Thanks to the wonders of AOL Instant Messenger I was able to snag some mono-a-mono time with Eric Victorino, the former lead vocalist of Strata and brainchild behind electro-pop group The Limousines. Topics covered in the interview included plans for a debut LP, as well as the possibility of a headlining tour. So, without further ado, actual dialogue from the conversation that took place:
DevillnMyShoebox (3:55:34PM): Hey Eric, I'm a big fan of Strata and The Limousines. I was surfing on your MySpace page the other day and came across your screenname, and was wondering if I could ask you a few questions...Hopefully this isn't intrusive or annoying...But anyway, I was curious if The Limousines have an LP planned for release this year?
Screennamewitheld (3:59:45PM): yeah
DevillnMyShoebox (3:59:48PM): AWESOME!!! And any plans for a nationwide tour?
Screennamewitheld (4:05:12PM): nope
DevillnMyShoebox (4:05:20PM): Thanks a lot Eric!
There you have it folks, straight from the horse's mouth - The Limousines will be releasing an LP sometime this year, and they may or may not, one way or another, whether it be as a headlining or supporting act, tour. As always, Eric was really engaging and a delight to talk to, so if you get a chance, hit him up sometime.
