Good Shoes invite fans to win a place on their new single sleeve

Good Shoes

Story by Jack Foley

FANS of Good Shoes – the band who deliver raw and heartfelt pop
records commenting on youth and the world at large – now have the chance to appear on the artwork for the forthcoming single The Photos On My Wall, due for release on January 1, 2007.

The philosophy is simple – take a photograph of yourself throwing some serious and not-so-serious shapes to the sounds of the ‘Shoes and email/text them to the email address/number below.

All entries will then be compiled onto the minisite www.thephotosonmywall.com with the winners also becoming a part of Good Shoes history on the sleeve of the new single.

The Photos On My Wall is a new track from Good Shoes’ recent album sessions in Sweden with the production team Tore Johansson and Per Sunding.

Taking them into the realms of classic British bands like The Cure, their sound has been finely honed after a year of touring and the release of two well-received singles, All In My Head and We Are Not The Same.

Pushing to one side the jerky, intense strut of those for a moment and discovering the benefit of allowing their songs more room to shine has brought a new dimension to the band.

The track will be previewed on a highly limited four track 7” album sampler in November before the full single release on New Year’s Day.

Good Shoes will tour the UK in November with dates as follows:

21 – Oxford, Zodiac
22 – Cambridge, Soul Tree
23 – Manchester, Night and Day
24 – Liverpool, Korova
26 – Birmingham, Bar Academy
27 – Glasgow, King Tuts
28 – Leeds, Brunel Social Club
29 – London, Kings College
30 – Bristol, Academy II

Photos for the competition should be texted to 07834 741000 along with the key word Good or emailed to photos@thephotosonmywall.com

Opening date for entries is October 20 and the closing date is November 6. Texts are charged at standard network rates. All texters will receive a free ringtone specially produced by the band.
