New track "Get A Haircut" from Better Than The Book's Hopes and Dreams album is up on NG + more radio/press news!

Posted by Jabun - August 14th, 2019

Hi everyone and hope you're having another great week so far! It's Wednesday 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 06 "Get A Haircut" all about un-fun times and people being pricks! Check out the player below for a rage filled pop punk anthem about bullying and my first week in a town which shall remain nameless! At least I got a song out of it :D Enjoy!


Purchase the “Hopes and Dreams” album on Bandcamp​:

It's also been another exciting week for radio features and more! The Ska Show with Beefy on Southern FM​ is back again for another re-run and this time track 05 "Brighton" from the Hopes and Dreams album played right after my favourite ska track of all time "The Impression That I Get" by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones​! Such an honour and thanks so much to Beefy for having it up on the show (playing alongside, Reel Big Fish, The Specials and Madness too)! Listen in via the Facebook link below and "Brighton" plays at -18:16 from the end followed straight on by a shout out! Amazing stuff :)




That makes 5/10 tracks to have been featured on the radio worldwide so far too! Crazy feeling!


But the radio news doesn't stop there! All 10 tracks from the Hopes and Dreams album are now on Seattle based internet radio station Bob's Ska Radio​'s rotation! You can even request any of the songs to be played with a dedication if you wish too: just search "Better" or "Book" and choose which track you'd like played! Check it out and listen in below! Thanks Bob's Ska Radio!




Next, some more press news to share today as the Hopes and Dreams album has been featured in Broken Arrow Magazine​! Check it out and read more in the link above, and thanks so much to Broken Arrow Magazine for featuring the new music!




Finally this week, yesterday was a historic day for BTTB as for the first time since its conception in 2012, 4 guys (including myself) got together to jam the tunes live! Super fun and exciting times, and we'll see where it all goes from here! Who knows!


That’s it for the news this week (so far)! Next week we'll be onto track 08 of the album (another pop punk one), but I'm sure there'll be many more pieces of news to share before then! 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!
