“It’s amazing how a band that has been around for so long can still refuse to become stuck in their ways. Fusing electronica, 80s techno-rock, and modern alternative music, [Mumiy] Troll takes the sounds they know best and creates something accessible but still rich in substance.”
Hi All,
Today "Russia's Rolling Stones", Mumiy Troll, releases a digital-only, five-song EP Paradise Ahead which features the band’s first English language songs. The EP is available to all major online retail outlets to coincide with Mumiy Troll’s massive two-month North American tour. Physical copies are available to consumers on demand via Amazon.
Any press interested in review copies, please contact me at tracy@itsalivemedia.com.
Videos for "Paradise Ahead" and "Me Eskimo (Polar Bear)" are available at Mumiy Troll’s YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/MumiyTrollMusic
(Adult content warning - "Me Eskimo (Polar Bear)" features graphic portrayals of human anatomy, large fur-suited bears and six foot pickles committing acts that may freak out anyone looking over your shoulder. But, not you, of course. So consider it NSFW.)
Mumiy Troll's tour has been very exciting, playing to sold-out crowds in Canada and on the East Coast; they'll be hitting Mexico for the first time, too, this month. If you'd like to come out any of the shows listed below, please let me know.
