Brooklyn-based multi-genrist Tim Fite will release a new free, Halloween-centric recording via his website (www.timfite.com) on October 31st, 2008. Available for one day only, the innovative song cycle entitled ding dong Ditch comes at the culmination of his tour with Man Man and will be celebrated with a special Halloween show at the Starlight Ballroom in Philadelphia.
Fite says “I will be handing out more candy on Halloween this year, and all the bad kids are excited!!!”
Last year Fite had a bowl full of It's Only Ketchup - his first haunting collection of Halloween music up for one day only for free, featuring such spine tickling classics as "We Look Good Together," a sweet song about switching body parts with his love. The EP received over 12,000 downloads in one day as several influential blogs wrote of his intention to put the work up for a single day, or as Fite told Spinner.com “I am choosing ‘treat’…or is it ‘trick’?” Yet, the abrupt going-away of the EP left fans scrambling to find the songs elsewhere on the web.
This year Fite is adding a few more songs to his costume clad repertoire in the form of a brand new EP ding dong Ditch - a bone crunching, titty twisting examination of the less savory rituals of Hallows Eve. If you have ever hurled an egg at a neighbor, stolen candy from a baby, dug a shallow grave, or been disappointed by a box of raisins ding dong Ditch is the soundtrack for your Halloween mischief!
Stay tuned for more news on Fite’s recent proper release for ANTI- Fair Ain’t Fair which has received rave reviews in SPIN, Filter, and Alternative Press, and which he’ll continue to tour behind in the US and Australia.
