t.A.T.u.’s first performance in Dubai, UAE was a success, their set list included newest single “White Robe” (debuted at UCSB). Below is the video of the performance, thanks to Fofo (tatu.ru/forum) and Adruz (youtube.com). The video of performance “Ne Zhaley” is also available here.
So when is the new album being released? Lena: We have two coming out this year: Upravleniye Otbrosami, in Russian, and Waste Management in English. Like I said the Russian album may be released in spring. The English album has a while to go. I think it will be released in the autumn. Before then we’re going to release the uncensored version of the video White Robe. It will be even more explicit.
Guys, all the talks about hyperion-plate hitting the stores on Monday or Tuesday are speculations. In fact, we’re not releasing it even by the end of March (I’ve imagined this tornado of hatred that will drop upon Boris Renski’s head after these words… well, he’ll deal with it, he’s not a kid).
In the nearest time we’ll give the exact dates of the following events:
- hyperion-plate release date - 220 radio premiere - 220 video premiere - Upravleniye Otbrosami release date
I swear it all will happen soon - not later, than December, 31. JUST KIDDING.
Speaking seriously, though, we’re adding such a surprise to the hyprion-plate that… you’ll forgive everything.

And a new version of the site is in process. We’ve designed something unlike any thing we’ve ever done before. We’ve gotten much done in the past week, but there are still things to add, edit and upload before the new version is completed. I don’t have an estimate date for when it will be up, but it will be as soon as possible.
A new header has also been made for the forum, but we’ve encountered some errors in the forum’s template coding at the moment, which we will be sorting out as soon as possible. When the new layout is completed, it will be set as the default for the forum, and an update will be posted on the site by its creator, svEn (Angie).
We’ll keep you updated. Thanks for visiting.
