WHERE IT BEGAN - "LOST SKELETON RETURNS" - 2013

In January 2013 - the earth moved....Michale Graves,for the first time since leaving the iconic Horror Punk band The Misfits, re-entered the Monster Rock category that he help to re-define with the release of his best selling CD "Lost Skeleton Returns". After 12 years Graves had rediscovered his roots and created one of the best Monster Rock albums ever. Including his classics the album included classics from his "Punk Rock is Dead" album along with 4 brand we songs that have since become fan favorites including "Zombie", Something Wicked", Night of the Living Dead", "Forbidden Planet", "Last Man of Earth" and the title song "Lost Skeleton". 

THE SEQUEL - "WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE"

After 2 years and several CD's released including "Wanderer", "Supernatural", "Zombies Unite" and others, Graves has decided its time............time to create the sequel to "LSR"....titled "When Worlds Collide". Inspired by the classic 1952 sci-fi film, "When Worlds Collide" will feature 10+ brand new full band monster rock songs. 

The vibe of this album is raw pure Graves. Working titles for songs on the album include:

- "When Worlds Collide"

- "Diabolical'

- "Things to Come"

- "Bedlam" 

- "Dying on Sunday Morning"

- "Old Dark House"

- "Beginning of the End"

- "Dead of Night"

Even though we are early in the project - below are some demo clips of songs we are working on:

- "When Worlds Collide"

- "Monster"

- "Bedlam"

- Diabolical 

- "Things to Come"

THE MOST IMPORTANT SONG ON THE ALBUM - "Dying on Sunday Morning" - the sequel to "Crying on Saturday Night"

At the center piece of the new album, Michale has decided after 20 years, to write the sequel to his iconic song "Crying on Saturday Night". Picking up at the end of the song, and using the story line that he created for the original, "Dying on Sunday Morning" extends the tale and creates a modern classic! WE WILL ALSO BE CREATING A MUSIC VIDEO FOR THIS SONG AS WELL,

LIMITED RELEASED CD

We have set the goal to support the scope of this project and we will include several pledge levels for this project including:

Copies of the “When Worlds Collide” CD

Signed copies of the “When Worlds Collide” CD

There will be a pledge level where Michale creates a piece of original 11 by 17 horror artwork just for you.

We are filming a music video for "Dying on Sunday Morning" and you can be in the music video.

"Camp Scare-a-way" experience where you go camping in cabins with Michale and Mark.

Being true to the origin of all of our Kickstarter projects we are offering a few in-home performance events where Michale performs in person for you. 

We also have added the ability to have your voice on one of the songs on the album.

For the first time ever we are offering the ability for someone to serve as an active Producer of the album.

We are offering the ability for Michale to play at your wedding! 

And finally we are offering one pledge to have Michale and the full band for Halloween 2016!

A NOTE FROM MICHALE

I have been thinking about this project for over a year. The opportunity to create a sequel to "Lost Skeleton Returns" is incredibly exciting and taking on the creation of the sequel to "Crying on Saturday Night" is beyond cool!!!

Risks and challenges

1) We understand that creating a sequel has a huge challenge as it will be compared to the prequel. We feel very confident, after 10 projects that this project will be very well received based on fan requests.
