8 bit weapon limited release available now

8 Bit Weapon's latest album "Vaporware Soundtracks" was composed and performed using some fun toys like vintage video game consoles (including Classic Nintendo Gameboys, Commodore 64 & 128), synthesizers, old electronics, and a live drumset. It features over an hour of original tunes inspired by the music from old 8-bit video games as well as electronic music from the 70s and 80s, with a dash of rockin' drums. Though 8BW is known for their instrumental tracks, this album contains 3 songs with vocals.

Only 500 copies of this limited edition version of the album were made and are each hand numbered and packaged inside of an old 5.25" floppy disk. Comes in a white floppy disk sleeve that has the track listing on the back. This limited edition version also contains 2 bonus "demo" tracks that will not be included on the standard version of this album.

8 Bit Weapon is a musical duo that specializes in creating modern music using classic video game consoles, vintage synthesizers, and obsolete computers. Seth and Stacey have performed across 2 continents with their arsenal of 8 bit weapons, to include but not limited to: Commodore 64 & 128, a couple Nintendo Gameboy classics, Intellivision synthesizer, Suzuki Omnichord, hybrid lo-fi acoustic-electric drums, and an assortment of other vintage and toy synthesizers.

You can order it from their site via Paypal. Remember, only 500 copies.
