Afrobots (Tony Haajar of At the Drive In, Sparta and Todd Weinstock of Glassjaw, Men, Women, and Children) has announced a show on June 11th at Tommy Chong and Snoop Dogg's Spring Gathering Festival. In addition, you can watch a music video from the band in the replies.
We're giving away two copies of Men Women & Children's new single "Ultra Hot Volcano" on 7" vinyl; each copy is hand-numbered. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Men Women & Children" and we will pick two winners at random tomorrow (the 11th) at noon PST.
Men Women & Children will be releasing their new single "Ultra Hot Volcano" digitally and on limited-edition vinyl on May 6th through IAMSOUND Records. The vinyl (hand-numbered and red vinyl) will be on sale online, at their shows the week before release date, including Bamboozle, and is also available for pre-order here.
Update: The chat is now over. We'd like to thank Men, Women & Children for joining us tonight and Nick for staying for so long. Their new single will be out April 29th. Men, Women & Children will be chatting in this thread starting at approximately 8 p.m. EST. They will be chatting under the names TJRexone, SkullyMWC, NickMWC, ToddMWC and RickMWC. Come in and talk to them about their last album, what they've been up to the past couple years, their future plans, or just to say hello.
Nick from Men, Women and Children has started a blog where he'll dive into his record collection and post some MP3s, showcase some of his friends and their projects that deserve attention, and keep fans up-to-date when the band starts writing and recording again.
Below is a letter from Men, Women & Children about how all of their equipment was stolen. And when I say all, I mean all. If there is anything you can do to help them get back on their feet, please head to their MySpace page and click the donate button; buying merch, or their album and songs on iTunes, will also do wonders for them. Every little bit helps! In upbeat news, though, the band has posted a new song, "Time For The Future," on MySpace.
Men, Women, & Children are back from the UK and currently on tour with Rx Bandits, The Exit, Desa, and I Am The Avalanche. On July 15th they will head out on Tour with Brand New. Check out tour dates here.
Men, Women & Children is sorry to announce that they will be postponing next week's trip to the UK. The band is looking to re-book the show for the weekend of July 7th to 10th, most likely at the same venue. The good news is that there is a chance they'll play more than one show that weekend. The band would like to apologize to those who have purchased tickets; they'll let you know refund information as soon as they know (or if you can use the same ticket for the July show).
Men, Women, & Children's video for "Dance In My Blood" will begin airing this Monday on Fuse's Oven Fresh. Remember that Oven Fresh is based on how many votes a video gets so make sure to vote for them.
If you're having any trouble finding the new Men, Women & Children album in stores, let them know as a comment on their MySpace page. Tell them exactly which store(s) (store name, city and state) you looked. They will make sure these stores get copies. You can also ask any CD store (except stupid Circuit City) to simply order a copy of the album for you, if they don't have it. If you do this, please still let the band know you had trouble finding it.
I will be interviewing the drummer and back-up vocalist for Men, Women, and Children soon, so please leave any questions that you might have for him. Also pre-order their upcoming, self-titled album on Smart Punk and get a free, limited edition vinyl.
Men, Women & Children's hilariously awesome video for "Dance In My Blood" has been added to their media player. It was done by the same guy who did the last Straylight Run video (I don't currently remember his name). Also, due to artwork delays, the release of their album has been pushed back a week until March 21st. I've seen all the art and it's definitely worth a week's wait.
