Powerglove to release Japan exclusive release "TV Game Metal" on Marquee/Avalon containing remixed and rerecorded older material

It's been a long time, loyal compatriots. All the children of Glovetopia are rejoicing in the streets, for our infectious nerd-cloud has begun to spread over the Pacific Ocean like a magnificent nostalgia plague!

We're proud to announce our first Japanese release with Marquee/Avalon, simply titled, "TV Game Metal." To introduce ourselves to the country that created the games and music that inspired our band, we put together an album that spans our entire history from our demos to our first official release, "Saturday Morning Apocalypse." The newer songs have been remixed and remastered, and not only is the mix heavier, fuller and just much better in general, but the instruments and synths are rebalanced and you can hear nuances and details obscured in the demo versions. The oldest songs however were completely rerecorded and a few have been reworked compositionally. Songs like The Decisive Battle and Dr. Wily Stage 1 have evolved into some of our best songs to date and we're really proud of the results. Don't worry; no Ewoks were digitally edited into the songs and the guns have not been repleaced by walkie talkies.

The release date is July 25th 2012, just 10 days away!

Here's the cover illustration, created by famed Guilty Gear creator/illustrator/musician/renaissance man Daisuke Ishiwatari, who also composed the song Holy Orders which appears on the album:



Wow. When I was playing Guilty Gear years and years ago with the band in our old apartment at Berklee, I never would have thought that one day the game's creator and songwriter would draw a picture of me clenching my fist and screaming at a burning mechanincal skull. Now all I need is a time machine and I can make a teenage version of myself poop my pants in disbelief!

And here's the tracklisting:

??????????????!
1. RED WINGS OVER BARON
ORIGINAL TITLE:
THE RED WINGS
BATTLE 1
BATTLE WITH THE FOUR FRIENDS
INTO THE DARKNESS
BATTLE 2
FANFARE

2. THE DECISIVE BATTLE

3. STORM EAGLEED BATTLE

4. GOTTA CATCH'EM ALL
[feat. TONY KAKKO]
5. OMNISHRED - WE'RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER SWORD!
ORIGINAL TITLE:

[from FINAL FANTASY VII]
6. HOLY ORDERS (BE QUICK AND JUST SHRED)
ORIGINAL TITLE:
HOLY ORDERS (BE JUST OR BE DEAD)
[from GUILTY GEAR X]
7. BIRTH OF A GOD
[from FINAL FANTASY VII]
8. THE SIMPSONS

9. BEGINNING / BLOODY TEARS
[BEGINNING: ???????]
[BLOODY TEARS: ?????II ???????]
10. DR. WILY STAGE 1
[from ROCKMAN 2]


We give thanks to our new Japanese label for not only hooking us up with Daisuke, but also for believing in us and having a vision to bring our music to Japan. We also give honor and glory to our old friend Tony Kakko from Sonata Arctica who introduced us to Marquee/Avalon.

We're on tour with MC Chris in the US right now (two shows down and both were great so far!) but starting next month after we return we have limited our touring to a few one off shows and conventions for the rest of 2012 and our entire focus will be on recording a new album. I know you've been waiting, and your patience will be rewarded; this is our solemn promise! Reworking the old songs got us back in touch with our original sound and we now have a clear idea of how to blend our newer, heavier riffing on "Saturday Morning Apocalypse" with the classic, melodic feel of our early songs. Band morale is really high and we're finally in a position to make a great new record, and hopefully release it everywhere people want to hear it! We have many ideas sketched out and songs being rearranged, and starting in August we are going to work smelting ingots of glory and hammering it out in our mighty sonic forge.

See you on tour!

EDIT: You can order it from cdjapan.co.jp.. Be warned there is no American version so it is expensive to import. But people have been asking about it so we thought we'd post the link for the completist fans.
