Chapter 2 of Illinois’ ‘The Adventures of Kid Catastrophe’ continues the day-in-the-life occurrences of our hero. In this episode, called ‘Arch Sees an Illinois Video on TV,’ Arch indeed sees an Illinois video on TV. Only the video hits a little too close to home. An allegorical replay of relationships past, replete with all the bumps and bruises therein. Then, the real knockout blow: Will it send Arch over the edge? Stay tuned to find out…

As promised, each chapter of the short film comes with a 3-song ep. The songs this month are a bit more seething than the last batch, but the gentle, bewildered ‘Where’s My Woman’ paints a vivid portrait of a man emotionally abandoned – left to figure out for himself how to navigate the threshold between vulnerability and outright heartbreak. The track listing for the second installment is as follows:

‘The Adventures of Kid Catastrophe’ Chapter Two:
1) She’s So Blonde
2) Where’s My Woman
3) I Hate Love (iTunes Exclusive)
Film: ‘Arch Sees an Illinois Video on TV’

Physical copies of the Kid Catastrophe project will be available via custom USB flash drive for $10. Chapters 1 & 2 will be pre-loaded, with subsequent chapters available FREE at download stations set up at any of the band’s record release shows.
