Forthcoming : Guided By Voices Issue 3 Singles with 3 Different Labels

Somewhere in or around Dayton, OH Robert Pollard is undoubtedly celebrating his birthday this evening in a way that we assume is completely Pollardian. Earlier today the pre-order links went live at Rockathon/The Factory of Raw Essentialls for the first recordings in 15 years from GBV's 1992-1996 line up, Let's Go Eat The Factory. Which will be released via and GBV, Inc on January 1st and to brick and mortar shops on January 16th/17th. As if that wasn't enough to get the total fan boys at The AGP HQ, giddy, we also learned today that the band will release 3 separate 7" singles with three different labels. On November 22nd Matador will issue the double A sided single, The Unsinkable Fats Domino b/w We Won't Apologize For The Human Race. U.K. based Fire Records will release Doughnut For A Snowman 7" wich also features 4 non album b-sides, Rockathon has already sold out of the 250 copies they had to see but you can still gran them from Fire. Finally in December GBV, Inc. will offer the Chocolate Boy 7" and features the Tobin Sprout b-side, As The Girls Sing Downing, available in shops on January 17th.

We've embedded Doughnut For A Snowman below, mainly because we can't stop listening to it. prepare yourself for a nostalgia inducing slice of perfect pop and a track Pollard recently described as "the twinkliest song he's ever written"
