Thanks to WRS, Switzerland’s English radio station, for playing our track “Even” and welcome to our new Swiss and French fans.
We are incredibly excited to announce that as of today, our new song “Alarms” has been added to regular rotation at WFNX 101.7 here in Boston. We are honored and proud to have the first station in the country to play bands like Nirvana, The Killers, and Foster the People, on our side, not to mention one of the last remaining defenders of new rock on terrestrial radio (The Joy Formidable, one of our favorite new bands, is also in rotation). For those of you outside of Massachusetts, you can listen online at WFNX.com or 92.1 in New Hampshire. More updates soon to come…
We’re playing WFNX’s secret Alternatour show this Sunday in Boston with Mona. There are only two ways to get in: listen to WFNX and win tickets, or win them from us. Over the next three days, we’ll be giving away three pairs of tickets to RIBS email alerts subscribers. Make sure you sign up here to win tickets.
Listen to the WFNX Morning Show (101.7 FM Boston) this Thursday for a band interview.
Fletcher of Boston’s WFNX and Boston Phoenix music editor Michael Marotta talk RIBS, give away a bunch of stuff on-air, and preview our upcoming 5/5 show at Great Scott. They also promise to buy you all screwdrivers.
Boston Phoenix music editor Michael Marotta appears as a guest on this morning’s Breakfast Show on Boston’s rock station, WFNX 101.7, to talk about his “Class of 2011: Boston’s 11 Best New Bands” story.
Skip to 3:45 to hear “Please Don’t Go” from the upcoming Locrian Singles (coming January 25th).
Were you awake this morning at the ungodly hour of 9am?
I was, and honestly, I don’t know how you people do it. But with a little help from the amphetamine juice called 5 Hour Energy Boost, a few fruitty bottles of Powerade Zero and my Little Jetta That Could ambitiously motoring up Route 1A all the way to Lynn, I dropped by the WFNX radio studio this morning to be a guest on the Breakfast Show with Fletcher and Henry Santoro.
The subject was this week’s “Class of 2011: Boston’s 11 Best New Bands” feature in the Boston Phoenix, with Stereo Telescope’s “Geography” and RIBS‘ “Please Don’t Go” getting some early drive-time airplay. The former was our MP3 of the Week back in August, and the latter will take that high honor later this month before their Locrian Singles release party at TT The Bear’s Place on January 28 (don’t tip off competing news outlets, k?).
So yeah, in case you slept in (mad jellz) or had a board meeting or whatever it is that normal people do at 9am, check out an mp3 of the appearance below.
Thanks to everyone who tipped us off that they heard “Even” on Boston Accents, WFNX’s locals-only show last night.
