North America Promotion, Press, and Reviews Thread

#1 Post by Cdrodkey »

Most of you know there was a CNN article on Yes a few days ago, which is huge promotion for the Boys.

Now, a new article: http://www.cnn.com/2009/SHOWBIZ/Music/0 ... index.html
And this just isn't on CNN.COM, it's right now ON THE FRONT PAGE, under "latest."

Is the new management that they've hired responsible for the US as well? This is already more promotion than I have seen in years...

Now this on Pitchfork:

They also ran a brief article on Yes having Jonny Marr a while ago, and list Yes in their Spring record preview.

And its the third most popular entry at the moment. :shock: Just this awareness that the band is still around is great promotion.

Edit: Now its #1, neat.

Edit again: I'm just talking to my friend, who knows I love Pet Shop Boys, and she heard it mentioned on the radio. What a random story to get PSB the biggest press they've had in years. Them deciding to post a stupid request on their site has gotten more publicity than the new album lol.

I posted this in the specific "PETA STORY" thread, but PSB and the Peta story were also featured on the hugely popular "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" show tonight on MSNBC!! I couldn't believe me eyes and ears!! :clap:

It was also ran this morning on HEADLINES NEWS with Robin Reed on the 5am show BECAUSE I SAW IT!!! Nearly spilt my coffee. Awesome story -- One for the Boys. I couldnt think of a better organization for them to support ... they are the Pet Shop Boys after all.

It's too bad the album isn't out now, or something physical to buy in a store in the US with all of this press.

Perhaps they have something up their sleeves coming up...

Who knows? The staggered rollout of CD / Singles in UK / Europe vs USA is the biggest disaster I've ever seen. This doesn't happen with other international stars regardless of their home country. At most perhaps 2 day delay between Europe / UK release dates. No promotion in the US either? Perhaps your right? Maybe they have something up their sleeves. I'm also beginning to form an opinion that the super early "leaks" of content from CD on to youtube etc, could ultimately be hurting CD sales.

They need to visit one of the American late nite chat shows to promote the album at least.

Nice review! :D

It's great that you end with: "Like Pet Shop Boys, the track makes everything old new again."
