We’re so excited! Johnny Polygon has been added to the Norman Music Festival main stage. If you haven’t heard of NMF before, all you need to know is it’s outdoors, the stages are great, and its FREE! Theres going to be non-stop music from Thursday April 23-Saturday April 25th.
Come through and get your festival on in Johnny’s home state of Oklahoma. He’s putting together a super special show and a huge backing band, set to play his set during sunset on Saturday April 25th at 6:30 PM. You’re not going to want to miss this set.
Anyone within a drivable distance should come, hang out, and meet up with Johnny Polygon and the gang. We’re looking at you, Kansas, illinois, Texas, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Colorado — it’s gunna be a crazy weekend. Come party with us.
We’re even brewing a daytime house on Sunday, the day after the festival ends so all the people traveling into town have a second chance to come and kick it, listen to new tunes and watch us screen print your new merch! Stay tuned for RSVP for the Sunday daytime party, but there’s no RSVP or tickets needed for the festival. See you there!
Yesterday, Johnny announced that he was making 60 CD copies of a new music project entitled Water Damage available for pre order (Ships March 16). 40 copies were already reserved by #johntourage subscribers. No track listing is available. In an hour all 100 copies were spoken for. We didn’t even save a copy for ourselves. A lot of people spoke up about missing out and it wasn’t too late to change the order with the manufacturer, so 100 more copies were made available. That’s it. No digital. Why? Because it’s an actual surprise. What kind of person spoils surprises? Get it now if you want to own this. These will be numbered.
All of the registered monthly #Johntourage members are getting the album along with some extras in a package and have already been considered. No need for those of you who are a part of the monthly #Johntourage to order again (unless you want 2 copies) if your account started or renews between Feb 21st and March 21st. As always, the monthly#Johntourage members have first dibbs on everything, which is why there are fewer of these available for everyone else. If you want to make sure you can always get what’s coming out before it sells out, join the team. There’s a fuckload of good shit dropping this spring/summer including another brand new album i love you, goodnight. If this is any indication, limited runs go quick. Thanks to the#Johntourage for making these projects possible.
But we didn’t stop there. We had time to continue on to Arizona for a last minute show. Some johntourage brought the whole fan through. For those who couldnt stay or get in due to their youngness, thanks for picking up merch out of the trunk!
After Johnny posted a picture with him laying on the love sick pillows I made for him, he got a ton of requests from people wanting a set for themselves. So for February, we decided to make the pillow cases a merch item for the Johntorage for February. For a very limited time, this item is available in the merch store.
It’s been sick seeing how people ended up styling these pillows in their homes. I had no idea how popular they’d be, but I ended up sewing all month! We know some people can’t commit to the monthly johntourage dues, so the pillows are being made available in the store as a one off for a limited time (for as long as I feel like sewing them).
Send us your pics, we want to see how you used them. Or, tweet @johnnypolygon or instagram @sirjohnpol #johntourage and
This was a really dope merch DIY project that allowed Johnny to touch every piece. Johnny Polygon prints, and I sew. I even got him to try a few stitches. Because of the Johntourage we’re able to explore new and exciting ways of transcribing the music visually. Thanks guys!
Thanks to the amazing response at the LA album preview & the awesome support of The Johntourage, I’ll be previewing my new album “I Love You, Goodnight.” live in Tempe, AZ Tuesday February 17th at the Yucca Tap Room. There’s no cover so bring money to buy shit. Show starts at 10 pm.
Just started working on the music videos for my upcoming album, I Love You, Goodnight. starting with this one, for my single, “The Fall” and decided to get this one out asap. Thanks for supporting the song, everyone. You can download it here if you haven’t already.
When challenged to evoke the holiday spirit, Johnny imagines dark times and sour notes. Let’s face it, Christmas sucks for a lot of people. Play it loud.
This Anti-Christmas song is the perfect addition to your “pre-family dinner” or “post family dinner escape plan” playlist. Other suggested uses: Give your partner a heads up that they aren’t getting anything nice this year.
THE WORST CHRISTMAS SONG EVER by Johnny Polygon
Co-written by Shellie Lewis
Produced by The Haunted
Christmas is here Its been a year Since you been gone
Times moving on I’m moving on Mrs St Nick please bless all my niggas cuz bitches ain’t shit & if I ain’t rich by Christmas fuck it ima go out like this Egg nog & whiskey she don’t miss me I sit back and reminisce I’ll be alone on December 25th but fuck it at least I’m saving money on gifts Last year when we were under a mistletoe You said a kiss is forever bit don’t remember though Fast forward my heart is torn and blood is low
The three words that saved my life : Fuck it though
For Christmas I wanna be over you
For Christmas I wanna be over you We’re done. I get it now. Trust me.
We’re done. I get it now. Trust me.
I used to watch you while you slept
I crept. I creep. Sneaky baby on some TLC.
Red light. Get some tree to get my head right. Yeah right.
You can blame it all on me just like you always do.
Its my fault for letting myself fall for you.
When life hands you lemons, don’t be surprised.
Just squirt that shit right back in that bitches eyes.
For Christmas I wanna be over you.
For Christmas I wanna be over you.
Bah humbug merry fucking Christmas.
