After an absence of several years, the third album from My Diet Pill is finally ready! It should be titled: "Songs For Your Daughters And Sons".
A few months ago, we have solicited our fans to choose 11 songs from the 15 that were recorded. This project is the natural evolution and the final step of that operation.
As for our previous record which was released as a CD included inside a comic book that we have created, we wanted to repeat that experience of artistic collaboration and have therefore decided to share our songs with French photographer Roxane Petitier for her to illustrate with pictures in the booklet.

Mp3 extract, "Happy couple" (featuring Heather Larimer):
This album was recorded in Nice by Morgan Manzi, a talented sound engineer in addition of beeing a friend, and was mixed in San Francisco by Monte Vallier, bass player of the cult band Swell who has also produced american artists such as Mark Eitzel, The Soft Moon and Weekend. We have been fans of his work for many years and working with him was a great honour. We are very happy with this collaboration. The mastering was made by Rémy Pelleschi (Mlada Fronta) with whom we have already worked on "First album" and on "Beautiful Girls Like Science Fiction".
We are really excited to be able to present this new album to you!
We wanted not only to create a quality album, but also to give you a complete and rich product which we could be proud of. For that reason, we plan to release this 11 track album in a package including a 180 gram vinyl, a CD, a digital version and a booklet including all the lyrics and the pictures illustrating all the songs.
This project will be followed by a concert/art exhibition by My Diet Pill and Roxane Petitier, probably in April or May 2015.
Sample picture by Roxane for the booklet:
My Diet Pill formed in Nice in the late 90s and is a formation of four musicians, in a style that can be identified as "indie rock". To date, the band has released two albums, three EPs of which one includes five tracks + ten remixes and covers. In 2005, the “Second Album” sold 6000 copies and garnered the group a small and quite unexpected notoriety for a self-produced band. In addition to the airplay on American college radio stations, several songs were used in TV shows (CBS in the USA, M6 in France...) which helped My Diet Pill reach a wider audience.
Roxane Petitier is a photographer, videographer and performer. After her studies in Paris, she started to explore art and press photography, but also portraits and collaborates with famous French newspaper Liberation. Winner of the 2013 "Photo magazine"/Sony prize in the portrait category, she stages meaningful scenes with very expressive characters.
Since 2010, she creates various multi-art projects combining video projection, choreography and music. Several of those exhibitions and projets such as "Nouvelle Ere" or "Mouvements anthropomorphiques have received excellent reviews.
