Cake Information

90’s geek-rock California band Cake self-released and self-distributed their first single, “Rock’ n Roll Lifestyle” on a local basis, revealing just how homespun a group they are. Unbeknownst to them, the track debuted at number 21 on the US Modern Rock Tracks. With several hits throughout the 90’s and 2000’s from their six studio albums, Cake’s best hits are “The Distance” and “Short Skirt/ Long Jacket”, as well as an alternative remake of “I Will Survive”. With an eclectic mix of genres cued throughout their career, Cake’s collection of tracks combine funk, pop, jazz, country and rap. Their songs seem to be embedded in movies and television shows more so than on radio stations, “Short Skirt/ Long Jacket” being featured in three movies and the theme to NBC’s Chuck alone.

A new studio album is currently in the works, to be released for fall 2010. Currently untitled, John McCrea describes the album's sound as "very different" from previous Cake records, also suggesting that he will be playing piano much more than usual. The band hasn’t released a record since 2007’s album, B-sides and Rarities. Starting next week Cake will be touring the US, playing the Lowell Summer Music Series on July 16th and the Green River Festival in Greenfield, MA on July 18th. They will wrap up their tour September 18th with a final show at the Orpheum in Boston.
