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". 

The new "When Worlds Collide Instrumental" CD
The new "When Worlds Collide Instrumental" CD

Included on the CD will  be instrumental versions of the following songs:

  • Bedlam
  • Diabolical
  • 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).

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:

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.

WHY KICKSTARTER?

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!!!

Risks and challenges

Instrumental projects have a limited very focused audience. We know this is the case so we made this project a limited edition.

    CAMP SCARE-AWAY+SKATEBOARD+MYSTERY FILM

    This will be the 3rd Camp Scare-Away that we have done and the first 2 were incredible! You (and 1 guest if you want) are going camping with Mark and Michale. We are planning this for the first or second week of September 2016 (this may be a weekday so please be aware). We will rent cabins at the Jim Thorpe Camping Resort in the Pocono mountains. These are very rustic cabins - they have wood frame beds and electricity - bathrooms are communal and separate from the cabins. Each person (or couple) will arrive in the afternoon of the date we set, unpack and gather wood for the camp fire. We will then have a BBQ dinner that we will provide and then Michale will play an acoustic set around the campfire.

    WE ARE ADDING A NEW TWIST. We will be filming a short film while at camp….There is a mystery afoot! Mark will write a mystery story and each person will receive their part and dialogue (in advance) – but each person will only get their part - not the entire script. In this way the story (and ending) will be a surprise to all. We will then create a short film and place it on Facebook for the world to see. Each person will receive scene credit as an actor. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO ACT - NO WORRIES - if you want to join us at camp but not participate in the film - that is totally cool!

    We will then break camp in the early am. You will receive a signed copy of "When Worlds Collide Instrumental" and SIGNED SKATEBOARD as well. Those pledging this level will provide their own transportation to and from the event. Dinner and cabin provided with the pledge level.

    If you are interested in more than one pledge level just message us and we will make sure you get whatever you are interested in via pledges.
