*Here is the official blurb on These Are The Days:
Multi-platinum group O-Town is back and poised for the next level with their second album, O-Town2. The band couldn't be more ready to show their talents separate from "Making the Band", the reality show that first introduced and united O-Towns members. Their new reign kicked off last week (September 30) when their first single, a rock/pop smash "These Are The Days", was the fourth most added record to US Top 40 radio, gracing the playlists of over 60 stations nationwide. In only two days the track received over 230,000 audio hits on AOLs home page earlier last week. "These Are The Days" gives an exciting glimpse at the bands new direction.
The following news tidbits is from: Chris (knoxy04)
O2 has yet to enter the top 75 in the UK yet, however this is down to no promotional work done. Thankfully the guys made there first UK tv appearance in a while on T4's Popworld and it looks like these are th days will be released soon also! In the interview Ashley spoke of being single, Jacob of being married and his monkey(ain't he great?), Dan smiled, Trevor laughed and claimed he had the best personality and Erik just ate pancakes! I'll keep u informed with dates of releases but the albumn is out so tell people to buy it in the UK!
Thank you to Celine for the following UK info
The new O-Town cd will be released in the UK on November 11th and will be called "O-Town 2." O-Town is unable to call their second cd "O2" in the United Kingdom because the UK has a telecommunications company calle 'O2'.

Thank you to Corinna for the following info
O-Town will be coming to Germany for 5 concerts in July. It's something like a summerfestival-tour organized by a local radio station called "Antenne Bayern". There will be also some other artists appearing, for example Joe Cocker and Vanessa Amorosi. The dates for these summerfestivals are:
07/08/02 neu ulm
07/09/02 mainfrankenpark bei würzburg
Thank you to www.o-town-house.de.vu and Bravo.de for the following info
"Now the official German Release date is known to us. It's going to be July 22nd 2002. Still unknown is the name of the second Album an its Release date in the USA. Altough nobody has said it's true, most people tinhk it'll be the 9th of July. One thing that's sure again is the German Release of the Single: July 8th will be the date to play truant and go to the music store. But again unknown is what will be on the next Single. Nobody knows if it will be "I Showed Her" (an o-town-like ballade that will be send to US Radiostations on May 6th) or if it will be the Nelly-Combo, or even anything different."
"Also some news about the Tourdates are available. Although some of the Dates of O-Town's US Tour are crossing those of a German summer festival, the management said that they will be part of this little Germany Tour. Another date, the VIVA Comet at Cologne, isn't officially confirmed but like bravo sais: probable."
"The most interesting thing for German Fans is, altough written in the last two sentences, that MTV Germany is going to show the 3rd Season of Making the Band beginning on July 23rd."
"So this will be a hot summer, especially for O-Town fans."
Thank you to O-Town Up-2-Dates for the following info

The reason why Love Should be A Crime was realsed over in the UK and
Europe was because the UK fans began e-mailing BMG (the record company O-Town
are signed to) and posting endless threads on the
www.o-townmusic.co.uk (the offical UK website) message board to make them release LSBAC as a
single because they liked the single so much. It also helped them
promote their UK tour. The single was a flop though because it only got to 38
in the top 40 singles. This was due to lack of promotion and the fact that
the video was released 2 days before the single came out and radio stations
NEVER got a copy of the single.
Thank you Mark for the following info

They are going to be at a show called 'Bravo TV' on Sunday, 17th of February. There'll be a live special. The Bravo TV-Team went with the guys on tour for 48 hrs.
Love Should Be A Crime - released February 11th!
Hot from their recent sell-out UK Tour, the awesome O-Town are releasing the most gutsy, guitar-powered pop single Love Should Be A Crime on 11th February 2002! Their colossal success owes much to the triumph of the TV series which documented their rise to fame, next month, we will be able to witness first hand what Ashley, Jacob, Erik, Dan, and Trevor do best: polished, power-charged pop. But that's not all, as the guys say themselves, their colossal success also owes much to YOU, the fans!
Over this last year, O-Town's passion, talent and drive has successfully proved the fans right and the critics wrong. Those of you that caught them LIVE in the UK know just how talented this group is!
Love Should Be A Crime is driven by jangling guitar riffs and rocking drums and shows yet another musical side to O-Town. Their ability to effortlessly switch musical styles as demonstrated in this latest offering is, without doubt, what sets O-Town apart from the others.
LIVE IN NY - released February 18th!
Our big cheeses here took great notices at your protests for the 'O-Town Live From New York' DVD and VHS to be released here in the good old UK. And - HEY PRESTO- they have gone and done it! Yes, O-Town Live From New York will be released here in the UK on UK formats (DVD and VHS) on 18th February 2002!
O-Town - Live From New York was captured on the last night of their cold out summer tour at New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom show on October 10th. The DVD features an hour long concert containing 12 O-Town songs including the fabulous eye popping Liquid Dreams, the heart-rending power ballad All Or Nothing, the searing We Fit Together plus the infamous Baby I Would, Sensitive, Sexiest Woman Alive, Painter, Shy Girl, Love Should Be A Crime and Every Six Seconds. There is also a very special, surprise version, of Girl, comprising of a special medley featuring For The Love Of Money and Puffy Coombs It's All About The Benjamin's and Mo Money, Mo Problems.
The DVD also contains the smash videos to Liquid Dreams, All Or Nothing and We Fit Together plus interactive bios for each band member, song lyrics, exclusive photos and much, much more! It's SO unmissable it hurts!
Correction on a TV date. The BMG Greman site made a mistake about the INTERAKTIV show on VIVA. It is on February 6, NOT March. Thanks Deni!

