Here Come the Mummies have yet another new studio album (their 6th) almost ready to caress your ear drums. "Cryptic" will be dusted off on May 14th, 2013. I like the "puzzling" album cover which makes me think of Hellraiser with an Egyptian twist.
You can hear a preview of some of the new songs in this "Cryptic" album teaser:
The band is also running a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the new album's release and promotion: MAKE "CRYPTIC" OUR BEST AND BIGGEST YET
. I backed the project at a tier that will reward me with an autographed copy of the CD, digital download, exclusive t-shirt and sticker.
But there are higher rewards for bigger contributions. They're offering things like... custom voicemail greetings, their used instruments and stage props, tickets to all their concerts for a year, and custom songs written about you. If you donate close to $10K they'll even come to your house (with KFC to feed everyone) and throw a concert in your living room for you and 10 friends.
If you like funny funk with horn playing mummies, but haven't checked out this band yet, a good place to start might be their greatest hits album called "Hits and Mrs."
