The 4TH Visual Single from "CRAZYTOWN" has been released
today via the official websites of the band and the project website as well as Youtube and other major services. The song is the controversial "Worms" written by Ryan Kralik & The Hung White Ponies and directed by Jason Lane Wooten and Ryan Kralik. This song has gotten some exciting reviews already and has been cited as being "dauntingly 'wall-esque' but not nearly as tame". We're pleased to announce this release, the directorial debut of Jason Lane Wooten, a Native American visual artist and musician who has worked closely with Ryan & HWP in recent years. The song's central theme brings into question US Drug Policy, an issue of which Kralik & Wooten have both been critical in the past. 100% of the proceeds from digital sales of the "Worms" single will benefit The Drug Policy Board, an awareness group that advocates for fair drug policy and even enforcement of responsible drug laws and review of laws that have come into clear question.

(FROM PRESS RELEASE)
In classic Neil Young style, Ryan Kralik announced today that he'll be releasing an album and film combination in late 2012 entitled "Crazytown". Kralik said that, to his knowledge, this exact type of project has not been attempted before. "You can play 'Dark Side Of The Moon' along with 'The Wizard of Oz' and some weird stuff happens but it's coincidence and Neil Young has done some similar stuff like 'Greendale' or even 'Living With War' but this is a film thats accompanied by an album and it's an album thats accompanied by a film. Each one is good by itself and together its good and different. I cannot wait to see people's reactions to this"
In 2011 Kralik released "No Agenda" a concept album that saw such contributors as Dave Krusen (Pearl Jam/Candlebox) and Rick Rosas (Neil Young Band/Joe Walsh) who have been in the studio this year with Kralik and are likely to have contributions to this project as well. Kralik says lots more information will be released over the summer with the first single and video set to release in July. More information is available at www.ryankralik.com and at the projects dedicated website www.crazytownlooklisten.com
