After 5 or so years of silence Secret Chief’s 3, Trey Spruance’s merry band of ex Bungle players, random musical geniuses and various satellite bands all operating under the SC3 moniker, offer up a taster of new material in an effort to fund their future endeavors. So listen and buy so we can all enjoy 2 new albums in 2017. Without the funds from this release they simply wont be able to afford to do what they need to do. And if you think the A-side is good check out the haunted house surf carnival of The New Daylight (Welcome to the Theatron Animatronique).
They go into a bit more detail about their financial issues here. But this is an excerpt. And remember, support the people who support you:
“People are probably already pretty clear on the fact that SC3 is a little different than a few bros jumping in a van. And we’ll save extrapolating the extent to which it is a different kind of beast for another time. But listeners will already know that full-length productions involving over 20 top notch musicians are a commonplace in SC3-land. If we do the math on the serious studio work that goes into each record, or take a moment to imagine the demand on resources such undertakings require, I don’t think it will dispel the magic. Quite the contrary. It ought to trigger further wonderment… one might ask — how on earth…? — … well, take a look in the mirror, pilgrim. You made it possible when you bought our record.”
