London-based Absentee returns with its new album, Victory Shorts, available in the United States of America on ol' election day, November 4th, 2008. The record sees release on Memphis Industries (current or former home to The Go! Team, The Pipettes, The Ruby Suns, and more). Tackling themes of premature marriage proposals, adultery, lost property, love, and broken crockery:
"Victory Shorts is an assured, confident, and quite often brilliant album by a band that is clearly influenced by the past but never falls prey to easy nostalgia." Tim Sendra - All Music Guide
