Tub Ring Issues Studio Update

Chicago's TUB RING is currently in the studio working on their followup to "The Great Filter:"

"It has been quite sometime since we've checked in, and while this will serve as a bit of news to whet your appetite for all things Tub Ring related, it's also barely scratching the tip of the iceberg. We began tracking drums at Electrical Audio (Steve Albini's joint) here in Chicago, early last week. Scott hammered out 17 tracks with class and precision, and we're looking at having around 20 songs to mix once everything is said and done. Over at Studio Edison, guitars are being tracked as I type this. Everyone is extremely excited about the sound of the new material and the direction things have been heading musically. The vibe is so positive right now, that we're still writing new songs, in between recording sessions." More...

TUB RING, who just finished a string of dates with Creature Feature and The Birthday Massacre, are heading to Portland, Maine for dates with MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE with a surprise guest in tow. The band comments:

"Just a quick update to let you know that we're 1/3 of the way through our trip from San Francisco, CA to Portland, ME and we've packed some extra cargo with us.

"Curtis RX from Creature Feature is joining us for the next five shows, and he'll also be handling second guitar duties. This is surely going to make for some special shows, and I guess will double as an early Christmas for the East coast.

Mindless Self Indulgence's "If" Debuts At #27

Mindless Self Indulgence (MSI) debuts on Billboard's Top 200 Album Sales Chart at an astonishing #27 with their album "if." Released Tuesday, April 29th on UCR/The End Records, "if" has already spawned amazing chart numbers prior to album release. Still holding steady since its debut six weeks ago, the single "Never Wanted To Dance" remains at the #1 Position on Billboard's Hot Dance Single Sales Chart. No strangers to the dance charts, singles from their last full length, "Straight to Video" and "Shut Me Up," have both hit #1 and remained in the Top Ten for over a year each.

MSI also prove that in addition to their sales and chart rankings, they are a formidable presence online, with a fan-base which is not only rabid, but also incredibly faithful. For the last month, MSI have remained the Number One Band on MySpace Music in all territories, and in all genres they are competing for. It should be noted, MSI is the ONLY band to remain on the Top Ten Artist Chart consecutively since the inception of MySpace Music. In addition to MySpace, the band has recently had Top 5 rankings on YouTube as well as a smorgasbord of other social networking sites.

The band is currently at the start of its national Spring/Summer tour and will be playing Fort Lauderdale's Revolution tonight with dates leading them back to a massive hometown show in NYC on June 27th. The Birthday Massacre, Combichrist, London After Midnight, Hollowboy, Tub Ring, Fake Shark Real Zombie, and A Kiss Could Be Deadly are support in select cities.

Tub Ring Issue Start of Tour Update

Chicago’s high-energy rock ensemble TUB RING start a three week tour tomorrow with FOXY SHAZAM, KARATE HIGH SCHOOL, and PEACHCAKE. The band finishes up the tour with an appearance at The End Records’ showcase as this year’s SXSW Festival on March 15th, 2008 in Austin, Texas with the ALEX SKOLNICK TRIO, JARBOE, NADJA, and GIANT.

An update online from bassist Trevor Erb reads:

"Hey dudes and dudettes! This is a boarding call for all passengers on the flight/bus/train/bicycle bound for the ‘Woo!!! Spring Break ‘92…Let’s Make Some Bad Decisions‘ Tour, your vessel has arrived, it’s time to head out."

"If you’re reading this, then you’ll be pleased to know that we’re either finishing up a last minute rehearsal, packing the van and trailer, or already on the road and well into our journey. All of these things should make you happy, because for the next month we’ll be out with some great friends of ours that we haven’t seen in sometime, and that always makes for a good time. FOXY SHAZAM, KARATE HIGH SCHOOL, and PEACHCAKE are joining us on this tour, and I think that’s a what you can call a ‘really big show.’ In the spirit of Spring Break, it’s safe to assume that we’ll be sauntering around with fruity drinks topped off with cute little parasol toothpicks and looking for a ‘killer foam party,’ so please point us in the right direction, and make sure our glasses are topped off."
