Melbourne’s Closure in Moscow are FINALLY releasing their second album. Titled ‘Pink Lemonade’ it’s out May 9th. Check out that awesome cover art too.
I love the way these guys write their press releases so here it is in all its glory:
Closure In Moscow (CIM) are pleased to announce the release date for their sophomore full length ‘Pink Lemonade’ and the Pink Lemonade album tour. The album will be released independently through MGM on May 9th. It’s been a while between drinks, so those boffins at CIM HQ ran focus groups day and night to hone in on exactly what would satiate the hungry masses, baying for more sexy tunes from the Melbourne quintet… The results are conclusive! Turns out it’s all about quantity over quality, so this thing clocks in at over 60 minutes! That’s longer than an episode of The Block, and since that’s about to leave a gaping cultural void the guys figured it would be the perfect time to step up and slide up into that void like a warm kitten.
‘Pink Lemonade’ was produced by Tom Larkin and CIM in various dens of aural inequity around Melbourne, mixed by one of Melbourne’s brightest, rising stars in the audio world, Andrei Eremin and mastered by Howie Weinberg. CIM funded the entire effort by offering some spiffy fan pre-order packs. You could snag everything from a lizard costume, soaked in singer Christopher’s sensual sweat, to a Cadillac, ah yep… A goddamn CADILLAC. Some of the remaining items are still available here: http://closureinmoscow.bigcartel.com
Pink Lemonade was designed to be a voyage that is greater than the sum of it’s parts. It is the tale of a hapless fool’s descent down the rabbit hole and through the Chapel Perilous… Smashing through the 4th wall with a novelty hulk fist, it is a fable laced with subversive sludge that will seep into your minds eye and stir your soul like a rich pumpkin soup.
The recorded component of Pink Lemonade is only half the fun… Don’t miss your opportunity to catch up close, the tentacled mass that is the Closure In Moscow live show, where you get to be the innocent hentai babe, and it’s a one way ticket on the bullet train to pleasure town… New tunes will be played, faces will be melted, engagement rings will be smelted out of all the used guitar strings and the guys will be betrothed to all that attend. United forever by the power of music, praise be!
