notes::Viva Voce to re-issue two out of print titles as 2CD set with bonus material

Anita Robinson and Kevin Robinson have been making music as Viva Voce for nearly a decade. Their critically acclaimed second and third albums Lovers, Lead The Way! and The Heat Can Melt Your Brain will now finally be reissued along with bonus tracks on the band’s own Amore!Phonics label on Nov. 13. Originally released in 2003 and 2004 respectively, both of these sought-after albums have long since been out of print. Now, at last, the two albums are being released together with bonus material such as live performances, remixes, previously unreleased tracks, and original demos. This is the release old fans and new converts have been waiting for.

The Shins were such big fans they asked Anita to sing on their latest record Wincing The Night Away. The tracks Anita sang on became hits and she was asked to perform with them on Saturday Night Live, David Letterman & Conan O’Brian shows. International tours followed and lots of new listeners were converted into diehard fans. Throughout October and November of 2007 Viva Voce will be touring the east coast with Jimmy Eat World supporting this double album reissue, after which the band plans on recording the follow up to Get Yr Blood Sucked Out due out sometime in 2008.
