It is with great regret that Penguins Kill Polar Bears will be going on Hiatus after our show with The Xcerts next Friday.
We’re not sure how long this Hiatus will last, but we reckon it will end when we announce our next show / tour which will probably be in a few weeks time
Thank you to everyone along the road who has supported us an…. blah blah blah!
You know what grinds my gears? Bands these days who announce they’re splitting up for whatever reason and they’re hardly gone a few years before they announce they’re touring again. I think they rip the piss a wee bit here. Especially when people pay inflated prices to see your last ever show that isn’t your last ever show
Not naming names, but you know who you are!
And LCD Soundsystem - one of my favourite bands of the past 10 years are playing their LAST EVER SHOW this saturday in New York. If they become the ‘big band reunited for Coachella 20xx’ or ‘doing a one off tour to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Sound Of Silver,’ or something equally gash, honestly, I’ll be heartbroken.
Seriously though, LCD - what a band!
Rant over. We’ve been in the Studio this week to record what will be a single we’re going to release some time in May. Quite looking forward to letting you guys hear it, some of you may have already heard it at some of our shows over the past month but it’s going to sound super awesome once Marshall and Gav get their production paws on it and add some beef stock!
We’ve done a B-side as well. Well… not quite a B-side, it’s not as if it’s a 7” single (although that is something we’re looking into for the future), so just think of it as 2 brand new PKPB tracks for you to get into. We felt like we’d be cheating you a bit if we just released one tiny little track, so we did two.
Pretty sure this is going to be a download only thing but if any of you guys would like something more physical then drop us a line on Facebook or email or something and I’m sure we could knock something up. Maybe do a tape, remember tapes? Retro! maybe we could sell them in Urban Outfitters? Oooooohhhh, yeah, I went there!
We can’t wait for you to hear these songs. Especially Ben. Most of you know how excitable Ben can get, well, right now he looks like he’s having a constant seizure, he’s that excited, just shaking all the time saying “oh my god, oh my god, I’m so excited for this new single”
I fear for the boy, I really, really do. One day his constant excitement will give him a stroke.
