Thank you for a great 2013!!!

Thanks to all the Martian Maniacs, clubs and promoters that made 2013 such a great year. We appreciate every CD and T-shirt purchase, download, listen, video view, handshake, headbang, and photo taken. We couldn’t do this without you. We hope to see you all over the the universe in 2014 with new tunes and at new venues. Be sure to rock out this New Year and be safe. We want to see you in 2014 rockin out with us!!! Best wishes and thanks!

Videos from Beerland

Here are a few videos a Martian Maniac (a fan) captured at our Beerland show in Austin, Texas.  We love it when people take pictures or video’s at our shows and send them our way so we can share them with you.   We super excited to close out this year at Red Eyed Fly on December 28th (9:30pm) rocking with all of you!  Check out the videos and let us know what you think.

FYI: The audio quality isn’t the greatest, in fact you might want to start the first video at 00:01:38 where the audio improves a bit.  If anyone would like to help us film a show and capture some good audio with it let us know!


How to make a Rocktopuss

Check out this awesome video Billy Garetsen did of himself creating his latest Rocktopuss painting.  If you haven’t done so already, go check out Billy’s Deviant Art site and all of his awesome artwork.

This Rocktopuss artwork is featured on the poster for our Dec 28th, 2013 show at the Red Eyed Fly.  This will be our last show of 2013 and we’re excited to end out this awesome year rocking with all of you!

Have a drink of Martian water

We often joke around at shows that we are from Mars, and will someday head back to our home planet to put on an EPIC rock concert.  That day may be closer than you think is they have discovered  clean water on Mars.

The NASA rover Opportunity while out poking about looking for things discovered that not only is there water on Mars, but now they have proof that there is water of neutral-pH (essentially benign drinkable water) there.  WOW.  How cool is that?!?!?

Checkout this article for a deeper dive into the pool of life-giving water on Mars and prepare yourself to quench your thirst while we rock the red planet!

Love song about the apocalypse

I hear Tony say it at every show: “This next one is a love song… about the apocalypse“.  I take it as my que to count us in to Cities on Fire, a truly EPIC song that reminds us to fight for love.  As an impending apocalypse may are may not be on the horizon, it never hurts to be prepared.  To that extent, and most likely with only earthly bound vehicles at our disposal, it makes sense for everyone that wants to survive to learn HOW to survive by driving like a crazed yet controlled maniac.  Sam Sheridan recently did just that and not only wrote a book about it Disaster Diaries: How I learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Apocalypse, but also a cool article on Jalopnik that you should definitely check out.

Happy Thursday,
