got this the email other day: Our fearless leader!


Subject: Eureka Machines news: Do Or Die album out soon, gigs, etc....

Greetings to you,

There now follows a shedload of NEWS regarding the awsome EUREKA MACHINES –
Leeds’ newest and most skill pop’n’roll combo featuring Chris Catalyst,
Steven Morricone, Wayne Insane and the mysterious Davros. Read on for
details of the debut album release, gigs a plenty (including some hot
festival slots) and all other kinds of malarkey....

1. DEBUT ALBUM RELEASE

We are pleased to announce that the debut album 'Do Or Die' will be
available on digital download and in the shops (dist. by Shellshock) from
01/09/08 on the mighty Wrath Records (cat no. WRATHCD48), but you lucky
mailing listees can order it NOW through the medium of PayPal and get your
grubby mits on an advance copy. Thanks immensely to the more eagle-eyed of
you who have already spotted this purchase on the Myspace & Websites – keep
those orders flooding in! You can get your advance copy through the band
website:

www.eurekamachines.com

or the My Space thing:

www.myspace.com/eurekamachines

Hooray. It's eleven and a half tracks of pop rockery which could just change
your life for the better. I'd love to put some review quotes for the album
in here, but we’ve not long sent them all off to the media types so the
jury’s still out. There are some preview tracks on our My Space - go have a
listen.

Album tracklist:

1.       Scream Eureka
2.       Being Good Is Okay, But Being Better’s Better
3.       The Story Of My Life
4.       Red Wine Smile
5.       Everyone Loves You
6.       Going Down
7.       She Sings To Me
8.       The One Who Wouldn’t Change You
9.       Do Or Die
10.   Yeah, I Feel Lucky
11.   The Light At The End Of The Tunnel


---------------

2. GIGGING FENZY

Eureka Machines have also just been confirmed to play the Reading and Leeds
festivals on the BBC Introducing Stage. Leeds Friday and Reading Sunday.
Times TBC. But this will be a great honour and we can't blimmin' well wait.


#### Extra specially HOT NEWS: If you order a copy of Do Or Die from us any
time up to the end of play SATURDAY 16th AUGUST, you will be automatically
entered into a draw to win a pair of day tickets for the site of your choice
– if you could let us know when you place your order, that would be great.
Those of you who have already bought a copy via Paypal will already have
been entered for this. We’ll be in touch on the Sunday to the winner.####

To support the release of this mammoth album, Here is a suitably large and
shaggy tour:

AUGUST
Saturday 16th - Unity Day, Hyde Park, LEEDS - on stage 7.30pm
Tuesday 19th - The Asylum, BIRMINGHAM (with Sorry and the Sinatras)
Wednesday 20th - Bar Academy, Islington, LONDON (with Sorry and the Sinatras)
Friday 22nd – LEEDS FESTIVAL, BBC Introducing stage
Sunday 24th – READING FESTIVAL, BBC Introducing stage


SEPTEMBER
Mon 1st – The Bengal Brasserie, LEEDS – ALBUM LAUNCH PARTY! (see Myspace for details)
Friday 5th - The Chapel @ The Parish, HUDDERSFIELD (with Agent Orange)
Saturday 6th - Gasworks, BRADFORD
Monday 8th - The Lamp, HULL
Friday 12th - The Wheatsheaf, OXFORD
Saturday 13th – The Brief, CROYDON
Sunday 14th - The Charlotte, LEICESTER
Friday 19th – Vintage Rock Bar, DONCASTER
Saturday 20th – Shepherd’s Bush Empire, LONDON (with The Wildhearts) – SOLD OUT

OCTOBER
Thursday 2nd – The Park, PETERBOROUGH (with Laika Dog)
Friday 3rd – The Asylum, BIRMINGHAM (with Laika Dog)
Tuesday 7th – Corporation, SHEFFIELD (with Laika Dog)
Thursday 9th – Rock Café, STOURBRIDGE (with Laika Dog)

If you live in any of these cities and can help us with flyering or posters,
we'd really appreciate it - get in touch! We do this all on our own, with no
advertising budget, and no help from major labels etc. It costs a lot of
money to poster towns and you never have any real guarantee that the posters
have actually gone up, but if you can be arsed to spend quarter of an hour
next time you're in town putting a couple of posters up in your local record
shop and similar, we'd really appreciate it.

