New Kingbastard Ep! (available Now) Apr. 28th, 2009 @ 11:10 AM Reply

Hellooo, before I get started with promo spiel I just wanted to say that I've asked Rucklo permisson to start this thread and he kindly agreed, cheers Ruckie:)

NEW EP RELEASED (27-04-09) 'TIED UP TO MACHINES'

You can download a trk from my EP for free here at Newgrounds just click this link and it'll take you to the Song page: 1M4G7RGUY

Chris Weeks returns once again as Kingbastard, with a stunning new EP that has style, melody and deft production skills in abundance, delivering a sound that's exciting, fresh and at times mind boggling; Crunchy electronics and quirky synthpop melodies are expertly woven together with retro glitchy flashbacks to the 80's. Comparisons have been made with contemporary artists Thom Yorke, Aphex Twin & The Flashbulb but his imaginative union of playful melodies, harsh electronics, live instrumentation/vocals and darkly ethereal ambience sees him looking out from a plateau all of his own.
(Herb Recordings)

Tracklisting:
1. BOOMBOX
2. F47G4M3R
3. THE CAPTCHA
4. 4M813N7RK
5. THE SECRET LIFE OF MACHINES
6. 1M4GTRGUY
7. SAY WHEN

Available now @ Boomkat, iTunes & all good digital download stores.

Enjoy and hope I don't piss anyone off too much with this shameless self-promotion, but hey, I'm a struggling music maker so I have to do all I can to get attention:)

I was speaking with Tom about my album and was no problem with that.
A thing that you should arrange is with record label and distributors, to have their agreement over distributing album on NG.
I arranged also that with the record label I'm signed, they sent me several CD's for me to send to NG store (I know, kind of many trips... eh well...) and now I'm waiting for almost two weeks (f@#ing crappy postal service).

this music is filled up with <3

if you haven't heard this bastards music, i strongly suggest you at least go check out what he have uploaded right here on NG. When you've done that, you'll be sold, and simply must buy his stuff.

its true, im an addict :(

it would kick extra ass if there would be KB-CD's for sale via NG store!!! TOM, YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO!!! :D

Track 6 is oddly resembles my user name

'1M4G7RGUY' ~ = RyeGuy(Head)

"I am for (?) RyeGuy"

How did you come up with the titles for that track, "4M813N7RK" and "F47G4M3R"? I am sure there is a method to your madness and I am quite intrigued...

(I know the world doesn't revolve around me but if you believe it does you feel much more important)

I'll be reviewing the song shortly, once i grab my headphones :D


just you wait

I basically bastardized a form of Leet Speak. I was at the time being frustrated by Captchas, you know, those annoying little word and number codes you have to fill in to login to certain sites; I took influence from them to create a few trk names for the EP.

1M4G7RGUY = IM A GUITAR GUY
4M813N7RK = AMBIENT TRACK
F47G4M3R = FAT GAMER

so you can kinda see my loose logic working there:)

I'm not trying to be a sarcastic dick or anything but i'm just trying to get the rules straight. If I get a release i can make a thread about it rather than put it in the audio advertisement thread?

Actually it's normal that NG forum regulars to make threads about BIG events, like having an album out(I'm talking about getting signed to a record label not self producing).
This can actually make the other artists to take more serious their job and help Newgrounds to get more prestigious.

FFS I wish I could use PayPal in the store :( I want some NG Merch, and I'd definitely get in on this action. Congratulations, man. I guess I have another reason to go get a credit card now :P

I start out using a lightweight printing paper that I attack with various colour inks, this paper is great as it's very thin and soaks up inks nicely so they run and bleed creating completely unique patterns and colours. I then draw on top of those coloured inks with permanent markers, black inks, paint pens etc.. I also attached other media, such as pages from my sketchbooks, printouts of letters and numbers, ... then I rip it all up and manipulate it onto a canvas using pva woodglue to stick it all down and layer it, which sets nice hard and clear giving a cool glossy finish and protection.
I then scanned that canvas in and took certain sections of it for the artwork of the CD. Tarting up the colours a little to make it more striking. There's a few examples of my canvases on my website or my other artwork on myspace.
Here's a pic of the original framed canvas I took the artwork from... :)
