The Breeders release their new single 'Son Of Three' on 4AD on Monday the 2nd of September 2002. The single finds the band revisiting their popular album track and re-recording it at breakneck speed, matching their live show velocity. 'Son Of Three' was recorded during rare days off snatched between the end of their European tour and the beginning of their current 30 date US tour.
In true Breeders form, the b-sides are pretty special too featuring the band's ode to popular tv character Buffy The Vampire Slayer and a fantastic live version of 'Safari', recorded at The Melkweg in Amsterdam earlier this year. The Breeders cover of 'Buffy Theme', a current live favourite, has sparked off a friendship with the tv show's producer, and plans are afoot for the Deal sisters to make a cameo appearance in a future episode!
All tracks were recorded at Track Studios in North Hollywood, and written by Kim Deal, with the exception of 'Buffy Theme'.
The Breeders are Richard Presley, Mando Lopez, Jose Medeles, Kelley Deal and Kim Deal. The band will be returning to Europe for festival appearances in August as follows:
Thursday 22nd of August - Pukkelpop, Belgium
Friday 23rd of August - Carling Weekend, Reading
Saturday 24th of August - Carling Weekend, Leeds
Sunday 25th of August - Lowlands, Holland
