RELEASE: 07.16.2012 – IFUCKINGLOVEYOU 7″ + 12″

Despite confirmation from both Bang On PR and BB Gun on the July 4th (see below) that the US would also get the vinyl release, it looks like its only going to be available as an import from England, and not until the 24th. We’ve ordered ours from Rough Trade mail order in England and have our fingers crossed that it’ll get here soon…

GIG: 1st UK gig announced – Camden, London July 31st

“sooner than you think” indeed…

Big Black Delta will be at the Barfly in Camden, London at the end of this month, on the 31st.

Promoted by Last.fm, they say this is a unique opportunity to catch the industrial electronic outfit in a tiny London venue before they inevitably take to stages much bigger.” Ain’t that the truth

NEWS: IFUCKINGLOVEYOU is Drowned in Sound’s single of the week

‘IFUCKINGLOVEYOU’ – the worst-named song on the worst-named label – is brilliant. Mainly because it’s absolutely nuts; a crass stomp of distort brass, screaming choirs, and a vocal performance with the kind of hauteur you’d normally associate with glacial electro-pop.

UPDATE: IFUCKINGLOVEYOU vinyl put back 1 week

Emails from Leanne at Bang On PR (UK) and Ibo at BB Gun (USA) who handle PR for BBD in their respective countries, both confirm that the vinyl releases of IFUCKINGLOVEYOU (7″ and 12″) have been put back from the 9th of July to the Monday, July 16th. Which is slightly odd as releases usually come out on a Tuesday in the U.S.
