Mark your calendars! You’re going to want to remember where you were and what you were doing on August 21, 2012. That’s the day that PRAYER BREAKFAST‘s fabled and elusive debut full-length album FAMILY BUSINESS will see the light of day!
Recording began on this album on Halloween night, 2008….TWO THOUSAND EIGHT! It’s been slowly pecked away at ever since, but starting a record on Halloween night does not bode well for future success. Since the recording process began many people associated with Prayer Breakfast, and even members of the band, have been mysteriously maimed, fallen on hard times of bad luck, and even disappeared completely.
So, in an effort to settle the score, we decided to release the completed album on cassette tapes in August. It’s still hot as hell – to appease the devils, but it’s almost fall – which the humans appreciate!
In another effort to shake the Family Business hex, we’re releasing TWO NEW SONGS from the album each week until the album is out!!!! Starting now, you can visit our Bandcamp page twice a week until the release date to hear a new song from the album. Two new songs…every week. How’s that for good Karma?
You can also preorder the cassette starting now, and we’ll ship them as soon as possible, which will likely be well before the release date.
You heard right. Beginning now and lasting only until they’re gone, you can purchase the brand new album I’ll Be Somewhere Listening For My Name from Mike Adams & His Dust Collectors by clicking right here.
Compared to Mike’s previous releases under the Dust Collectors name, this album is more defined, yet more sprawling than ever before. Built up around a found tape loop consisting of a pitched-down coin spinning on a table top, this heavy droning experiment in distorted synthesizers and manipulated vocal improvisations is delivered in one 46 minute piece for a long and slow digestion. No microphones were used in the making of this record.
Each CD-R comes in a beautiful piece of hand-made packaging created specially for housing and presenting this experiment and it’s end result.
Supplies are VERY limited (only 30 hand-numbered copies exist), so act fast.
Mark your calendars! We just received a telegram from Hollywood, California with some big, BIG news…
On April 16, 2012 point your satellite dish, or tune your dial, or direct your web browser to the Oxygen Network’s big time hit television programming sensation “Bad Girls Club” so you can hear Alexander the Great’s tune “Postcard”! (First heard on the XRA Records release “Faces Change”) The song will play sometime during episode #812, “Breakup Breakdown”. It’s sure to be a riveting, explosive nite of television. Please join us and tell all your pals to tune in!
I want every head bowed, and every eye closed…nobody looking around….Now, who likes music videos? I see that hand. I see those hands! OPEN YOUR EYES! YOUR SALVATION HAS ARRIVED!!
and here it is : Bro. Stephen – Tears on Tape (Official Video)
