Rocket And A Bomb Live DVD/Album Kickstarter is Live

20 years of Rocket & a Bomb live DVD and download + a brand new Michael Knott EP released on 7″ vinyl, Cd, and download!

The DVD and Live album download:

20 years ago Michael Knott droped his second solo release, the iconic album Rocket And A Bomb! Some consider this his best work. The album is full of odd characters like Jan The Weatherman, Bubbles the Clown, and John Barrymore Jr. With heart on your sleeve lyrics and tales of Knott’s personal and spiritual journey, this album hits the listener in just the right spots.

To celebrate the anniversary of this amazing album Knott and company decided to play the whole album at a one night only, full band, live show! And lucky for those that can’t be there for this incredible experience, independent film maker Todd Zeller (Eden Z Films) will be in charge filming the show to be released on DVD. We are also recording the audio to release a Live Album that will be a download only.

One lucky fan can pick the reward of a one of a kind painting by Michael Knott that will grace the cover of the DVD. A few RAAB themed paintings will be up as rewards too!

The concert will happen November 7, 2014 at the Christ Community Church in Concord California. Dead Artist Syndrome is scheduled to open and a special set by Michael Roe (the 77’s and Lost Doga) and Derri Daugherty (The Choir and Lost Dogs) will close out the evening. See flyer above for details!

The new EP, 7″ vinyl, CD, and digital options:

Michael Knott will be working once again with Joshua Lory to record a new EP to be released on 7″ vinyl! Knott and Lory teamed up in the past to bring you L.S.Underground’s brooding yet hopeful “PTSD” and the Lifesavers triumphant return, the Kickstarter fan funded “Heaven High”. The EP will be at least 4 brand new Knott songs! And how awesome will it be to drop this thing on the ol’ record player!?!?

Like the DVD the EP will have a one of a kind Knott painting for the cover and one lucky backer will be able to pledge this reward!

Your contribution will go to fund production of the DVD and EP as well as travel expenses and postage for your rewards!

Live Recording and New 7″ In The Works

This was just posted by Joshua Lory: “Got my notes ready, practice, practice, practice (by myself right now). No solid date yet, but I think we have a venue picked out, should be in September sometime, looking like Oakland, Ca will be the city.¬†Michael Knott, myself,¬†Matt Biggers,¬†Nick White, and¬†Jafar Rafee Green¬†will be playing the entire Rocket And A Bomb album live (upon availability of these musicians) to celebrate it’s 20 year mark. I’m sure a few other tunes will be tagged on to the set.¬†Brian Healy¬†was kind enough to offer¬†Dead Artist Syndrome¬†as an opener! Todd A. Zeller¬†has offered to film the show! While Mike is up visiting, he and I will be recording a new EP to be released on 7″ vinyl, CD, and download. What this means is a¬†Kickstarter¬†will be launched to cover cost of making DVD’s of Rocket And A Bomb Live and the EP. I’ll keep everyone posted on when everything is happening as soon as I have the details.”

New Knott Music Is Coming!

Recent discussion on Facebook have unearthed proof that Michael Knott is working on new albums. And also finishing out some old ones. A new Michael Knott Fan page is up on Facebook for discussions, but it sports a picture of Mr. Knott working on Pennies For Stormie Laine. A few other releases have been mentioned to, so we may see a flurry of new music over the next year or two.
