Can’t Wait for New Politics’ New Album!!

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

new-politics-a-bad-girl-in-harlemI’ve been obsessed with New Politics’ song “Harlem” ever since they preformed it for the New Now Next Awards!  I’m excited to say it won’t be long before the band’s new album A Bad Girl in Harlem comes out on May 21, 2013.  Watching New Politics perform for the award shows was a great preview of the energy that they will no doubt bring to the stages on their tour with Fall Out Boy over the next few months.  Unfortunately for me, the concerts featuring both bands anywhere reasonably close to me sold out ridiculously quickly due to the fact that FOB is playing at smaller venues than they did before their return. (Plus I’m too poor to afford the tickets right now.) But if you’re interested in seeing New Politics without FOB there’s still time between now and the 25th.

(The cost of which is charged at the time and the remainder of the $7.99 will be charged when the album releases.) In the mean time, I know I’m going to be rewatching the video for “Harlem” on repeat until I’ve memorized the mad dance skills of lead singer David Boyd as he and the band party through the video and run around the subway and New York City’s streets.
