A Fine Frenzy celebrates million-follower Twitter milestone with free download

Second Virgin Records album, Bomb In A Birdcage, to be released September 2009

July 23, 2009, New York, NY – Joining a select club of music notables, Virgin Records’ A FINE FRENZY marks a milestone in its close online relationship to its fans, as the band surpasses 1 million-plus Twitter followers. To celebrate the moment and to thank and acknowledge all of A FINE FRENZY’s fans, the band is tweeting a free MP3, an acoustic version of the lead-off single, Blow Away that was recorded during a recent visit to Cincinnati radio station Q102. The album version was released digitally on July 14 and has been added to dozens of Hot AC and AAA radio station playlists already, while the band’s second album BOMB IN A BIRDCAGE is scheduled for digital and physical release on September 8, 2009.

AFF frontwoman, singer-songwriter Alison Sudol (@AFineFrenzy), tweeting long before Twitter became a social magnet and a cultural marker, had already been among the top 10 most-followed musicians on the service for months, rubbing shoulders with top-line music celebrities Mariah Carey and Britney Spears; the inveterate blogger and online wit John Mayer; hip-hoppers P. Diddy, 50 Cent, and Soulja Boy; actor/singer Ashley Tisdale; Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz and Coldplay.

The breezy, propulsive album version of Blow Away shares the tuneful charm and whimsical language of AFF’s debut, while BOMB IN A BIRDCAGE as a whole adds new colors and textures reflecting what Sudol describes as a previously-unnoticed “wild side…I’m a quiet person with a loud streak, and this record is a testament to that.”

Seattle-born and Los Angeles-raised Sudol released the first A FINE FRENZY album, One Cell In the Sea, in 2007, reaching Number One on Billboard’s “Heatseeker” charts. The band was chosen as a VH-1 “You Oughta Know” artist, and received rave notices in Entertainment Weekly, Paste and People, among others. Touring alongside the likes of Rufus Wainwright and Brandi Carlile, Sudol also appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The CBS Early Show and The Late Show with David Letterman. She made her acting debut on the crime drama series CSI: NY and has also shot fashion spreads.
