WHERE IT BEGIN - "WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE"

For 2 years we worked on a sequel to "Lost Skeleton Returns"...and we released "When Worlds Collide" in January of 2016....11 new monster rock songs including a continuation song that was inspired by Michale's classic "Crying on Saturday Night".....some say "When Worlds Collide" is Michale's best album ever! 

After we originally released "Lost Skeleton Returns" we created the worlds first Monster Acoustic album "Supernatural". We felt that "Supernatural" took the LSR songs and created a truly unique vibe - transforming each song into a new experience for the listener. In that same vein we are now creating a monster acoustic version of the "When Worlds Collide" project. 

"BEDLAM" LIMITED RELEASE CD

The "Bedlam" project includes the original songs from "When Worlds Collide" performed in a distinct monster acoustic style. Included on the CD:

  • When Worlds Collide
  • 3 Days ‘til Dawn
  • Things to Come
  • The Face Behind the Mask
  • The Beginning of the End
  • Robot Monster
  • Old Dark House
  • I Walk with a Zombie
  • Feels Like I'm Dying
  • Diabolical
  • Bedlam

10 of these songs were included on "When Worlds Collide" but we also have added a new take on "Dying on Sunday Morning" and have added the new song "Feels Like I'm Dying" to the "Bedlam" song list. This song will be one of two songs done with piano and it will be very special.

Demo Song Clips

It's early in the process but here are a few working clips for a few of the songs:

3 Days 'Til Dawn

 Old Dark House

 I Walk With A Zombie

 The new song "Feels Like I'm Dying"

 "Bedlam"

A NOTE FROM MICHALE

I am so incredibly excited about the "Bedlam" project. Taking the challenge of creating a unique sound was an absolute pleasure to do - and I think what we will produce with "Bedlam" will be something we will all enjoy! 

Risks and challenges

We understand that creating an acoustic version of a full band album could be risky. This is our 5th "full band to acoustic" project and 3rd "Monster Acoustic" CD and we feel that we have worked out all elements needed to be successful.

    CAMP SCARE-A-WAY - Now here is a dramatically cool pledge level. You will be going camping with Michale and Mark. We will rent rustic cabins at the Jim Thorpe Camping Resort in the Pocono mountains outside Jim Thorpe PA. Each person (or couple) will have their own cabin. We will arrive mid afternoon and settle in. We will rustle up some grub for dinner outdoors and chat around until dusk....then Michale will sing an acoustic set outdoors... We will break camp the next morning. With the pledge you will get the cabin and dinner - you provide travel and bedding. The cabins have beds and electricity - that's about it (see the pics). We are opening this to 3 pledges only (one pledge is good for 1 or 2 people because the cabin costs us the same either way) and plan on having the event during the weekday in May or June 2016. You will also get a signed copy of "Bedlam" – and awesome memories.
