September 1st, SeepeopleS will unveil their 4th studio album, Apocalypse Cow Vol. 2. In keeping with their philosophy and the times, SeepeopleS is offering their own financial bailout, by giving the entire album away for FREE! The album will be available for download at the band's site, www.seepeoples.com midnight September 1, 2009. The band is releasing a 15 track "hard cover" version on January 1st, 2010 in honor of the band's 10 year anniversary. Starting this June and throughout the summer, the new songs will be previewed at myspace.com/seepeoples. These songs represent a return to the "electronic" roots of SeepeoleS, and a return to the sound that made their second album, The Corn Syrup Conspiracy, an underground classic.
