What is Rustmonster doing these days anyways?

by Craig Nybo ~ August 2, 2011

Greetings RM fans,

We know its been a while since you have heard any new music from us. We assure you that more great pirate music is on the way. We have taken a bit of a diversion and decided to explore some other avenues. We hope you will understand that we have temporarily conceded to the inner need to put on big hairy outfits and play Journey songs. We know this need exists in almost every human male. Please grant us our indulgence and, if possible, follow along with us on our journey (no pun intended). Without any more delay, we present the RUSTMONSTER band as Wasasquatch. We hope you enjoy it.

Craig Nybo Launches Zombie Music Project

by Craig Nybo ~ April 28, 2011

Craig Nybo, Rustmonster bass player, has launched a new musical project entitled “Zombie Sing-a-long.” This project is meant to be a collaboration between him and his friends. Unlike Rustmonster, Zombie Sing-a-long (ZSAL) takes on a stripped down approach to songwriting. Craig has decided on a no overdubbing rule, which leaved the music in it’s rarest form, just a man and a guitar, campfire style. Craig invites anyone to write poetry about zombies and to send their work to him. If he likes it, he just might put it to music and add it to his new book of ZSAL tunes.

Rustmonster Update

by Craig Nybo ~ April 14, 2011

Greetings fellow pirates,

Just wanted to update you all on the progress of the band. Unfortunately, we have had to temporarily delay the third album in our book of pirate tales. We will be getting back to the project later this year.

In the meantime, we have taken a bit of a detour. We are working hard to put together a surprise show that will be nothing short of incredible. The show is slated to take place in Salt Lake City sometime in October. We are updating our sound, pulling in some new talent to add to our live lineup, and removing all the stops. We will post more information on this event as it gets closer.

Yours truly,

The boys of Rustmonster

New Album Coming Along

by Craig Nybo ~ October 8, 2010

The new Rustmonster album, The Treachery of Dante’s Forgiveness, is back on track. We had to take a break to facilitate a busy gigging schedule. We have scored the music for all 3 acts in the spoken word part of the album. We will record the bed for act III next week.

After that, we will work on a new song by Rick “Rick’s Hair” Nef, sax player. We’re excited about this one because its the first song Rick has written and brought to the table. It’s a good one.
