Last month, Anxieteam’s debut single on full-color picture disc became available for pre-order. It’s now back in general release, making today not only the launch of Anxieteam’s brand new website, but also the official launch of the must-have music of 2010. The single is a double A-side on a 7″ picture disc featuring the live favorites “Let’s Eat Soya” and “Lonely In The Digital World”. The band created the artwork themselves, Jim doing one side of the disc and Jon the other. There are only 500 copies of the disc. (I’ve already got mine. They shop fast from the UK!) You can buy it directly from Hello Thor or Burgerplex. Haven’t got a record player? Each ~$11 purchase is accompanied by a suite of mp3s.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, approximately 6.8 million American adults, or about 3.1 percent of people age 18 and over, have Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Well, now, thanks to a brand new website from Doodlesplatter’s very own design dream team, The Neon Hive, there will be a few less anxious people around town. The world’s most famous neurotic duo, Anxieteam, have a freshly centralized hub serving all the latest band-related news, music and videos. Consider it virtual Valium. If you fell out with society, join the Anxieteam here.
If Marie Antoinette told Anxieteam to “let them eat cake,” both band and audience would probably be well fed. Between the Burger Men cupcakes by Crumbs and Doilies and these by Nottingham’s Star Bakery for the picture disc release party, we’re not worried about anyone going hungry.
Without further ado, here are some visuals from this past weekend’s Anxieteam picture disc release gig at the Nottingham Contemporary. The detail-oriented amongst you may recognize Jon’s shirt as being the one he wore in New York at the Goodbye Blue Monday show. This begs two questions: 1) Should Jeremy get a new hobby? and 2) Why doth the T-shirt king double-up? All photos were pilfered from Hello Thor’s Flickr set. A special bonus is the appearance of Amir, head honcho at the JBVLA, as the red Soya dancer. Click through to see it all. More photo documentation of the recent UK gigs is on the way!
Perhaps you caught them on BBC-1 or maybe you were lucky enough to see one of their global engagements, but Hello Thor just released the first ever Anxieteam picture disc. Their debut single: Let’s Eat Soya / Lonely In The Digital World is available now HERE for pre-order on limited edition (500 only) numbered 7″ picture disc.

Let’s eat soya! Let’s eat soya! I’m not even a vegetarian, and I could eat some soya right now. Breaking down boundaries, that’s what they do.
If you missed it, we’ve got the mp3 edit, complete with fun “Angstyteam” pronunciation! Click HERE to HEAR it.
Anxieteam is playing two dates in the UK to celebrate the launch of their debut single, Let’s Eat Soya/ Lonely in the Digital World. The 7″ picture disc is produced by Hello Thor.

Doodlesplatter urges you to go and take pictures and make illicit recordings on your cell phones. Anxieteam bootlegs are gonna be bigger than the Grateful Dead! Posse power.
