STUCK MOJO guitarist and songwriter Rich "The Duke" Ward will appear on the Fox Radio Network (FNC) at approximately 7:10 p.m. EST this evening (Tuesday, December 19) on John Gibson's "The Big Story" to discuss the song/video "Open Season" from the new STUCK MOJO album "Southern Born Killers".To listen, click on this link and choose the "Listen Live" button. With "Open Season", STUCK MOJO has taken a stand against the current, global jihad being waged by violent, Islamic extremists. This war is not only against America or Western Civilization, but against anyone who does not agree with their interpretation of their religion. The message of the song is perfectly clear — jihadists in America will not be tolerated. The video for "Open Season" caused a stir among fans when it was apparently blocked, without notification, from appearing in the "Most Viewed" listings on YouTube despite its view count warranting a spot on the list. This censorship allegedly continues (as of Dec. 18, 2006) as witnessed by the fact that the video was viewed over 6,000 times during the day but still does not appear in the top 100 "Most Viewed" chart. (#100 has 1,200 views for reference.) You can view the video at YouTube here. In a bold move, STUCK MOJO released the entire "Southern Born Killers" album, absolutely free for download last week via their web site at www.StuckMojoMedia.com. The response has been overwhelming both in terms of sheer number of tracks downloaded as well as people purchasing a hard-copy of the album directly from the band to show their support. The limited-edition CD is numbered and signed by the band and it includes a bonus DVD with the "Open Season" video, a feature on the making of the video, an interview and more. At the web site above, Rich Ward also explains the rationale behind making the CD available freely for download. According to a press release, the strong message of "Open Season" initially prompted some people to immediately dismiss is as being anti-Muslim "which it is certainly not. It is anti-jihadist. Period." The full lyrics to the entire "Southern Born Killers" album can be found at this location. Lastly, you can find a message directly from Rich Ward explaining the message behind "Open Season" and why it had to be written at this location.
