THE B-52'S - "Funplex"

The B-52's have signed to Astralwerks and will release their first album in 16 years on February 26th, 2008. The new disk "Funplex" was recorded in Athens, Georgia and produced by Steve Osborne (Doves, New Order, Happy Mondays).

Glenn Mendlinger, Astralwerks label manager says, "We are thrilled to be bringing The B-52's music to a new generation of intergalactic fans. Cindy, Fred, Kate, and Keith have made an album that is incredibly fresh, dynamic and perhaps most importantly, quintessentially The B-52's ... instantly recognizable, instantly fun."

Tomorrow night The B-52's share the stage with The Rapture for a special Halloween show at The Roseland Ballroom. Last I heard there are still tickets available.
