Veronica Belmont interviews The Glowing Stars!

Last month, tech host Veronica Belmont stopped by our studio and interviewed us for Chevrolet’s Cruze-arati series. Matt Payne explains how to use original 8-bit hardware, like the Nintendo Game Boy, to create music, and even creates a new song for Veronica by recording car sounds and converting them into 8-bit. Check out the video below, and even catch a bit of our latest release “Group Study,” which is only available on True Chip Till Death’s “Chip In: Japan!” compilation.

New The Glowing Stars song!

We have a new song available for download as part of a chip music compilation put together by True Chip Till Death and Pixelh8. This compilation was created in efforts to raise money for Japan after the tsunami. It currently features 90 tracks with more on the way.

All you have to do is donate money towards the American National Red Cross by clicking this link:

We’re really excited to be a part of this compilation with our friends in the chip community. The new song is called “Group Study.” This is the only way to get this song, so what are you waiting for? Go!

Buttons, April 7, and Japan

 

Our buttons finally arrived today, and just in time for our show with Anamanaguchi and Peelander-Z, which is in less than a month! Buying tickets early is cheaper (and recommended), so make sure you do so on the DNA Lounge website! We’ll have these, as well as more stickers, at our merch table at the show, as well as some other fun stuff. And if you’re on Facebook, you can RSVP here! Please spread the word, San Francisco!

Aren’t these buttons awesome? Big thanks to Mike Bombon, who designed these. Show him some love by visiting his website or following him on Twitter @VULTR3.

Also, many, many thanks to everyone who’s bought our tracks already on Bandcamp. We’ve raised some money and we’re donating 100% of it to American National Red Cross to aid Japan. You can still help out by visiting our Bandcamp page. Additionally, we’ll have a NEW song in a chiptunes compilation organized by True Chip Till Death and Pixelh8. If you donate money here, not only will you be helping out the country, but you’ll also receive an awesome collection of chip music from talented artists everywhere.
