> What is Arockalypse?
Arockalypse

My name is Chris Bray. Arockalypse and the Amazing Trans-Metropolitans (ATM for short) is my rock and roll vanity plate.

It's dirty fetishists and phylacterists. It's the imagined future of my childhood -- dymaxion homes, domed cities, jet packs and astronaut ice cream. It's lovebot, pornbot, killbot, zenbot. It's love me, hold me, fuck me, pay me.

It's also an excuse to put on makeup, wear awesome shoes, and thrash around with a guitar like an idiot.

The name Trans-Metropolitans is lifted directly from a comic book called Transmetropolitan written by Warren Ellis and illustrated by Darick Robertson. You should read the shit out of it.

> The Ark

I released a record entitled The Ark in 2004. You can listen to tracks on this site, and you can buy the entire thing here.

At some point I plan on releasing a second record. Maybe I'll skip it and jump straight to the third. Sophomore efforts are usually garbage anyway.

> Love me, hate me

Among those who typically enjoy my music are other musicians, proto-culturalists and teenage girls who like to cut themselves.

Among those who do not like my music are my relatives, my neighbors, my ex-girlfriends and music industry executives.

> Band

Although I write and record all the music myself, there is a live band that exists to make me look more talented than I actually am. Look how pretty they are.

The band is on again, off again. Mostly off these days.

I wish my band were light switches.

These days they involve themselves in other things. Here are some links to those things:
