Stereophonics: Keep Calm and Carry On

Stereophonics: Keep Calm and Carry On (album cover)“Which brings us to Keep Calm and Carry On. Named after World War Two posters that seeped back into the public consciousness at the peak of the recession, it’s a title seemingly designed to provoke critics into making obvious remarks about them calmly plodding along and getting on with the business of selling out arenas.” Read full review.

The album is officially released tomorrow, Monday 16th November!

Stereophonics: Keep Calm and Carry On

As I blogged about the forthcoming album from the Stereophonics earlier (which rocketed my blog reader-count), great to see this now!

Glad to see that they’ve used the original design as their poster cover, I do believe. I’m going to have to get a copy of the album now… and a real one, rather than an iTunes download!

Stereophonics boost KCCO Visitor Count

stereophonicsgoogle

Wow, I was wondering why my blog stats had shot up (aside from my blog post about the Loire Valley, which for some reason gets me the most visitors every day – if you’re one of them, I hope you find some other interesting information on this blog!), and saw it was coming through on the Stereophonics post, re: their new album “Keep Calm and Carry On”, so I checked Google, and, despite only posting 6 hours ago, I’m top of the search in Google for “Stereophonics Keep Calm and Carry On” – amazing work by Google! Who knows how long it will stay like that, but…

Stereophonics: Keep Calm and Carry On

StereophonicsThe Stereophonics album ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ will be released on 16th November 2009.

In advance, the band will be playing a special one-off gig at Cardiff Castle on Saturday 3rd October, previewing a number of songs from this album (no artwork yet available, I’ll be really interested to see if they use the poster design).

The band first headlined the castle back in 1998 in front of 10,000 people and in keeping with this they’re selling tickets at the exact same price for the afternoon show – at £12.50 each.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Wednesday 9th September) on Stereophonics.com, first-come, first-served.

Interesting to see the Stereophonics use of social media, and would love to see why they decided to call their album this, or just knew it would get them lots of publicity! Clutch have also used the words in lyrics, although this article explains why.

Thanks for the comment, led to: “What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?  There’s a poster that somebody bought the other day which said “keep calm and carry on”. That’s a bit of good advice, especially for us. That sums up our life.”
