Earthtone9 News of New EP Release and UK Tour

Nottingham's earthtone9 were a band who showed a blatant and consistent disregard for anything approaching conformity
throughout their five year existence. Belching into life with the 5/5 Kerrang rated 'Lo-Def(inition) Discord' opus in 1998, they bulldozed, confounded and impressed until their messy implosion in 2002.

And after nearly a decade in the deep freeze, the quintet reappeared in 2010 to play to rapturous receptions at both the Sonisphere and Damnation Festivals. Ostensibly designed to celebrate a short but illustrious career this mini revival (along with a 'Best Of' given away at earthtone9 - Official Website - Tour 2011) looked like the last thrust for this pioneering band.

Well, it appears that a little life was found in the machine after all.

We'll let frontman Karl Middleton explain:

"Brothers and sisters, 2010 was something of a landmark year for earthtone9. After nearly a decade of putting the beast in a box we found that it still had a pulse. The shows at Sonisphere and Damnation were utterly mindblowing, (as was the response to the free 'Best Of' album). And the pulse got a little bit stronger.

During the rehearsals for last year's festivals we started toying with some new ideas. And here we are in the Spring of 2011 and from out of nowhere we have a raft of new material we REALLY want to share with you. Yep, new songs. And they CRUSH. We seriously have a fire burning.

We have at least an album's worth of new tunes, and YOU CAN HELP US!

We have decided to put out a new EP in time for the UK Tour in May. We are releasing it through PLEDGE MUSIC, and by you folks pledging to take the EP we can get the funds to hit the studio and make this a reality.

Head on over to PLEDGE MUSIC to read about the special fan only offers we have for ya. We are so excited about this ability to create and distribute music in such a pure manner. This is about US and YOU. If you want us to keep making music as much as we want to give you the music we make - we could built something beautiful here.

We know times are tough and money is tight, but if you can help us embrace this new music industry machinery we can take ET9 into this decade and BRING THE ROCK!

So please, please visit the PLEDGE website and pledge 8 to pre-order the new EP. And repost this on your Facebook, Twitter and other social networking accounts. We NEED YOUR HELP! There will be all kinds of exclusive updates on the earthtone9 PLEDGE page. Keep your eyes peeled!"

Earthtone9 Karl Middleton

When Earthtone9 frontman Karl Middleton went off and fronted a spew of creative bands, he also forgot to get his hair cut on occasion..

Here are two versions of The Blueprint with the track Minus 10
