Our best friends in music, Smashy Claw have launched an IndieGoGo campaign in preparation for the release of not one, but TWO brand new albums. We were involved the production of one of these albums, helping with mixing and playing some instruments on it, and we can truly say these are some really creative and funny songs with a lot of personality, over many different genres. A labor of love, for sure. If you like us, you’ll like them. Donating is like basically pre-ordering these albums, so what are ya waiting for?
Last month, I was commissioned to create backing music to a toddler eccentrically singing songs he made up into a smartphone mic for 10 minutes. Carrie Dahlby’s kid, Alex Rasey, arrives with his debut record, “Rocketships UFOs.” I ended up going kinda crazy out-there with the instrumentation (making the cover art pretty appropriate), and it ended up being this fun little avant-garde project that I’m quite proud of. Definitely worth checking out, and it’s only $4! Digital or CD.
You can now get the entire Nuclear Bubble Wrap digital discography from Bandcamp for just $25! This includes Multiverses, Psycho Delicacy, Abracadaver, Exploding Head Syndrome, plus all singles.
Nuclear Bubble Wrap’s own bassist, Stephen Smith, is getting older! So, he’s throwing himself a birthday show featuring several of the bands he’s in. Each band is covering a section of Pink Floyd’s The Wall, from beginning to end. In addition to Nuclear Bubble Wrap, the show will feature the bands Trigger Digit, Regdar and the Fighters, In Mi Vida, Slurpasaur and Bear Vomit!
The show will be a Cafe Coco in Nashville on July 9th, starting at 8pm. This is a free and all ages show, so there’s no excuse for not being there.
Cafe Coco is located at 210 Louise Ave, Nashville 37203.
Here’s a new Nuclear Bubble Wrap song from the next album! It’s the sequel to “The Fault in Our Death Stars.” The Death Star becomes a giant disco party while The Emperor has a blast destroying the universe! Yeah, we made a disco song. Groovy.
Well the Death Star’s a giant dance floor
So slap Jar Jar’s ass at the door
Now that the Jedi’s not our downfall
Get on the dark side of my disco ball
Evil will always prevail
And who doesn’t love evil females?
Dance with light sabers out in the dark
While I shake my ass for the patriarch
It’s my new groove, I’m the emperor
I’m evil as balls
Evil makes us true adventurers
Lap dance from Darth Maul
It’s my new groove, in the emperor’s Death Star
It’s my new groove, and it’s also a meth star
*sound of the emperor snorting crystal meth off jar jar binks’ ass*
Jar Jar gets me to go down
My vision’s turning brown, ooo
The galaxy’s melting down
A certain Lucas not a where to be found
Kyle Thorne: guitars, bass, keyboards, drum programming
Jace McLain: keyboards, backing vocals
Thank you, MTAC! It was certainly an interesting acoustic-fun-time. And big thanks to Deadpool for doing some sexy dances during Natural Woman and playing percussion on Undying Love! This was our setlist:

This week’s episode of Radio Free Hipster podcast by GeekDad features the song “Time is an Illusion” from our new album! They add, “Nuclear Bubble Wrap’s Multiverses LP sees the Nashville trio continue to evolve from the more Dead Milkmen meets Dementia music of their earlier work ever deeper into an almost Flaming Lips caliber of psychedelic space pop.”
Check out Nuclear Bubble Wrap on Fandomania podcast, talking about the new album Multiverses, Star Wars, FineBros YouTube drama, and more!
This month, we make an appearance on an all-new Ween tribute album called “Mutilated Hits,” created by the Facebook group Ween Appreciation Society (Rise of the Boognish). The album contains 25 very cool, very brown Ween covers. Other artists include our friends Smashy Claw, Vustice, and Derwood Bowen. Our contribution was a cover of the obscure B-side “The Wolfman.” Hear it right here:
To top it all off, our song got the seal of approval from Dean Ween himself. We’re honored. Thanks to Ween Appreciation Society for letting us be involved!
The new Nuclear Bubble Wrap single/video, “The Fault in Our Death Stars” is out! From our brand new album, Multiverses, this space-rock song details an alternate reality where Darth Vader turned Luke to the dark side, and they enjoy father/son bonding while destroying the universe together. Look for all the cameos! Share this video and don’t forget to check out our new album.
