Dr. Manhattan has returned! We spent some time talking with the band about what their plans are for the future -- hit the replies to see our conversation and watch a video announcement that only these guys could make. Welcome back boys.
Unlike the oft-disappointing New York Knicks, the Nicks of Princess Dinosaur are here to deliver. One part Nic Newsham (Gatsbys American Dream), one part Nick Vombrack (Dr. Manhattan), the duo's debut EP, A Goldfish and his Friends, is now streaming on the band's AP.net Profile. Though there's an off-kilter aesthetic to the artwork and the instrumentation on these six tracks, you can count on Newsham's always mellifluous vocal delivery to swiftly bury these songs in your skull.
Starting today, we will be giving away a pair of tickets to every date of the Dr. Manhattan tour with Foxy Shazam and The A.K.A.s.
