Coliseum News – House With A Curse, Tour,

From Ryan Patterson:
Greetings all, just dropping a line as the last few weeks count down before
the release of our new album, House With A Curse, hits stores on June 22nd,
via Temporary Residence.
– “Everything To Everyone,” the second track from H.W.A.C., premiered today
exclusively from AbsolutePunk.net.
– Pre-orders: Temporary Residence is still offering pre-orders, but the
limited black/white splattered vinyl is running out quickly. When you
pre-order the record you will be automatically entered into a contest to win
a copy of one of the test pressings and all LP orders will receive the
deluxe embossed / spot gloss jackets, which we are really excited about – it
Louisville Mixtape: Our pals at the Land Animal blog asked me to put
together a mix tape featuring my favorite songs from Louisville. It took me
a few months to put together, but I finally obliged and included extensive
liner notes / anecdotes. If I was still 16 years old, this is more or less
the tape I would’ve made for you. Obviously I excluded any band that I was
ever a member of, so no Coliseum, Black Cross / Widows, National Acrobat,
Automatic, Enkindels, etc.
– Louisville Release Show: On June 18th, we’ll be playing a FREE record
release show at Skull Alley in Louisville. The show will also be a photo
show featuring pics from House With A Curse by Nick Thieneman of Young
Widows. The photos will be displayed and available for purchase, then we’ll
take the stage at 10pm. This is also the weekend of Skull Alley’s second
anniversary, join us to celebrate Louisville’s best all ages venue and our
new record.
– North American tour with Burning Love: Just a few days after the album’s
release, we’ll hit the road with our good friends from Toronto, Burning
Love. This will be the first half of the tour, with a Western leg beginning
in late August. In the past we’ve done all types of tours, from DIY shows to
big package tours, for this – our first headlining jaunt in quite some time
– we wanted to do things in the way that we like best, with just one of our
favorite bands playing before us and great locals opening up each night.
We’ll be playing some of our favorite clubs and a few favorite old haunts
(we’re looking at you Westcott Community Center), so we hope to see you
there. Check out the dates below.
– Social networking, wasting time, and glorifying minutiae: As much as we
sometimes hate the fact that bands these days also have to be adept at
internet self-promotion, we are rather happy that MySpace seems to be fading
out and for the moment Facebook and Twitter seem like mildly enjoyable and
productive ways to virtually interact. That said, Mike has become a complete
luddite and it’s an appealing way of life… Follow us on those sites for
other updates and hopefully interesting tidbits.
That’s all for now. As always, thank you.
