Dear Members of The Most Serene Republic,  
I love this band. I am a huge fan of the music, the lyrics, and you guys -the much talented members of this great outfit. In fact, The Most Serene Republic is one of my favorite bands and Phages might just be in my top ten favorite records ever.

So it probably won't come as a surprise to know that learning about ...And the Ever Expanding Universe, a new album, to be released on June 14, made my day happier than it already was. It's also good to know, just so that we don't have to wait so long for new songs, in the meantime, an EP titled Digital Population will be available on April 28. The songs "Humble Peasants," "Compliance," "The Men Who Live Upstairs," "Present of Future End," and "Sherry and Her Butterfly Net" have been turned into "16-bit dance tunes." That sounds very lovely to me.

However, the new songs excite me more, especially since the track "Heavens To Purgatory" has surfaced the internet. It seems as if you guys have started to explore a bit more. It's a very fresh song, I'll tell you that. But since I want to share the tracklist, I'll go right ahead:

01 Bubble Reputation

02 Heavens to Purgatory

03 Vessels of a Donor Look

04 Phi

05 The Old Forever New Things

06 All of One is the Other

07 Patternicity

08 Four Humours

09 Catharsis Boo

10 Don't Hold Back, Feel a Little Longer

11 No One Likes a Nihilist

Ah, eleven new songs just waiting to be heard by folks like me. What I like even more is knowing that The Most Serene Republic have a few tour dates soon, especially in Brooklyn.

6/24 - Boston at Great Scott

6/25 - NYC at Cake Shop

6/26 - Philadelphia at North Star

6/27 - Brooklyn at Union Hall

Thank you so much,
Your biggest fan,

P.S. People who want to listen to something new, something delightful, should listen to this song.
