My band Anxieteam are playing in the UK to promote the release of our first ever single.

27 August at the Lexington in London, from 8pm, £3 on the door or buy a ticket in advance.
28 August at Nottingham Contemporary in Nottingham, from 8pm FREE entry.

Advance copies of the single and an exclusive print will be available from the gigs.

Jim Avignon and myself are really happy and excited that record label Hello Thor are releasing our double A side single Let’s Eat Soya / Lonely In The Digital World on futuristic 7” picture disc!

The record will be available from both the Nottingham and London gigs. Please do not miss this chance to see my band. We’ve never played in the UK before and I am very nervous! The release of the record will be in September so this is a great chance to pick it up early. Other goodies will be available too.

Hello Thor’s Press Release about their most recent signing goes as follows:

On 20th September 2010 Hello Thor Records release the debut single (on limited edition 7” picture disc) by Anxieteam, the brand new musical collaboration between internationally-acclaimed visual artists Jim Avignon and Jon Burgerman.

Burgerman is probably the most famous doodle artist in the world - his instantly recognisable, vibrant creations have taken him from Beijing to Brooklyn, from Naples to Tokyo. Avignon is a cult figure in the underground art & music scenes in Berlin - making music since 1997 and releasing 9 albums under the moniker Neoangin.

Meeting for the first time for a two man show in Bushwick, Brooklyn in 2008, Burgerman and Avignon developed a close friendship. And then came their band, Anxieteam - Burgerman on vocals and ukelele, Avignon on everything else.

Anxieteam splice together merry electronic pop melodies with dry, sardonic lyrics. It is music as colourful and as full of humour as each man’s paintings, and equally as fraught with doubt and longing.

Anxieteam have already played a series of bright, super-fun gigs (complete with masks, dancers, salad-making workshops, and digital portrait-making) in New York, Germany and Italy. Let’s Eat Soya / Lonely In The Digital World – recorded in New York, mixed in Berlin, mastered in LA, and released on limited edition 7” picture disc through Hello Thor Records on 20th September 2010 - will be the band’s debut single.

Through the magic of electronic sounds and fumbled strumming on the ukulele, Anxieteam will transport you to a dreamy electronic, lo-fi, blip-bloppy pop world of anxiety, heartbreak and salads.
