Everyone know’s Bobby Bones and the Raging Idiots. The comedy pair have been selling out shows all over and have gained tons of fans worldwide. However, now they are looking to expand those fans to little people..;.that’s right, children. Black River Entertainment duo The Raging Idiots have announced their EP titled The Raging Idiots Presents – The Raging Kidiots available on November 20th.
“The Raging Idiots is about spreading positivity and this EP reinforces that message to kids and parents too. The songs on this EP really touch on what’s important to us: be what you want to be, be nice to others, have fun in learning, and be proud of who you are as an individual.”
In an exclusive interview with Bobby & Eddie, Bones explains the reasoning behind wanting to make a children’s album.
“Eddie is a dad and we thought, ‘man what if we did positive messages through music.’ We wanted to make music that had a positive message and wasn’t just boring music. It’s a mixture of what I would want to hear if I was a kid, and while asking OK how can I learn? I wanted it to be cool for the kids and not something they would be bored with.”
Bones says that it was pretty easy coming up with the songs.
“Collectively we figured it out. Every song has a different path. ‘The Planet Song’ came about so the kids can learn the song and accidentally learn the planets, it was more of a teaching tool. ‘Be Nice’ was just a general life lesson. ‘The Ballad of Big Head Bobby’ was literally my life growing up. I didn’t quite fit in but I wanted the message to be that weird is cool and embrace your weirdness. We had a different lane for each song”
The duo says they don’t really feel more responsibility now that they made a children’s album. Eddie says being a dad made the entire process worthwhile.
“There is no greater responsibility than being a parent. To me this goes hand in hand. This is a no-brainer because I am a dad and it’s home to me. It’s not additional pressure, it’s just something we do, but as a parent dealing with children is tough. It’s a hard thing to do and to see my kids grow up is a long-term thing, but this is a short-term thing and we want to inspire kids in one punch. It’s one try to make kids happy and entertain them and teach them something in one try.”
Although Bones isn’t a father, yet, he is open to the idea, and shockingly knows exactly what he would name his child.
“Bobby Jr. for sure. Boy or girl. That way I can remember. It’s easy and you know I don’t even have a wife yet so If anyone is interested…tweet me up!”
The six track EP is filled with positivity, inspiration and educational messages. It should be every parent’s go to guide. It has tracks such as “When I Grow Up” and “Be Nice” which display a very approving message of morality. Then you have the educational tracks such as “The Planet Song” and “People In America.”
There is no denying that music is powerful and for parents like myself who live a life with a special needs child, it’s admirable to hear this album. A child like mine can really relate to music as I’m sure most do. If one of these songs can help a child learn something, well then that’s the most important element. The Raging Idiots have really amazed me with their hard work and dedication to this project. The Raging Idiots Presents – The Raging Kidiots is a very commendable album filled with lessons of life and knowledge that we all can learn from.
Fans may also hear songs from The Raging Idiots Presents – The Raging Kidiots on the Bobby Bones Kids Channel on iHeartRadio Family, a new streaming music and storytelling app designed specifically for families with kids ages 4 through 11. The free app is now available for smartphones and tablets in the iOS App Store, Google Play Store and Amazon Appstore.
