Head on over the the DRESDEN DOLLS ARTISTS PAGE and you will be able to check out a brand new track from the Boston duo. Titled NIGHT RECONNAISSANCE, it is taken from the upcoming release NO, VIRGINIA which will hit stores here in the UK on MAY 19TH.
THE DRESDEN DOLLS will also make available a book to accompany the release. Detailing the contents in a recent MySpace blog, Amanda Palmer comments:
The Virginia Companion is a 350-page BEAST is about as big as a f*cking phone book and includes zillions of never-seen photos that Brian and I lovingly chose from the archives of the past few years. I also write (as I did in the last book) about the process of recording the record, the stories behind the songs and the story behind the artwork including a TON of art submissions for the record that weren’t used in the final packaging. There is an entire gallery devoted to the beautiful album-inspired artwork of Barnaby Whitfield (the pastel-artist and painter who created the masterpiece for the cover of the Paradise DVD and our Good Day 7″), tons of alternate album covers we were toying with, Haikus, a little section written by Brian, live photos, scribblings and bibblings and other flotsam and jetsam to make sure you never go hungry for dresden dolls trivia again.
The book also includes sheet music for every song from Yes, Virginia and No, Virgina (a total of 23 songs) for piano and voice. Each song also includes guitar tabs for you rock and roll types.
Details of how to order the book are not available at this time, but you can pre order the album NO, VIRGINIA HERE.
