GETAWAY, The Launderettes fourth studio album and 1st for Wicked Cool is inspired by the hardboiled pulp novel The Killer Inside Me (1952) by Jim Thompson. The protagonist of the novel gets away with living a double life as a serial killer, and the book has developed a cult following because the story is told through the eyes of a twisted, sadistic psychopath.
The Launderettes use GETAWAY as a means to end the story differently. The band returns to the desert to explore the good and evil in everyone, sharing the struggle of choosing between wrong and right.
FOUR singles from GETAWAY have been featured as Coolest Songs in the World on The Underground Garage, and four 7” vinyl are also available. The Launderettes are confirmed for an appearance on Season Two of Lilyhammer (Netflix, January 2014), performing their next Coolest Song: “Hot Rocks.” GETAWAY can also be purchased in the shop on a beautiful, three color vinyl (which includes a full album, 320kb quality download) or on CD. STREET DATE is NOVEMBER 5, 2013
