THIS AUSTRALIAN ROBOT TOURS

G'day y'all!!

Check the press release below for tour dates.

MC Lars



TAPERJEAN PRESS RELEASE:

Tuesday 24 March, 2009
For immediate release

MC Lars is a Gigantic Robot That Kills

The self-proclaimed originator of 'post-punk laptop rap,' MC Lars, will release his highly anticipated second album, This Gigantic Robot Kills, on Saturday 25 April through Taperjean Records/Shock. The release will feature three exclusive bonus tracks, and see MC Lars return to Australia for an East Coast tour in May.

Catch MC Lars on Friday 22 May at the Wheelers Heel Hotel in Wheelers Hill (Victoria), Saturday 23 May at Bang in Melbourne, Wednesday 27 May at Blush Nightclub on the Central Coast, Thursday 28 May at the Campbelltown City Hotel in Campbelltown, Friday 29 May at Spectrum in Sydney, and Saturday 30 May at Thriller in Brisbane.

This Gigantic Robot Kills includes the first single 'Guitar Hero Hero (Beating Guitar Hero Doesn't Make You Slash)' - a collaboration with Paul Gilbert (Mr Big) - as well as MC Lars teaming up with childhood hero "Weird Al" Yankovic, who plays accordion on 'True Player for Real'. Lars also joins forces with Pierre Bouviere (Simple Plan) on the "hottest" track about global warming ever recorded, 'It's Not Easy (Being Green)'. And to top it off, the entire album was mixed by Mike Patterson, who made waves with Notorious B.I.G.'s Life After Death (1997) and Beck's Midnite Vultures (1999).

In true MC Lars style, the collaborations don't end there. This Gigantic Robot Kills also features contributions from the Rondo Brothers, Mike Kennedy of Vision of Disorder, MC Bat Commander of The Aquabats, Suburban Legends, Gabriel Saporta of Cobra Starship, Brett Anderson of The Donnas, MC Frontalot, Jesse Dangerously, Linus Dotson of Size 14, Parry Gripp of Nerf Herder, Jonathan Coulton, and Sebastian Reynolds.

The title for the album was inspired by MC Lars' late mentor, Wesley Willis, who battling mental health issues used a DIY and punk rock approach to spread his energetic songs across the world. Before passing away in 2003, Willis told Lars, "Lars Horris! I like your songs, I'll write a song about you. I'll probably write it on my next rock 'n' roll record, which is called 'This Gigantic Robot Kills'." Unfortunately Willis passed away before he had a chance to release the album, and so in memory of his hero, MC Lars decided to use the title for his new album.

MC Lars has been combining his love of hip hop and punk music on his laptop computer for over ten years. Since he began in 1998, he has released three albums under the name Lars Horris, two full-length studio albums as MC Lars, and two EPs (including The Green Chistmas EP). He has performed with artists including Bowling for Soup, Say Anything, Gym Class Heroes, Simple Plan, The Matches and Test Icicles, toured across the US, UK, Europe, Australia, and Japan, and has emerged as one of the pioneering artists at the forefront of the new musical genre dubbed "nerdcore".
