The 88 Set Release

(PR) Island Records announced today that The 88 will release their major label debut Not Only... But Also on August 26, 2008.

With songs produced by Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds (Eric Clapton, Fall Out Boy, Madonna) and songs produced by Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Paul Westerberg, Faith No More), Not Only� But Also features eleven new tracks that perfectly lock in the band's signature sound.

The first single, "Coming Home", will be serviced to radio on June 30 and available to digital retailers on July 1. The song title might be familiar to some due to its previous incarnation in commercial and television placements, but it has been re-written, re-recorded and polished into an entirely new pop gem.

Fans of The 88 will have a chance to preview new material from their August 26th release at two Southern California shows with additional tour dates to be confirmed. They are:

6/28 @ The Roxy, Los Angeles, CA (Sunset Strip Music Festival)

7/16 @ House of Blues, San Diego, CA (w/ One Republic)

"It's refreshing to go into the studio with a unique band that takes such pride in both their sound and their songwriting," said Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds. "The 88 are the real deal."

"These guys are everything that you could ever hope a rock-n-roll band to be," said producer Matt Wallace. "I have not heard music this well written, sung and played in a helluva long time. Brilliant on all levels."

Track listing for Not Only� But Also is as follows: "Go Go Go", "Love You Anytime", "Coming Home", "No One Here", "I'm Nothing", "Sons and Daughters", "It's A Lot", "Like You Do", "Save Your Breath", "Waiting for the Next Drug" and "We Felt Alive".
