I love love love MEN – in all senses of the word. However the band of the same name have just announced that their next single will be "Off Our Backs" which sees the gender-bending band take on sexual politics and innovative new ways to "fuck their friends and make little tiny babies". This song has been rockin on the pod for quite some time now and it's an ear-pleaser for all you synth-pop fiends who love a good groover. The "Off Our Backs" single will include a digital bundle of remixes that are sure to delight when it's released on Novemer 1st.
MEN have also announced a new UK tour and dates can be found after the jump. And if all that isn't enough for you MEN fans, they have also announced the name of their new album which will be called "Talk About Body" – coming out of the pre-release closet early 2011 – horrah! "Talk About Body" goes to the top of my most anticipated albums of 2011 now – dead serious.
