totes devo (DEV-oh not DEE-vo)
people like to call them 'devoted' for short but i want to start a movement to call them 'the few'.
the new few record 'baby, you're a vampire' is finallyyyyyy done and done with a release date slated for november. the sydney 6-piece are currently doing all that fun stuff you do before releasing like making videos, organising tours and adding myspace friends.
the album was recorded by scotty horscroft at bjb and mixed by jacquire king in nashville. jacquire has worked with kings of leon (produced the new album), tom waits, modest mouse, third eye blind (!) etc. and also has quite the australian flavour to his discography with work on releases by 67 special, dappled cities, end of fashion and the few. ozzie, ozzie, ozzie.
*ANECDOTE BREAK... while mixing in nashville, ben and barry from the band were caught in a flash flood/hurricane alert. the hurricane alarms went off everywhere and ben turned, paled faced to a local and said 'what we do if a hurricane come..' (real southern and stuff to which she replied 'y'all just find you a ditch and jump in it!'
'the few' are currently previewing tracks on their myspace and you can download one of the new tracks right hurrrr.
