Bishop Allen stopped by the Fuel TV studios a little while back and performed two songs for The Daily Habit. The band plays a favorite from their last record, The Broken String, as well as a new one entitled “Shanghaied” which will be appearing on their new album coming in 2009.
Check the videos out HERE.
Check your local listings because tonight Bishop Allen appear on Fuel TV’s action sports show, “The Daily Habit.” Featured alongside pro skateboarder Tony Magnusson and The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne, Bishop Allen perform two songs, one old and one new. Bishop Allen play the unreleased track “Shanghaied,” along with “Middle Management,” which is taken from their 2007 release The Broken String. Fuel TV will archive the performance online, for those of you who can’t tune in for the episode.
When Dead Oceans released The Broken String we certainly did not expect there to be a Bishop Allen video featuring Michael Cera (Juno, Arrested Development, Superbad). As it turns out, the new video for “Middle Management” (from The Broken String and now the soundtrack to Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) is culled from various scenes of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which means that Bishop Allen and Michael Cera appear in the same video! We are thrilled with the end result, and can’t wait to see Bishop Allen perform on the big screen. For those keeping score, Nick’s (Michael Cera) band is opening for Bishop Allen in the film, and they make a cameo. And, yes, that is “Middle Management” you have heard in the movie’s trailer.
Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist comes out Oct. 3rd and the soundtrack (featuring Vampire Weekend, Band of Horses, Modest Mouse, Devendra Banhart, Bishop Allen and more) is in stores now.
Bishop Allen are currently holed up in their make-shift Brooklyn recording studio, writing and recording the follow-up to their 2007 album, The Broken String. Tentatively planned for release in early 2009, the band plans to road test many of the new songs on a US tour in November 2008.
Touring and recording are not the only exciting things happening in the world of Bishop Allen. The band makes a cameo appearance in the major motion picture release Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which stars Michael Cera (Arrested Development, Superbad, Juno) and Kat Dennings (40 Year-old Virgin). The band appears in the movie during a scene where Nick and Norah first meet. The trailer for this movie was just released, and features Bishop Allen’s song “Middle Management” as well as a brief glimpse of the band onstage during the movie. Songs by Modest Mouse, Vampire Weekend, We Are Scientists, Band of Horses, Devendra Banhart and more are featured alongside Bishop Allen in the film.
