Pine - Longplayer - July 4th

Time for an update on the Pine album Longplayer and a bit of general news. The album will be released on July the 4th 2002 in New Zealand.

Longplayer is released by Arch Hill Recordings and will be distributed by FMR in New Zealand. The album itself has thirteen tracks, including the b-net favorites "Make Way for the King" and the latest single "Beaten Again". Longplayer was put together with the help of studio whizz Nick Abbott (Pluto, Goldenhorse, Meterman). Prototype experiments from the Arch Hill art and design department (managed by Aaron Pine) may take CD packaging to new levels. Look out…

Also look out also for the wet 'n' wild video for Beaten Again, which has been on Space, M2 and Squeeze over the weekend

Upcoming Pine shows include:
Wellington - 21st June at Bodega with Minuit
Auckland - 29 June at Kings Arms with Fang and Minuit
Christchurch - 12 July with Minuit

Arch Hill have also recently formed distribution relationships with Didgeridoo Records in Australia (Ed Kuepper, the Triffids and other Aussie Indie/Pop/Rock/Folk) and Hot Records in the UK/Europe (currently the third largest independent distributor in the UK). Pine, who are already getting some good radio play in Australia, will be the first Arch Hill release through these outlets in July/August this year. Other Arch Hill releases will follow and Arch Hill delegates are being dispatched across the ditch next week to finalise offshore strategy.
