Blood Red Shoes - Box Of Secrets [2008-MP3-V0] RiP-OiNK b0bb0.nfo
Box Of Secrets is the debut album by Brighton-based rock band Blood Red Shoes, which was released on April 14 2008, on the Mercury Records label. The album was leaked to the internet during November 2007.
Several of the tracks were previously released as limited edition singles by the band, including "I Wish I Was Someone Better", "ADHD", "It's Getting Boring By The Sea" and "You Bring Me Down". The latter single was re-recorded and re-issued prior to the album's release. "Try Harder" was a B-side on the original single release of "You Bring Me Down". All of the band's singles appear as rerecorded versions on Box Of Secrets, with the exception of "I Wish I Was Someone Better". The single "Say Something, Say Anything" was released on April 7, 2008, to coincide with the album release.
Interestingly, the title track does not appear on the album. "Box Of Secrets" was a B-side on the "It's Getting Boring By The Sea" single. The title is derived from a phrase between the two members to describe things that they can tell each other, but not anyone else.
The closing track, "Hope You're Holding Up", is the only Blood Red Shoes song to feature someone other than the band themselves playing an instrument, with Harriet from Los Campesinos! playing the violin.
