My America has issued the following statement about streaming a new demo song online at their MySpace page:
"We probably should have done this a long time ago, but better late than never I always say! You can check and see EXACTLY what we are doing at any given time by going here and visiting us on some site called Twatter.
"We also posted a new song that we had originally self-recorded for our own personal use but we have now decided to share it with the public due to its timely lyrical content. The song is called 'Swindled' and it's about the Avian Swine S.A.R.S Flu that's been going around and snatching people up lately. This one is for you guys.
"This song and a handful of others will comprise our next release that we hope to have out late this summer or in the fall. More details on this will come throughout this summer. So keep your board shorts on bro!"
