about

Here it is, "Forced Shock Humor." We started this band following the demises of Jewel Eye and the Uncommonly Good. Our first few shows were spent, more or less, playing a few improv jams and one ACTUAL song, "Ha! Ha! Ha!" Eventually we realized we needed more than one song to survive as a band, so we wrote some new ones. The songs that were written, as well as a few GPP tunes (another band that featured Ken and Dylan in it), are what make up this album.

If you're expecting something that sounds like any band that members have previously been in, then this album isn't for you. With the help of Studio Master Chuck, we've created something that will hopefully make even the great Danny DeVito proud of us. He's all we actually care to please, honestly. Anyone else who digs this is cool too, I suppose.

By buying the digital copy of this album on bandcamp, you are guaranteed a cassette copy when they come out via Durry Dog Tapes. Cassette copies will include a bonus track on them as well, cuz we know you need as much Altered Cross as you can have in your life! Contact us via Facebook if you do purchase, so we can make sure you are secured a cassette.
