MC Lars, the original Post Punk Laptop Rapper returns with This Giant Robot Kills. The title is from a meeting MC Lars had with his musical idol, the legendary Wesley Willis, who told him “Lars Horris! I like your songs, I’ll write a song about you. I’ll probably write it on my next rock ‘n’ roll record, which is called ‘This Gigantic Robot Kills’.” Willis died soon thereafter, and Lars decided to dedicate his new album to Wesley’s memory by naming it after that unfinished album.
To complete T.G.R.K., MC Lars also called on Weird Al, members of Wheatus, Simple Plan, Suburban Legends, The Aquabats, Cobra Starship, The Donnas, Parry Gripp, Paul Gilbert, Jesse Dangerously, Amie Miriello, Jonathan Coulton, K. Flay, The Former Fat Boys, his tour mates MC Frontalot and YT Cracker and more. MC Lars has toured extensively for the last three years creating a solid fanbase the old fashioned way, with a great live show. He has opened for the likes of Bowling For Soup, Gym Class Heroes, Bayside, Streetlight Manifesto, Simple Plan, Say Anything and much more. Many songs from This Giant Robot Kills have been road tested and are already fan favorites!
