Listen to "Broken Heart" on BBC Radio 1
On June 19th Brett Gurewitz (owner of Epitaph Records) co-hosted the Punk Show with Mike Davies on BBC Radio 1. One of the tracks they played happened to be "Broken Heart" (the first single from Even If It Kills Me). You can listen to the show at bbc.co.uk/radio1/mikedavies. If you are having trouble finding it, you can fast forward about 1 hour and 33 minutes in... clicking the 15 minutes button about 6 times should get you to 1 hour and 30 minutes in then just wait.

If you're looking to purchase "Broken Heart", downloadpunk.com has both the regular version and clean version available for a pre order, and a picture of what appears to be the single cover art. The single will be officially released at midnight EST on June 26.

New Album Art for Even If It Kills Me?
Motion City Soundtrack's splash page at motioncitysoundtrack.com has been updated with what appears to be the new Even If It Kills Me album art (shown below). The Epitaph newsletter for this week also says this:

"Broken Heart will be the first song you'll hear off their amazingly amazing, catch, fun, exciting new record Even If It Kills Me - Sept 18th. I won't hype it up too much, but MCS does NOT disappoint. The digital single will drop next week along with a sweet new video. Keep a look out for a new and improved album cover too. See them this summer with the Higher."

... which suggests that this is likely to be it. yay! What do you all think? Personally I like it MUCH better than the previous version that Epitaph had put up.

Even If It Kills Me

UK Tour Dates Postponed
Motion City Soundtrack has announced (in a MySpace blog) that the upcoming UK tour dates they had scheduled for next week will be postponed until September. The new dates will be announced in a few days and tickets purchased for the June concerts will be honored in September. Additionally, the band says that they will be able to add more shows to the tour, including some places that they have not played before. You can read part of the message below:

Due to scheduling issues with the new album we regretfully have to announce that we are moving our June tour dates to September. We apologize for this delay, and please know that we are disappointed that we cannot make it over as originally planned.

These shows will be rescheduled for September and we'll announce these new dates in a few days, in fact, before end of this week. All tickets purchased will be honoured for the September shows, and if you cannot attend the new scheduled date you will be able to get a refund at the point of purchase with full booking fee. And while it's a bummer we can't come in June, moving to September will enable us to add more shows in more markets; markets that we're very excited about playing for the first time!
