Hi everyone and hope you're having a great week so far! Some cool stuff to share today so check this out!


My buddy @Cyberdevil (who was featured on "Head Above Water" from Better Than The Book's Two Years On album) was a guest on the "A Couple Of Crickets" podcast here on NG and made a lovely shout-out to our collaborations and Better Than The Book too (at 56:55)!




The episode also earned a Front Page Award too! Neat! Give it a listen to hear more about CD, his Newgrounds history and more via the link above and check out CD's Inktober awesomeness, a new rap acapella for each day of October as well as his usual Inktober drawings! You can find all those and more on his profile below: Thanks CD!

And another little bit of news, Better Than The Books new album is still very much getting lots of love around the world including on Tonic Ska Radio in London. Thanks Tonic Ska for playing the music and feel free to read more via their Facebook post below:

Hi everyone and hope you're having a great start to October so far! It's the first Wednesday of the month which means the rewards post for the $1 patrons is here, and this time we're continuing the Jabun back catalog of music with my first ever remix as Jabun: "Nine Fifteen Ft. Jess" by Diamond Eyes!


This track was made for the very first remix competition I took part in back in December 2012 only a few weeks after "Bergamot" was released and a few weeks before Better Than The Book's debut EP One Small Step was released too! It's one I hold close to heart and the first of my more experimental and cinematic / electronic fusion tracks, with eastern elements mixed among western orchestra and synth driven electronics! Become a $1+ patron to download the Mp3 and artwork now, or become a $5+ patron for all that as well as the full quality WAV file and early access to all future rewards, and I hope you enjoy this less chill side of Jabun! Listen here on Newgrounds:



For the $10+ patrons, I'll be diving deep again into the creation of another track from Better Than The Book's recent "Hopes and Dreams" album, the video game nostalgia trip that is "GG"! Become a $10+ patron to access that article and many more now, and remember that you'll gain access to all historic rewards and posts for your Patreon tier too when you become a supporter! With the new REWARD ARCHIVE tag it's never been easier to catch up with all those posts and music downloads you've missed too! I hope you enjoy them and if you've yet to hear it here's GG:



Another Jabun track will be coming for the next set of rewards as we move into 2013's Jabun discography!


In other news, my internet connection after moving house is finally back and it's been an exciting time in terms of news for Better Than The Book's Hopes and Dreams album while I've been away, so here's a quick round up of what new and awesome things have been happening!


First of all, "Meteor Shower" was featured on the "Distilled Endless Summer" show on Downtown Radio-Tucson! Thanks so much for playing the music, and that makes 6/10 tracks from the album now to have been featured on the radio around the world so far! Amazing stuff and feel free to read more via DJ Testerman's post below!


https://www.facebook.com/DJTesterman/videos/332541597528856/


Next up, a while back I was interviewed by Love It To Death about the Hopes and Dreams album and BTTB in general, and the interview was finally published a few weeks back! Check it out below for discussions about the origins of BTTB and the project name, the themes and influences in the new album, and the future of BTTB! Enjoy the read and thanks to LITD for having me:​


https://loveittodeathreviews.wordpress.com/2019/08/16/__trashed-4/


Finally, "Artificial Ignorance" which seems to be a crowd favorite from the album was featured once again on The Ska Show with Beefy on Southern FM! Always a pleasure to be on your show Beefy and thanks as always for sharing the music! You can listen to the show via Beefy's post below and BTTB plays at -33:13 from the end followed straight on by a kind shout-out by Beefy! Thanks so much!


https://www.facebook.com/TheSkaShowwithBeefy/posts/2511672885587768?__tn__=-R


And check out the full playlist for the show below:

That about wraps things up for the news this time and if you've yet to check out Better Than The Book's Hopes and Dreams, you can find it in all the usual places as well as on Bandcamp! Enjoy the tunes, take care until the next post and thanks as always for supporting my music!

Hi everyone and hope you're having a great week so far! Today is the final day of the formal promotional campaign for the Hopes and Dreams album and to celebrate, I've uploaded a stream of the full album to Newgrounds which you can check out for the full 39+ minutes of uninterrupted heartfelt ska punk / pop punk that is Better Than The Book's Hopes and Dreams! I hope you enjoy it!

