    SB6 City of Thieves has finally arrived! Launch party news!!

    Post by barneyboom on Wed May 20, 2009 5:18 pm

    Hello Chummers

    Well, there is one main item of news today and that one main item of news is the item of news that says ‘the CDs are here! The CDs are here!’ That’s right, this morning we’re piling into a living room and signing the poster booklets of hundreds of digipak CDs that contain our magnum opus City of Thieves on compact disc digital audio. For those of you who have missed the craziness, the original CD production company went into liquidation three days before the release of our record and then neglected to let us know this fact for a good few weeks. A lovely company called NoonMedia stepped in to turn the CDs around in record time and that’s why we have them in our hands now, late but beautiful, like a well-baked cake. So, it seems they’ll be on their way to everyone ordered right about now. The new shop and iTunes release date for the album is the 1st June (although some good stores may have them in before that) so please pop into your local music store on this day and buy a copy. We’ll be rescheduling the acoustic instores to come right after this current UK tour so look out for that...

    Here’s some snippits of the super reviews that the record has been getting. I do hope they may be enough to get any doubters out there to go into their local record store and say to the good storekeep "Sir, I would like a copy of the new Sonic Boom Six record City of Thieves and I want it now".

    ‘This isn’t good, it’s well beyond that and deep into the realms of something special’ - 9/10 Rock Sound
    ‘This is witty, vital and utterly infectious fare.’ - KKKK Kerrang!
    ‘City of Thieves’ is a paranoid mash-up of modern life set to a soundtrack that feels inexorably, thrillingly now.’ - 8/10 NME
    ‘It’s smart, joyous music that has plenty to say and does so eloquently.’ - Big Cheese!
    ‘As Sonic Boom Six evolves from its early roots it’s safe to say things are just getting better and better. Absolutely storming!’ – Punktastic.com

    OK, as for the current UK tour, everything’s been going superbly and Random Hand have been slamming it every night. Special thanks to all the local supports we’ve had, shoutouts to Gecko, Myth of Unity, NY-Lon, Magic Skool Bus, A War Against Sound, Overthrow, Harijan, Stand Out Riot, The Hijacks, Bombskare (for Ben) and the Hostiles for kicking arse beyond the call of duty. And if I’ve forgotten anyone, I’m sorry. And thank you all.

    On the subject of the tour there are a couple of points worth underlining. Despite any shenanigans this way and that, the Liverpool gig on the 26th May is going ahead. Don’t believe the rumours. And we’ve got the awesome Stopouts and the City Rats on there so it’s going to be a good’un. Get your tickets...

    http://www.barflyclub.com/liverpool/whatson/event/23052.aspx#Sonic+Boom+Six+%2b+Random+Hand+%2b+The+Stopouts+%2b+City+Rats

    The Asylum in Birmingham has had a licensing problem which means the show has had to be moved. The Wagon & Horse is now the venue to be at. Apparently it’s a little music-lover’s pub so we’re all gonna squeeze in and have a rate old time. Gonna be a sweaty one! That’s the Wagon & Horse, Birmingham on the 27th of May, put it in your diary.

    And finally, last but not least, we openly implore all our fans a favour. A big, big favour. On May 31st we are playing London Underworld. What with all the recent problems with the CD release, things have become a bit problematic in the world of the Boom. If we could have a send-off party for the tour where kids made it their duty to come and rock out then we would simultaneously be celebrating the release of the City of Thieves album and the fact that the whole ordeal hasn’t left us rolling around on the floor with grey hair and foaming mouths. We have, in addition to Random Hand, the awesome Hellcat Records band Left Alone as well as our London reggae-punk buddies the Skints to bolster an already terrific bill. This is going to be a massively important gig for us, a celebration of this record making it into the big wide world and a chance to get together and have a massive party. It’s a Sunday, so please check your local Megabus service or what have you, make a day out of it. Come down to London and lets rock the place to the floor. It’s pretty much your duty.

    Tickets are here...

    Enjoy the album! Let us know what you think!! Take it easy!!!

    We have one about that size but it sucks. Tried cooking bacon and the whole room was filled with smoke (quite a big room too).

    I need one of these mini kitchens! I have get my younger (and humongously taller) brother to flip the fan on for me every time I try and cook anything. If he's at work I simply have to starve.... or microwave things.

    for your general information, its called a 'range cooker'. and yes, it is rather good.

    Oh, and the album. Lol. Had it on in my car for the past week and a half so I can attempt to learn the words for the two times i see the Boom this coming week. As with most albums I listen to, on first playing I wasn't too sure about it but after a few plays I'm totally hooked on it. Yeeeeeeeeeeeah.

    Definitely growing on me on repeat listens. I like the rap tracks a lot more than i have done on the previous albums, they're probably my highlight! Floating Away is reaaaallly good also.

    You should send Jericho to the WWE, it could well be his new theme.
