News about the NEW Presidents of the United States of America album!!
"Freaked Out And Small" is the title of the new album from The Presidents of the United States of America. After an absence of over three years they are back! Keri Abrams of has just issued a statement informing the PUSA-faithful of the details on this new release.

She reports that the band has won back the right to use their name after long and dragged-out legal scraps with Sony Records (their former label). Up until recently the group had been using the name "The Quitters" in reference to their retirement three years ago.

The new full length album will be released on CD etc in the autumn of 2000. However, a "fan edition" release will be available from much earlier. Here are the songs:

Blank Baby, Death Star, Headin' Out, I'm Mad, Jazz Guy, Jupiter, Meanwhile Back In The City,  Nuthin' But Luv, Superstar, Tiger Bomb, Tiny Explosions, plus one more.
