Amanda Ghost on TV!! And Gigs!!

This comes from a press release on Amanda Ghost's website:

In March 2005 Amanda Ghost performed at SXSW, Los Angeles and NYC to showcase their new songs to fans and media. On the back of the SXSW performance AMANDA GHOST has been invited to perform live on ABC'S JIMMY KIMMEL on July 19th 2005. This is the first time in the history of Jimmy Kimmel that an unsigned UK act is booked!

While over in the States for the TV performance the band will also play 2 live shows -

the scheduled shows are:

July 20th - LOS ANGELES @ KNITTING FACTORY - ON STAGE: 07:00PM (7021 Hollywood Blvd.)

July 21st - NYC @ SCENIC - ON STAGE: 08:00pm (25 Avenue B)

The Armenian director Johnny Shahnazarian toured with the band back in March and filmed a 45 min. documentary and promo for MONSTER. The promo and an 8 min. teaser are available now.

On returning to the UK the band went back to the studio to finish the new album and also played a series of London shows. Aside from the band, Amanda has co-written songs on James Blunt's UK 'top 3' album including the current single "You're Beautiful" (no 2 in the single charts). In Europe the album is ear marked to be one of the biggest sellers in 2005 and will receive a major push from Atlantic in the States.

This month AMANDA GHOST will release their first single for over 4 years. The track 'MONSTER' will be made available by Universal Digital in digital format only from July 18th onwards. Download details to follow.

Hi everyone!

I received info from Derry regarding his long lost solo material!! Looks like it's going to be available SOON and he wants to make sure you all get to hear it!

Here are the specifics:

* Website will be ready in 2 to 3 weeks.

* Site will have a compilation album with 20 songs on it: (demos, live stuff, stuff i did with James etc). It will be a white label of 1000 copies and will cost £9.99 plus postage. There will be ltd edition stuff included in the package, and im also going to have a remix file sent out so people can do their own remixes.

* I'm very excited and have over 30 new songs to record. There will be lots of albums and soundtrack stuff on the way.

* Downloads will be available soon on my site,and all live recordings will be made available as soon as recorded (i.e the next day hopefully).

* the Kid Blak music are laid back sad songs, while DG Brownson is mostly programed, New Order-ish (most of it though is done live in one take, then built up).

* The 20 odd song compilation called "Shores" can be ordered now via this email: derrysmusic@emf-theband.com

More info as it becomes available!

A special treat...
Happy New Year to all EMF fans!

I have a very, VERY special treat for all of you (good things come to those who wait eh?)

I have got for you the rare, never before seen music video for Bleeding You Dry. Those of you who read the message board (and if you're not, what are you doing??) know that this came up in conversation with Mark a little while back. Well I promised that if I got a new video card, I'd post it. So, I'm keeping my promise. :)

I hope you enjoy it. When you're done watching it, post on the board about it!! Mark really wants to know your opinions, and you wouldn't want to disappoint him now would you?? ;)
