Eureka Machines announce new album details and tour!

Those poptastic rascals, The Eureka Machines have announced details of their new album and tour dates. So here in their own words are those details:
Well, it's about time we told you our plans for the rest of the year. We're putting out our new album, which we call Champion The Underdog, on May 2nd. It will be out through Wrath Records again, and it is the best thing that any of us have ever done. It will be preceded by a new single, another snappily monikered tune called (I'm) Wasting My Time (Yet Again). You may recognise it from the gigs as The One With The Uptown Girl Bit. We're filming a video for it at the moment and it's suitably amusing.

The tracklisting for the record is thus:

Champion The Underdog
These Are The People Who Live In My House
(I'm) Wasting My Time (Yet Again)
Godot's Arrived
Professional Crastinator
Everything's Fine
The Best Night Of My Life
Beginning Of The End Of The World
Zero Hero
A Ballad To Finish

It was produced by Jase Edwards and Chris Catalyst and made across about six different studios at various times across the land. The cover artwork was shot by evil genius Tom Martin. Please, if it's the last thing you ever do for us, tell your friends, get people excited, spread the word, it would be a terrible shame if the past eighteen months of our hard labour was to disappear unnoticed.

We're doing some gigs so you can come and see us and maybe buy it and all that. Of course, it'll be available online before that, so keep checking back. The dates confirmed so far are:
