Juggalos, we hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend with your family and homies (and be sure and remember the brave ninjas of our Armed Forces who gave their lives to our country). Starting tonight (Friday, May 22) at the stroke of midnight and running through 11:59 p.m. on Monday night…all Hatchet Gear will be on sale 20% off. All of it! CDs! Shirts! Charms! Blankets! You name it! And we have a bunch of new merch, too, including two new exclusive “Marvelous Missing Link” T-shirts designed by the world-renown fantasy artist Tom-Motherfucking-Wood! We also have a whole new line of Joker’s Card shirts just for the ladies and lots of other new flavor! So this weekend, hit up Hatchet Gear and enjoy some dope ass savings!
If you’re going to be at the 2015 Gathering of the Juggalos, here is your chance to be in a Psychopathic Records filmed and produced Juggalo Psypher music video! This may be a once in a lifetime event! Those wishing to compete should show up on Thursday or Friday (1:30pm to 4:30pm) fill out an info card and wait their turn to rap for 16-20 bars before a panel of judges (a beat will be provided). The judges will then rate each performer on flow, lyrical ingenuity and stage presence. The names of the top four rappers chosen by the judges will then be posted at the Info Booth on Friday Night at 6pm. Those chosen will then return on Saturday at 1:30pm to perform in a Juggalo Psypher music video (we will provide the film crew). This video will then be edited and posted on Psychopathic Records YouTube Channel, as well as all of our websites and social media pages. As if that weren’t enough it will also be premiered on The Juggalo Show podcast. So here it is on a platter. Your chance to showcase your talents to the world!
Now that the era of “The Marvelous Missing Link” is upon us, the first music video from the (LOST) album has been unveiled…and it’s literally da bomb! Last week, the video for “Explosions” was given the royal world premiere treatment courtesy of our homies at VICE (shout out to Mitchell Sunderland and River Donaghey for helping make it happen!) and this dope musical journey into the mind of a madman is now available for viewing online at ICP’s VEVO channel (http://www.vevo.com/artist/insane-clown-posse) or on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zor816YtFhM). It’s also embedded on the front page of www.insaneclownposse.com, so there’s literally no escape from the devastation of the “Explosions” video! Peep that shit!
“The Marvelous Missing Link (FOUND)” To Be Released Nationally On Friday, July 31 and also at the Gathering
In related Missing Link news, the release date for the second part of the Joker’s Card—“The Marvelous Missing Link (FOUND)”—will now be dropping nationwide on July 31 instead of the 28th as previously announced. This is due to the music industry changing the date of all new releases from Tuesdays to Fridays. We’re not exactly sure why the fuck they’re doing it this; we just know that we have to comply if we want to get our albums in stores. But whatever. The (FOUND) album will be available everywhere on Friday, July 31 at a record store near you, as well as all digital music outlets.
“The Marvelous Missing Link (FOUND)” will also be able for purchase at the merch booth at the 2015 Gathering of the Juggalos, so if you come to the Gathering, you can get that flavor a week early! So that’s just one more reasons to get tickets for the Gathering now! Order ‘em here: http://tickets.juggalogathering.com/
I'm back y'all, with the Wondrous Fantasy Artist himself, Tom Wood. Over the years he's given the ICP Joker Cards LIFE, and has solidified a seat forever in the Dark Carnival. I encourage you to check out his website www.tomwoodfantasyart.com or Facebook Tom Wood Fantasy Art, full of not only the wicked shit, but fantastical original creations. I hope you enjoy our conversation and thank you for your support!
ICP's Personal letter to Tom Wood:
We are truly fortunate and blessed to have somebody as talented and amazing as Tom Wood take up an interest in the Dark Carnival. We believe with all of our hearts he is a part of the Dark Carnival as he's obviously expanded it through bringing the Joker Card images to life with dead on accuracy. We cannot thank him enough for his seemingly endless time and dedication toward bringing the Dark Carnival's imagery to a whole new wicked level. It's amazing and inspiring, leaving us with jaw dropping awe, when witnessing his work. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and Much Clown Love to you my friend.
