I Didn't Mean It

Things are picking up a bit for Ames-based The Envy Corps. They're finishing their debut CD and this month, they're releasing an EP over in the UK. They're currently touring there now so it seems they wanted to get a little product into their hands. Nothing new on that EP if you already own their independently released EP. I'm going to say EP again for the hell of it. EP.

Nate at Zzz Records in Des Moines announced this to his email list:

For those of you who are fans of Ames rockers The Envy Corps,
listen up:
Vertigo Records is going to be releasing a double 7" single called the

"Story Problem EP" in England later this month. There will be 4 songs
on the EP, and it will allegedly only be available on vinyl. Since it's
an import, it will be a bit on the high side (looks like we'll be selling
them for about $11.00). However, if you want one, you may want to place a
pre-order to make sure we have enough for all. By the way, we still
have a few copies of their latest CD at $7.99, too.
Sounds great, but you can already pre-order (release date: 2/22) the Story Problem EP via Amazon. I suppose if you're a collector, you may want to pick up the vinyl too.

Listen to several of the tracks at theirspace. Also note the tune Surgery, which doesn't seem to be on any release yet. Perhaps a preview of their upcoming full-length.

For the local folks, The Envy Corps is coming back to Iowa in March:

Mar 23 2007 5:00P Vaudeville Mews - Early; Des Moines, Iowa

Mar 23 2007 9:00P Vaudeville Mews - Late; Des Moines, Iowa
