Cake-New CD-B-sides

Does anyone know when this is available at a bestbuy or some other store?
the Cake website says buy now next to the CD, but I cannot find a release date.

Cake is my favorite modern-era band. No, really. I think there should be more threads about the band, Cake.

Anyway, I pre-ordered it from their website. I believe if pre-ordering from their official website, you get the limited edition CD with a cover of War Pigs live. I don't remember what makes it limited for sure, since it seems long ago now. The thing is, I never got confirmation that the payment was received.

When does it come out again?

I got a paypal receipt immediately. I'm not sure your payment went through.

I really liked Cake until the most recent album, which really was not good. The guitarist had left and the new guy just isn't as original.

While there's no specific release date, the website does mention:

The excerpt above was posted on their website on April 30th. With over 2 weeks gone by, it should be in our hands in early June.

I can't wait.

(For the record, they have a lot of b-sides released on imports that are not on this compilation.)

Perhaps that's why it sounded too keyboardy. I still thought Pressure Chief had some gems -- Waiting, No Phone (which I have a ringtone of and program it for people who I usually don't want to talk to), Carbon Monoxide, and Tougher than It Is . She Hangs the Baskets has to be one of their most all-time boring songs, though.

Maybe I overlooked the paypal receipt. I guess I can always go to my paypal account and check to see if went through.

Oh, good...I did get a receipt from Paypal, on March 8th. The payment went to "Silent Tribunal LLC dba Upbeat Records".

Same as me.

I'm convinced that No Phone was written by the former guitarist. It sounds like nothing else on the album.

Well, now this is interesting. The album seems to be fully downloadable for free from the website Wish I had known that.

There also appears to be a live album coming out sometime in 2007 as well. I'd be curious to hear it as I've never had the opportunity to see one of their shows.

I've been to about 5-7 Cake shows. You should go if you get the chance -- they are a LOT of fun and you can see some of the rare instruments they use.

I would love to see Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps performed live. It's not my favorite Cake song, but I really dig it.

I was hoping this would get sent out earlier. I'm about to move, and they won't let me change my shipping address. Hopefully the address change will be effective before they send this out...

You can also have your local post office forward any mail that gets sent to your old address to the new one you'll be residing in.

I agree. I've been to 3 shows. (As a so-called "Cake fan", I should be ashamed of myself for only seeing them 3 times.)

On my myspace, I have a framed poster of the band, with all their signatures and some concert tickets lining the inner part of the frame. That was (is?) how much of a Cake nerd I am.

Hmm, their guitarist (Xan McCurdy) has been with the band since their 2001 album, Comfort Eagle, and he even recorded guitar on some songs on their 1998 album. Their old guitarist (Greg Brown) left the band way back in 1998. Their only recent line-up change is the drummer, as Todd Roper left after Comfort Eagle. There's no official drummer in the band right now, and they are playing with Paulo Baldi for live shows. (That's why there's so much drum machine on Pressure Cheif.)

Oh, and i forgot to mention, each copy of the limited-edition CD features a scratch-and-sniff album cover, and they are making five different color/scent combinations (red/fresh cut roses, yellow/banana, brown/leather, green/fresh cut grass, and purple/grape).

Yeah, I know. I've done that, and I'm hoping that I'll see it show up down here pretty quickly. I'm eager to here these songs, so I hope the PO comes through for me.

So does anyone know what song that is that plays on their website when you log in? Is that a Cake original? Might it be on the B sides?

I received the Cake newsletter in my inbox today. I presume this is on their official website too. Here's what it reads:

Hello,

We wanted to send our thanks to everyone who pre-ordered a CAKE "b-sides and rarities" CD. Please know that we are working around the clock to send them all out. Each order is hand packed with great care, and thousands of orders have already been filled! Rest assured that we are working diligently to fill each order in the order in which it was placed. Thank-you for your patience & understanding.

We also wanted to let you know about some upcoming CAKE shows:

August 10 - Fairbanks, Alaska / The Blue Loon

August 11 – Anchorage, Alaska / Moose’s Tooth Pub

August 17 – Del Mar, CA – Del Mar Concert Series @ Del Mar Race Track

September 13 – Aspen, CO / Belly Up

September 14 - Morrison, CO / Monolith Festival @ Red Rocks Amphitheater

September 15 – Sante FE, NM / Paolo Soleri Outdoor Amphitheater

We hope to see you soon,

CAKE
Hell yes. It couldn't come soon enough. Since I have most of the b-sides on this already, I'm really looking forward to the live album.

(Although, I do have some of their live stuff as b-sides from some of their imports. But a complete live album would rock.)

Got mine in the mail today. SO far some good stuff. I don't have any of their b sides, but honestly, the day it was announced I had been wondering what their b sides would sound like. My favorite so far is Conroy (a good instrumental that was featured on their website that would make an awesome ringtone).

I still haven't received mine yet. Has anyone else who have ordered it not receive theirs either? I purchased mine on March 8th. Not sure if that's considered ordering early or not.
