The 88 (www.the88.net) announced today that they have released a new five-song EP No One Here exclusively via iTunes. The title track of the EP is something fans of the hit CBS comedy show How I Met Your Mother should be especially interested in, as the song was featured on the episode “Something Borrowed” from season two, episode 21 which first aired May 7, 2007.
The release of No One Here coincides with an incredibly busy time for The 88. The band is currently on the road through March with Kinks frontman Ray Davies. The band both opens the show with their original material and also close each show backing Davies, performing classic Kinks tracks. For the annual SXSW (www.sxsw.com) music convention beginning tomorrow in Austin, TX., The 88 will perform at La Zona Rosa on a power packed bill with Davies, Nicole Atkins featuring Future Clouds and Radar, John Hiatt and Roky Erickson with Okkervil River on Thursday March 18, 2010.
