Record Release Party!

We’ll play many songs from the new release along with deep cuts, early tracks, all the hits, and maybe a surprise or two. Bring your dancing shoes as this is a stand-up venue.

Get tickets here!

Record Release Surprise

We have been so excited for this day to come. It’s taken a year to get TWICE TOLD TALES in the can and we can’t wait for you to hear it. We played a special release show at Record Theater in Buffalo, NY to commemorate the release. We had a lot of friends stop by to enjoy the short concert. We signed many autographs and had great time. Go get TWICE TOLD TALES now!

Early reviews of Twice Told Tales. What’s your review?

“Full of atmosphere, atmosphere and reported accessible sound on “Twice Told Tales” traditionals of the British Isles, the album will stand the test of time – not only because of the 10,000 MANIACS.” – Music-Scan, Germany

Delightful album…fun, bouncy…” – Exclusive Magazine

“Their new release,Twice Told Tales, is a collection of British Isles folk songs, but with a definite 10,000 Maniacs spin to them. sweet and pretty…catchy and fun tunes” – Pop Culture Beast

“While many of the songs on this new album are over a hundred years old, the 10,000 Maniacs easily turn them into modern folk/pop gems with a natural sound” – JPs Music Blog

“10.000 Maniacs are back on the right track! What 10,000 Maniacs does with these traditional songs is breathtaking: some songs are upbeat songs, others are more emotional heartbreaking versions.” – Keys & Chords, Belgium

“This album, if given the right exposure, may prove to be a meth amphetamine folk album, bringing many into its spell and addiction, I know I’m hooked. With no UK tour dates listed on their site, this will continue to be a fix until I can see them perform it live. “Twice Told Tales” is an album to buy and breathe in deep.” – Fatea, UK