 

Purchase the “Hopes and Dreams” album on Bandcamp:

A whole lot more radio news to share this week too as “Artificial Ignorance” was featured on The Undiscovered Sound on idobi Radio! Thanks so much to Jeff for featuring the music and you can read more about The Undiscovered Sound on their site here:

https://idobi.com/show/the-undiscovered-sound/

On top of that, "Artificial Ignorance" was also featured on Channel One Radio’s The Warp Factor! Thanks so much Kirk and Craig for playing the track, and no worries at all on getting the name wrong (you're not the first)! Ironic considering the title too! You can listen to the full radio show again via the link below for many great tunes and a history of punk segment too! “Artificial Ignorance” plays in the last half hour of the show:

https://www.mixcloud.com/thewarpfactor/the-warp-factor-ultimate-punk-with-craig-cabell-6th-sept-19/

Lastly in the radio related news for this week, Button Down Radio and Tonic Ska Radio both seem to be expressing their love for Better Than The Book recently too! Thanks so much for playing the tunes and you can listen in and read more via the Facebook posts below:

https://www.facebook.com/buttondownradio5446/posts/2401291610142662

With that final full-album stream released, it feels crazy to me that after almost 5 months of pre-hype and post-promo, the formal Hopes and Dreams album promotional campaign has finally come to a close, and what a heck of an adventure it has been so far! Let's take a look back at everything the album has achieved so far since the first single dropped back in May:

 

Before the album was even launched, Hopes and Dreams, was featured in a number web magazines with one of the singles “(The Travelling To See Eva Song)” earning Better Than The Book its Australian FM radio premier on The Ska Show with Beefy, the #2 ska music podcast in the world! Fast forward to today, and less than 2 months after the album’s release, 5 out 10 of the tracks have been featured on radio shows and podcasts worldwide including:

 

Idobi Radio’s Fresh Picks, Spinning Thoughts, and The Undiscovered Sound shows (California)

Bobs Ska Radio (Seattle)

Channel One Radio’s The Warp Factor (UK)

Button Down Radio (UK)

Tonic Ska Radio (UK)

The Masita Ska Show with Beefy on Southern FM (Melbourne)

 

Bear in mind that many of these shows have featured and played multiple tracks from the album in multiple episodes too! On top of all the radio features, Better Than The Book has been featured and/or interviewed in a number of web magazines and music blogs too including:

 

Broken Arrow Magazine

Pete's Rock News And Views

Happy Metal Geek

Breathing The Core

The Punk Site

World Beyond Blog

 

A special mention of course goes out to good old Newgrounds too where the 2nd single “Artificial Ignorance” (which seems to be a crowd favourite across the board) earned a front page feature award too! A HUGE thanks to everyone who’s shared and played the music and helped spread the word with a round of applause for the album’s PR extraordinaire Meg who especially made many of the magazine/blog features and interviews possible! Thanks Meg! Check out all these features in full, reading interviews as well as re-listening to many of the radio show/podcast features on Better Than The Book’s press page below! I hope you enjoy them:

 

https://betterthanthebookuk.weebly.com/press.html

 

And if you’ve yet to hear the Hopes and Dreams album and see what all the fuss is about, the full album is now streaming on YouTube, SoundCloud and Newgrounds as well as available in all the usual places (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc...) and of course on the Better Than The Book Bandcamp page! Enjoy:

 

https://betterthanthebook.bandcamp.com/album/hopes-and-dreams

 

(and of course you can listen via the video too!)

 

Onto other news if you've not yet heard, now that the Hopes and Dreams album is out, it felt like a great time to make some updates to my Patreon page, and so I’ve revised the descriptions, goals and tier rewards (now only 3 tiers to choose from) as well as added REWARD ARCHIVE posts for the convenience of new patrons so you can grab all the past rewards for your tier (including the full Better Than The Book Discography and more) in one place when you sign up! Read all about the new updates via the Patreon post below:

 

https://www.patreon.com/posts/28931894

 

With such a big BTTB related project just finished, the newer rewards which started up again this month will focus mainly around my other musical personality Jabun (electronic / cinematic) for a little while, but don’t worry, Better Than The Book is not done yet which leads me to the final piece of news for today:

 

Last month for the first time since its conception in 2012, 4 guys (including myself) got together to jam the tunes live as a Better Than The Book band! It was just a casual living room jam, but the results were promising enough that over the past month we’ve been hard at work arranging and learning our parts for our first full band practice at the start of October! I can’t say for sure what’ll happen next if that all goes well but there is a definite possibility that after 7 years of being solely a writing/recording project, Better Than The Book may be hitting the stage! Many logistics to figure out before then first, but it’s certainly an exciting time for the project (as if the last year wasn’t exciting enough)! Crazy!

