Release show press from Local Spins!

Tuesday, August 26th 2014

Thanks to John Sinkevics from Local Spins for the mention about our upcoming release show! We're getting everything ready for the show, hope to see you there!

(Here is the press from Local Spins pasted below, link to original story is located here: )

When: 9:30 p.m.
Thursday Admission: Free
Where: Founders Brewing Co., Grand Rapids

So, Mail Order Monsters has an engaging moniker but perhaps an even more engaging musical approach: The Grand Rapids trio writes and performs original tunes using only Commodore 64 computers, a true antique when it comes to technology, considering they were discontinued back in 1994 after selling millions upon millions of units. The "chiptune" band uses multiple keyboards connected to Commodore audio circuitry during its live shows. Band members are celebrating release of their debut album, in LP and CD form, and some special guests will be joining them on Thursday night. Oh, and band member Rich Vogel tells me they do "a pretty rockin" synth metal cover of "Electric Funeral" by Black Sabbath." Sweet. Details online at"
