There’s so much Penguin Prison news to tell you about! NOTE: Video Shoot information for October 15, 2011 at #OccupyWallStreet is at the bottom of this post.
First off, Penguin Prison’s self-titled debut album is being released in the USA on October 18, 2011. It’s a leading contender for my favorite album of the year. Every song is catchy and upbeat. You’re going to love every song on the record and it’s going to be your favorite party record of 2011. The album’s closer, the Radiohead-esque “Someone Got Everything” is going to make you really appreciate the gift that Chris Glover possesses. I am so excited for this album to become huge!
The next single will be “Don’t Fuck With My Money,” and I dare you to sit still while that song plays!
Chris Glover recently stopped by East Village Radio to play acoustic versions of “Don’t Fuck With My Money” and “Golden Train.” The show streamed live on October 13, 2011 and will be part of the EVR archives very soon, so keep checking back.
Penguin Prison’s Chris Glover isn’t just a talented singer and multi-instrumentalist however. He’s also a great remixer and his remix of Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans” is tearing up the internet.
Penguin Prison are scheduled for many performances next week as a part of CMJ in New York and you can catch them on:
October 17, 2011 Conflict of Interest at Rebel NYC located at 251 W 30th Street.

Saturday, October 15th at 08:00AM we are calling all Occupy Wall Street supporters and Penguin Prison fans to join Chris Glover and Jake Sumner the video’s director on a protest march that will take us from Liberty Plaza at 08:00AM where Penguin Prison will perform his forthcoming single ‘Don’t F**k With My Money” for the official video. We will then will proceed to leave Liberty Plaza with fellow protesters (and YOU!) to march on forward all the way up to Times Square from 11AM.
The Plan: Meet Penguin Prison and us on the corner of Maiden Lane and Broadway (1 block North of the plaza) at 8:00AM, where we can proceed to Liberty Plaza together.
08:00AM – Strength in numbers! Join the protest, be heard and be in Penguin Prison’s video that is already steadily becoming the anthem for this movement!
11:00AM – This is when authorities are kicking everyone out of Liberty Plaza and when we will all begin the march uptown that will eventually lead us to Times Square by the late afternoon.
Spread the word!!!!
