Live shows are the best way to promote just about anything, including your new release.
Hitting the road hard will increase your fan base and help you get press for your album, but booking is something that takes time - and time is at a premium when you're releasing your album. If you're experienced at booking your shows, then you probably have a database of existing contacts to make your job easier.
If you haven't booked shows before, be sure to allow some time for getting some gigs set up around your release date. Releasing an album costs money ; can you afford it? Putting all of the costs on your credit card is not necessarily a good plan. Don't plan for, say, a massive tour and hope that it turns into a money maker.
Ending with a blast of punk rock, the song shows it's not all light and has a bite to it. As for the lyrics, they sort of ruined the song for me. With lines like "butt now your white is mixed in with my brown, and now our feces is one with the ground," I found the song to be quite disgusting. Leaving the lyrics behind, "John Holmes" is a smooth, well-done instrumental. Tight horns, soft percussion, soothing keyboards, a fair amount of bass, and a guitar that leaves behind the distortion make this song a very relaxing number that can be enjoyed sitting down or standing up while you're skanking to the beat.
To be perfectly honest, this has to be one of my favorite tracks on the CD, and is definitely an album stand out. Keyboards are sprinkled in for flavor, and they do a good job of it.Oct 06, · I'm asking because I'm trying to figure out whether I've simply had a run of bad luck acquiring flawed CDs lately, or if it's finally time to retire/replace my Sony CD player. It's not a super-ancient unit (I don't recall it ever having problems with longer CDs before) but it's seen at least intermittent use all the years I've had it.
