Sybris' new EP, “Voyage of the Stag Party"--released with assistance of Floyd Global Industries--is also a classic era D&D-style adventure module. For the past 6 years, members of Sybris and brewers from Three Floyds Brewing have gotten together almost every Friday night (barring touring or work duties) to gather in a smoky garage or around a customized game table to play the classic role-playing game, Dungeons and Dragons. When Sybris started writing a D&D inspired song, "Critically in Love," the idea to release the song as part of an adventure was born.
To commemorate this hobby-turned-lifestyle, the adventuring party–known as The Endless Wastes–are releasing a special edition limited EP. The seven inch vinyl record contains three Sybris songs: “Stag Party” and “Boots of Gold” recorded by Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Pelican, Yakuza), and “Critically in Love” recorded by Mike Lust (Bible of the Devil, Urge Overkill, Tight Phantomz) at one of the last sessions at the now defunct Phantom Manor. The third song, “Critically in Love” is a love song told entirely in D&D jargon. Download codes for digital masters of all three songs are also included.
The EP jacket is actually a “retro-clone” adventure module: “The Voyage of The Stag Party”, complete with maps and pre-rolled characters. The adventure, written by Chad Troutman with members Phil Naumann and Shawn Podgurski of Sybris, contains several tongue-in-cheek references to both Sybris and Three Floyds and is based on the songs “Stag Party” and “Boots of Gold.” The adventure features cover art by fantasy artist Stephen Poag, back cover art by Kill Hatsumomo’s Erin Page, and interior cover art by Jason Naumann with interior art by Ben Naumann and Zachary Baker.
Includes immediate download of 3-track album in the high-quality format of your choice (MP3, FLAC, and more), plus unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app.
