— CHOMPCHOMPCHOMP, the Music Video —
In October, we partnered with YouTube sensation Albino Black Sheep to make an animated video for Former Spine’s lead single, “CHOMPCHOMPCHOMP”. It’s our first official music video release, and we’re very proud with how it turned out. If you like adorable gore, you’ll dig it! Check it out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_nw3YuByKA.

Since the release of our debut record last month, a few reviews have been released commenting on the album. You can check them out at http://spheremusic.me/2013/11/05/former-spine-by-smashy-claw/ and http://www.colomusicbuzz.com/smashy-claw-former-spine/, respectively. If you have a blog or something of the like and want to review our CD, we would really appreciate any feedback. Alternatively, you can review on iTunes and Amazon as well.

— F#$@ed Up Horoscope —
After a long night of binge eating and Netflix watching, you venture down to your solemn, lonely bedroom to drift off into another restless dream. As you lie awake in the blackness of your isolated dungeon, you once again consider how vacant and purposeless your life has felt these past few years. As your breath hangs in the cold air, you hug your blankets a little tighter as if to seek some warmth and comfort from something, however inanimate it may be. You desperately plot out how you might improve your dreary situation, continuing the unsuccessful ritual of nights past. Alas though, on this night a realization hits as you abruptly sit up in your mattress. You seem oddly excited about the future for the first time in many hundred hopeless days. The next morning you sell all your earthly possessions, give all but $20 of your life savings to charity, and with the remainder buy a costume from the local flee market. You spend the rest of yours days standing out on the highway dancing for the passing vehicles as Lumpy the Rug-Cutting Bumblebee. Dude… what? Why did you think this was a good idea?
