:: :: ::: ::::::::::::

lets talk about the WEATHER.
because at 11:04:08 PM things are quieter

than they were a few hours ago.
New Jersey will have dried up bit, and

all of the northeastern seaboard is settling into bed, safe from a serious

outclash of tornadic cells spawned from the dying hurricane hanna.

Flooding is probably the most serious thing at this point.
All is clear

everywhere else for right now, with nothing serious en route for days.

RICOCHET ! is now out.
our first single and first release from the new

album is now avail everywhere on line … Itunes, and whatnot.
simply run

a search .

shinys

Also, congratulations on making it this far. I hear there is a new group photo with our new band member.

The links are fixed and the image can be seen at the top of this post.

Official Ricochet! release:: Shiny Toy Guns

tis the season to be poisoned… fa la la la la…aiff

So it appears you miss a lot when you disappear for a day. Here’s how it goes: tomorrow the Shinys will be e-mailing their army a high quality MP3 (which is good, since they took down our WAV file download). Everything else said is a little non-stellar but we’ll see what else they do.

and its a shocking holiday .

Thursday. Satellites. RICOCHET! Is in your mail box. And not some terd mp3. How about a 24 bit .aiff. If you don’t know what that means I’m saying higher than cd quality.

And for everyone : we have a date with you. And don’t be late and wear those one shoes that are hot.

Its called eleven, four oh-eight.

Because friday at 11:04:08pm ricochet will appear virally completely downloadable and completely FREE.

And yes you can pass it around, we don’t mind. Its your tune.

And something a bit more important about that number : :

Its the birthday of our lives, the official and un-changing date of our album …..

Ladies and men: cats and dogs, spiders and snakes .

On november 4th, 2008, together we will enter a season of poison.

The countdown begins NOW.

Love you all : from quiet oklahoma .

Shinys

And there’s also this Ricochet! fan video that might last you until tomorrow…

Maybe 2 things isn’t that much that you miss in a day.

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.

__ _______________ __

ladies and gentleman, boys and girls.

4 years later :)

we proudly present to you,

a new sound.

a new song.

a new shinys.

RICOCHET! is our first single …

SEASON OF POISON is our new album .

SISELY TREASURE is the new voice alongside the sound we call Chad

and

lets do this .

TIME TO REGULATE like warren g.

__ ____________ __

move and slide :

this is the new sound of shiny toy guns for today.

tomorrow will bring things to levels that you will just need to feel;

without discussion.

SATELLITES your free copy comes early.

OTHERS READING THIS
your copy of “ricochet!” comes next week. on us.

we are coming to play live in your town and hang out.

SHINYS:

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).

According to FMQB radio station, the new single (available for airplay September 1-2 I believe) is called Ricochet.

New Singer

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

Remix Album

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.
