QR code flyers

Want to spread the Facebook page offline? We made a somewhat nerdy, somewhat mysterious QR code flyer that you can print out, cut out, and leave everywhere that might attract attention! Zelda lovers, Nintendo addicts, and curious weirdos alike will take out their smart phone, scan this code, and it will send them straight to our Facebook page! Nifty, eh? Just click on the image above or click here to download the Facebook QR code flyer.

Please note: Whether you're cutting these out yourself or making the copy shop do it – Starting in the top-left corner, you cut every 2.75 inches. This will leave you with exactly 12 square, 2.75" flyers per sheet. Spread 'em all around!

 

And there you have it, challenge 30 of The March of Scrubs is complete! Stay tuned for more fresh updates about other independent artists at different times today, and thank you so much for promoting. Much love to all of our Scrubby family out there!

Day 29 Challenge

There is no featured artist today. Instead, we are showcasing our "Noncents" volumes – Collections of unreleased tracks, rare audio, singles, and other special files from our current and past artists that were never put on our main albums.

Noncents Volumes from Scrub Club Records

If you're the ultimate Scrub Club collector or that sounds like your kind of thing, please click right here to download all 12 mixed Noncents and all 5 artist-specific Noncents albums!

 

And now, your mission awaits:

Today is Outreach Day! Here's what we would love for you to do:

1. You already know about Scrub Club Records and their mission, and over the past month, you've let all your friends (and even complete strangers) know all about us. Today is a different kind of outreach, but equally important.

2. We want you to go out there and introduce us and our unique way of doing things to other outlets – Link us to other musicians you enjoy that you would love to hear them collaborate with us, no matter their popularity level. Contact great visual artists that you watch that might be down to help donate some art to our cause. Send tips, messages, and emails to your favorite sites and blogs that could get us a greater amount of exposure. Hit up your favorite podcasts and tell them it would be awesome to get us on there for an interview or guest host. Encourage your online and college radio-type stations to play our music. Place our flyers, stickers, stencils, or your own custom signs in public places with a link to our site. Toss some Scrub Club tracks into Turntable FM and other likewise sites. Send a message to your buddies on XBox Live to check out our page. The sky is literally the limit (unless you know some astronauts)!

3. That's it! The main goal is to spread like wildfire in new places, to reach new listeners, make new friends, and eventually gain new Scrub Club family.

 

And there you have it, challenge 29 of The March of Scrubs is complete! Stay tuned for more fresh updates 

“New Game”

Methods has been working on this project for a full year, and the polish shows. It's easily some of the best UM material there is.

It mixes electronic elements that are sometimes pure and sometimes glitchy with occasional guitar riffs and haunting piano. Since there are no vocals on the entire album, it's up to your ears and brain to come up with the true meaning behind the music.

Even without words, it's easy to pick up on the adventure of it all – Each track feels like an emotional journey, a video game sound track to your actual life. If you dig this release, be on the lookout for "New Game+" which features vocals by Untested Methods and guests as a bonus.

 

Day 28 Challenge

Before we get to today's challenge, the twenty eighth mission of the March of Scrubs, let's check out the artist spotlight for today, March 28th: Untesteed Methods.

Untested Methods of Scrub Club Records

Born and raised in New Orleans, Untested Methods is a musical project that combines a love for all things geeky and nerdy with electronic music.

Inspired by acts such as Pig, NIN, Celldweller, and many other electronic hybrid artists, Untested Methods enjoys bouncing from various genres. Focusing primarily on dirty basslines and distorted synths, the music is a mix of Synth Pop, Industrial, Dubstep, Drum and Bass, and more. Untested Methods is here to create a varied experience that keeps your head nodding and feet moving.

For social info and to download his 8 solo albums and 3 featured albums for free, click right here.

 

And now, your mission awaits:

Today begins the Burst Nexus RPG Contest! Here's what we would love for you to do:

1. Did you know we host a super-oldschool, text-based, multiplayer, online RPG here at Scrub Club Records? Well, it's called "Burst Nexus," and today, we all start adventuring (and slaying each other) together! Even some Scrub Club artists will be fighting alongside you… or chopping your limbs off. You know, whateva.

A typical battle in Burst Nexus...

2. Go here for a quick start guide and to access the game to create your character.

3. Explore the amazing city of Amalgam – A place stuck in all time periods at once that mashes together characters and locations from comics, video games, science fiction, fantasy, and more.

4. Use the quick start guide to figure out the best methods of survival and exploration in the first few days. You will eventually learn how to play your best (probably the hard way).

5. This is an official campaign tournament! Your mission? To kill the vile creature in the forest known as Kabuto, and destroy any other player that gets in your way. The first player to defeat him 4 times wins the tournament!

6. The winner receives not only 6 months worth of Dimes Club membership, but also a copy of Super Munchkin with the Narrow S-Cape expansion!

7. This one's for the hardcore gamers out there – It will take about 45-60 days for a champion to emerge, and the only way you'll come out on top is if you log in almost every single day. It's going to be brutal!

 

And there you have it, challenge 28 of The March of Scrubs is complete! Stay tuned for more fresh updates about Untested Methods at different times today, and thank you so much for promoting. Much love to all of our Scrubby family out there!
