News__ Dum Dum Girls: Only in Dreams

August 08, 2011 | By

We're dreaming about release of the Dum Dum Girls' new album

"Write about what you know. That’s what they say. But that’s a lot easier said than done when what you know is very, very difficult to bear," the artist statement for the Dum Dum Girls' new album begins. Lead singer Dee Dee's mother was diagnosed with a terminal illness as she was in the process of writing the album. In light of such a momentous loss, the album's personal and emotional coloring is dark and vibrant. There is something beautiful about supporting an artist we love in a moment of pain by absorbing her music and encouraging our readers to do so too.

Coming Down is the first single off the album and we were psyched on the track from the second it was out. (It's still available for download!) Pre-orders for the album start today on Sub Pop and the first 700 to order on Only In Dreams vinyl will get the Loser Edition of the LP on light pink vinyl.  Everyone who orders will also get a link to stream the record.

Dum Dum Girls' friend and filmmaker Sam Macon made a trailer video for Dum Dum Girls' Only in Dreams. Watch the girls kick up dirt in L.A. in the video below.
