Just so we are on the same page.
Our record came out digitally on itunes last Tuesday.
You can get it right here
There is controversy over our lyrics in Repetition. We are not singing what you think we are singing. We do not sing,"we got no beef with Repeition", although those lyrics are brilliant that is not what we are saying. Our song says, " I got no beat with Repetition". You see the song is about Ted and his "Gold Boys", ( his orange drums).
This song is very simple it's about not having a beat with Repetition. It is not ironic ...we are not having a beef with Repetition we simply don't have a beat with Repetition.
I hope this clears this up for everyone and if you have any lyrical questions please feel free to ask, that's what we are here for.

We don't know anymore.
It took our record so long to come out that the real artwork disappeared and has been bastardized so many times that we don't know what the real artwork is.
We can't show you the original artwork because it does not reproduce digitally because it is not a traditional pantone color. We originally had an all white album cover with Willowz in gold leafing.
Our album is only out digitally today. The physical release is December 15th so we will wait to see what the cover actually looks like. The gold leafing was vetoed along time ago so we don't have any idea what will appear in stores by physical release date.
So far we have had a Robert Longo designed cover that was shot down by the label. Then we moved into an all white with gold leaf logo that was approved by label. Then secondary label shot down the gold leaf. Some how along the way someone created a cover that had a dent in one of the L's. That is not our record cover. Our record cover is lost in space. Just know that if you go to itunes and download a Willowz album under the name of Everyone you are going to have our new album and that is all you can really ask for in these days of the crumbling music industry.
We are really happy with our album. So please go to itunes and get the goods!

It's been a long wait for our record to come out. We finished recording our album last February 1st. We think the album is coming out next Tuesday November 17th. We firmly believe that our album will be available digitally on Tuesday November 17th. We have been informed that there is a "delay" on our physical release and it won't appear in stores until December 17th; right in time for all you last minute holiday seasonal shoppers. We are happy to see this album come out in any way shape or form. We feel Everyone is our best album to date. We are hoping everyone will be able to find our album on itunes or amazon next week. If not let us know and will try to direct you to the right place.
We are also planning a very short tour in December with a few select cities so please so please pay attention or you will miss the dates. We will post our new dates as soon as they let us in on when and where we are playing.
The interesting thing about the music industry is that you have absolutely no control over your life. We are going to refrain from complaining about the music industry or lack of music industry until our next blog.
We would also like to bring to everyone's attention how amazing the trees are in Central Park at this time of year. If you get a chance to sneak onto a roof top at Central Park South and see the autumn blaze of color it is well worth it. You can also sneak onto any roof on Central Park West but it may not have the same rolling effect as a spot on CPS. This gives us the same feeling as some people get from fireworks.

11/17/2009 8:00 PM at RECORD RELEASE PARTY!!! Willowz DJ set at Home Sweet Home.
131 Chrystie St, Manhattan, New York 10002
Home Sweet Home, this is where we are doing our record release party for our new album, Everyone. We are not playing a "record release" party. We are djing our record and other music that we like. This is our 4th release. We didn't have a record release party for our first album. We had a record release party for our second album, Talk In Circles. That was a really fun record release party although alot of people were disappointed that we had added a fourth member. We also had a dvd release party for our dvd, See In Squares. We had a dvd release party more for the directors than for ourselves. We just lent our music to a 27 visual geniuses and let them do what they wanted to do with our music. This was a night for all the people that worked on the biggest project we have ever attempted and actually pulled off. Chautauqua we had a record release party at Cinespace with the Horrors and Vietnam. That was really fun although Aric smashed a few bottles in the backroom and scared the Horrors. To this day they are still afraid of us. It really wasn't that big of a deal but they are proper Englishmen and we were just kids with a wild guitar player. We are in the age of polite music, polite rock n roll.
In any event our event for our record is going to be a dj party. We are going to be at Home Sweet Home in New York Djing our record not playing our record. It is free and we would love to have all and any of you come and spend the evening with us. It is sure to be a great time. We are happy to DJ our record that almost didn't come out and hopefully will come out on November 17th. We thank Paul Kostabi and Stuart Sikes for making this record possible.
