Chris Masuak (ex-Radio Birdman, Screaming Tribesmen, New Christs, Hitmen) has a new album recorded with his crack Spanish band, The Viveiro Wave Riders. It's slated for release on vinyl only with a European label in early 2016. This campaign is to get the sucker out on CD!  

"Brujita" is a return to hard rock-pop roots for Masuak. Propelled by a nimble engine room and Klondike's scorching guitar, it's a rock and roll record tempered by his trademark melody lines and pop smarts. It features 12 tracks (two of them exclusive to the CD edition) and most of them are instant anthems. 

From the rollicking "Viveiro Rocks" to the raucous ode to Detroit's diva, "Niagara", this is an album of high-energy rock-pop rifferama. From the stinging Birdmanesque "No Younger" (based in part on a song Chris wrote for the Birdmen back in 1996) to the Flamin'-Groovies-meet-the-Dictators swagger of "Another Lost Weekend" (a re-recorded version of a vinyl single) to the acidic reflection of "Bird Brain", it's a gem.

The Challenges

We're running a two-month campaign over the New Year period which presents some challenges in its own right. We know people are busy with family or back-to-work commitments right now but the imperative is synchronising the CD release with the anticipated vinyl version, so we need to move as quickly as possible.
