5th Anniversary Thank You!

Hey, y'all.
Five years ago today, an album was released that would change the face of comedy rock music forever. Our debut album, Coup D'é Ta-Ta'swas met with levels of critical and commercial success that were hard to fathom at the time. Now, 13 million album sales later, AEW are living on Easy Street USA. Looking back on our illustrious career, I think we can all agree it's been one hell of a journey.

First there was the album release party, where I was nearly murdered by a crazed animal rights activist. The loss of touring income while I lay in a coma for 8 weeks nearly put an end to Attractive Eighties Women. Then, when our hit single "Murder Kroger" led to a lawsuit from the Kroger corporation just six months later, I thought we'd truly hit rock bottom. There's nothing like losing a prolonged court battle to the tune of $25,000,000 USD to make you truly question your DIY punk rock ethos.

However, from those dark days of despair, we emerged triumphant thanks to your unceasing support. When "Gonna Throw a Party (When You Die)" was featured during the closing credits of Pixar's Up, it seemed we'd finally turned a corner. Since then, it's been a roller coaster ride of drinking, drugs and Hollywood excess, culminating in our recent record-setting night at the 2012 People's Choice awards. And throughout all of this, there's always been one constant in our lives...

You. The fans.

We want to thank you for all the support you've given us over the years. Whether it was just showing up for a show, buying a t-shirt or album, sharing a link with your friends, or waiting in line for over 36 hours so you could be in the first row of our sold-out homecoming concert at Phillips Arena last February, you've always been there for us. Without our fans, Attractive Eighties Women would merely be one of the most talented and amazing bands in history. Thanks to you we're one of the most talented and amazing and successful bands in history! We couldn't have done it without you.

As a small gesture of our gratitude, today we are releasing a full length video of our entire first album, which was recorded at Fat Back Sound Studios in Sandy Springs. For the first time ever, you can watch the entire recording session FREE in beautiful standard def! Were you there on that day, so many years ago? Try and spot yourself in the crowd and know that you were a part of rock n' roll history. You helped make my private jet possible.

We're also slashing prices on both of our albums online. You can now download Coup D'é Ta-Ta's or The Ancient Cry of the Tyrannosaur for only $5 each. That's $2 off the original price! I know, I know. We really are too generous. But goddammit, you deserve it!

Thanks again. Y'all are the best.
