PopWreckoning: It seems as if October is Army Navy month. You guys have your new self-titled album coming out on The Fever Zone label and then you're also on the Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist soundtrack and you've got a song on a Cure tribute album coming out.That interview was posted in early September. You may have caught Army Navy at CMJ (not at MSG though). If not, you have one more NYC chance to catch the LA band on this tour, and it's tonight (Tuesday, October 28th) at Union Hall. The Young Lords, The Takeover UK and The Shys are also on the Brooklyn bill. All dates below...
Justin Kennedy, Army Navy: Yeah, it's pretty nuts. We have two songs in Nick and Norah's: one song's on the soundtrack and we just found out that they're actually using the song [pause] we released an exclusive track just for the soundtrack, and the other track is off our record.
We just found out two days ago that they're using the song on our record for the TV commercial for Nick and Norah, which is pretty insane.
PW: Yeah, that's awesome!
JK: We'll be like everywhere! That's fuckin' nuts!
PW: It's crazy. Congratulations, that's huge! You'll be rockin' out at Madison Square Garden next time you're in New York, I bet. [laughs]
