The Donkeys Ride: Pre-Order Special, Massive US Tour, Release Party

The Donkeys — The Pride of San Diego — are about to release their finest record to date. Born with Stripes (released April 26 in the US) sheds a bit of ¬†the golden SoCal twang of previous efforts and places to the fore the influence of some other Cali artists — notably Pavement and the folkier leanings of Beck. And with a pre-order special launched today, you can have the entire record for your first backyard BBQ of the year this weekend. Pre-order the album now, and you will receive an mp3 download of the entire record. If you’re one of the first 25 people to pre-order the record, you will receive a two free tickets for a show on The Donkeys massive U.S. tour when they visit your respective area. Hell, we’ll even get the dudes to give you a mid-set shout-out. Maybe buy you a shot (?!?). The lucky 25 will also receive a large poster featuring the killer Born with Stripes album art by badass illustrator Tony Millionaire, best known as creator of comics Maakies and Sock Monkey, as well as the Adult Swim show Drinky Cow. The throwback-psych album art contains several easter eggs alluding to various lyrics from the record. Think the art from Prince’s Around the World in a Day for the surfer set (See below). Truly a gem.

PRE-ORDER BORN WITH STRIPES

Before the national tour begins, The Donkeys have a hometown¬†Born with Stripes record release blow-out planned for April 30 at San Diego’s Sushi Art. If you like rock music made by guitars, you should probably be there. Word has it there will be pinatas filled with booze (maybe in mini-bottle form, maybe just loose liquid). See all upcoming tour dates HERE.
