Although the Metro billed them as "Ceasars," the band spelled their name on the their bass drum as "Cæsars," and their U.S. label spells it "Caesars." Whatever you want to call the band formerly known as Twelve Caesars, they are finally releasing their second U.S. album. 39 Minutes of Bliss (In An Otherwise Meaningless World) comes out April 22 on Astralwerks. And I can only guess that they changed their name because clubs feared they couldn't fit them all on stage; Ben Folds Five is still a manageable number of musicians, and 10,000 Maniacs is clearly an overstatement. But there are only five Caesars.