Same goes for Leeds and Reading - if you're going, you're taking 200 of our
flyers, like it or not! Ha ha. The BBC are making a really big thing of the
Introducing stage this year, so if you are listening to the radio and they
mention it, e-mail or text in and tell them that we're playing and we're
great! Request our tunes too. Most of the BBC Radio producers should have a
promo of our album by now.

---------------

3. EUREKA MACHINES ‘CRIB’ EXPOSED

In a very special programme commissioned by shady internet music channel ASH
TV which is by sheer coincidence a bit like the ‘Cribs’ show on some music
television network or other, EUREKA MACHINES very own Chris Catalyst has
been invited to show every single one of you round his own luxury pad.

Get a feel for the rock & roll goings on, meet the band on Chris’ doorstep,
see all the desperate hangers-on, see what the band do in their spare time,
marvel at Chris’ awesome ‘ride’, have strange mixed-up feelings about what
goes on in the bathroom, acknowledge the true genius of Icky from the Bengal
Brasserie…… all here:

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=mYHwLlnsJ-o

ENJOY! – thanks very very much to the guys at Ash TV for making this. Watch
out for their promo vid to ‘Everyone Loves You’ – being put together at the
moment. More news on that to follow…..

---------------  

OK, for more information, as always, go to our website -
www.eurekamachines.com - where you can see news, gig dates, reviews, pictures,
download tracks and see funny videos.

Thanks x 100000 to Damian for keeping on top of the website - he is one very
cool (but very busy) chap.

If there's anything else you can do, please get in touch - I can't stress
enough how much we appreciate it. Likewise for any other bands you like -
it's incredibly difficult, being in a band, it's a lot of hard work, so
spreading the word is always appreciated. People like you lot make it more
fun.

All the best, hope you like the album and hope to see youse at a gig.

Chris, Davros, Steve and Wayne.

Good!

Now back to EM - the whole Cribs -thing takes place far too close for comfort to Village Place, from what I can make out. Best watch out for sharp suited geezers next time I'm passing on Burley Road.

more news from the EMx frontline:

Eureka Machines wrote:
Hello northerners,

There now follows an announcement about advance tickets for our big show at the Brudenell Social in Leeds later this month:

Eureka Machines will be rocking you to within an inch of your life at The Brudenell Social Club (aka The Best Pub In The World) on Saturday 27th September.

It will be the best night of your life (probably).

The full line-up is:

EUREKA MACHINES - that's us, on the Leeds leg of our album launch tour, fresh from Leeds and Reading - http://www.myspace.com/eurekamachines

THE HYDROPATHS - punk rock pop - drinking tunes from ex-Dead Pets and Dregs - http://www.myspace.com/thehydropaths

SHUSH - Blondie goes rock - power pop brilliance from our London ex-AntiProduct mates - http://www.myspace.com/shushsound

PUSHBIKE ARMY - in your face indie pop - sadly the last ever gig for Leeds favourites - http://www.myspace.com/pushbikearmy

FRAN RODGERS - folk pop chanteuse - fresh from wowing Reading and Leeds - http://www.myspace.com/francesrodgers

And it's only £4.

£4! Unreal.

You can buy advance tickets here: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/36310 (with a 40p booking fee).

We've deliberately kept it cheap because everyone's skint these days, and we're not into ripping you off.

So, to sum up:

Eureka Machines, Hydropaths, Shush, Pushbike Army, Fran Rodgers
Saturday September 27th,
Doors 7pm - Fran on at 7.30pm.
Brudenell Social Club,
Queen's Road,
Hyde Park,
Leeds.
£4.

Hope to see some of you there.

EMx

PS. You can buy our album in all the pop shops now, and it's still available on our wonderful website:

Our fearless leader!

Weebles/Norm, you decided if your going yet?
