The World's Best Ex-Boyfriend Speaks

Ad Frank Hits Boston, DC, NYC, CT

BOSTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 3, 2005 -- Probably the unluckiest guy in love, Boston's Ad Frank is packing up his band, the Fast Easy Women, and hitting the road for a handful of dates in support of his recently released album, The World's Best Ex-Boyfriend, his third full-length album on indie Stop, Pop, and Roll.

His upcoming shows are:

June 3 Cambridge, MA @ TT the Bear's with Les Sans Culottes
June 9 Arlington, VA @ Iota with Jackie Greene
June 10 New York, NY @ Piano's
July 9 New London, CT @ Sailfest
In typical snarky fashion, Ad Frank challenges fans to dispute his claims of being the "World's Best Ex-Boyfriend" on his website, www.adfrank.com. Asking for personal stories of being slighted by ex-lovers, Ad goes through each entry and chooses a winner (or "loser") weekly.

With this follow-up to 2003's In Girl Trouble, Ad Frank delivers sometimes heart-breaking, sometimes bitter, but always razor-sharp and witty trips through his psyche. The awesomely titled "If I Find Another One of Your Bobby Pins in My Bed, I'm Coming By to Shove Them Up You’re A**" drips with angst while delicate strings weave in and out of Queen-esque epic guitars. The spacy and spooky treatment of "Cool" traipses around smoky hallways of the mind, yearning for times when "you used to be cool." "Unspeakable" recalls 60's car-revving crooners, and can bring tears to even the strongest of men. "I love these songs and the boys [his band, The Fast Easy Women] did such a lovely job with the arrangements," beams Ad.

A critics' darling, The World's Best Ex-Boyfriend has garnered praise from Amplifier, who proclaimed, "The songs [from this album] derive their DNA from melancholy early English synth pop with a dash of the world-weary cabaret of Bryan Ferry." The Boston Globe heralded that the album "bursts with lovelorn desperation and dark wit."

The World's Best Ex-Boyfriend was mixed by Matthew Ellard (Tanya Donnelly, George Michael, Queen) and is distributed nationally by Redeye Distribution.
