2012 has already proven to be a satisfying year for Penguin Prison. Having sold out his New Years Eve holiday show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, as well as on the West Coast this month, the band performed live on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic with Jason Bentley last week and announced further North American tour dates with label mates Mike Snow. Penguin Prison will also be headlining shows in South America and Mexico next month.
Things certainly aren’t slowing down for this acclaimed dance-pop outfit that has had Spin Magazine touting frontman Chris Glover as an “electro-pop genius” and Billboard comparing their sound to Cee-Lo and Prince.
‘Don’t F*ck With My Money’ first entered the music arena late last year accompanied by the compelling and relevant Black and White music video — directed by Jake Sumner — documenting Chris Glover with fellow protesters marching at Occupy Wall Street.
‘Don’t F*ck With My Money’ became one of the most blogged about videos, as some music fans and critics across the country used the video as a tool to express their frustrations and concerns, meanwhile, others merely posted and shared because of their love of the single, with it’s killer hooks and infectious melodies that has Glover belting out the words “Don’t f*ck with my money… or you’ll be sorry!”
Fans can now listen and enjoy the DFWMM LP available on all good digital platforms (Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, Beatport). Boasting 14 different versions of the single, including an unheard acoustic rendition by Glover himself, plus remixes by Fools Gold artist and remix maestro Sammy Bananas, Billboard chart topping Dave Audé and club favorite Reed McGowan amongst others.
