Since our last studio album Soft Time Traveler, our diverse and growing band family has been making music, theatre, and visual art to fight for love, tentacles and the SteamCRUNK way. We’ve formed an eccentric and inclusive community of misfits who have been working hard putting out FREE MUSIC (at least one free album every year!), staging EPIC SHOWS and doing AWESOME THEATRE of which all of you have been an integral part! We don’t just perform for you, we perform on you, in you, with you! You make the spells come to breathe, our enchantments brought to the steam-ether.
Scheduled for March 2016 release, Come Black Magic is the 3rd studio album from the ever-creative and strange collective minds of Walter Sickert and his Army of Broken Toys (who contributed their track Sea Song to first volume of Boston Not LA, among other things).
Although the album is still few months away, there are plenty of glimpses of what is to come – Kickstarter campaign for the album, plus hand-drawn video for Where’s Your Ghost?, a psychedelic, melanchology-tinged and somewhat sinister number that devolves into cacophony towards its end (see Worcester Telegram review of the single for more details).
Another peculiar item from the Kickstarter campaign is an introduction by professor Humungulos Langdeeuk, an expert in the occult streamcrunk sciences. See the video below in order to hear professor Langdeeuk explaining what you can do in order to help Come Black Magic escape from its virtual prison (and save the band while you’re at it).
