We team up with GamesRadar for their Weekend Giveaway!

Check out this cool video we did for GamesRadar.com! Every weekend, they do a giveaway. This weekend, it’s a bunch of interactive music shirts from ThinkGeek.

We took part of our song “I Know Now” and played it on these shirts, over our Game Boy track, of course. 😉 Make sure to check out GamesRadar.com on Saturday, April 2nd to check out the contest.

Many thanks to AJAPOPFILMS for shooting and editing this video.


Listen to the new track “Got It Bad”

The latest song on our demo just went live on our Bandcamp page! Take a listen to it above, or visit our page at http://theglowingstars.bandcamp.com. If you like it, please “Like” it on our Facebook Fan Page, on Bandcamp, tweet it on Twitter, post it in your blog, whatever! Let us know what you think. These songs are demos, so there’s tons of room for fine-tuning by the time the EP rolls around. We also played this song live on this week’s episode of TalkRadar, GamesRadar’s official gaming podcast. More on that when it posts.

What’s next? Working on the EP, of course.

Don’t forget to catch us at PAX East if you’re in the Boston area from March 11-13. We’ve got swag!

The Glowing Stars on GamesRadar, and other plans

Though we only released one track so far, it feels like a million, billion things are going on – and they are!

We still plan on releasing one more song as part of our demo, but we’re also well on our way to recording our first EP in March, which is very exciting. Between now and then, however, we have several plans. In addition to writing more material, have a few video-related things in the works! You can also expect us to guest on a podcast pretty soon. We (or actually just Lizzie) will also be at PAX East in Boston giving away some cool The Glowing Stars merch.

That aside, we’ve had quite the presence on the internet this week. Since the release of our first track on Valentine’s Day, we’ve been featured in an article on GamesRadar.com, as well as had part of “I Know Now” play on the latest episode of TalkRadar, their official podcast. Check out the links below!

Lastly, we plan to release our EP in two formats: 1) It’ll be available as a digital download on our Bandcamp page. 2) We have plans for a limited run of 200 custom USB EPs on modified Game Boy cartridges. We’re actually in the process of collecting all of these cartridges, but if you have any lying around (they don’t have to be working) that you’re willing to donate, shoot us an e-mail at theglowingstarsband[at]gmail[dot]com. Those who have donated cartridges to us will receive a cool surprise pack which we have yet to announce in fuller detail soon.

That’s about all the updates we have for you! If you haven’t listened to our track yet, you can take a listen above. Please share it if you like it, and don’t forget to “Like” us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!