 

A friendly reminder that Better Than The Book is significantly fuelled by my Patreon page, and while recording everything myself is relatively cheap and just takes a huge time investment, taking things to the stage is a bit more of a financial challenge. If you’d like to contribute (for as little as $1 a month) head over to my Patreon homepage to read more about the various rewards you can receive, the goals for the project and pick up the full Better Than The Book discography (including some Patreon exclusives and bonuses) if you decide to sign up!

 

https://www.patreon.com/NickStanding

 

If you’re unable to contribute at the moment, then no worries at all! Sharing the Bandcamp or Patreon link on social media is also a huge way to help spread the word and only takes a moment! Thanks for supporting Better Than The Book in any way you’re able to!

 

And that wraps up this post! I hope you’ve enjoyed all the amazing news this time and throughout the campaign, and I have a feeling that there’ll be more press features to come and big news to share soon (we’ll have to wait and see). If you’re itching to hear more then head over to the Better Than The Book Facebook or Twitter (@BTTB_UK) for the most immediate updates, or consider supporting my music on Patreon for a front row view of all the action! Until the next post, a huge thank you for supporting Better Than The Book and my various music projects and I hope you have a fantastic week whatever you’re up to! Take care!

Hi everyone and hope you're having another great week so far! It's Wednesday again which means another track from Better Than The Book's new Hopes and Dreams album is now up on Newgrounds and this time it's track 09 "You've Got A Lot To Say". This track is one of the more serious ones I've written (with less ska vibes and a more alternative rock feel), all about loss and being there for loved ones in hard times. I feel like "I hope you enjoy it" isn't the right thing to say, but I hope you get something out of it at least and take the message to heart. Check it out via the player below:



Purchase the “Hopes and Dreams” album on Bandcamp:

https://betterthanthebook.bandcamp.com/


Or grab the full album and complete Better Than The Book discography now when you become a supporter on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/NickStanding


It's onto the final track of the album next week, and what a journey it's been over these past few months. Also, with the BTTB discography all on Patreon now, the $5+ / $10+ rewards have started up again today to start sharing the back catalog of my other main music project: Jabun (electronic / cinematic), starting with my debut track from back in 2012 "Bergamot"! Check it out and read more about it in the post below and I hope you enjoy this other side of my musical personality! Don't worry if it's not your jam though as more exciting things from Better Than The Book are already in the works!


https://www.patreon.com/posts/29106006

https://www.patreon.com/NickStanding


You can also listen to Bergamot here on Newgrounds:



For the $10+ patrons too, I'll also be continuing with the monthly behind the scenes articles, this time taking a deep dive into the creation of track 05 from Better Than The Book's Hopes and Dreams album, "Brighton". I hope you enjoy it, and again feel free to check out the finished track here on Newgrounds:



Finally this week, not a whole lot more news to report, but it sounds like Better Than The Book is getting some love over on Button Down Radio, which is always nice to hear! Check out the post below for some more ska radio fun:


https://www.facebook.com/buttondownradio5446/photos/a.1712323415706155/2389026961369127/


And that's it for this post! Until the final track and the next post (where the next $1+ Patreon rewards will be released too), have a great rest of the week and thanks as always for supporting Better Than The Book, Jabun and my various projects! Take care!

It's Wednesday again which means another track from Better Than The Book's new Hopes and Dreams album is now up on Newgrounds and this time I'm sharing track 08 "GG" all about fun times playing video games!

That's it for this post! Next week we'll be onto track 05 of the album and the end of the first side, and I'm sure there'll be many more pieces of news to share too! Until the next one, have a great rest of the week and thanks as always for supporting Better Than The Book and my projects! Take care!
