Thanks again, Projected Twin fans are THE best fans on earth!
The anticipated 2nd album Earth Vs World is now available for Pre-Order via BandCamp! Available as a download or physical CD, all pre-orders come with the immediate download of the new (and un-released) single Grab On Please!
There is only very limited stock on the album on CD so be fast to secure yourself a copy!
Due to a minimum order requirement for a special run of the debut Projected Twin album Earth to World. There are 29 copies of Earth To World available for order on CD DigiPack! This is the first time they have been available in 6 months and once these go it will likely be another 6-12 months before they are on sale again!
I can't even really begin to describe how heart broken I am by the death of Nathan Wills. For those of you that didn't know him, he was a composer for EVERYONE. majority of the YouTube community used his music in their videos after he was discovered by SMPfilms. Nathan actually inspired me to take Projected Twin to YouTube in the first place. It was his innovation as a musician that pushed me to find a place for my own music. Nathan and I worked on a number of collaborations over the years, not all of them made it to the upload page on YouTube... hopefully that will change now.
It hurts so much for the living when someone feels enough inner pain to take their own life. The question marks they leave behind are devastating to the ones that are left to pick up the pieces, but you can't help but feel relieved that someone who desperately wanted not to be in this form any longer, someone who was so spiritually in tune, GIFTED, has found peace.
My condolences go out to his family. Nathan has touched so many with his passion and creativity. Rest in peace, bro.
(Below is a video I was lucky to be a part of. It was conducted and arranged by Nathan for a mutual friend's birthday.)
In light of recent events, I'm shifting the focus of Projected Twin purely to making good music. My 2nd album is well into production and sounding MASSIVE! I'm so proud of how this is turning out and the musicians that are involved with making this record are really bringing it to the next level.
Copies of Earth To World are currently completely sold out. There are a few slots left on the Projected Twin Pledge Music page in which you can order a copy of Earth To World on CD when you Pre-Order the digital download of the anticipated PT release Earth VS World. There are a number of options available and for the time being, this is your only opportunity to own a copy of Earth To World on CD.
I was lucky enough to get the guys to jump behind some cameras and capture this live performance of 'The Signature'. It was filmed in May during the IRL tour with SMPfilms and KatersOneSeven. We're currently half way through our 12,000 mile trip across North America where I've been given the pleasure of performing to crowds just like this one from town to town!
So we're on tour and doing plenty of driving (12,000 miles actually). The team and I were driving between Phoenix and Albuquerque when we came up along side a HUGE meteor crater! Sounds like the perfect location to whip out a guitar to me!
The cool kids over at Lauda Guitars have made an official listing for me as one of their product sponsors! They were kind enough to give me my own Custom BlackBird, which is INCREDIBLE. Sponsorship aside, I've been a massive fan of these guitars since using 4 of them for 95% of the tracking to Earth To World (2010) and I am stoked to finally have my own. They honestly make you a better player!
I'm currently in Thousand Oaks, California with SMPfilms and KatersOneSeven. We're getting ready to go out on our MASSIVE tour of North America. Here's what I've been up to while SMPfilms has been getting things ready for the tour!
TICKET PRICES: FREE and you don't need a ticket!!!
WHAT ARE WE DOING? We're traveling across the US to meet as many of our viewers as we can to hang out, play some acoustic music and show some love. It's our way of saying "THANK YOU" for all the support you've given us through the years.
WHAT VENUES WILL WE PLAY? None of them! We're meeting at major land marks so everyone knows where to go.
HOW LONG WILL WE BE THERE? About 1-2 hours, depending on the location and number of attendees.
HOW CAN YOU AFFORD THIS TOUR? 2 words. Gungho Energy! Gungho Energy is our sponsor and they're paying for our transportation. The rest of the money will come from our merchandise sales or from our own pockets if no one decides to buy anything (which we've saved up for just in case). Plus, we'll make money back from the videos we make on YouTube along the way. After all, we're going to be around A LOT of interesting people and places.
ARE YOU COMING OUTSIDE OF THE US? If the US tour does well, then YES! We will plan to do some touring to the UK, Australia and Canada.
The Projected Twin tour has been cancelled due to poor management. From the bottom of our heart we'd like to say we're sorry and we will find some way to make it up to you all. We did everything we could to make the tour the best it could be but the problems weren't our own and there was nothing we could do.
One of the main promoters had this to say: "New plans to continue the tour are in the works and yours truly might be the new manager. Stay tuned!" -Cory Williams (smpfilms)
Refunds will be made to those that have pre-bought tickets via the final relief website. If you have any concerns regarding refunds please contact Final Relief:
This is the last cover I'll be uploading for a long while. I'll be focusing on original music for the next 12 months, I'll still be putting out regular vids with previews and BTS looks at the new album etc.. This isn't the 'end' of me doing covers, I'll do more covers kind of on a 'when the inspiration strikes' basis.
If you would like the MP3 for this song, you can download it for free by Pledging towards my new album 'Earth Vs World' at the widget below!
Well here we are! I've had mental break-downs, heart to hearts with some of you and banged my head into walls repeatedly, but we're here! I've picked myself back up again and we're seeing this through! So here it is guys! We've got 17 days from today to rock this last 33%.
To sweeten the deal i'm also giving away my previous workhorse, a PRS Custom 22 Electric Guitar (Valued at over $2000) to one lucky album pledger!
So lets bring it home guys! No more doubts, no more excuses (from me), lets make Projected Twin History! (lol, so dramatic)
Well! This sure was cool to wake up to. In my inbox was a link to a video that three talented young Music YouTubers had put together of my song "Shark Water". They've completely re-tracked and mixed it in their own style and I have to say I'm seriously impressed with the creativity and vision that went into this! See for yourself! :D
Tomorrow at 5PM (PA, USA, 03.16.2012) Gas House Radio will be featuring Projected Twin music! So to celebrate, I will be hanging out in the GasHouse Online Player Chat-room from 5-7pm. Come chat to me live and lets party while we listen to my tunes being broadcast across the globe!
We're looking for artists and bands to open shows in the following towns on the following dates! Send your links, press packs and details to email@example.com and we'll check you out! Can't wait to put some of you on the bill!
I've been getting spammed with requests to share the Kony phenomenon (like we all have) and I've also been watching the adverse reactions on Twitter and Facebook. A lot of people trying to derail the campaign and it's credibility. A lot of people have been arguing that the topic and incidents are from too long ago and that it's not actually of any benefit to Uganda, etc etc etc.
My view on this is as follows (and keep in mind that I've already made a monetary contribution to the Invisible Children)
"Everyone is completely aware that the Stop Kony campaign is NOT going to "fix" Uganda. That's not it's purpose! The point is that we as a global population stand up together and make people accountable for their hideous crimes, no matter where they are and no matter HOW long ago it was. Kony needs to be found, and we as the new generation of Earthlings need this to happen. Not to 'solve all of the worlds problems' but as a beacon of our ability to achieve incredible results just by being connected the way we are today!"
