Stars are asking you if you're a sad robot. They want to know, because they're releasing their new EP, Sad Robots, through their spankin' new Sad Robots web site.
Starting on September 1st, the EP will be available, with a free MP3 of the song Going, Going, Gone available on the same date. Stars peeps may remember the song from the Stars album Nightsongs, but the version they're giving away for free is a live version.
The music for Sad Robot was written and recorded over the summer at Studio Plateau in Montreal, Quebec. The independent release quietly marks the end of their relationship with Arts&Crafts, who released the band's In Our Bedroom After The War in September of 2007.
There's also tour dates, because a band's got to make a livin.' They'll be heading out for North American dates starting in September and ending in in November.
