PRETTY DAMN GOOD NEW MUSIC: Colour Revolt "Plunder, Beg, and Curse"

I just got this album through eMusic yesterday, and I wasn't really taking to it by the first listen. I was working at the time, so I just let it play through a second then a third time. I thought I was listening to a different album by accident the second time, but no...it was still Colour Revolt. It seemed much better this time, and by the third listen I was completely hooked. Make no mistake, it's a rock album...a really well written, and ENGAGING rock album that really rises above the MANY others. I'm about to take another stroll through these ten tracks, I suggest you do the same.

"Plunder, Beg, and Curse" will be released April 1st on Fat Possum.

They are on tour with The Breeders starting April 28th, then with Atlanta's own Snowden starting May 12th (sadly no Atlanta date :-( ).
