“8-Bits” Free EP!

Posted on in News

8-bits remixed cover3

Hey guys!

So, as a kid I devoted countless hours of my life playing video games. Nintendo games like “Little Nemo,” “Mega Man” and “Contra” – all have a special place in my heart. Which is why the idea of turning a few Sleeping At Last songs into 8-bit (Nintendo-style) music felt like such a fantastic idea!!

As homage to my childhood summers of video games and fun, I proudly present you with this FREE Summer Surprise EP entitled, “8-Bits” available now for a limited time on NoiseTrade!

My pals, Steven Padin and Mike Carroll from an insanely talented band called The Reign of Kindo made this possible! They spent many hours over the last year and a half converting these songs note by note to make the most authentic 8-bit versions as possible. They did a truly fantastic job!

The “8-Bits”ย  EP features 1 song from each of my records, magically transformed into retro Nintendo-style video game music:

1. Currents (from “Ghosts”)
2. Umbrellas (from “Keep No Score”)
3. Porcelain (from “Storyboards”)
4. Next To Me (from “Yearbook”)

(EP Includes the original recordings of each song too!)

Huge thanks to Steven and Mike! Please take a moment to check out The Reign of Kindo’s excellent music here!! andย here!! and here!!


Happy Summertime!! Many more announcements coming throughout the Summer!

Much love, Ryan
