About

Hello all you crazy cats! 

We're reaching out to you to see if you can help us achieve our dreams of making a mega-super-fantgasmic music video for our song "Dead Man". 

Our previous music video was completed thanks to the help of some good friends lending us a hand. We paid for the video with a 6 pack of beer and a dozen buffalo wings. We wanted to make our second music video with a slightly bigger budget :D

We've hired a professional video team, a make up artist, and we're shooting at three locations. Here's the breakdown of what our expenses are. 

  • $2000 to hire the AKCM Production team
  • $250 for make-up and body painting by Joyful Canvas
  • $150 for wardrobe and props
  • $200 for Prava Studios to remaster and mix Dead Man 

Check out the AKCM Production 2014 reel to see why we full heartily trust them to make this video the best it can really be.

Jelly Jams Vol. 1 is a collection of 11 jams Medusa's Disco recorded over the year of 2014. 

Live at the Be-In was recorded in York in 2014. the download contains 6 songs performed live.

Songs on this Album :

Unlockable character in the upcoming Medusa's Disco video game

Deep underground in medusa's lair, we've been developing a web game that has all the band members in it. You get to become an unlock-able character!  You also get all digital downloads, an early beta-access to the Medusa's Disco video game, a VIP ticket to the video premiere at Zoetropolis (must provide own transportation) ,a signed copy of Forked Tongue Fables and The Prava Sessions with 10 Medusa's Disco stickers!

And this comes with a giant bundle of hugs from the band members for believing in us this much :D

Medusa's Disco is a psychedelic rock band based out of Lancaster, PA. We have been playing together for over 3 years and in that time have released 4 albums, and one music video. You can see our old video below.

Our latest full studio album, "Forked Tongue Fables" has received a lot of good praise. With that in mind, we want to awaken the visuals we've seen in our heads for "Dead Man" and share them with all of you. 

We have booked a local Lancaster movie theatre to release the music video on November 20th, 2015. We will have a showing of the video at Zoetropolis along with our single release for our acoustic album "New Animal". 

We have submitted some B-roll of our first day of shooting into a 1 min film festival Zoetropolis is having. Watch the silly clip below to see some of the footage being captured by the amazing AKCM productions team. Be sure the music video will have a more serious tone than this clip!

Prava Studios is a fantastic recording studio and record label based in New Holland PA. We previously recorded a live album for The Prava Sessions there and loved working with their team of producers and engineers. We can't wait to hear how they remix and remaster "Dead Man".You can watch our episode of The Prava Sessions below

 We need as much exposure as possible! Easiest way to help is to share the image below and post it on any or all of your social networks. You can use the hashtag #deadmanmovie in your post.

Thanks for all of your support and we can't wait to make this music video!!

Risks and challenges

We have already started shooting one day and everything went smooth as butter. After the video is complete we plan on having a release party on November 20th. The only issue we could see is if a shooting day is rained out. We would then just reschedule the shoot. The release date for the video may also be pushed back if production is pushed back.
