Yes, that’s right. Vacation, the new album from The Blank Tapes, is available NOW at iTunes in a Deluxe Edition, featuring 2 bonus tracks and an iTunes-exclusive PDF booklet featuring lyrics and some never-before-seen images from the making of the Vacation cover art. Stoked.
This album is great…but don’t take our word for it. We’ve partnered with our favorite streaming partner, Rdio, to feature Vacation all this week before the LPs and CDs hit stores next Tuesday. Listen to Vacation in its entirety over at Rdio all this week, for FREE! Just sign up and press PLAY!
All this is great, but if you’re like me, you’re still waiting for the LP or CD of this great album. The LP in particular is awesome, it comes with a download of the full album PLUS the 7-song digital Holy Roller bonus EP with a few tracks you won’t find anywhere else! And it all sounds great to boot.
Both the CD and LP will be available at your local record store (as well as Amazon, etc…) May 14, but you can order your copy TODAY from the Antenna Farm Store and we will ship it to you within 24 hours so you’ll have your copy by release date! So what are you waiting for?!?!
Finally, The Blank Tapes just wrapped a month of shows supporting Matt Costa all over the US. Is the hardest working band in show business going to take a break? Are you kidding?!?! Touring IS the Vacation and this is a year-round affair. New tour dates for May, June and beyond are below!!
