Such safety finds us trembling lambs environed by wolves, the time has arrived and DEAD BEAT finally rises. My debut album from my solo project Rufus Rex is finally complete and ready to be unleashed onto an unsuspecting world. The album is a concept about one man’s quest for immorality and the strange world he discovers after awakening a terrible evil older the time itself. It was a story I was trying to turn into a horror screenplay some years back, but it just wasn’t working, so I decided to try it in album form. In the meantime, I also adapted it into comic book form, so if all goes well, you’ll be seeing the DEAD COMIC book sometime early next year.
The official release date of DEAD BEAT is October 11th, but you can pre-order it today using the Paypal links below or through snail mail. All pre-orders will ship out the first week of October, so you can get it into your Halloween playlists well ahead of schedule. I’ve spent the last two years stealing fragments of time to make this album and I’ll be releasing it entirely independent through my newly formed Villains And Vaudevillians record label. This means the I will not be releasing it in stores, you’ll only be able to purchase the physical copies from me directly and then It will be on all the online digital services (Itunes, Amazon, Etc) by the release date of October 11th.
If you like what you hear so far from this project, please help support my music and purchase the album directly from me. I have put all of my stone-encased heart, blackened soul, and money into this album and you guys hold its fate in your hands. All proceeds from this album go towards the recording of the next Rufus Rex album and coffee to keep me awake through the whole process.

It’s entitled From The Dust Returned A Titan and it describes the impending sense of doom as the world shudders in the arrival of the beast that no longer sleeps.
