Freakin Eureka is the long-standing NJ garage rock band, Dipsomaniacs', much-anticipated follow-up to their successful 2001 release, The Life You're Faking. The new album, which was recorded between October 2002 and May 2003 in the Big Room at Philadelphia's Indre Studios, features eleven new songs in the Dipsos' distinctive Replacements-via-Fountains of Wayne garage pop style. Mick Chorba's songwriting on Freakin Eureka is as strong as ever, and the playing is more straight-ahead than it has ever been. Many of the loose ends are left tidily untied, capturing the live energy of the band with spontaneous-sounding arrangements that feel like low lights and American beer. The Dipsomaniacs have been growing in popularity with each successive release. Since selling out the first pressing of their previous album, the band has toured regionally, made festival appearances at the Dewey Beach Pop Fest and the International Pop Overthrow Festivals in Los Angeles and New York, and contributed tracks to several compilation CDs including the popular Left of the Dial Replacements tribute album. They have also successfully worked to build a strong live fan base through regular shows in New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Delaware and Baltimore. The band now looks to expand their reach through more touring in support of Freakin Eureka, including a planned Midwestern stint that will revolve around their performance at the 2004 International Pop Overthrow festival in Chicago.
