Are you ready to rock out with new Hanson?

I know you've been waiting for this one all day

Hanson is returning to the music world - does that mean the "supergroup" Taylor was in last year failed???

The word is June 8 brings Shout it Out, the brothers' fifth album. It will also feature guests Bob Babbitt (Funk Brothers) and Jerry Hey (horn arranger who's worked with Jacko, Quincy Jones, Earth Wind & Fire).

in their own words - "The anatomy of our band is similar to a '70s rock band - three guys from the Midwest who grew up listening to '50s and '60s soul, who are mixing guitars, with vintage keys and melodic songs," Taylor Hanson says. Adds Isaac, "We've never stopped aspiring to the great songwriters and performers who struck a chord with us first, that early rock 'n' rock roll and soul music from Chuck Berry to Otis Redding. We've rediscovered that aspiration on this record. There's a little more swing and a little more air."

IF you want to hear their new single, "Thinking Bout Somethin" go here, but don't blame me if you get caught up in Jon Gosselin or Justin Bieber news.

But looking back at that song title, if the boys are going to go countri-fied with the title, then shouldn't they have done it for the whole song and made it Thinkin' 'bout Somethin' - I'm just sayin'

I'll also say you could have showed me that picture up there, and asked me to identify the band - I would've had no fucking clue

and in case you were wondering, i have NO intentions of reviewing this album.

i'd be more interested in these -
  • Killem's new video for "Spiral" - releasing Reflections of Decline on April 30 (Noisehead)
  • Basanos will release Instincts (Noisehead) on May 28 - album trailer
  • Farm School Holocaust signs to Noisehead

  2. Tinted Windows has always been a side-project, it was never intended to replace the band Hanson (Fountains Of Wayne or Cheap Trick) in any way.
