So, at long last, I'm announcing three album length projects I'm working, AS WELL AS a date for my next live performance. Let's get to it!
1. DINO HUNTER MD: THE SOUND TRACK.
All the songs for the webseries, Dino Hunter M.D., now remastered, remixed, re-everythinged, with two new bonus songs! Me and the guys at Cannibal Troll were talking about releasing a proper album for some time now, since the closest anyone has ever had to a physical soundtrack was the copies we gave with the DVD at I-Con in the halycon days of this past March. Also, making the video for "Pass The Class" gave way to a better version, since my singing has gotten a lot better, and not under the stress of a deadline.
So this would be out by November on Bandcamp, and talks of physical copies will come as the project nears completion.
2. A TEAM FORTRESS 2 INSPIRED CONCEPT ALBUM (CURRENTLY TITLED "STATUS QUO RADIO")
So after getting a good earful of "The Protomen (Act 1)", and seeing the "American Idiot" musical, this project has been in the works for EASILY the past two years. In fact, my Soundcloud has a few early demos. Go ahead!
The idea came for this really after the first time I played TF2 and started writing my own music: an album where each song would be inspired by each of the different classes. It's finally nearing completion, as it's been on and off for a while.
This one I'll try to have out by January 11th, as part of 2013's State Of The Bastard Address.
3. ACTION BASTARD (A COMPENDIUM OF COMICS BASED ON COMICS)
"Axe Punk" and "Wanderin' Johnny" were just the tip of the iceberg. After NYCC and broadening my horizons a little bit, this will be along the lines of the DHMD soundtrack: what I've already got redone given better equipment and know-how, along with some new songs that have been in the ether for a while, based on Atomic Robo, webcomic Manly Guys Doing Manly Things and more?
This would be coming out around Spring time for PAX East.
Halloween Spooktacular! It's my first house party gig for some friends who are well equipped with video, so you won't have a shitty recording like my Dad is known for.I'm looking for some good Halloween-y type songs to cover, so drop me some suggestions.
HOW IT REALLY WENT DOWN:
RB: OK, I made 400 posts on a blog that hardly anybody reads, what does that get me?
Clerk: Well, for 10 you can get a Chinese Finger Trap, and fox 800,000 you can get a Nintendo Wii!
RB: Just a Wii?
RB: Fuck that, what's over here?
Clerk: Oh, those are just albums that you've already been working on in some capacity that you've finally decided to go ahead with full throttle.
RB: How much?
RB: I'll take three! And that Milky Way bar for 40.
