It’s only £12 after P&P and all the profits go to Haiti, I’ve ordered one.

Remeber to get your questions in for Jared and Erik as I will be interviewing them at their acoustic gig in Glasgow in April.

Attention MC Lars & Bowling For Soup Fans…

DistortedNews will be interviewing them over the next few months, so if you have a question you want to ask them send them in now, either in a comment, a twitter reply to @DistortedNews24 or @SamLStowe or you could email us at Distortednews@live.com.

There will also be reviews of the gigs and if all things go to plan, the interviews will also be on the DN podcast which I am currently trying to get set up.

Things are looking great for DN in 2010, will you join us in the journey?

Bowling For Soup – Sorry For Partyin’ Review

BFS album cover

BFS album cover

Seven albums in, Bowling For Soup are still going strong, catchy and funny as ever.

Album opener A Really Cool Dance Song is the perfect way to open the album, possibly BFS’s catchiest song yet… and it has keyboards!! A brilliant chorus and lot’s of  funny bits throughout.

No Hablo Inglese, an ode to pretending to be mexican to get out of trouble, is BFS at their finest, catchy, funny and sing-a-long-y.

Then comes My Wena, first single from the album… I don’t want to ruin it so I’d recommend you watch the uncensored video.

The album sounds like a continuation of all the previous albums, up until, I Gotchoo… a Rap song… that barely makes sense… with a heavy metal breakdown… AWESOME!!

So basically, its 45 more minutes of pop/punk fun from a great band. Very enjoyable.

7.5/10

Highlights: A Really Cool Dance Song, No Hablo Inglese, I Gotchoo
