Clearlake is releasing a new album finally!
"This might just be the news you've all been waiting for... so much so, it probably deserves its own paragraph. So here it is...
Amber will be released on January 16, 2006!
You heard. Smash open that piggy bank and don't spend too much on Christmas presents. The tracklisting for said masterpiece runs as follows:
No Kind Of Life
Good Clean Fun
You Can't Have Me
I Hate It That I Got What I Wanted
Here To Learn
Dreamt That You Died
It's Getting Light Outside
45 minutes of joy that mean that the "Album of 2006" polls might as well all be closed before they even begin. Before that, there will be a limited 7" release of Good Clean Fun, backed with a remix by Caribou, released into the wild on 5 December."
Also they are going to be playing live in the UK:
"You can catch the band in action headlining the Brighton Rocks night at the Concorde 2 venue on December 4, followed by some London action at the Borderline on December 7. All the details are on the live page as ever... ticketing details will be added once we have them.
With the album and single approaching, there's now a fair bit of 'Lake action on the Interweb. An news article on the American music site Pitchfork can be read here, and there's also an excellent 30 minute interview with Jason from earlier this year that can be found here; it's a big download but worth the effort!"
