CAKE: Past, Present and Future

CAKE Provides a Glimpse of the Past, Present and Future
B-Sides and Rarities Now Available
Prepare For December Unlimited Sunshine Tour

Sacramento quintet CAKE continues to move forward, celebrating the release of their new B-Sides and Rarities album (out October 2), via the band's own label Upbeat Records. After opting out of their contract with Columbia Records, the band decided to start things off with a treat for their listeners: a cohesive collection of re-mixed and re-mastered b-sides and rarities, plus an exclusive live bonus bootleg track of "War Pigs" with Steven Drozd of The Flaming Lips. The CD comes in a collectible "scratch and sniff" package, embodying four different CD cover color/scent configurations (including red/fresh cut roses, yellow/banana, brown/leather and purple/grape, along with an interior hidden scent!).

The band recently wrapped up three months of touring that stretched from London to Istanbul to Anchorage to headlining the Monolith Festival in Colorado. CAKE will have another rendezvous with the road in December, with the re-launch of the band's Unlimited Sunshine tour series, a traveling music festival formed by the band in 2002, which over the years has included The Flaming Lips, Modest Mouse, Tegan and Sara, De La Soul, Cheap Trick, Gogol Bordello, The Detroit Cobras, Charlie Louvin and The Hackensaw Boys. Soon after their return from the road, the band will return to working on their first ever live album project, Live At The Crystal Palace, set for a "limited edition" release during 2008, as well as their sixth studio full-length, scheduled for release during autumn 2008. This year's Unlimited Sunshine edition will include The Brazilian Girls, among other performers, targeting cities such as Los Angeles, San Diego, Portland ME, Boston, Providence, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Rochester and New York City.

I used to like CAKE, until I found out how big of ass-holes they are. Bro was in Alaska for the Fairbanks show and they only played for a half an hour due to small crowed. When they left, they just turned everything and acted like they didn't need to be there. Love the music, but guys, treat your fans with more respect.

Bonnaroo 2008 anyone?? that would be awesome, they wouldn't have to worry about a small crowd there! but halfskyrising, that is not cool at all. it does suck hearing that about a band, definitely changes the way you look at them. no need for that shit!

I have to agree. I have seen cake twice and both times the singer bitched for about a half hour even yelling at the audience a few times. They did sound good when they took time off from bitching.

Great music, short sets and contempt for the audience. That was the theme at Roseland Ballroom a couple years ago. They left the stage after 45 minutes, no encore, but then the singer (among a chorus of boos)found the time to berate the crowd for wanting more.
