Joey Ramone: Birthday Bash in NYC 05/19, New Album "... Ya Know?" 05/22

Posted on the 11 May 2012 by Hctf @hctf

This year's Birthday Bash for Joey Ramone will be held on May 19th at The Studio @ Webster Hall, NYC. A posthumous new CD, ...Ya Know? will be released on May 22. The tracks were cut at various times during the last decade and a half of his life. Joey's brother Mickey Leigh:

Over the past eight years I've been getting a barrage of emails and Facebook messages from Joey's fans, wanting to know when this album would be coming out. So having it finally become a reality gives me a feeling of triumph - not for me, but for my brother, and for his fans. And there's not the slightest doubt in my mind that people are gonna be blown away by it.

The $40 ticket price includes an advance copy of the CD signed by various musicians in attendance, and the official 2012 Birthday Bash t-shirt, not available elsewhere. As in past years, proceeds from the Bash go to benefit the Joey Ramone Foundation for Lymphoma Research.

A free download of one of the album's tracks, What Did I Do To Deserve You?, can be picked up from the official website. The album's opener, Rock 'N Roll Is The Answer, was released as a limited edition Record Store Day 7".
