Cincinnati, OH – November 10, 2009 – Koala Fires will be wasting no time in the new year by releasing their long-awaiting debut full-length album on Saturday, January 2, 2010 at the Historic Southgate House in Newport, Kentucky. The ten track album, titled The Beeping in Our Hearts, will be available on CD at the show for $10. Local favorites The Harlequins and The Guitars will be opening the show along with Indianapolis-based Amo Joy.
Frontman Matt Mooney explains the choice of release date by saying, “We thought it would be an appropriate gesture to release the album right at the beginning of a new year and make a statement that something new and exciting is happening.”
In 2008 Koala Fires released a 3-song EP and were Cincinnati Entertainment Award nominees for “New Artist of the Year”. Since then, the group has focused its efforts on improving their live show and completing their full-length. “2009 has really been a building year for us,” explains guitarist Kendall Bruns “but I think it’s paid off and we’re incredibly proud of the album. I can’t wait to share it.”
To promote the release, Koala Fires are giving away a free downloadable mp3 of album track “All the World’s Been Staged” via their website, koalafires.com, beginning November 10, 2009.
On November 25 the band will offer a digital version of the album for $6.99 and begin taking pre-orders of the CD, which will include an immediate digital download. Pre-ordered CDs are scheduled to ship the week before Christmas.
