March Band of the Month!

They've just released a new EP, so Band of the Month for March 2008 is video game rock band Spheres of Chaos. Here's a little more about them:

"Formed in high school in 2005, Spheres of Chaos is Michael Cook, Alex Fenwick, Joe Heffer and Joe Allen - 4 dudes combining a love for video games and rock music. Taking their name from a space shooter for the Acorn Archimedes, SoC utilise guitars, bass, drums and 8-bit sampling, playing live shows around their hometown of Sheffield. The band write original music that embodies the feel of video games, as well as playing the occasional video game cover. "

You can download the new EP, Stratospheria at Pterodactyl Squad for free.

"Embark on a new quest in Stratospheria, the second release from video game rock band Spheres of Chaos. Set off at the breakneck speed of Twilight To Midnight, before moving into the brooding saga of The Citadel; then marvel at the power of the Megafauna, before voyaging upward in Skyward. Spanning styles and sentiments, a journey of adventure, imagination and story-telling awaits."

Also, look out for a Spheres of Chaos track on the upcoming GM4A compilation Here Comes A New Challenger.

New Band of the Month, Castlevania: PoR pre-order bonus update, West Coast Video Armageddon, Push Start shirts

New Band of the Month today, yes, you heard right. I have decided to push this feature from weekly to monthly so that each band can get more exposure and I can be able to update it on time. Anyway, the band of the month for November is good and loyal folks Push Start.
Quick update on the Castlevania pre-orders. Now the pre-order is a nice exclusive bundle which both EB/Gamestop as well as Gamecrazy are giving away. This pack now includes the game (of course), the aforementioned soundtrack, extendable stylus, game case, and double-sided poster. so if you were on the fence before, this may tip the scale towards a purchase.

After two amazing, and highly successful Video Armageddon shows on the east coast, that magic is coming over to the west coast this December 15th. Bands that are playing are Push Start, The Mario Opera, Quarter-Circle Jab, The Megas, 8-Bit Weapon, and ComputeHer. The concert is being held at CIA in Hollywood, Ca. more details as the date approaches.
There just seems to be no end to Push Start related news. This time it’s about new Push Start T-shirts (observe below). These fine shirts are $12 with $3 S&H, which comes to a reasonable 15 bucks. Though some people don’t have 15 bucks to spend since they are saving up for certain video game systems (that’s a free swag request Leo!)

PS - Sorry about the recent lack of updates, school is a force to be reckoned with, but with midterms over I can finally get back to what’s really important, getting that VG music news to the people! Oh yeah, and check out the forums!

New Band of the Week section, Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin pre-order bonus

Finally I have gotten off my lazy ass and gotten to work on a new section of the site. It’s called Band of the Week and is currently in it’s formative stages. It is up and running though, and the first band of the week is My Parent’s Favorite Music! Check out the new section and let me know what you think about it (preferably sign up in the forums and tell me about it there)! Also I have gotten word from facundo that if you pre-order the upcoming Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin for the DS from Gamestop/EB then you also get a “Castlevania 20th Anniversary Soundtrack music CD” along with it. As facundo put’s it, “This is more than just news. This is amazing!”
