promised a song, delivered a video clip:: SHOCKING how the evidence lands.

Might as well keep up the trend here, a new bulletin was posted from Shiny Toy Guns.

Instead of the Season of Love song, we get this tine clip of a video part 2. It looks good but it’s no new song.

By the way, what is up with the due date of 14 months?

on this holiday …

it became, a lie, on you. from Shiny Toy Guns on Vimeo.

clocks are 11:04:08. west coast you are trying on clothes. doing homework.

staring at your children. staring in your mirror.

+ east coast you are reeling from a monday that is not good. for anyone.

even if you are in the bug collecting business today in new york was tough.

nevermind that. things happen and they bring change. in order for life to live there must be that which is uncomfortable.

_ _ _ _ _

q and a.

question one >

how many of you can properly pronounce norfolk?

not enough. learn this town. its a magical place. the south is beautiful, its music, and its people.

question two >

Have you ever been to the state of Maine? the second you think the small little corner of america is full of beards and fishing boats is when you trip over your own quick judgement. Their hardcore scene could fight buffalo’s for many rounds. Orange County would have to call the 805 area code to bail them out. Maine radio and blogs are small, on point and underground. Their scene is tight, together and they love music.
respect:)

see you on tour.

shinys.

It appears that they finally have a decent mailing list going as I finally got an email through some third party (not Satellites) and guess what it links to? The old video that was released a week ago.

EDIT: Another bulletin just popped up; a call to action.

Everything desert.

The open skies of arizona in the fall are the most beautiful displays of

100,000 volts of electricity in the world.

The music of this massive state is nothing less shocking than this.

Those who call themselves true zoni’s .. ..

we have an opening in the phoenix area.

Who should we ask? Who is amazing.

Who deserves the gig?

Write us now. If its your band, than so be it.

Not in a band? Tell us who.

We told you we would put up a new song on 12 sept but we finished

something we thought you should hear first.

In a few days you will hear our interpretation of what it sounds like to freeze

an entire ocean …

And on 11:04:08

You will have the sound of a season of poison.

Because today, on the 16th of september, on broadway between 21st and

22nd street in new york city, new york, at exactly 5:25 pm eastern standard

time,

Our 2nd child was born.

season of poison is complete.

Over 16 months in the making, our greatest effort is finished.

See you soon on the road:)

As well as a bit of an explanation, not much, but it’s a start.

Shiny Toy Guns official release: Ricochet! to sattelites, confirm new singer, unofficial release dates.

UPDATE: Sisely’s own response is here.

So below is the latest myspace bulletin from Shiny Toy Guns (yeah, I know lately LECOMPLEX has been almost exclusive to Shiny Toy Guns… interesting, we’ll see where this takes us).

Anyhow essentially they have confirmed Sisley Treasure as their new singer and have marked the release of the new single.

Release Dates:

Season of Poison: November 4, 2008

Ricochet! single: September 2, 2008

SHE’S IN YOUR HEAD. ready ? NOTICE.

lets think back … or we will and you can just listen and remember.

in march of 2004 Chad and I wrote some music .. .. we decided to put some
of the tunes up on this social networking site called “myspace”,
actually on a personal profile because at the time there were no music
profiles and Tom had not even started messing with it yet.

Back then you could write Tom and he was just hanging out at his house –
and he would write you back and come see your band play down the street.

and we weren’t sure what would happen.

At the time we had just began to settle in with who our band was to be
for a while, our new drummer and new singer had been with us just for a
few months.

and we weren’t sure what would happen.

let me tell you what happened.

You,
the people behind you,
the people in the front of you …
to your left, and to your right : :

they embraced what we were trying to project.

_ _

they projected what we were trying to embrace.

and a new sound … a new sight … a new way of approach began.

an approach centered around destroying the space that separates artist
from listener.

an artist should be no further away from some one listening than a mother
to her child.

together we can destroy both.

so

TOGETHER .. we did some great things.

TOGETHER we made milestones that bands 200 times our size could not equal.

TOGETHER we traveled the world ..

and,
we listened to you,
when you asked us to come see you in alaska.

we drove there.

we listened to you …
when your friend was really sick. as in, cancer sick.

we went to her bedside.

we played in the parking lot …
when the venue refused to let all ages in to a 21+ venue.

when an accident happened ..
we went there on purpose.

and we listened to you ..
when the baby was born.
:)

and again,
when he left you.

Today is Friday, August 15th, 2008.

It is not March 14th, 2004.

TODAY you will feel just a tiny piece of a new fire that has consumed this
band.

TODAY … she RICOCHETS !

and you will notice.

and today …

(cold shatters the sky)

and this is the first day of the rest of our lives.

__ _______________ __

The single has landed! Shiny Toy Guns:: Ricochet

UPDATE: confirmed release info is here (date, singer etc.).

Here it is: streaming from FMQB, and here is the download link.

You can also download it right from here (right click, choose save as): Ricochet – Shiny Toy Guns

What I honestly think of this song is that it’s nice to have a throwback to Nothing Compares 2 U. The lyrics seemingly mirroring Le Disko at some points is cool and the concept of guns and ricochets supplementing the idea of a shiny toy gun is pretty sweet. However, the lyrics come off as insincere and at parts like Bullet For My Valentine could’ve written them in 10 seconds. I’m getting no sense of depth or meaning as of now. Just words. It seems like they’re trying to force out another Le Disko. As promised it is darker. I’m feeling a little bit of Junkie XL and Lauren Rocket in the beginning vocals. Now what I need to love this song is the rest of the album so I can see the connections and how the themes tie in to eachother. Right now, this stand alone song isn’t bad, but I wouldn’t say it’s amazing. It is nice to hear something new though. I see this the same way as hearing Le Disko for the first time: I didn’t like it at first because it seemed like nothing special, but I kept coming back and before I knew it I was googling them and what do you know, 2 concerts later I’m very much impressed with Le Disko. I really hope that the video for Ricochet! (if they do a video that is, since this is the first single) is just as edgy as Le Disko and You Are The One and a little less Rainy Monday. That being said I liked how I could see the connection between Rainy Monday and You Are The One (as well as the rest of We Are Pilots) later.

What does everyone think?

They sampled their version of Nothing Compares 2 U.

It very much reminds me of Junkie XL at the intro.

I like it personally, it’s a totally different feel from We Are Pilots which is interesting. I don’t love it yet, it’s not the Shiny Toy Guns I love, but I think if the rest of the album expands on these ideas I’m going to.

LYRICS:

RICOCHET!

verse 1

welcome back to
where I’m gonna to have you
shell shock – fall back
every one I see through.
watch your head spin
like a mesocyclone
bouncing off the walls
now there’s nowhere to run

like a bullet : meant to be shot
you’re the target
dead on the spot
when I focus : I never miss
it starts with a kiss…..

Chorus !

she ricochets !
and you don’t notice.
she’s in your head !
and you just don’t notice.

verse 2

let the sweat fall
find me in the back stall
let it snow down
now we’re gonna deck halls
I hit the bullseye
making all the boys cry
I hit the main line
breaking through the night sky

like a bullet : meant to be shot
you’re the target
dead on the spot
when I focus : I never miss
it starts with a kiss…..

Also, with a little digging I found the following image that indicates we’ll be able to download soon. The song is already available for download (see beginning of post).

New Singer

Aside from this I can also confirm that Sisely Treasure is the new Shiny Toy Guns singer albeit unofficially.

Finally, I’ve heard a little rumour that the remix album we’ve been waiting on since last year is to be released October, around the release of Season of Poison.
