NAPOLEON IIIRD Summer Tour 2008 / “Hideki Yukawa” mini-album




“A wonder from Leeds… he regularly plays gigs with a freestanding guitar which explodes into light… wonderful.” – NME

“One of the most visionary solo artists in the world today.” – Drowned In Sound

“The Leeds-based king of his own melodious empire… rippling electronic puddles and muddy swirls of flotsam… good people of this realm, welcome to Napoleon IIIrd.” – Plan B

“Puts so much heart and soul into every verse, chorus and middle eight that you need a defibrillator.” – Artrocker

“Hit Schmooze For Me is the finest tune to rail against the daily grind since, well, 9 To 5.” – The Guardian



After a storming 2007 that saw the release of his critically acclaimed debut album “In Debt To:”, Napoleon IIIrd is back for 2008 with a new live band, a national tour and a mini-album, entitled “Hideki Yukawa”.

The mini-album presents 6 new songs that thematically and musically continue the journey
“In Debt To” began, painting stories about mortality, extinction, ecology, capitalism and ‘The Strong Nuclear Force’ that holds us all together, all in Napoleon IIIrd’s unique sonic palette. It’ll be out this summer on Brainlove / On The Bone, but you can get a preview of the new songs by seeing him live, clicking to his MySpace at http://www.myspace.com/boney3 or previewing the first two full tracks at http://www.last.fm/music/Napoleon+IIIrd/Hideki+Yukawa
