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

    *sniff* This brings happiness to my soul- so much that I cannot avoid sounding like a sappy fool. May your dreams never crumble.
    Oh, and next time your laptop begs you for coffee, kindly remind it that it has no orifice with which to take in the precious liquid without dying and that it should not be so selfish as to try to deplete you of the thing that blesses us with your presence in this realm. Or give it a firm scolding; whichever works.

    I’m so fucking excited for this, it’ll be the first album I’ve actually gone out and bought instead of waiting for someone to put it on limewire

  9. Awesome! Can’t wait!
    “Grave Robber At Large” is amazing<3 I can't tell you how hard it is, knowing that you're in the lab creating your amazing music, and I'm here, sitting at home, eagerly waiting, day after day. X_X
    I know "Rufus Rex" will be amazing (have I used that word already?), too =)

    Im so excited for the rufus album! Concept albums rule, and a concept album about an archeologist could be the coolest thing I’ve ever heard of!!! On top of that dead air sounds like its going to be an awesome song! I can’t wait to hear it!!

  11. StrangeLilGirl!

    AMEN! I’m so happy you blogged again. Really missed it. Please play in Holland, though I doubt you will =( Anyways, AWESOME!!! I wish I could take a look in your Ghoulish mind and see what you’re planning next!

    “although if I would have just written a re-make, it would have been filmed already”

    Isn’t that the sad, depressing truth? Best of luck with your script, can’t wait to get more from you!

    Hey Curtis, I love the new music. The new music is bad ass. Great sense of polish to it.

    Will you still do work with Erik in Creature Feature, or are you trying to go solo though?
