Are you following Josh’s twitter? Earlier today he tweeted that SiCk KiDs will be out May 17th on Horris Records! Holy crap, finally!

Kill Your Rapper is on the lookout for a preorder.

But before the album release and his UK tour in May (with MC Chris, Akira The Don, MC Lars) it looks like Mr. Eppard is gonna throwdown in his new hometown!  March 12th WS will be performing with Wavis’ rock band- The City Never Sleeps– at Valentine’s in Albany, NY for $5.

Josh also recently tweeted that he’s doing a collaboration with DJ Big Chocolate and over on facebook Weerd Science posted this dope video of him and Pugs freestyling…

MerchNow has this promotion going on all month that they’re calling MarchNOW Clearance.  Among the gazillion items on sale is the Weerd Science Butterflies t-shirt- for $5.99.  That’s like, half price!  What a steal!  Only Large and 2XL sizes are left.

I waited this long to tell you kids exactly how it is, under medicated and ready to scream it in your ears!

On holiday break after a steady year of recording, touring, releasing, and touring some more with Terrible Things, Weerd Science hopped on twitter and proclaimed that he NEEDED to record some hip-hop.  Josh explained that his DJ, Dirty Ern, also fell into some free time and so the two walled-up in Dirty’s basement apartment to bring an old concept to life.  He kept followers updated as he wrote and recorded 2 new songs right on the spot, which they posted up for free download immediately.  They refer to the session as, “Weekend At Dirty’s” and warned that it will happen again.

The two songs, “Plague Days” and “The Spawn of Lies Spun” are up on http://weerdscience.bandcamp.com/

During his twitter spree, Josh also shared that Sick Kids will be coming out this year on MC Lars’ label, Horris Records.  There’s also rumors circulating that both rappers will be performing at the 2011 Warped Tour…

It’s been a while since we updated, but Mr. Weerd Science sure has been busy!

Terrible Things just returned from their first tour. On their way out west and back they played with Circa Survive, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, Story of the Year, Dashboard Confessional… They’re heading out East in May with Anberlin and SOTY. April 17th Terrible Things released a 7″ single of the “The Hills of Birmingham” demo and the “Up At Night” acoustic demo for Record Store Day. We found this super cool 2 part video interview with Josh and Fred Mascherino

Also while scouring youtube, Kill Your Rapper came across some live footage of Terrible Things’ San Francisco show captured by Josh’s uncle, John The Baker!  And Alternative Press’ video of “Up at Night” from their “100 Bands You Need to Know in 2010” SXSW showcase.

As of yesterday, we finally have a chance to hear a studio track from Josh’s new band!!! It’s called, “Revolution.”

In Weerd Science news- Rick Whispers posted a dope song featuring Josh titled, “Everywhere That We Go.”

Lurking around Dirty Ern and CJB’s twitters, Kill Your Rapper has learned the two Super Posse of Awesomeness members are working on a project together- Flannel Channel.  They’ve been posting about it on @FlannelChannel and streamed live from Applehead Studio on Wednesday while Weerd Science was in the vocal booth!  The duo have been sharing video clips and photos on flannelchannelmusic.tumblr.com.  Last month they posted a video of Josh on drums.  Flannel Channel sounds like a truly awesome project!  They’ve tweeted/facebooked/tumblr’d about Ant Masington (Session 606), Gartdrumm, Joey Eppard, Emily Long, Mazeman, Rick Whispers, Pugs, Alanna Quinn (Medicated Kisses), Jared Colby, Ryan Moran (The Midnight Renewal), Phil Puma, and the female rapper Sarai also being in the studio over the past few months!  It was really cool watching Josh write/record on the stream.  Can’t wait to hear the finished song!

Terrible Things and Kabul!

New (old ass) demo up for download in the Media section, or right click here to save “Kabul,” a sick ass song.

Sorry that the forum has been dead and glitchy and fucking shit. SMF is not a forum software that likes WS apparently. Maybe it’ll be better now? Test it out!

I also added a TERRIBLE THINGS section to the forum, to discuss Josh’s newest project, previously called Initials. He’s back on the drums!
