Adam Warrock is on a Marvel Now tip, Lars and Random add UK dates.
Adam Warrock Pays Tribute To Marvel Now.
If you subscribe to Adam Warrock’s YouTube channel (And you should) you’ll have seen his week long tribute to Marvel’s current run of new comics. I wrote up about his Norrin Radd song earlier in the week, since then he’s gone on to release tracks about Ms. Marvel, Ghost Rider, She Hulk and Moon Knight. Head over to YouTube to enjoy these now.
MC Lars Adds Two More UK Dates.
In other news, Lars’ kickstarter campaign designed to raise funds to complete his latest full-length album ended up raising a staggering $42,213, way over his initial $10,000 target. Fans can now look forward to some stretch goal extras including two new music videos which will credit all backers (all 1,017 of them) as producers. Sadly the campaign fell a couple of thousand shy of Lars throwing a BBQ party and live streamed concert.
On the subject of the album, set to be titled The Zombie Dinosaur LP, Lars also confirmed on facebook this week that Roger Lima from ska/punk rockers Less Than Jake will be appearing on the album.
Other artists confirmed include Adam Warrock, Watsky, Schäffer the Darklord, Mega Ran, Shael Riley and the Suburban Legends.
