Greetings and salutations, fans of Cartoon Violence! After taking some time to rock the cosmos beyond Earth’s reach, we are back for a few very special announcements. Not only are we announcing right here and now our upcoming EP “Cartoon Violence Has Got You Covered”, we’re also possibly coming to your town (if you live in Portland, California, or Vegas!) Our new EP is chock full of nothing but covers and tributes, so you’re bound to like it more than those scary new, original songs you’re used to hearing us play. You’ll hear tunes from David Bowie, They Might Be Giants, Oingo Boingo, Depeche Mode and Steven Universe!!!

But we’re not done blowing your minds yet! Not even close! Since this month marks the four year anniversary of the release of our epic full-length studio album “Robots and Dinosaurs”, we’re making all our albums available for just FOUR FUCKING DOLLARS!!! It’s a limited time offer unless of course, we forget to switch it back to its regular price, so go and give us your hard-earned money!

So there you go: a new EP is coming soon, we tour at the start of March, and our entire catalog is on sale for $4. It doesn’t get much better than this! Oh wait, IT TOTALLY FUCKING DOES! Here’s a sneak peek track off Cartoon Violence Has Got You Covered! Each time you listen or share the news on your social media we take another bite out of musical crime!

This track was sequenced immediately following Bowie’s death in January of 2016. We performed it live with Mike Ackman (Together We Are Robots) at Freq.Fest.5 in downtown LA the following weekend, and then we recorded this version for a chiptune Bowie tribute album which you can buy for a minimum $5 donation to MacMillan Cancer Support, a UK cancer charity.
