“(don’t fear the) NINJA” – the first single from Uncle Monsterface’s forthcoming full-length album, RISE of the LAVA MEN, will be available for free via bandcamp Monday, August 15, 2012! AND, if you want MORE new Monsterface, you can purchase the single for a $1 and get the EXCLUSIVE BONUS track, “This Is (STILL) An Adventure”, the full band punk rock version of Uncle Monsterface’s title track from our LAST full length album (from…um…2008).
“(don’t fear the) NINJA” is the first all-new song from Uncle Monsterface in five years. RISE of the LAVA MEN is a conceptual Rock Project (forthcoming full length album, Saturday Morning cartoon show, archaeological dig, and related puppet portraits) telling the tale of the ancient iconic protector’s of Uncle Monsterface’s home-base, Dino-skeleton Island. As Uncle Monsterface unearths records and remnants from the archeological dig that is currently uncovering the tale of the Lava Men, Monsterface Industries will release new songs, artworks and biographies for each of the Lava Men!

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.
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
And always remember – you DON’T have to be on the Myspace to check out the profile OR to download the song, just go to the url:
But if you ARE on Myspace, become his friend, become friends with lots of them, check out their growing world!
It helps me out…
And let me know what you think and tell your friends and leave him comments and stuff!
Again, sorry for the multi-mails, I promise not to make too much of a habit of it, and it’s for a good cause.
Okay and yay,
no, not PUPPY video… TEAM!
today is monday. all of the time, ‘monday’ shares it’s first three letters in common with ‘monsterface’ (and MONKEY!). often this inspires us to post a: MONsterface MONday (ook eek!)
in honor of our tour that starts NEXT WEEK IN BOSTON (june 25 at the middle east!!), here is a video for the new song from THIS IS AN ADVENTURE called GO!, which we’ll be playing at said rock shows!
“This album lifts you up and makes you feel powerful.”
-james kochalka on uncle monsterface’s ‘this is an adventure’
woaahhhhhhhh! today’s monsterface monday is AN INCREDIBLE VIDEO for the title track of the new album, “This is an Adventure!” go get it on our Youtube channel – youtube.com/unclemonsterface (if it is’t embedding right here)
it features the beautiful album artwork created by our good friend, daria tessler – animalsleepstories.com, with animation by none other than our own resident super-talent, Perfect Jimmy. check out daria’s whole site! she’s such a unique talent, her work is like no one else’s, if you like the album art you’ll become obsessed with all that she does (she and marty met both selling art on the streets of ny!)
so: we’ve gotten hundreds of downloads from last week’s album drop! lots of them have lead to awesome reviews… but we definitely don’t have hundreds of reviews, thoughts, and/or musings yet (though there have been many, and thanks to everyone who has made good on their word). make good on your word, citizenry! in honor of last week’s Monsterface Monday (MoMo) of such grand proportions, we’re leaving it up for one more day – today – until midnight.
while you have one more day to download and you’re soaking in the splendor of this video and readying yourself for your OWN mighty review, check out these awesome reviews from last week!
super crazy cool = as seen above – the incomparable and legendary james kochalka gave us an amazing review on his own americanelf.com. he’s one of our superheroes of life, if you don’t already marvel at everything he creates, please do so immediately.
and once again, z from hipsterplease.com hits our album so squarely on the head it hurts. our collective head. hurts. z rules.
while we have your attention, on a completely unrelated note, please become our facebook friend if you do that sort of thing. we had an old acct that wasn’t a band account and then had to change it all over and stuff… www.facebook.com/pages/Uncle-Monsterface/7925207825
next week we’ve got one more amazing monsterface monday in store for you!
then there will be a week off as we hit the road – and then PERFECT JIMMY GONE WILD will premiere on july 9 – perfect jimmy’s own weekly webcast wrapping up the week’s unlimited enthusiasm events…and whatever else he comes up with…(unlimited enthusiasm, ltd takes no responsibility for resulting lawsuits, catastrophes, or fits of weeping ‘perfect jimmy gone wild’ creates, inspires, or induces).
awesome + awesome = team monsterface
never stop a’rockin.
