LOS ANGELES, CA – 7 Mar, 2016 – California Comedy legends Duran Blades Project have reunited and are planning to record a brand new studio album this summer. The follow up to their 2006 release ‘Still Kicking’ will feature hilarious skits, songs, stand up and new music from hip hop’s clown prince Young Thug (Thugger rumored to be a huge fan of the duo). Tours will follow the new disc’s release.
Duran Blades Project 2016 is:
Jeff “J.J. Star” Duran (Jeff Dandurand)
Says Duran: “The past is the past. We are looking to the future of recording the best record of our lives. Stoked for this! I promise this will kick your asses!”
Duran Blades Project rose to popularity in the mid-2000s primarily due to Jeff “J.J. Star” Duran‘s over-the-top stage performances (in early shows Duran would dry hump and attack various audience members who walked out during the performance). Creative differences forced Blades to focus on a career in film. Ironically Jason‘s first project ‘Belligerence’ (See trailer below) is a documentary about the brash alter ego of his sometimes former comedy pal. Duran never quit, releasing three full-length albums and an EP between 2007 and 2011. Duran Blades Project played some reunion shows in 2010 before disbanding again in late 2012.
On May 26, the duo’s 2006 release, ‘Still Kicking’ will be reissued on vinyl as well as on digi-CDs. This special reissue will feature 30 minutes of bonus material in honor of it’s tenth anniversary. This unreleased material includes never before heard songs, stand up and skits from fan favorites Evis and Sloucho. While not commercially successful, the ‘Still Kicking’ CD is considered an underground classic, sometimes fetching for as much as $700 on eBay and Amazon.
The ‘Still Kicking’ vinyls will be released with 400g heavy cardboard spine sleeves (inside out print), 60x60cm artwork posters and 250g inserts.
