The New Studio Album 9 Lies OUT NOW!!!

The new Nine Lies album and long awaited follow up to their critically acclaimed debut Behind it All, '9 Lies' is available worldwide from today. Buy it online at iTunes, Amazon, HMV, Google Play and usual outlets on CD (USA only) and digital download worldwide. Stevie Mann said "It’s been a long time coming. We have had stacks of EPs and singles as you know, but this is our first new album since Behind It All and we are super excited. It’s an eclectic collection of tunes with themes I couldn’t even have dreamt of writing about or seeing if it hadn’t been for the past few years touring. From the get go with 'Take Me Away' with its Epic, moody intro followed by deep dark guitars and mystical dark male vocal, you know this is going to be a serious album. It doesn't just deal in stories of the heart or negativity, far from it, with tracks such as 'We R1' which has a positive "WE CAN DO IT!" vibe. It’s essentially a Driving Guitar Indie rock song, with pounding drums, big riffs and a great storyline taking you on a road trip from A to B with a let's get together and do this theme. Hot smokin' guitars, fierce vocals -- Save the World is the goal here. Nascar, racing, hot cars, endurance tests, action movies. Then you are taken to the underworld of twisted double agents with the awesome "A Kill for the king" It is an Epic, James Bond 007 esc dramatic rock, almost orchestral feeling song about deceit, pressure, eerie and tense life undercover in a twisted under world. This album has it all from the anger of breakup in 'Damn' to the lust of the rebound in 'Nothing left for Me'. The Band 'Nine Lies' are a rock outfit based in Belfast, Northern Ireland and this certainly shines through in their work. Streams available on Rhapsody. • The band have played, among others: FMI Music Festival, Brazil 2011 Vena Music Festival - Lodz Poland University Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, Sankt Augustin, Germany RWTH Aachen, Germany Lark in the Park Music Festival, Lurgan N.Ireland And are due to play an 11 night tour of the Netherlands

Help Us Make A Video, Get Exclusive Goodies, And Support The Blaze Appeal!

To All Our Fans, Family And Friends, Thanks Very Much For Your Support Of Our Music Over The Years, We Really Appreciate Everything You Have Done For Us, And Everything You Have Been Through With Us.

We really value your support, and through internet wizardry and the music-loving gang at Pledge Music, we are now proud to offer you the opportunity to become more involved in our journey as we prepare to release our EP and Music Video under our own Evil Twins Label.

It’s a simple process to sign up, and everyone who “Pledges” here will get the EP and Video first, but you also have the opportunity to Pledge for exclusive items and experiences. This is where the concept gets really interesting, and we have had a great time working with the Pledge Music team in putting this section together!

Please visit our Pledge page at http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/kill-for-the-king, look on the right-hand side of the page and pick out anything you like. Hopefully you’ll find something, and please act now as we must reach our target amount within the project’s limited lifetime.

If we don’t reach the target, then no-one gets charged.

Each Pledge will help us cover costs associated with releasing and promoting the Video for the EP, which will not only be viewable on-line, but will be added to Video Play-lists for Television.

Once we reach 100% it will be all systems go!

The other great part of all this is that 20% of all profits collected via our Pledge campaign will go to charity. We have decided to nominate the Blaze Appeal as our charity, and as you know, we have been working with them for some time to help raise money for the Belfast Children’s Hospital – a cause we feel very deeply about.

All Pledgers will immediately be able to hear our brand new song that will go along with the video, and we will also be giving away other exclusive free goodies, including behind-the-scenes videos, interviews, remixes and unreleased demos.

This will continue up until the end of the campaign, and we will be rewarding as much as possible!

Ye Feckin ha, woop de doo and all that !!

Its been a mad year for Nine Lies! It seen us tour Germany for the 1st time, and work with legendary producer Stuart Epps, (Hearing his stories about everyone from Robbie Williams to Oasis). But more than that we have made the massive leap from Indie with the announcement of our first big budget UK single release since signing with Maddie Records in June. WooHOO! Nostalgia Time!! Since the release in 2006 of the 'Behind It All' album, its been a rollercoaster ride, with Blind being snapped up by Warner TV, and the title track finding home as the theme tune to 'Our Prisoner' in the USA. In 07 the Song Slippin Away was downloaded more than 143,000 times and chosen by ASCAP for excellence in song writing at Music Expo in L.A. And last year was our biggest to date, seeing us travel to Poland to play the Vena Music Festival in Łódź to thousands of screaming fans alongside the Sugababes and Fun Lov'in Criminals,AnD tHeRe's MoRe... Being invited to play FMI in Brazil, licensing 'We R1' to Techno Sweat, and the release of the first video game ever to use our music Trucker 2 is imminent! And to top it all off we have just returned from a fantastic European tour from St Augustine to Aachen. Oh Yeah!! Thanks for your continued support. We'll work day and daily to keep you proud, and make 2010 our biggest ever!! Join the street team for free at www.9Lies.net

What a fantastic year it's been for 9Lies! It was the year which saw the 'Behind It All' album being released to critical acclaim, with massive radio airplay around the globe, and all without a record company being involved! It was also the year which saw the song 'Blind' being snapped up by Warner Brothers, and 'Behind it All' the title track from the album finding a new home as theme tune to reality tv show 'Our Prisoner' in the USA. We've been beamed up and down from satellites around the world more times than we care to remember. In the last 6 months alone 9Lies have travelled to Poland to play the Vena Music Festival to thousands of screaming fans, licensed a song (We R1) to Techno Sweat for use on their exercise Music CD's, 18000 people joined us on our 2 International Myspace sites and in the last 3 months we've gathered over 900 groupies since joining the Bebo social networking site, with fans placing our songs on over 1500 of their play lists! The Song 'Slippin Away' has not only been downloaded online during the last year more than 29,000 times, but has more recently been chosen by ASCAP for excellence in song writing at the ASCAP Music Expo 07 in L.A. Download sales on digital sites such as iTunes and Rhapsody have remained strong, as have Material Worldwide CD sales from our Online Music Store, and all of this is down to you! Thank you!!
