The Blood Brothers reveal album details

Official press release: The Blood Brothers have confirmed the title and U.S. release date of their fifth album: Young Machetes will be released October 10, 2006 on V2. Already named one of Alternative Press' Most Anticipated Albums of 2006, Young Machetes was recorded at Robert Lang Studios in the band's native Seattle with the help of producers Guy Piccioto (late of Fugazi) and John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, The Gossip, Blonde Redhead), who produced the band's acclaimed 2004 release Crimes. The Blood Brothers' previous effort Crimes -described by Vice as "sex at the speed of sound" and moving URB to declare "Any hope for America's young starts here"-pushed the envelope of the Blood Brothers' sound further than ever while resulting in the band's most focused work to date. With the surprisingly sing-along anthemic chorus of single "Love Rhymes With Hideous Car Wreck" and the blistering groove of "Teen Heat," the album earned rave reviews from magazines ranging from Stuff (who gave the album 4-stars) to Blackbook to Spin to Resonance. The complete but unsequenced track listing for Young Machetes is: "Set Fire To The Face On Fire," "We Ride Skeletal Lightning," "Lazer Life," "Camouflage Camouflage," "You're The Dream, Unicorn!" "Vital Beach," "Rat Rider," "Spit Shine Your Black Clouds," "1,2,3,4 Guitars," "Lift The Veil, Kiss The Tank," "Nausea Shreds Your Head," "Johnny Ripper/Stevie Ray Hendrixson," "Huge Gold AK-47," "Street Wars, Exotic Foxholes," "The Giant Swan." Look for a Fall tour announcement in the coming weeks.
