Midnight Movies In Bed With Make-Up, Sneakers, Blonde RedheadMidnight Movies' hypnotic sounds have captivated more than fans. The L.A. foursome has partnered with U.K.-based cosmetics company Rimmel to be one of its brand ambassadors for the launch of a new line. Sneak peaks of the hip Underground line have made it into the pages of high-end fashion magazines and the band will be involved in forthcoming promotions. In addition, Midnight Movies was chosen to represent Vans for its Fall 2007 girls campaign to include shoes, apparel and accessories, with print ads, web and in-store visuals hitting June 2007.

With the Alexi Murdoch support tour coming to an end in Los Angeles in early March, Midnight Movies won't be wasting any time preparing for the release of their anticipated album, LION THE GIRL, on New Line Records, April 24. They'll bring their psychedelic pop to Austin for several shows before joining art-rockers Blonde Redhead for a string of dates.

Early press has praised their sophomore LP, inciting raves from URB Magazine, "the album is a schizophrenic patchwork of pop hooks, ethereal fuzz and whispers of Grace Slick" as well as Venus, "Complex, psychedelic, aural onslaught complete with swirling guitars and a threatening bass undertone, all kept at bay by Olivier's commanding voice." Alternative Press included them in their '100 Bands You Need to Know' issue, exclaiming, "With a sound steeped in electronic-rock ambience and dusky pop hooks, Midnight Movies' crowning jewel is Olivier's honeyed, unforgettable voice."
