TOO MUCH AWESOME TO TAKE!

“(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! Who will be next?

With awesome and iconic illustrations by infehnite design’s Jeremy Murphy (http://infehnitedesign.com/) and awesome-sauce
logos by Monsterface’s own, Epic Eric Swanson (also of The Fencing and Archery printing company) the excitement has just begun!

Help us out and spread the word!

The Rise of the Lava Men has begun!

We are told that the show starts at 8sharp, as muzak must stop by midnight. We are also told that we are on 3rd, before those spazzy math-starz.

Because Facebook is sorta dumb in a lot of ways, there are two event pages, one set up by F-nice, the other by Math. Maybe we should do one, too?! Kooky Facebook. Anyways, make sure you tell it everything that you are doing in triplicate, or you will lose your life-license.

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

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

rock music page updated!

I just updated the “rock music” page here at UMF central. You can listen to all three of our albums (in their entirety) right from the interweb! Now you can always get your monsterface fix when you need it… if you have electricity and internet access and some decent speakers (or maybe one of those fancy iphoney shiny things.)
