The Most Serene Republic release new digital EP, tour a largely chaotic republic (America)

Shit, The Most Serene Republic are (despite their band name) violently pointing a gun at my head right now and forcing me to tell you the following!! First off, they want you to know that they have a new song that is available for free download on their website. The song is called “Photocall” and features samples from Jon Brion’s work for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Oh god! Just don’t shoot me, Most Serene Republic! Please! I’ll swear I’ll tell them anything!

Okay, okay, okay: now they want me to tell you that their video for “Heavens to Purgatory,” directed by Ben Steiger, is nominated for the Juno award for “Video of the Year!” Congratulate them! Please! Oh, and, and, they also want me to let you know about their new video for “Jelly Chamber,” which is a track off their new six-song digital EP, Fantasick Impossibliss. The EP is available tomorrow on the band’s own label, Home Of The Rebels, and you can watch the video at the Chocolate Grinder. Here’s the — OW, FUCK — tracklisting:

01. Comeuppance
02. Pink Noise
03. Jelly Chamber
04. The Church of Acorns
05. Ache of Goon
06. Fantasick Impossibliss

So what else do you want me to tell them?! Please, just point the gun away from my baby! I had nothing to do with this review!
