Super Furry Animals (July 2010 Newsletter)Posted on July 19, 2010
Congratulations - by the time many of you read this, we will have 80,000 fans! Excellent work! Non-profit music of peace and love, championing the people of the world, all of the creatures and animals, and the environment... is not such an unpopular idea after all, it seems! Now let's keep up the "drive to 95" and then go for 100k!
And speaking of animals and the environment... this month's brand new single - the first studio single from THE ROAD which is set for release on 8-9-10 (UK date format), aka September 8th, 2010, has one of the most powerful and relavant messages of any Fox Elipsus song so far.
THE FIRST STUDIO RELEASE SINGLE FROM THE ROAD (DOUBLE A-SIDE)
Nowhere Left To Run & Remember Me
The powerful, hard-hitting environmental/economic protest song
- - - - - - - - - NOWHERE LEFT TO RUN - - - - - - - - -
The dreamy, emotional ode to fading memories of perfect love
- - - - - - - - - - - - - REMEMBER ME - - - - - - - - - - - -
Please rate them, comment on them, and share them with all your friends to help spread these messages of peace and love. NLTR in particular, should be seen by everyone, everywhere, before the natural world becomes one giant commercial parking lot.

CAN YOUR CITY OR STATE BECOME FOX'S #1 FAN BASE IN THE WORLD?
We now have a Local Fan Group on Facebook for every city & state in the USA and Canada. Join your local fan group so that you can receive updates on when Fox will be in the area, and where he will be playing, and for all the latest localized Fox news. The full list of fan groups (alphabetically by state) is available here: http://bit.ly/FoxGroupList

(don't forget to invite all of your local friends)
There will be three factors that determine which 150 cities in North America Fox will perform in next year. Last year it was 300, this year it was 250, so many cities will be cut from the 2011 tour. Only cities with (a) large crowds, (b) good CD sales at shows or online, and (c) a very large fan group - will be guaranteed to have a show in 2011. To help your city compete to become Fox's #1 fan base, and make sure Fox comes to your city in 2011, go to your local group and invite all of your local friends to join... that way the numbers will multiply very quickly indeed! There will be monthly updates of which local fan groups are leading the way.
