RISE of the LAVA MEN Kickstarter is here!

Here we are, live from the dig site at:
Go check out our awesome video and see all the cool rewards you can get! We’ll also be adding some special rewards throughout the month!

If you are new to the notion of Kickstarter, it’s a site designed to “crowd fund” creative projects. Folks like us ask for your support, and you get cool and exclusive stuff for supporting us. Check it out! The real crux is that, if we don’t get fully funded, we don’t get nuthin! It’s an all-in proposition!

Uncle Monsterface’s “RISE of the LAVA MEN” has been in the works for more than two years, and we are thrilled to be this close to finally bringing it to you, but we really need your help to bring it all the way home.

This concept album and archaeological dig tells the tale of the ancient protectors of Uncle Monsterface’s present day mysterious homebase, Dinoskeleton Island, as unearthed in a cave that Dan and Marty fell into.

We’ll be updating the Kickstarter with special one-of-a-kind and individual band member-centric rewards throughout the 30 days as we reach towards our goal.

Look forward to updates on both Monsterface Mondays as well as One-of-a-kind Wednesdays!

Dan and Marty make a friend at the bar.

okay, so, on a monday night about a week ago, dan and marty were at the bar we live next to (a place we’re often wont to be…perhaps a little TOO wont), when our friend abraham the bearded bartender introduced us to a nice young man named ino. it soon came to light that ino also wrote songs, and before we knew it, abraham had witnessed a ‘monsterface industries’-sponsored contract between ino and marty/dan stating that, before 8pm the following day, ino would make a song for us, and we would make a song for him.

that’s just how we roll.

so here’s ours:
Ino’s Theme by Dan & Marty

and here is the one ino made for us: (its pretty sweet)
Dan and Marty by Ino (aka Skeleton Fingers)

by the way, think of this as ‘monsterface minus jimmy’ (cuz he had to work. also known as ‘star-shirted guy the band’. also known as ‘hey where are the cool keyboard/trombone/harmony parts?, the band’). but the sweet lady-pipes you hear are none other than superstar jocelyn mackenzie (of pearl and the beard, hooray)

also by the way, we’re doing a ton of crazy stuff right now, and more on that very soon.

but this was fun and we wanted to share

ever your semi-loyal,
star-shirted guy the bandface
