Welcome to World 2 available for online purchasing!

After a bit of a delay, we finally have online ordering available to those of you within the US (and maybe outside the country, still figuring out logistics and all)!

Just head straight over to the official Welcome to World 2 website at gamemusic4all.com/wtw2 to order the album, see what bands and songs are on it, read the liner notes provided by many of the bands, and even download 8 exclusive free songs! To get the album, a minimum donation of US $7 is required, but a donation of $12 or above will get you both the Welcome to World 2 album, as well as the Music EXP album, which is also for online sale!

Check out the Music EXP website at gamemusic4all.com/musicexp.

You can peruse the Music EXP site for a couple free b-sides from this album as well! Music EXP is our first anniversary compilation and still includes many songs only available on that CD. This one also retails for a donation of $7, but as I said before, $12 gets you both albums together!

A ton of wonderful musicians and artists have worked extremely hard on these albums and it truly shows! Thank you in advance to anyone who donates to receive an album!

Getting ready for Nerdapalooza South East

So looks like I am heading out tomorrow to partake in the festivities known as Nerdapalooza. An event taking place in Florida this July 4th and 5th. If you are in the area, you really have no choice but to attend!

Anyway, I'm just about all packed up. But before I head out I figured why not let you take a look at what I have been up to!

This is the case of our brand new compilation, Welcome to World 2 which celebrates our second anniversary as a website! Nerdapalooza is going to be the place of this compilations launch (although we are throwing our official launch party soon)! Artwork is by the amazing Jay Tholen, to which I give many props to. I'm busy burning more copies of the album as I write this in fact. I should have about 30-40 copies of the album to sell at Nerdapalooza. They are going to go for five bucks each for interested parties. And don't fret folks who won't be at NaP SE, the album should be going up for online sale shortly after I return home!

Also, WtW2 won't be the only compilation I'll be selling out there.
That's right! I will also have copies of our first anniversary compilation Music EXP for sale, as well as a handful of pressed Here Comes a New Challenger CD's. Both of which will also be going for five bucks each.

And finally, for those looking to represent GM4A in style (or just stick things on your friends stuff to bug them) we'll have plenty of stickers to get out to you fine folks!
This will probably be my last post from home, but expect sporadic Nerdapalooza updates throught the rest of the week!

Music EXP Compilation Update 5. This one's HUGE!

Alright, so we now have EVERY SINGLE band on the upcoming Music EXP album confirmed. We have a whopping SIX more bands to announce for the compilation. Thus bringing the final compilation song total to 24 tracks! Can you believe it? 24 incredible tracks by 24 incredible artists. Many of which are exclusive to this compilation!

Let's announce the final six incredible bands for the compilation now shall we? First off is one of the most amazing bands I have ever heard, these folks take their musicianship very seriously and it shows with their incredible solo's and musical prowess. I am glad to announce The Kode is now on the compilation! The next group also has some amazing musicianship going on, and are actually contributing their very first studio recorded track to our album, (of which you can also get a sneak peak at their website). I am very happy to introduce our good pals Armcannon! Next is a group who is very close to our little website, the rockingest band in a very non-rock genre, Push Start is now confirmed for the compilation!

That's three down and three more to go! Alright, next up is the ever impressive Animal Style, who is helping hold down the chiptune side of this compilation. Another band holding down the chiptune fort is Sacramento, CA based duo Two Playa Game! Finally, the last band to be confirmed, the amazing mash up of chiptunes and hip hop, Super Barrio Brothers!

Now, finally, I am very excited to announce the entire line-up of bands and artists on Game Music 4 All's very first compilation, Music EXP.

Next up are astounding Los Angeles based musicians The Megas, who are well known for their rockin' ballads of the Blue Bomber. Finally, hailing all the way from Greece, GM4A's great new pals, Videogame Orchestra, who gave us a very special song which we can not wait to debut. Are we excited yet? Yes, yes we are.
