But now somebody does not feel at ease.

When bards hit the road, they write traveling tunes on their journey, and that's exactly what we did in this special edition of BomBARDed! We set out from Texas to GEXCon in Virginia this past September, and we chronicled our trip by writing and recording a song for each state we passed through along the way (six songs in all). So buckle your seatbelt, grab your snacks, and sit back and enjoy some bards on board as we play our way across the country!
We're also doing a giveaway next episode, so tune in for details on how to enter!

We hope you enjoy and thanks for listening!

Big news - We're all going to be at GEXCON from August 31 - September 2! There are going to be a few events that we're taking part in over the weekend, and if you'd like to come and say hi to us, we're hosting a little get-together in one of the ballrooms late Saturday afternoon. We'll be posting more deatils as the date draws closer, but for up-to-date info, follow us on social media at @bombardedcast and check out GEXCON's website.
Spurrier's Back and ready for action! No time to celebrate though - the bards are face-to-face with an extraterrestrial brain with untold power. Add Squid and a few Gils into the mix, and it’s a recipe for trouble. Can Chaos Sauce bring the heat in this kitchen? Listen in to find out!

IMPORTANT UPDATE - on the way to record Episode 20 with us, Spurrier was involved in a car accident. Thankfully he and everyone who was in the wreck are ok, but Spurrier did fracture his clavicle (collarbone) as a result of all the craziness. He's resting and recovering at home for the time being, and we wanted to let everyone know that he is going to be alright, but that Episode 20 will be a little late. In this announcement-type episode we've made though, we do a SONG OF REST for Spurrier in order to hopefully speed up his healing, so give it a listen!
We do have some good news to go along with the not-so-good news. Our website is finally finshed and ready for action! bombardedcast.com has info about the show, merch, and a whole lot of other goodies waiting for ya, so check it out!
We also do a Mad Libs and perform it as Yashee, Raz'ul, and Splash. It wound up being pretty fun! Anyways, thanks for your patience and if you'd like to send Spurrier a message on the ol social media, you can reach him at @basser26 on Twitter.
*EDIT* (July 30, 2018) The bardlibs that we did over the past few weeks are now on our bandcamp page ( http://bombarded.bandcamp.com ) instead of in the feed so that the story won't be broken up so much. You can listen to AND download both the individual songs from the episodes as well as the full episodes there, so feel free to check them out if you're itching for those good ol bardlibs!
LAST THING - if you want to join the bomBARDed discord, hit up @manamogen on Twitter and she'll hook you up!
A wild Squid appears! Do you: Fight? Run? Sing? Dance? Scream while they tear apart your very reality and feast on the grey matter inside your dome? Well, we may just find out!

Chaos Sauce investigates some sleeping problems, learn a little more about the night the meteorite struck, and finally make their way across the desert to the impact site.

After some investigation, the bards hit the hay and then have a hot start to the day...and then must forge an unlikely alliance to help save Basom - all before supper!
Having finally arrived in Basom, our trio gets the scoop on how the meteor has effected the town, and they also get a chance to help another fellow bard to blossom!
Hard times are falling on our bards, but hopefully nothing else hard falls on them as they try to escape the collapsing ruins around them!
Our bards and Symbol (Splash) are in a pickle now that one of their own has been captured. Surely we can just talk things out, right? Well, you know it’s never that easy...and don’t call me Shirley.
After their last encounter, the bards are back on the road to Basom. But before stopping, they gain a little insight into their ensemble, and then step right out into the next chapter of their bardic tale.
Our bards are making their way to Basom to investigate the site where the meteor crashed. The prospect of a new adventure at this spot is exciting, but first they have to get there.
Before we jump back into the regular storyline, we thought we would take an episode to look to the future of bomBARDed, write a random song for all of you, and recap all of the action that has happened thus far. Also, it's a bit crazy this time of year for all of us, and we wanted to make sure we had enough time to dive back in properly. We hope you enjoy taking a moment to reflect, jam, and recap with us, and THANK YOU so much for all of the support you've given us as we've embarked on this musical journey. We truly appreciate it and love you all dearly. The next episode will be out on January 9th, 2018. See you then!

Back at Strumlotts and ready to explore, the bards rest up, fuel up, and practice up with some familiar and not-so-familiar aquaintences.
