FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Squanky Kong's Imminent Insurrection Is Here.
Squanky Kong releases the new extended play record “Imminent Resurrection” on October 13th.
Imminent Insurrection is the first new music from Squanky Kong released since the 2008 independent
album debut,”Under a Raven's Review”. The record introduces a new lead vocalist Joseph Michael
working with SK mastermind James M. House. As with previous releases, House is playing all the guitar
and bass instrumentation with the studio work. House brought on LA drummer Lamar Little in 2014 to put
down the rhythm tracks. There are also keyboard contributions on a song by longtime friend Joseph
Wooten (Steve Miller Band and Victor Wooten Band), whom was also featured on the 2008 album.
Squanky Kong is described as Hybrid Rock with influences across a broad range of the Rock genre, infused
with hints of Jazz, Funk, Classical, Blues, Reggae, EDM, and more. It is not a typical rock band. It is a
work of House acting as composer, producer, and performer, more reminiscent of leaders of the Big Band
Era or avant-garde artists like Frank Zappa.
Previously only a product of studio productions, House has been working in Los Angeles this past year to
put together some form of live show, likely with a 5-6 piece band including himself switching between
guitar and bass. Squanky Kong has seen a fast growing fanbase online with social media so far, despite not
having a live band, or fresh material for years, Facebook likes having surpassed 77,000 recently.
This release marks the first of many milestones in further developing Squanky Kong both as an artistic
endeavor and as a business. It will be joined with the upcoming live shows, and eventually music videos,
new merchandise, and other materials. House is now focusing on building up his team, interested in
delegating management and possibly partnering up with another label, current running everything on his
independent label under Squank Entertainment. A long-term goal for House is to use his background in
business to start a private investment campaign to gather additional funding. He is confident that even in
the rough economic climate in the music business, there is a market to make Squanky Kong a profitable
and self-sustaining endeavor. He stresses it is just a matter of getting the right momentum to engage the
bustling international market and further develop the music and music brand.
“The music business has become a new game, and no one really knows the rules yet. It is time for artists to start
thinking out-of-the-box as we roll the dice.”, says House.
