In terms of good days for fans and future fans of the Dum Dum Girls, there are few better days than today. Why? Excellent question, blog reader. Today, we at Sub Pop have announced DDG’s third full length record, Too True, due out on January 28th. And while this alone is cause enough for celebration, there’s more to stoke the flames of excitement: in conjunction with the clothes-maker H&M, Dum Dum Girls have created an amazing video for the Too True album track “Lost Boys and Girls Club”, a beautifully haunting song whose melody will be replaying in your head for the coming days. You can check out that video in the blog embed.
In addition to the new Dum Dum Girls record on the horizon, a new track, and a new video, Too True is now available for pre-order on CD and limited, Loser Edition LP. If you pre-order from SubPop.com, you’ll receive a limited-edition bonus 7” featuring the album track, “Rimbaud Eyes”, and the non-album b-side, “Girls Intuition” (currently unavailable elsewhere). And as is the case with all limited-edition things, both the Loser Edition colored-vinyl LP and the bonus 7-inch single are a first come, first served type of deal. That means order now.
