Can You Tell Me What a Wang Chung is?
“I was Abducted By The 80’s. I never saw them coming. I was on my way home one night at about three in the morning, Minding my own business when BAM! Without warning I was being catapulted from scene to scene, To the music from The A-Team dressed for all the world like a new romantic feeling a bit sad and starting to look it, With some pointy shiny shoes, And a Mel Gibson mullet. I Was Abducted By The 80’s.”
Wang Chung have been abducted, as you can probably tell. To join them on this first step of their adventure, the band have set up a portal for you to follow their experience in this newfound musical universe.
Already legendary for their name alone, the band are intending to embrace this new cosmic trip with a series of free downloads, starting with the soundtrack to Rob Gee’s poem ‘Abducted By The 80’s’, which is available for free download from www.wangchung.com.
Working in tandem with this new material, Wang Chung will also be releasing new versions of their greatest hits, including ‘Dance Hall Days’, ‘Everybody Have Fun Tonight’ and ‘Let’s Go!’. These will work in tandem with the upcoming releases as one, grand souvenir package.
Their cosmic adventure began with their featured role in the Regeneration Tour with the band ABC in 2009. Since then, Nick Feldman and Jack Hues have been working and sculpting their new material, culminating in this new series of songs.
The band will also be touring the US during June and July to support this combination of old and new where their beloved fans will have more than just music as a memento from their sonic quest.
