THE HOUSE OF MYTH: New Creature Feature Single Will Be Released On Friday 3/18/11!

Hello fiends,

I just wanted to announce that this Friday (3/18/11) at 5:00pm Pacific Time, Creature Feature will be releasing a brand new single entitled “The House Of Myth” for streaming and download on our official Bandcamp page. There you will be able to listen to the song in its entirety and have the ability to download it in the highest quality available for the standard single price of $1.29.

Just a single, then when’s the next album finally coming out?

Well, here is where I am trying a little experiment and let me clue you in to the future of Creature Feature, my company Villains And Vaudevillians, & my solo music project Rufus Rex. In the past few years the music industry has changed drastically and I’ve decided to forge my own path ahead and start my own record label under the “Villains & Vaudevillians” banner. Which means I will be self releasing the next Creature Feature single and my upcoming Rufus Rex album entitled Dead Beat.

What does this really mean?

Well, it means that I have some great future plans for Creature Feature & Rufus Rex, but they all rely on the release of our new upcoming singles. So, here is where you guys come in. Creature Feature would like nothing more than to just release new music as they record it with no long waits in-between. If enough people purchase the new single directly from our Bandcamp page, then our little experiment is successful and you will be getting a brand new Creature Feature song every single month for as long as we can inhumanly keep it up.

If you would like to hear new music every single month from Creature Feature, please check back this Friday (3/18/11) at 5:00pm Pacific Time to purchase and download our song, then tell all your friends to do the same, and help spread the word on your Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Blog, Tumblr, and any other website you use to share your thoughts.

If all goes well, we’ll be premiering a brand new Creature Feature song on the 13th of every month. Click the banner below to go to our official Bandcamp page:

Thanks again for all your ongoing support an stay weird,

Death Is Just The Beginning!

Hello fiends,

I’m finally back from the dead to let you know that my debut album from my solo band “Rufus Rex” is just about finished and it is a Lovecraftian concept album about one man’s quest to reanimate the dead and free the human race from the curse of morality, only to be met with dire consequences and bloody revelations. I’ll be filling you in with more info in the weeks to come, but I thought I would drop by and give you a quick update. The name of the album is “Dead Beat” and here is the cover artwork by the amazing Thomas Boatwright.

If you click the artwork above you’ll be magically whisked away to my other website www.rufusrex.com where you can hear a very short clip of the intro music to the first song I will be releasing later this month.

I also wanted to thank all you fiends for the ongoing support of my music and all my other strange projects. Soon you’ll have some much new music, your ears will bleed.

Stay weird,
~Curtis Rx

Brand New CREATURE FEATURE Aim For The Head T-shirt!

Hello fiends,

I’m pleased to announce the brand new Creature Feature “Aim For The Head” T-shirt just in time for X-mas. It depicts an oddly familiar sideburn adorned survivor of the zombie apocalypse who has to make the difficult choice when disaster strikes and 99% of the world’s population, his family, & even his best friend acquire a blood thirsty appetite for warm flesh—but what is to become of the twice dead corpses after they have been “put down”? They will be will stuffed and mounted in the zombie hunter’s library as trophies, just as any self respecting hunter would.

“He used to be your friend, that was another life. With a single bullet, we’re gonna blow his mind”.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a pre-order and the the shirt will be shipping the week of December 20th and because of the holiday post office rush we can’t guarantee that you’ll get these in time for X-mas.

Behold The Glory Of The Walking Dead!

Hey fiends,

I’ve pretty much given up on zombie films in the last few years, but finally there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon with Frank Darabont’s ‘The Walking Dead’. The hour-and-a-half premiere episode airs at 10pm on Halloween night. Check out the trailer below and keep a eye open for the skeletal female zombie wallowing around on the grass, definitely the best practical zombie makeup in years.

What did you guys think, could we finally have some decent zombie action shambling down the turnpike in search of fresh meat?

It depicts a brave, but clueless vampire hunter who, after an unfortunate misunderstanding, tries to vanquish his bloodsucking foe with a t-bone steak instead of the time-honored wooden stake.

