JUST KIDDING





Hey, so the whole lawsuit thing was real. I mean fake. It was fake. No one is suing us. It was a really elaborate April Fool's joke we thought up like maybe 48 hours ago. Thanks to Bob Shedd for helping us find a place to host the website, and Aaron Campbell for doing all the programming. Thanks to the Village Voice for being cool and basically becoming out blog-bff over the last few days. Special thanks to Much Music for putting us on TV to talk about it and all the blogs and news websites (you know who you are) who fell for it. Also thanks to the almost 400 people who signed up to the facebook group to support us and the people that wrote complaints to Thriller. We know now that if anything actually goes wrong with our band, we'll be able to not count on your support again since we punked you so hard this time. Please read the entire hilarious defamation court document we prepared at the bottom of this page.

The NOT fake part of this whole thing is even more crazy it might blow your mind - the entire original sxsw article that got linked and twittered all over the place (literally - I've been watching our feedjit thing 20 hours a day for the last 4 days, there was a guy on our blog from Ramallah yesterday), and this entire April Fool's joke was just to go viral with the newest FU project - you guess it - Thriller Energy Drinks. We thought hard about those revenue streams and how money that used to go towards buying records is now going to buy music-related products. So to us it makes complete sense to as a band, try and grab a bit of that stream - so we're gonna market our own diy, music oriented energy drink. Check out these rad flavours:


THRILL WAVE
Anti-Energy inspired by todays hottest bands. Do the cool with Thrill Wave, our slowest boost yet. Don't be fooled by the ultra fast pace of other energy boosts - Thrill Wave will have you in your seat contemplating your vibe for hours.


THRILL CAFFEINE
Now with 8 times the caffeine of other brands energy drinks. Need to write six exams at the same time, or just break the record for days without rest? This is the thrill for you. Lab tested to ensure Maximum Consciousness (TM) you won't be able to slow down!


SUPER ENERGY
Our most Energetific Thrill (TM), this can will rock your socks. Need to stay up all night and day studying for that big test, or just need to blast through a night at the worlds hippest clubs? Super Energy has twice the energy and twice the caffeine or our regular Thriller can. Bombs away!


THRILLER AIR COMPRESSED ENERGY
The loudest energy around. Blast this compressed air energy can into any party or club and hear the energy vibes pick up and blast off. This high intensity air horn will pack in the decibels as well as the energy molecules.


THRILL DIP
Need your energy where you can chew it? Take it slow - dip it! Our patended high energy formula now in dip form. Pull it out, pack it in, side back and enjoy the thrill. Your mouth will be tingling with intense energy.


FREEZE DRIED THRILLER
Don't have time to drink? Rub this energy infused power into your eyeballs, like they do in space! You'll feel like you can walk on air for the rest of your life. And you probably will!

Now that the hyper-marketing has started, we've also started production on these bad boys. Coming to a diy-record store near you this summer.

In my defence I was over acting to make it funnier afterwards that they still didnt even catch on. They also offered me a VJ gig. Also, whoever said I was a good actor anyways?

HATERS! SUCKAS!

Wow, what's with all the haters?!
It was a good prank, Ben's a HILARIOUS actor, FU kicked people's asses with this stunt and their songs are so dense and interesting.

If you're gonna talk shit, at least have the courtesy to put your name. Pussies.

Go back to your fake baby "punk" with it's "dense" songs.

Bah, thanks a lot for this. I totally sent a long-winded defense of you guys to dissuade these people. So yeah, you've got it right -- never again. Way to lose some real-deal fan support guys. Hope you're proud of this stupid stunt.

I want the airhorn energy.

But seriously, all the energy-drink sponsored music festival stuff is on a much smaller scale here in Australia, so I read with curiosity and a bit of disbelief anyway. I generally avoid music festivals and events that are sponsored by companies like Monster, V, or Coca Cola. The last Soundwave line-up was just a bit too awesome to miss out on though.

I'm just going to keep drinking coffee though, sorry guys.
