Armor For Sleep Sells Out (Kidding)

Posted by - 06:27 PM on 10/23/07
Ben from Armor for Sleep posted a bulletin regarding their upcoming video for "Williamsburg". Read it below. A preview of the video can be seen in the replies.
Bulletin Hey slugs... so we got some pretty crazy news a couple days ago that we are very excited about and want to let you in on as well as give you the first sneak peek at it. As you may or may not know, we shot a video for "Williamsburg" about a month ago in LA. It was an amazing time and we had so much fun doing the whole thing. It came out better than we could have ever imagined, to say the least. Seriously, this thing rules. We were trying to think of the best place to premiere the video for you guys when MTV came a'knockin. As it turns out, the peeps over in MTV land got a hold of the video and thought it was awesome too and decided they wanted to give it a premiere on MTV and an all day premiere on MTV2 and MTVU on the 29th. ALSO, it will be premiered on TRL that day. Nuts. I never thought we would be on TRL, or that we were the type of band to BE on TRL, so we are all kind of wowed by it. I donít think of us as a boy band...or one that should be on the same countdown shared with such brilliant artists as *NSYNC and B. Spears, but its still going to be weird (and kind of awesome), to see our clever little faces up there! I know you guys have been there since the beginning for us, and if we combine forces, we can keep this video up there. And I think that would be awesome. On a lot of levels. Also, I just want to say thanks for making your lovely myspace pictures the picture of our record. It makes me really happy. If that counts for anything, then amen to that.
For a special sneak peek at the new video, go here!!
We have two special pre-orders for the new album now as well. Just head on over to the Sire Records store by clicking here. You can pre-order the album with an autographed, hand numbered lithograph with or without an exclusive Armor tote bag.

i think it's kinda funny that they are going to be on TRL...awesome band though...stoked for the new album

What To Do When You Are Dead was my favorite album for a long time when it first came out....(yea i guess i went through a bit of a depression phase or something), but anyway...this album needs to live up to very very high expectations and i think it will

the album's out on the 30th, it already leaked... MTV wouldn't sign on to just a trailer video, etc... i'm pretty sure everything's happening now.
