    Mew will re-release A Triumph for Man

    This is what Gaffa says:

    "Et af de mest populære danske bands for tiden, Mew, har solgt 50.000 eksemplarer af deres seneste skive ”Mew And The Glasshanded Kites”. Sidste år ryddede de stort set bordet for, hvad der var af hædersbevisninger, og man må derfor betegne bandet som ridende på en bølge af succes.

    Det startede dog mere ydmygt. Deres debut-plade fra 1997, ”A Triumph For Man”, udkom kun i 1000 eksemplarer, og det har betydet, at interessen fra nyere fans lige så stille er blevet overvældende. På Ebay kan den sjældne plade for eksempel erhverves for små 4000 kroner.

    Derfor har Mew og deres pladeselskab besluttet at genudgive debuten med dertilhørende bonus cd-indeholdende uudgivet materiale såsom demoer og akustiske versioner. Kort sagt alt, hvad hjertet kan begære for en virkelig Mew-fan. Udgivelsen er på gaden 18. september."

    And this is a some kind of translation (not done by me):

    "One of the most popular danish bands at the moment, Mew, who have sold 50.000 copies of their latest record, "And The Glass Handed Kites". Last year, they pretty much picked up every award there was to pick up, and therefore one must describe the band as riding on a wave of succes.

    It started rather humbly though. Their debut album from 1997, A Triumph For Man, was only printed in 1000 copies, meaning that the interest from newer fans has grown to the extremes. On eBay, this rare album can be bought for 4000 danish kroner. (400 Pounds Sterling, aprox).

    Therefore, Mew and their recordcompany have decided to re-release the debut, with an accompanying bonus-cd, containing unreleased material, like demos and acoustic versions. In short, everything a true Mew fan could desire."

    So I guess they will be re-releasing A Triumph for Man, if we can trust Gaffa. :D

  • YES!

    I can't wait! And I think we can trust Gaffa. I never thought they would release it again. This is good, good news :D

  • Sounds exciting. I'd love to have that.

  • As long as they rerelease it in the states as well. Took them long enough to release ATGHK here...

    well you could always order it from abroad..

  • I already got "A Triumph For Man"! Bought in many years ago, when it had a normal price. Actually I didn't knew until recently that this was such a rare release.

  • That CD is so mine.

    I just ordered ATFM and Frengers today, cost me over $50 but meh, sooo worth it.
    I'm all the way in Aussie land, so I'm going to be waiting awhile :(

    There is more to knowing that just being correct.
  • Does anyone know where I can get it?

  • I am very excited about the re-release.

    last time they came through NYC I got tickets like right away. I was so happy and excited!! I got like the 3rd ticket sold. And then like a month later when the show was..... it was so sad......

    I got completely sick. Like the death or the flu. I forced myself to get dressed and go then about 1/2 to the subway I passed out. Luckly for me, my boyfriend was there to catch me and carry my ass home. And that is the sad story about how I missed Mew...... that was last year......

    And I am still not over it:(

    I hope they come around again. Soon. So I'm hoping that the re-release will make it sooner than later......maybe:)
