Photo Finish recording group The Downtown Fiction has announced the release of their hugely anticipated debut album.  “LET’S BE ANIMALS” arrives in stores and at all DSPs this spring.

In the meantime, pre-orders for the album will be available beginning this Friday, March 4th.  Among the exclusive extras on offer will be a limited edition T-shirt, a “LET’S BE ANIMALS” necklace, and “LET’S BE ANIMALS” glow-in-the-dark wristbands.

The Fairfax, Virginia-based pop-rock trio will celebrate the album’s arrival with a major US headline tour.  The “Let’s Be Animals Tour 2011” will kick off on April 19th at The Firebird in St. Louis and then travel the country through mid-May.  Accompanying The Downtown Fiction on all dates will be He Is We, Cady Groves, and Amely.  Enhanced VIP Ticket Bundles are available now for pre-order, including a general admission ticket, a signed poster, exclusive access to the band’s soundcheck (as well as a meet-and-greet party), and a pre-order of the upcoming “LET’S BE ANIMALS” album. The Downtown Fiction is also among the acts performing on the main stage at The Bamboozle 2011, slated for May 1stat the New Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

As if all that weren’t enough, The Downtown Fiction recently embarked on “The Glamour Kills Tour,” featuring The Ready Set, Allstar Weekend, and We Are The In Crowd.  The multi-artist bill is set to travel the US through early April.
