Flight of the Conchords full-length coming in April
Those of us suffering from Kiwi withdrawal won’t have to wait much longer: New Zealand’s Flight of the Conchords will release their first full-length album on April 22, 2008, Hollywood Insider has confirmed. The news caps off an exciting year for Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie (pictured). Just last week, the duo’s EP, The Distant Future (released last summer), scored a Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album, and in August they learned that their HBO show was picked up for a second season. But unlike their TV counterparts, the guys opted to record their proper debut in L.A. rather than Brooklyn or their homeland. Producer Mickey Petralia (Beck’s Midnight Vultures) manned the boards, and Seattle’s Sub Pop Records will release the finished product.
