Video Interview w/ FBH

Above is an absolutely wonderful video of Chris Ewen, Claudia Gonson and Stephin Merritt discussing the history of Future Bible Heroes and offering some brief knowledge about the new album, Partygoing.  It's full of really wonderful information, including some very brief tidbits of songs off the new record and some super adorable footage of the three band members dancing.  Watch it!

Future Bible Heroes Live Date

Future Bible Heroes have announced their first live show in over a decade!  They will be performing at the Chickfactor 21 Festival at The Bell House in NYC on June 12th.  Stephin Merritt is not scheduled to perform, but a show featuring Christopher Ewen and Claudia Gonson sounds lovely in and of itself.

Tickets are available here.

I hope this means that future live dates are in the works, though I admit that seems unlikely.  It'd sure be great to be proven wrong, though.
