The Clusterfuck Theory is the solo project of Punknews' own Staffer Sean. The project just released its debut LP, Alone Again. Staffer Sean released a statement: "I got real sad for a few months and wrote a few songs about how existence is lonely and pointless, but also it's not because shit matters sometimes. All of this was made in GarageBand and recorded with an old Blue Snowball microphone in my dorm's practice rooms so if it sounds bad (which it does) that's probably because I have no idea what I'm doing. Kinda hate these songs a little bit now cuz I've heard them so much. If you like em, sick, but expect new better music ASAP." Check it out below.
