The Jupiter EP from Wheatus was released on December 23rd 2010 on a pay-what-you-like basis.
If you care about music, the state of the music industry and want to hear what somebody is capable of doing in terms of music production with no interference from dinosaur businessmen with zero talent, you need to hear this record. If you are looking for a record that may just completely change the way you look at music, you need to hear this record.
We’re so eager for you to hear this music that the complete six song EP is available completely free of charge so that everybody can have the opportunity to listen to this. Share the site with your friends and tell them to download the EP even if they are not necessarily the type of individual to listen to rock. Everybody needs to hear this record.
If you enjoy the EP, please donate a few dollars if you can, it would be very much appreciated and will allow for there to be a third volume in the EP series as well as the ability to release future records and play shows for you all.
Pop, Songs & Death: Vol. 1 and 2 are available to download via www.wheatus.com, you can also pre-order the double vinyl set from the site; A deluxe gatefold 180g edition. It is a limited run of 500 pressings, so get ‘um whilst they’re hot, because once they’re sold, these are going to be like gold dust.
Those who donate USD $5 or more will be able to download a digital comic book that accompanies the track Bridges To Jupiter, along with two acoustic bonus tracks. Those who give donations of USD $25 or more will receive a limited edition CD/DVD set. This set consists of a CD featuring the six song EP and two acoustic tracks along with two additional surprise tracks exclusive to this set, The Jupiter DVD, a printed full colour 20 page comic book of Bridges To Jupiter and one of four never before seen pieces of original Wheatus art.
My review of The Jupiter EP will be coming in a few days, I may even do a YouTube video review for it. The whole world gasps at the thought of Hammy Havoc on YouTube.
If you have not yet checked out Vol. 1 of Pop, Songs & Death, then you can download it from www.wheatus.com at the same time as Vol. 2. Both are very different EPs and are a bold new musical direction for Wheatus, it is unlike anything they have ever done before.
If you’re expecting a followup on a par to Teenage Dirtbag and The London Sun, you will find it here, guaranteed. You will find songs better than anything released previously by Wheatus. This is without a doubt, the best record yet and certainly my favourite record in the entirety of 2010.
