Sneak Preview: Corporate America
Tuesday, July 30, 2002

I didn't believe it when I first heard about this, but it seems to be true; the title track to Corporate America. Melocicrock.com has a listing for a band called "Downer's Revenge" and a download of one of "their" songs. Well, it's Boston.

First of all, I don't know how melodicrock.com got a copy of this before anybody else or why they are covering it up as another person's work. But I checked it out anyway...

A few things about the song. First, it seems that Fran is the lead singer on this track, with Kimberley and Tom on backup (can't hear Brad there so I assume he isn't on this song). Signature Boston drum triggers and organ. First for a Boston song is the "reporter montage" (clips of reporters in background).

Anyway, it's currently available for download from melodicrock.com

Lyrics are now available for this song.

Boston Album/Tour Info
Wednesday, May 01, 2002

Official word passed on from boston.org webmaster Troy Bartlett:

"BOSTON has plans to tour this summer behind a new album that is about to come out on Artemis Records. The group, or more accurately BOSTON mastermind Tom Scholz, has spent more than two years in a basement studio working on the record. 'We believe they will be touring this summer and fall, but there's no start date yet,' APA Senior VP Troy Blakely told POLLSTAR.

The band last toured in 1997. The three-year-old Artemis Records label, co-founded by former Warner Bros. Records chief Danny Goldberg, reported plans to invest $1 million in marketing and promotion, and to initially ship at least 500,000 copies of the record."

-Troy

ps. This was sent to us from the Boston Office today. Not only was there news on the album, but promotion and touring info as well! Please remember that this is Boston, and dates are never firm until they are in the past...
