made up the chorus and the bridge over the summer. That intro riff has been rattling around inside my head since we released Dance of Death. There's a few other tracks in this collection that are as old, kind of crazy. We were listening to a lot of Smashing Pumpkins at the time, so maybe you can hear a bit of a resemblance.
FUCKED UP - "Queen of Hearts"
Anyhow, there you go, hope you like it -that's all we have for you until you either buy the record in advance or wait like a shmuck until June 7th. Don't forget - I know we've been over this, but it's important - you can still "BUY EARLY GET NOW" until halfway into May I think - you get the 5 bonus tracks right away, you get to hear the full album starting on May 10th, and then in June you get sent the album in hardcopy as well as 4 7" singles, a poster, the Davids Town LP on mp3, whatever, all this stuff. It's like $35 - you don't have $35? To get that into your life go HERE or HERE or HERE, among other places.
