December 14th 2008 - Another set of remixes - Dragon On The Wagon collaboration

Christ On A Bike have been working with Noisehead artist Dragon On The Wagon in a collaboration which will see the remix by DOTW of "It's Like Maybe, Love" remixed and re-titled as "It's Like Love, Maybe". The song is given an industrial dance workover by the man from Alpha Sygni (?!) . However, the remix is already loaded on at Noisehead and is likely to feature on a remix LP entitled "Remix The World" which COAB plan to put out in the New Year by way of a thank you to those who have supported them.

The band have also been given an opportunity in return to remix the DOTW track "Tiger On The Ice" which they have also passed onto fellow label-mates, The Groove Avengers and Trancel8r. they have both finished a remix each so it's now down to Chris and Holly to deliver a few themselves! So far, DOTW's comments on the TGA remix have been "wow"! You can hear both remixes on Noisehead at their respective band sites, so click below for the Noisehead band links.

April 24th 2008 - Christ On A Bike working hard on their 7th LP provisionally entitled "Download The World"

Although we have seen The Groove Avengers make a big impression with their first LP last year and now we have Trancel8r rocking the dance floors with his up and coming new LP, what has the COAB twosome being doing?

Well, the band have been working hard at their Purfleet studios on remixes for other people (see our Remixes page) as well as recording new material throughout 07 and 08 for their 7th LP in just four years! At present one of the new songs "Download The World" is being slated as the title for the new LP which will feature the band going back to their electro pop roots with some hard pop/dance sounds and even more fresh beats this time around. There are also some stunning dance songs being cooked up and a plethora of silky commercial pop tunes including, just as importantly, a couple of pop ballads which will make you nod your head from side to side like a Cliff Richard Xmas hit and burst into highly emotional tears! But all done to much better musical content, mind!!

So far, Chris who is the main writer for the LP reckons the LP will be out in the Autumn (or the Fall for our Yankie friends!). Keep an eye and ear out for some playable tracks being added to our Downloads Page in the up and coming future and announcements of the first single. Trust us, there is going to be so many possible singles it will be difficult to choose!
