Hypersonic Secret releases debut EP, "Project: MAYHEM"

Boneyard Records artist Hypersonic Secret is proud to announce the release of their debut EP, Project: MAYHEM, out now and available digitally, on limited edition compact disc or black 180g vinyl, or even more limited edition clear 180g vinyl.

Project: MAYHEM is the first of a series of EPs chronicling the journey of a highly classified spacecraft and its even more highly classified pilot. The saga starts with the ship's final tests in Earth's atmosphere and nearby, featuring a tale woven through six surf-infused instrumental tracks and a cliffhanger ending to be resolved with the second EP, tentatively titled Moonbase Surficalus, due out in late 2024.

The EP in all its formats is available now via the Hypersonic Secret Bandcamp page. Visit Boneyard Records for more information.

New CD by THE CRUNCHER is released

The CD "The Curl Rider" by THE CRUNCHER dropped in today.

I wasn't involved in this project which contains 18 tracks (playing time 47 minutes and 59 seconds). A couple of years ago Herbert Kooke (aka The Cruncher) had told me that he wants to record and release a new CD every year as long as he can hold a guitar and play it.

So here is his 10the CD (two vinyl albums are also in his production list of his band!)
