The Whomping Willows: 1975 (Album Restoration)
HUGE NEWS: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry recently invited me to the opening of a time capsule that was originally assembled and hidden away in 1975. Headmistress Minerva McGonagall had received a tip from the Whomping Willow that the time capsule contained something that might interest me. So, I went to Hogwarts. And it was awesome.
The opening of the time capsule revealed an incredible surprise: A demo tape in a shoddy case, labeled “Whomping Willows Demos - 1975”! After some light prodding, the sneaky magical tree revealed that the demo tape was in fact a full album, revolving around Marauders-era events and recorded in 1975!
After an emotional meeting, the Whomping Willow granted me permission to restore the album, convert it to contemporary digital format, and release it on my DIY record label, Cheap Rent Records. But in order to do this, I NEED YOUR HELP!
This entire process will be very expensive, so I need to raise funds to cover the costs. I’ve created a series of amazing rewards that you’ll receive in exchange for your donation! Please check them out over at the project’s Kickstarter page!

House of Awesome Headquarters Is Relocating!
Friends! Lauren and I will be moving out of Woonsocket and (hopefully) to our desired neighborhood of Edgewood in Cranston, RI. We’re hoping the fresh and friendly surroundings of an artistically inclined community like Edgewood will inspire us to write better songs, film better vlogs, and live a better life overall.
First, we have to worry about the process of moving. We have a TON of stuff to move, and as a result we’re planning to donate a lot of clothes to the Salvation Army, sell off some musical equipment and other valuables that we no longer need, and (hopefully!) unload some wizard merch via our Relocation Sale!
Lauren and I both have decided to offer a 20% discount on our entire merch lineup. Here is a link to my store. And here is a link to Lauren’s store. When checking out, click on the little link that says “enter discount code” and enter ‘moving’ into the discount code field. Super easy!
As always, we truly appreciate your support — not only will your purchase help reduce our moving load, but it’ll also help us pay the rent! :D
Matt (and Lauren)
