"tru sadness is reality" apparently

At least this press release makes a change from the East London Urchin-type things where they quack on about licking Pete Doherty's crack-blackened ballbag in Shadwell, but this is perhaps the apogee of drag / US hipster nonsense. In fact, we're more than a little suspicious it might come from similar hoaxers to those who did that Salem wind-up the other month. Anyway, to promote their latest record ✞ ‡ᴍӎ▲ↄʊᴌ8 ✞, the group Lovedied (or ✞▇ L♥ѵʒﬦɨϵﬦ ▇✞ as they prefer to be called, they sent the press release below. You can listen to their preposterous record here

let me describe lovedied 4 u:

if u can imagine 4 me:

do u remember the beautiful green hills vista that was ur favrit desktop on WINDOWS XP (RIP)? now its not grass, its an infinite crying ocean

n all the icons on ur desktop r crying/

hav u seen the tv show "DAWWSOONS CREEK"?

do u remember how that guy and that girl was in love on the tv show

do u ever imagine how its like when those actrs will get old

and their tru sadness is reality
