WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
Back in 2013 we released the full band album "Lost Skeleton Returns". The reception of that project was so great and the response to the music behind the lyrics was just as great. So in the fall of 2013 we decided to release a limited run of "Lost Skeleton Returns Instrumental". When we released the CD each came with an original hand painting by Michale. The response to this set was really great and we sold out in 2 days.
"WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE INSTRUMENTAL"
We released "When Worlds Collide" in January of 2016. It was designed to be a sequel - maybe better said a continuation of Lost Skeleton Returns. Lyrics and vocals were performed by Michale Graves. Michale also played the lead gutiar and bass guitar and the legendary Punk Skateboard drummer Chuck Treece played drums. The instrumentals for each song are unique driving pieces of music in their own right.....so in the spirit of "Lost Skeleton Returns Instrumental" we are releasing "When Worlds Collide Instrumental".
Included on the CD will be instrumental versions of the following songs:
- Dying of Sunday Morning
- I Walk with a Zombie
- Old Dark House
- Robot Monster
- The Beginning of the End
- The Face Behind the Mask
- Things to Come
- 3 Days ‘til Dawn
- When Worlds Collide
Here are some demo's from the album

"WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE" SKATEBOARD
The core pledge on this project is a really cool limited edition set - you will get one signed copy of the "When Worlds Collide Instrumental" plus a signed limited edition skateboard deck featuring the cover artwork from "When Worlds Collide". There will only be 50 CD/board deck sets - each will be signed and numbered with the same number (set 1, set 2 etc). Below is a rough initial picture of the prototype of the board deck (sorry for the glare).
PROJECT AND PLEDGE LEVELS
In addition to the CD/Skateboard sets we will have other pledge levels as well - highlights include;
- A limited quantity of Signed WWCI CD only (no skateboard)

- We will offer a few private performances that we enjoy so much
- One person will have the chance to collaborate on a song with Michale - that will be placed on his next album!
FIRST STRETCH GOAL ANNOUNCED!
We are doing something different this time – announcing the 1st stretch goal right now - we have set a very low initial goal of $2500 for the project. Once we hit that initial goal we will set a stretch goal of $5,000 – if we hit that stretch goal…everyone will get the new and unreleased Camp Scare Away live acoustic performance on DVD! - We recorded this live outdoor campfire performance during Camp Scare Away 2 back in spring. Here is the DVD artwork:
Here is a promo video for the Camp Scare - Away DVD stretch goal award
A WORD ABOUT SHIPPING SKATEBOARDS OUTSIDE THE US
We checked on shipping a 5 pound package outside the US and it is very expensive. We are offering the CD/Skateboard set to everyone - but the shipping outside the US is high because the cost is high.
We create these projects with you in mind...The involvement and interaction of fan’s and supporters is dear to Michale. Whether a new fan or someone who has been there along the way – including fan’s in this project adds the right chemistry to new project.

A NOTE FROM MICHALE
Did someone say skateboard? I'm in!!! We really wanted to release WWCI - the instrumentals for this album are solid and stand alone as pieces of individual music. I am psyched about the idea of creating a limited edition signed set with WWC skateboard deck...Absolutely!!!
