Wondering Where You've Been

The Smithereens sent around an update via TheirSpace detailing upcoming projects. Wow!

JANUARY 27TH, 2009
This is the live video counterpart (A 5-camera shoot) to our recently-released CD The Smithereens Live in Concert, which was recorded at our old stomping grounds, The Court Tavern, in New Brunswick, NJ.

MEET THE SMITHEREENS/B-SIDES THE BEATLES - 12" Audiophile Vinyl 2-Disc Gatefold Deluxe LPs Release (KOCH)
This is both of our two recent BEATLES TRIBUTE CDs in 12" Audiophile Vinyl packaged together in one collectible fold out/gatefold sleeve/package, and there is also talk that comic legend Jack Davis (MAD MAGAZINE & EVERYTHING ELSE!) might be personally signing/autographing the "B-SIDES" cover he did for us.

MARCH 24TH, 2009
A brand-new Smithereens original album/CD (the first all-new original compositions/recordings studio CD in 10 years!) (KOCH) This is being written in now and will be recorded in New Jersey in December 2008.

MAY 5TH, 2009
This is our take/interpretation of one of our favorite albums by one of our favorite bands ever, The Who, in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of its original release in 1969. We are doing a one-disc abbreviated "Live At Leeds"-styled version of "Tommy.
Regarding the new studio album, it's about f-ing time! Enough with the tributes and live albums - well, keep 'em coming as long as they don't interfere with new stupid albums!
