We have just launched a mini site for ACCELERATE today which you can access by clicking on the banner on the left-hand side of the main page at remhq.com. The site features artwork, track list details, information on pre-ordering, Supernatural Superserious audio and video, tour information, and more. We will be adding audio and video content to the site over the coming days so please stay tuned!
SUPERNATURAL SUPERSERIOUS NEWS
As mentioned yesterday, SNSS is BBC Radio 2’s “record of the week.” The song has been picking up momentum worldwide, receiving a great deal of airplay and generating lots of excitement; and, oh yeah, you can even share the music with your friends through a ringback on your mobile! Bertis, not necessarily the earliest of adapters, has, of late, amazed his own friends with this feature. What a world!
If you haven’t visited supernaturalsuperserious.com, you should be sure to do so to check out the amazing video editing and submissions there from R.E.M. fans.
And let’s not forget about the incredible daily downloadable HD footage at ninetynights.com, the Vincent Moon/R.E.M. web site which, for the previous 52 nights, has showcased a clip a day leading up to the release of ACCELERATE on April 1. Today’s feature is a peak at ACCELERATE track #4, Hollow Man, shot during the recording sessions in Athens.
NPR WEB/BROADCAST OF SXSW
As mentioned in a previous post, NPR will broadcast and webcast (and possibly even podcast!) R.E.M.’s performance at Stubb’s Bar-B-Q on March 12th. Stubb’s opening acts Dead Confederate, Johnathan Rice, Papercranes, and Summerbirds in the Cellar will be a big part of the night’s multiple “casts” as well.
Be sure to stay tuned for more tour information, coming your way early next week. Visit the LIVE section for a full menu of tour dates.
