The long journey after Huxwhukw

Serious Beak are an obscure progressive metal band that makes the human race cry a thousand tears of joy and confusion.

Four years after their epic battle against Huxwhukw, the feathered foursome have emerged from their hypersonic beak cave, armed with a weapon of mass prog-duction:

Their new album.

This mind-melting masterpiece of psychedelic prog glory will be released November 2015 through Art As Catharsis and Bird’s Robe Records.

We can’t wait to share this new music with you, but to make it happen we need your help.

Help these mighty Prog Warriors ride again into sonic victory, and be part of a legacy to change everything....


A thank you to

A huge thank you to our family, friends and fans for helping make this happen.

A special shout out to Tim Carr for his audio wizardry, Mike Solo for his sage advice, Caitlin Hackett for her beautiful artwork, Simeon Bartholomew for the lovely video, Nick Soole for the amazing video soundtrack, Mell Dettmer for the rad job on mastering, Sam Harwood for his continual help, and Marty Young and Mitch Wood for lending us gear for the recording.

Oh, and of course all your crazy people who enjoy our ridiculous music. xx

~ Serious Beak (^)> xx


How The Funds Will Be Used

The $3,500 raised will be used to print 250 sexy 12 records housed in a matte-finished, 350gsm gatefold sleeve. Tasty.

Any money raised over the target will go towards our tour fund, and help us recoup the considerable costs of recording, mixing, mastering and artwork.

The Challenges

Remembering the damn songs.
