Hey everybody,
Spring Break here,

We’re busy planning and rehearsing for our summer shows in the Sugar Club this coming July (13th and 20th), but have taken a little time out of our schedule to let you know about the latest Breaking news.

We hope this electronic message finds you all well.

When our official biographer, Rudy ‘Baby’ Kerzner, contacted us last year with a view to updating our authorised biography, ‘Breaking Hearts – The Spring Break Story’, it took us all of a New York Minute to agree to meet our former press agent for what we thought would be a standard, emotionally distant, heart-to-heart. “Sure, we’ll chew the cud and shoot the breeze about the Dom DeLuise incident again and hey presto; we’ll have another bestseller and a string of holiday homes in the Hamptons on our hands.”

It became quickly apparent however, that the man who had first interviewed us for Life Magazine at Gilda Radner’s Vermont summer home back in ’81, had arrived at Hilton Burbank’s penthouse suite at the Dakota building with more than just a pen, notepad and nearly 30 years of ‘remember the time’ bonhomie. He also had a set of searching questions that were linked by one word: Pulitzer.

Over the course of three soul-baring months, Rudy delved deep for answers about events we had long ago placed in a vault of emotion marked ‘That Was Yesterday’. No longer did he seem content to toast Spring Break by quaffing the champagne stories of the glory years: what he wanted was to get up close and personal; to crack open a sixer and intoxicate himself with the dull froth of the dark times. Yes; trade embargoes, and our casual flaunting of them, have bookmarked our time together as a performing group, but it nonetheless came as a surprise to us all, to find ourselves finally lifting our self-imposed ‘truth embargo’ on the tumultuous events of the year that almost broke us, as both musicians and human beings: 1985.

No topic is left uncovered in this candid tell-all which has led the New York Times to say: “A who’s who of entertainment and politics, it reads like a cultural almanac and is possibly the most important document since Battlefield Earth. From their shameless antics at the We Are the World recording session, to their misinterpreted version of the Star Spangled Banner at Wrestlemania I, right through their involvement in the advertising campaign for New Coke, and on to their infamous show in Sun City, Spring Break finally lift the lid on the Annus Horribilis that left them on the brink”.

1985 – Breaking the Silence: Volume I is released on Friday July 13 th and we’ll be taking to the stage in the Sugar Club that night to celebrate its release. The following Friday, July 20th, sees the release of 1985 – Breaking the Silence: Volume II which will be marked also by a spectacular Sugar Club show. Tickets for both these events go on sale Friday May 25 th and are available in Sound Cellar, City Discs, and online at www.tickets.ie

Below are some of the exciting stills from 1985 – Breaking the Silence: Volume II. Be sure to check back soon to www.springbreak80s.com for sensational sneak excerpts from both books.

See you at show time.

Keep the fire burnin’,
Spring Break
