Press release :
NEWS: UGLY DUCKLING announce new LP 'Audacity'
Ugly Duckling have announced that they are shortly to release their new album Audacity. This latest LP has been two years in the making and the band said yesterday in a myspace bulletin that they would soon be adding new album tracks to their myspace site's music player and that the Won't Let It Die video is imminent. They referred to themselves in the same bulletin as the "whitest/nerdiest/" and most old school group since the Native Tongues era, humbly omitting to acknowledge their general dope-ness. Last time the Monkey spoke to DJ Einstein on the Bang For The Buck tour he mumbled something about, "We might do another one" when asked about future album plans. Fans will be relieved that there is no longer any question about this. Audacity will be Ugly Duckling's fourth full length studio LP - unless you count their debut EP - which you might well - seeing as it had 8 tracks on it. Keep checking back with the monkeyboxing for more!
P.S. Don't forget to check out Dizzy's side project Blown Celeb. P.P.S. Net rumours abound of a 25 November 2008 release date for the LP. Possibly only in Japan. Possibly not. Don't hold your breath!

Ugly Duckling has "Audacity". Since U.D.formed in 1993, Andy, Dizzy and Young Einstein have had the nerve to believe they should make it in the music business. Fiercely independent and musically idealistic, the trio from Long Beach, California has managed to successfully release four self-produced albums which have taken them to almost 30 countries over the past 10 years.
Despite the band's low media profile and often-changing label situations, they have built a unique and wide reputation for delivering soulful, humorous hip-hop and a white-hot live show. To look at them, one might not guess that this band has an accomplished resume of classic singles, consistent sales, critical acclaim, international t.v. and festival appearances and a busy travel schedule with the worn-out passport stamps to prove it but, somehow, they've made it happen.