Night Of The Living UPDATE!

Hello fiends,

It’s been a long time since I wrote an actual blog and gave everybody an official update on what’s going on in my world, the world of Creature Feature, and my upcoming solo album. Most of you by now have heard about this ‘Rufus Rex’ album I’ve been talking about lately and I wanted to take some time to tell you a little but about it. ‘Rufus Rex’ is the name of my solo project that I’ve had for many, many years and it’s something I had always planned to bring to fruition, but just never had the time. I’ve recorded a ton of demos and played a few shows under that name, but just never had the chance to do anything with it. Anytime I would write a song that didn’t fit with the Creature Feature sound we created or any other project I was working on at the time, I would throw it in a pile, call it ‘Rufus Rex’, and there it would sit, staring at me, slowly planning my vengeful demise, until I finally succumbed to the threats on my life and decided to buckle down and record an actual album. I tend to write songs as if they are short stories, so with this album I wanted to go one step further and make it a guitar heavy, rock, concept album that tells a strange little story about archeology in the early 1900′s, the accidental awakening of slumbering evil, the quest for re-animation, madness, and the end of the world. It’s a huge story that spans over 100 years that I originally write as a film script, but decided that it would be fun to try to tell the story as an album instead (not to mention a lot cheaper), but I do have plans to turn the story into a comic book in the future and fill in all the areas of the story not touched on by the album, but first things first.

I have just a few more weeks of tweaking, sound effects, and overall obsessive tinkering until the album is finished, but in the mean time I will be releasing the first single entitled ‘Dead Air’ sometime here in the next few weeks as a free download and as a special thank you for all the people who have waited patiently for new music. The song ‘Dead Air’ is the second to last song on the album and is about the last man living in the world of the dead, constantly searching through the airwaves for any sign of life, and watching helplessly as nature reclaims the empty cities. I’m sure a lot will change in the days to come as I forge ahead on this album, but as most labors of love, blood must be shed.

Have no fear, after this album is wrapped up, Creature Feature goes back into full swing on our next album about equally ghoulish and wonderful things. All those who downloaded our new (and FREE) song ‘Grave Robber At Large’ got a taste of things to come and when we’re done, they’ll have to scrap you off the walls.

I also have a few other irons in the fire that I’m very excited about, I’ve co-written a horror anthology webseries and have just begun to shop around my recently completed full-length horror film script about discount dentistry, polished bones, and hereditary evil (although if I would have just written a re-make, it would have been filmed already). Hopefully I’ll have more news on these projects shortly as well.

I wanted to take a second to thank everybody for their ongoing support, e-mails, messages, comments, films suggestions, and for swinging by my Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, etc. I do my best to update daily and answer every post, all while trying not to spill coffee on my laptop, which I did last week and the screen now looks like it has a two-dollar spray tan.

Until we meet again,
~Curtis Rx

PS,

Ancient name whispered in the darkness
Lost words spoke from chattering teeth
Bloody runes forbode the arrival
Of a beast that no longer sleeps

Brand New Creature Feature Song Grave Robber At Large Available As A Free Download!

Hello fiends,

We just posted our brand new song ‘Grave Robber At Large’ on our player and uploaded it to our Bandcamp account as a free download. So please download the song, tell your friends about it, e-mail about it, tweet about it, send your friends the link, etc. Just click the banner below to be magically whisked away to our fancy Bandcamp page where you can download the ‘Grave Robber At Large’ free of charge (yes, that was meant to rhyme).

Here is some background on the new track:

Drastic times call for drastic measures and as the dire doldrums of the 19th century set in, a new type of business opportunity presents itself to an enterprising few. Sickness ravages the streets, Modern medicine lingers in its infancy, and the human body still remains a mystery. When all is lost, sometimes the only way for a civilization to forge ahead, is to act uncivilized. Experiments must be executed, dissections must be conducted, answers must be found, but most of all, test subjects must be procured. The work of a grave robber is ghastly and dangerous indeed, but if you toss your conscious into the wind there are untold riches to be made from the recent deceased.

Hope all is well,
~Curtis Rx
