We are happy to announce the upcoming release of our new album "Jungle of Twang". It will be released by Kamikaze Records of Germany. The album is ...GREAT, we recorded it at Circo Perroti Studios, Gijon Spain, last December.
Check out our tour dates, we'll be touring a bit around Germany and Switzerland this Spring and Summer, and are to keep doing so for the next year.
Editors note: received by email from Janne Haavisto:
There sometimes comes a time in a band's career when things are still great, but you can sense that the natural lifespan is nearing the end. It´s nobody's fault, there´s no reason for it, it just happens. That's where we are with Laika & The Cosmonauts now. We love the band & music and are very proud of all the gigs and records we've done. We don't wanna our good career to go where we end up being a bored/boring bar band that plays too few gigs to keep it tight, with the same songs all the time and gradually keeps getting worse and worse and in the process start hating the music and each other. So...
When we release the compilation, it will be , not only to celebrate our 20th anniversary, but also to enhance the enjoyment of our farewell tour and make it an appropriate finale for the 20 year on the road - we intend to have fun and play great gigs! We'll do as many shows as possible in Finland in August-November and then October in the USA.
We'll be playing the East coast, hopefully the West coast too and then play our final gigs at the Continental Club in Austin, our home away from home (Oct 31st and Nov 1st) and...after which we'll have a few beers and relax, you know...
Just thought I'd let everyone know, there is gonna be a battle of the surf bands here in Austin, Texas on Friday, April 4th. It will be Los SuperAvengers, The Nematoads, and 3 Balls Of Fire.....its gonna be a good show, all three are very good. You can find all three of them on Myspace.
The venue is At The Oaks in Manor near Austin, Texas. All ages, $5.
