Default The new Cake record....

"Showroom Of Compassion," you guys looking forward to it?

I got to go see them when they came to Charlotte on October 30th, and it was, easily, the best show I've ever been to

I can't wait for the new album to come out.

Wow I had no idea there was something to look forward to. Sweet. That's why I'm glad I don't bug artists to hurry up and release music. They think about it and think about it and clock hours on it to make what they want to make. I'm hoping for another solid addition to the CAKE set...

Sick of You will do, for a radio tune. Nice at 1:35, that's classic CAKE. Bit unlikable vocals on the first half for me, but loved 1:55 - 2:35.
Very nice, welcome back CAKE. Some regional heroes right here.

I love 'em. Easily my favorite band They've also spent all the time since B-Sides and Rarities converting their studio to 100% solar power

I know a lot of people who don't like 'em because of the raw sound. No editing, no vocal pitching, nothing like that. I happen to love it. Also, John and Xan are two of my heroes

I'm seeing them live in January.
On the 17th I believe.

And I'm waiting for the new album as well.

I guess I can say this to the both of ya. It's a religious experience

I loved it. It was awesome. John got REALLY into it with the crowd, and it was just so cool:

The beginning of 'Sick of You' annoyed the hell out of me when I heard it in the car a few days ago, but I stuck through the song because I knew that it had to be new Cake. No one else has that deadpan way of singing.

I'm pretty damn excited. I love them.

Yeah, they did the same when they played here It was annoying, but it was fun. I remember a friend of mine, an older guy, saw them way back when, and he said that the crowd wasn't getting into the music to the point that John put his guitar down and walked off the stage

I don't love Cake, but I have to admit, when I heard the single "Sick of You" on an independent radio station near me, it was actually the first time a song on the radio got me excited for an upcoming album. I really want this album, despite the fact that I was immensely irritated by Fashion Nugget. Like I said, this single got me really pumped!
