I was hit with all kinds of good news last week. Almost Kings will be releasing their new album, The Re-Introduction, in mid-September. Then, one of my friends sent me this:
I’ve been eagerly awaiting more stuff from Lynam since listening to a few songs that David had on his phone back in, like, December or something. Needless to say, I am very very excited about the next two months!
Oh, and here’s the latest video from Almost Kings. The track is titled “Still Fucked Up.”
A few months ago, Almost Kings bassist Danny Helms let me listen to “Never Gonna Happen” on his phone. My interest was piqued immediately because it’s them but…different. It made me very excited for the upcoming album (and I will undoubtedly be posting a review the instant it hits my hands).
They have now released a video for the song. Please check it out and give them some feedback! 🙂
No, today is not my birthday. Monday was, but I wasn’t anywhere near a computer so I couldn’t blog about my absolutely amazing weekend!!!!!
Friday night, we went to see Jude Buckingham and Almost Kings. The performances were epic, as always, and Boze pulled me onstage during “Five Foot Hurricane.” Almost Kings did a few new songs (and premiered one over the club’s PA before their set) and let me just say that I already know I’m going to love the album. I didn’t get my usual post-show time with the guys because I had apparently partied a little too hard during…
Anyway, the following night, my friends threw me a little party at their house. We had breakfast for dinner–lemon poppy seed waffles, red velvet waffles, bacon, blackberry sauce, a tropical fruit compote, ham rolls, and a drink that consisted of watermelon and Malibu rum. My parents ate with us and stayed long enough to check out my gifts, then they went home and the rest of us watched lame horror movies until bedtime.
It was truly a fantastic weekend, filled with most of my favorite people, music, laughter, and love. I couldn’t have wished for a better celebration. 🙂
