“We went through a lot as a band on this last album cycle that, in some ways, really challenged our friendships. It was all new for us and we had our difficulties dealing with it, but came out a stronger better band cause of it. Thick As Thieves really explains our mindset as a band, we realized that nothing can come between us unless we allow it to, and we got back to basics as a band, just four guys writing music that really meant something to us first. We believe that it’ll translate to the fans better if it comes from an honest place.” – Casey Walker (lead singer)

Post-punk laptop rapper MC LARS unleashed his first mixtape INDIE ROCK SCIENCE on his own record label Horris Records at midnight this morning, June 17, 2011. This will be the inaugural installment of a series of FREE mixtapes, which can be downloaded from his bandcamp page here: http://mclars.bandcamp.com/.
“All of the featured rappers are people I reached out to directly and they all bring a different take to my ‘post-punk laptop rap’ style,” Lars explains. The project features a bunch of collabs, including one with my dad, a California poet and spoken word artist known as MC Bob Nielsen.” Some of the collaborators include KRS-One, Sage Francis, Weerd Science, and MC Chris among others and Indie Rocket Science serves as a prelude to his upcoming album Lars Attacks! which will be released later this Summer.
While many of his peers fear piracy as a virus infecting the music industry, MC Lars takes a bold approach and embraces it, which he described quite thoroughly on a feature on his DIY indie rap ideology on CNN Money (which can be seen here: http://goo.gl/JDwaW). “We’re pro-piracy because if a kid has my entire catalog and comes to a show, he’ll bring his friends,” he tells CNN. Instead of losing sleep over dwindling record sales, Lars will be giving away these 18 new tracks so his fans can sing along with him and his partner in crime and first signing to his Horris Records label, Weerd Science on 2011 Vans Warped Tour. For full dates, go to http://www.warpedtour.com.
