The Rabid Whole NEWS!

20121004-071605.jpg

Lots of stuff happening with The Rabid Whole lately! If you don’t know who my band is, just click The Rabid Whole tab on my blog.

First thing, we recently shot a music video for our song “Future”. It’s currently being edited and we can’t wait to show the world when it’s done!

We played Toronto and Ottawa, few weeks back, and we rocked the hell out of those cities! Lithium Magazine did a interview with us at the Toronto show, so here’s the video. Though ignore the mention of a tour for this fall (we may have shot off about that way too soon. But be patient!)

The Rabid Whole is nominated for a Toronto Independent Music Award in the “Best Electronic” catagory, so the band is going to be attending the awards this Saturday. Here’s the press release about it. We will be wearing our finest polyester to this shindig. 😛

Our next show is during Indie Week, here in Toronto next week. Here’s the Facebook event.

And if you’d like, here’s a full stream of our most recent album “Refuge“.

Hopefully I’ll see some of you at one of our shows!

On a personal note, I’ve helped brought lighting to The Rabid Whole’s live show, which I’m pretty proud of. I learned a whole whack load of new tech stuff in a weekend!

For my fellow Canadians, have a lovely Thanksgiving, this weekend.

Boom.

RADUTRON EP PRESS RELEASE

Best known as the guitarist for Toronto-based electro-rockers The Rabid Whole, George V. Radutu is pleased to unveil his new fan audio project RADUTRON. Its first release is titled …Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying, And Do Covers and features 8 cover songs inspired by both artist and video game composers from the last 60+ years. This EP will be available in early 2012 as a free download.

The inspiration for the project came from Radutu’s love of video game soundtracks. “I wanted to create my own versions of these popular, and underground tunes that have been soundtracks to my escapism over these many years. I’m certain that my fellow gamers, and music lovers will enjoy these.”

The cover art for …Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying, And Do Covers was created by Charlotte Solieh. Radutu found her work online and knew she would be perfect for the vibe he sought to create. “I stumbled-upon Charlotte’s work online and was blown away by it. Its a plus that she is also a gamer. She knows how to re-create a scene using those oh-so-fine brush strokes.”

The digital-only package will include a PDF booklet documenting the passion behind the production.

True to the spirit of game production, tracks on the EP were beta-tested.

…Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Do Covers will be available for PC/Mac, PS3, XBOX 360, iOS, and any other device that plays mp3s.

The [ABSOLUTELY FREE] EP is slated for an early 2012 release.

Tracklist:

1. Ride The Bomb (Excessive Force, Sascha K.)
2. Use Your Head (Earthworm Jim, Tommy Tallarico)
3. Iwywaw (Com Truise, Seth Haley)
4. Marble Garden Zone (Sonic 3, Howard Drossin)
5. Kiss (Prince and The Revolution)
6. My Mind (Final Fantasy VIII, Nobuo Uematsu)
