Once upon a time Josh Eppard played drums for Coheed & Cambria.  He toured the world and played to giant crowds, but his heart was always in hip-hop and rocking the mic under his alias Weerd Science.  

He released his debut rap album “Friends & Nervous Breakdowns” in 2005. Later leaving Coheed for personal reasons, Josh went on to write “Sick Kids”, an album about his battle and recovery from heroin addiction.  He has been clean for over a year and wrote the album to serve as a warning about the dangers of drug abuse.

"Sick Kids" is a hip-hop concept CD unlike any other.  We are releasing it independently and need your help!  This campaign will fund the manufacturing of the physical CDs, make spring and summer touring possible and allow us to film the first music video.

We are offering a lot of amazing incentives to our supporters, including a private one hour drum lesson with Josh and the opportunity for Weerd Science to perform a private show for you and your friends.  He and DJ Dirty Ern will even record a track in your basement!

We are appealing to you, the fans, to make this project possible.  Without your help we could not do it.  We thank you for that and are very excited for you to finally hear the album!
