One Billion Percent More Guitar Riffs

Hot on the heels of his wildly successful 3-disc 555% PledgeMusic project, Ginger has announced two new projects, also exclusively available on PledgeMusic — Mutation and Hey! Hello!

Mutation promises to be an ultra-heavy, riff-laden project with many guest appearances. The first album Mutation: The Frankenstein Effect was recorded in early 2011 but was set aside until now, I would assume due to lack of funds. Recording for a second album, as yet unnamed, began in May 2012 and will continue over the upcoming months.

Hey! Hello! is a new noise-pop project with Victoria Liedtke, who was also a part of the 555% project. Ginger will play guitar, bass, and drums on the album and will share the vocal duties. Victoria is currently recording her vocals, and the album should be mixed and mastered by November. Here’s what Ginger has to say about this one:

Expect big choruses, big (noisy) guitars and big smiles.

Big smiles indeed if Victoria’s contribution to this is anything like her work on 555%. And just like with his last PledgeMusic effort, Ginger reached the goal for this project in only 2 hours, and at this time, it is at almost 350% of its target. It should be interesting to see how high this one goes.

All albums from both projects are exclusive to this PledgeMusic campaign, and there are several different package options for each project, so go make your pledge today.

What’s the point going over your mistakes?
Gotta make ’em
To not repeat ’em
You gotta give yourself a break

Ginger Wildheart - “Forget About It”

The new video for “Forget About It” shows Ginger and friends performing, hamming it up, and generally having lots of fun on the recent June 2012 Japanese tour. This track opens Ginger’s record-setting—and quite excellent—3-disc PledgeMusic project 555%, but it also kicks off the shorter, 1-disc commercial release of the 100% album that was made available to the general public today.

100% contains the top 12 of the 30 available 555% tracks as voted on by the pledgers of the project. You should be able to find it at any of your favorite music retailers, such as Amazon (hint, hint) or iTunes. Some of my favorite tracks didn’t make it onto the release, but it’s still a fantastic album. The tracklisting goes a little something like this:

  1. Forget About It
  2. Internal Radio
  3. Lover It’ll all Work Out
  4. You’re The One, You’re The One, Yeah, I Know You’re The One, You’re The One (Yeah, I Know You’re The One)
  5. It Appears That The Party Is Over
  6. Taste Aversion
  7. Another Spinning F*cking Rainbow
  8. Just Another Song About Someone
  9. Westward Ho! (A New Reputation)
  10. Beautifully, Blissfully Unsettled
  11. We’ve Been Expecting You
  12. Time

And if you don’t mind not having physical media, you can still grab the full 555% release over at PledgeMusic. I would highly recommend it.

Ginger Wildheart - “Powderkeg” (555%)

And then the crack of thunder drags intention to the ground.
And when the weak are stunned they see only danger all around.

Eargasm. Again.

Ginger Wildheart - “Beautifully, Blissfully Unsettled” (555%)

I feel unsettled, unhappy, unable to deal
with the commotion and emotion of the motion I feel.
A little bitter, I sit here, the quitter in me,
and he is troubled, unstable and unable to be.


The air rains heavy like a gun
A weight that crushes conversation
In frozen flesh and bone
We share this bed alone
Ginger Wildheart - “Silence” (555%, 2012)
Hallelujah! Eureka!
You reek of the cheap alternative
Ginger Wildheart - “There Is Something Wrong With My Mind” (555%, 2012)
Now, I can see later
It was a brilliantly successful failure

My favorite song so far off the first set of Ginger’s 555% triple-disc PledgeMusic project