ARTICLES from BRAVO Magazine
(The english may not be too well due to translation)
*** Ashley: My good intention for 2002: I want to sleep more and appear punctually to my appointments.
*** SMS Inerview:
- Hey, Ashley, you have well goten some days off for New Year's Eve?
- Well obviously. It was magnificent. We had a a little free time and all were at home to celebrate with our families and friends.
- Erik, is it good to be home again after all the touring?
- Somehow already, because it is so quiet suddenly. In the beginning it was brilliant. I have written songs. But finally I couldn't wait for it hardly, with the boys to tour again.
- A new year has begun. Is there something which you fear, Dan and
- Dan: I don't actually fear anything, except death.
Jacob: I fear not to do justice to the demands, that are put on us. Everything has started so well. Failing now would be an absolute nightmare!
- Trevor, you also have fears? - Actually not. I believe, to be alone would be terrible. And never to fall in love would be terrible too.
On January 16, O-Town came to Germany to act for a Soap called "Gute Zeiten Schlechte Zeiten". They kept the whole operation top secret. So nobody really knows that O-Town were in Germany. What are they gonna do in the Soap? They'll act as O-Town!! They'll perform in "Daniel's Bar" as O-Town.. The whole story will air on March 7th on RTL.
"Liquid Dreams" was shown on MTV Europe. The VJ of Select said "I know we don't play O-TOWN very often but we receive a lot of e-mails asking for them."
And from the MTV Europe website : "Great Guests on Select - watch out for
Travis, Pink, Sum 41, Train & O-Town over the next few weeks.
AN EMAIL FROM OUR OVERSEAS FRIEND, DENI
Finally MTV Europe played O-TOWN songs, I still can't believe it.
During the songs that were airing, SMS from people all around Europe were
shown and they all were such as: "O-TOWN!!!!Rocks my world", "Hi MTV
Please play All Or Nothing It is tops" or just "Please play O-TOWN",
"we love O-TOWN". After All Or Nothing started the "interview" in the
SELECT studio. First the VJ said he had never met O-TOWN before and he
had never had the chance to be in the same room at the same time with
them before. He asked the boys how do they feel about the European
tour. Erik said they love it and then Ashley added that it's going to last
like 7 weeks !!! In the VJ's opinion this is great, because there are
a lot of O-TOWN fans in Europe, e-mailing SELECT, wanting to see
their videos, asking questions about them etc. On the question if there is
any particular place they are excited they're gonna be touring to the
boys all answered Ireland and also London, because they had never done
a show there before. The VJ wanted to know something about the show
they actually make and Dan said they are singing live, playing live,
everything is live. Then Erik talked a little "inside story" about the
recording of All Or Nothing. About the new album Ashley said that they
were recently recording songs for it and it'll come out this summer or
this spring. He also added that now they know their voices, they know
who sounds good at what particular part. According to Trevor the tour
with Britney had been a lot of fun, and a great experince, because
they had never performed in front of so many people. About Love Should
Be A Crime - Jacob explained the video is not done yet because the boys
are putting together a lot of home video, from home video cameras.
Ashley added this is probably the last single from their 1st album .
And one more thing about the style about the new album: Dan "Be
surprised!". After that the VJ said they had lots of e-mail and he read only
one e-mail which was "really sweet" in his words - and the author was
Deni from Bulgaria (THIS IS ME). He said "You can see the number of
exclamation marks and how much she is excited about you being in our
studio". Yeah they were many :) And Erik looked at my printed e-mail -
cool "she wants to know if there was one more single from that album
what would it be. She suggested Take Me Under or See You Again from the
LONGSHOT soundtrack So if you did have to release one more single
would you take the advice?" Erik: "I wanna say thanks" Oh My God - he
wants to thank me "because these are songs written by us. Gosh, yeah, thank you" and I was like - I can't beliveve it - thank YOU !!!
O-TOWN were asked to choose a video from SELECT's playlist and their choice
was Blink 182 Stay Together For The Kids . That's all and it was cool!
Thanks Deni for all of your GREAT news and we are so happy that they got to read your eamil!
