Since 1994, Seattle’s Presidents of the United States of America have spread their skewed and joyous brand of pop to audiences the world over. On the heels of their 20th anniversary and to celebrate the release of Kudos To You, their 7th full length studio album, they will be stopping by Liverpool’s recently renovated East Village Arts Club  on Monday 24th February as part of their European headline tour.

Kudos To You is available now through Burnside distribution and an on-going PledgeMusic Campaign . Every person to pledge will also receive a live album Thanks for the Feedback: PUSAFest ’11 Live.

PUSA has no idea where this album came from. Drummer Jason Finn opines, “we’re full-time part-timers now, and since 2009 or so have been enjoying a relaxed and limited touring schedule combined with liberal hammock time. Hammock time is the best!” When the trio booked two days with their longtime producer and FOH engineer Martin Feveyear last October, “We definitely considered ourselves post album in the sense that we weren’t interested in pushing something out there for ‘business-y’ reasons. We don’t have the time to do a whole release-promote-tour-the-planet routine. It’s our comfy little 20-ish dates a year schedule which keeps us loving what we do!

So into the studio they went…with no expectations, and no material other than Singer Chris Ballew’s notebook. Whoops! Things got out of hand, and a month laterKudos To You was tracked, necessitating changing their annual PUSAFEST shows in Portland and Seattle to record-release shows. Finn: “We’re lucky it’s the best time EVER for connecting directly to fans, and we have very, very cool fans all over. We’re using Pledgemusic to get them involved in the process, and I hope to get a copy into the hands or hard drives of all of them in the next couple months!”

Kudos To You is a happy mix of old, new, and brand spanking new, that should hit right at the soft tissue of PUSA fans old and new. “Ok, mostly old,” muses Finn, “but still it’s a fun listen and should eventually be purchased by everyone on the planet!

Following their tour in Europe, PUSA will return to the US for a handful of dates this summer. Details TBA.
