M. SHAWN “CLOWN” CRAHAN UNVEILS APOCALYPTICNIGHTMARE.COM
CUSTOMIZED MERCHANDISE AVAILABLE
THE BLACK DOTS OF DEATH DEBUT ALBUM ‘EVER SINCE WE WERE CHILDREN’ OUT MARCH 29
M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan, best known as one of the founding members of Slipknot, has just unveiled www.apocalypticnightmare.com, his new home on the web. The site will be the new one stop shop to see everything going on in Clown’s world from art to music. The features on the site will include an online gallery of Clown’s photographs and paintings, as well as an extensive music section. The music section will include streaming tracks of bands Clown has produced, remixed, and played drums on, as well as his solo project Brain Wash Love, To My Surprise, Dirty Little Rabbits and his latest venture, The Black Dots of Death.
While To My Surprise and Dirty Little Rabbits paid homage to Clown’s musical upbringing on classic rock and pop, Slipknot fans are more likely to embrace The Black Dots of Death. The band’s debut album Ever Since We Were Children will be released March 29th through Sopra Evil/Rocket Science Ventures. There is a familiar dark theme and ominous sound pulsing through the album, which will be instantly recognized by Slipknot fans.
The Black Dots of Death have allowed Clown to combine art with his music at a new level. The cover art of the album features a baby doll head, and expanding on that, Clown will be offering custom baby doll heads in a very limited series – personally painting and defacing each head, making it a one of a kind piece of art. Other items in CD bundles include an original song composed by BDOD, autographed 8X10s, t-shirts, hoodies, shot glasses and more. Fans can pre-order now at http://myplay.me/192. Anyone who pre-orders can forward their confirmation with their name and phone number to BlackDotsContest@gmail.com and each Friday until release date, 10 people will be randomly chosen to receive a five minute thank you call from Clown.
The Black Dots of Death have unveiled another track from their forthcoming album titled, ‘The Hunt Is Over’ streaming now at http://thehuntisover.viinyl.com
