Disclaimer: Don’t look directly into the metal Taurus skull’s eyes. Randy and Daimon did during Cody’s bass solo, and you’ll see how that turned out…

Trick or Treat MF

Happy Hallowdays!  We recorded a catchy little ditty this week to show our holiday spirit.  It uses naughty words (just like Satan would), so make sure to hide your wee ones. And if you don’t have wee ones, crank it up!

“The Dreams That Stuff Are Made Of” LP Released!

Asbury Park-based psychedelic/progressive rock outfit Karmic Juggernaut has just released their new full-length album, The Dreams That Stuff Are Made Of, a collection of thirteen unique tunes written by the group. Recorded and mixed at The Hangar at the New Jersey Shore, the new album is a departure from the band’s earlier work, featuring new frontman Daimon Santa Maria, keyboardist Jake Hughes, a robust horn section (Joe Gullace & Ian Gray), mallet work by percussionist AJ Merlino, theremin by bassist Cody McCorry, and an array of other instruments. The result is an vintage-inspired album with a postmodern view of psychedelia. This new record draws from an eclectic variety of genres and musical tastes, and touches on topics such as today’s political climate, B-movies, mental illness, and features satirical approaches of contemporary living.

The Dreams That Stuff Are Made Of is available on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, Amazon Music, and Google Play.

New Album To Be Released 6/1/18!

We have spent the last year working on this album at our studio, The Hangar, in Wall Township, NJ.  It’s your turn to listen.
