The Crimea Invades America! Album Debut, ‘Tragedy Rocks,’ Confirmed for Release

LWOA SingleBURBANK, CA. (Warner Bros.) – The Crimea, among a handful of the UK’s most critically acclaimed new bands, will embark on their first-ever U.S. tour following the release of “Lottery Winners On Acid EP,” their import EP on Warner Bros. Records. The band’s full-length debut album, “TRAGEDY ROCKS,” is scheduled for release at the end of May 2005. Actual release date will be confirmed shortly.

With a sound characterized by Kerrang as “wistfully ethereality is delightful in its twisted psychadelic tales of love gone awry,” The Crimea features founder and frontman Davey Macmanus, whose literate lyrics and incisive melodies “consolidates all three Kinks eras – Sixties, Seventies, Eighties – in a slick lathering of wit and whimsy,” according to the Austin Chronicle. “Lottery Winners On Acid EP” was produced by the group in their home studio and features the tracks “White Russian Galaxy,” “Baby Boom,” “Bombay Sapphire Coma,” “Opposite Ends” and the title track.

The Crimea will open for Ash and The Bravery on a select series of dates in March, and will additionally appear at the upcoming SXSW conference and festival in Austin, Texas, March 16th-20th, 2005. The Crimea’s complete itinerary follows:

Tue 3/8 Bowery Ballroom New York, NY
Wed 3/9 Theatre Of Living Arts Philadelphia, PA
Thu 3/10 Black Cat Washington, DC
Fri 3/11 Cat’s Cradle Carrboro, NC

Press ShotThe Crimea Added To Ash / The Bravery Tour

Ash/The Bravery’s U.S tour just got a hell of a lot better with the addition of The Crimea to the bottom of the bill. Yes, the band is fronted by Elvis Costello’s son (and features former members of The Crocketts) but don’t hold that against them; they’ve got some great pop-rock tunes. The bands debut album will be released in the U.S. in May. The Lottery Winners on Acid EP is available now.

LOTTERY WINNERS ON ACID
PROBABLY BUY SOME CRAZY SH**

Press ShotI don’t know where I first heard The Crimea …but I do know when I was searching through used CD’s this weekend their EP Lottery Winners on Acid jumped out at me as something I must have. I am definetly enjoying my find. So I was excited to read this from Torr:
