Modern Day Fairy Tales
Modern Day Fairy Tales is Minneapolis-based Junebug's follow up to their 2008 debut album, Share, and is mostly made up of older material from Junebug's "way-back" catalog. The songs were written by younger men in simpler times and reflect a light-hearted, humorous and care-free period in the life of the group. The band decided it would be a shame if these old songs were lost to the ages, so they revived them, breathed new life into them and recorded them with the hope that their audience would get to know Junebug just a little bit better. Modern Day Fairy Tales was recorded in February 2010 at Fur Seal studio in Minneapolis with engineer and mixer Joe Johnson, who has worked with such artists as The Bad Plus's Dave King and premier drummers Peter Erskine and Michael Bland. The album will be released independently by Junebug on July 10, 2010.
