Watch for the upcoming "C" Album of Fr&uum;vous Odd Songs and Arcana.
Greetings "Früheads," As many of you are aware, True North Records welcomes Moxy Früvous to the label with their excellent new Don Dixon (REM, Matthew Sweet, Marshall Crenshaw, Smithereens) produced album, Thornhill. The album will be in stores August 24.
We're very excited to be working with the band and have become aware that some of you are curious as to why the Canadian record release is approximately 2 weeks behind the American release.
The answer is really quite straight forward -- our 'deal' with the band was only just recently signed and it takes us a certain amount of time from that point to set our systems in place to properly promote the record and ship it to the stores. It¹s very important to us that we give this record all the attention it deserves.
Please, rest assured that we are working hard to get the guys the recognition they are due in their home market and appreciate your enthusiasm and patience with regard to the release.
