Get Brujita by Chris Masuak and The Viveiro Wave Riders Now!

Written by Team Masuak on . Posted in Album

Chris Masuak (ex-Radio Birdman, Screaming Tribesmen, New Christs, Hitmen) has a new album recorded with his crack Spanish band, The Viveiro Wave Riders.

"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.

Klondike Says Thanks!

The project to get his "Bruijita" album out on CD has passed its goal and the album is on its way to the pressing plant. Chris sends this message from his rehearsal studio in Viveiro, Spain. The album is funded but the project remains open until its deadline.

Get Chris Masuak's album out on CD

Written by Team Masuak on . Posted in Album

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.

Wanna help? We're running a two-month campaign over the New Year period to raise some money to fund the CD release. 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. Find out more and tip in some loot... there's even rewards for lucky pledgers.
