TokyorunThe time is almost upon us for the first ever Woob vinyl LP release!  Tokyo Run is Currently penciled in for a launch post event this Sunday 22nd October and will be available on Digital/Vinyl/USB.

Until then take a look at the illustration used for the cover art by the incredibly talented Adrian Dadich. This piece along with the original ‘ Tokyo Run’ and ‘Mass Distraction’ stories by Adam Foley (among others) helped inspire the album’s cyberpunk sound.

Comment on the soundcloud waveform above and my favourite comment will receive some signed Novak Surveillance artwork (not shown). Novak 監視 ™ is the fictional megacorp ruining the lives of both human and synthetics alike in the `Tokyo Run’ universe. [Read more…]

Now live thanks to everyone for your support.

UPDATING (UK TIME)

3:09 Welcome to the Overrun_exe Launch Day! I’ll keep updating this post throughout the day with details on all the physical editions and merch. Above the album artwork finally reveals what Jessica actually looks like albeit in a manner of being possessed by ancient 8-bit code. Also if you missed them – here’s the first and third tracks off the album.

5:34 Final track has finished uploading! Album is almost ready to go. Although this is not a Time Limited release this version of the album will only be available for 101 days and include a bonus track and alternative artwork.

5:39 New Teeeeees!

teeez

5:50 Based on the alt. coverart these Tees feature the cat. number hidden in the print and will only be available for a limited time. These are a merch. only item and not part of a special edition and will be available to order next week.

5:55 This backstory inspired two one off editions to be revealed later today.

After escaping the ‘Midnight Arcade’ the group make it back to their house. On checking Jessica’s room for any signs she may have returned after they were separated, a loud clicking noise coming from the corner grabs their attention.

A cassette machine in record has reached the end of side A and has failed to stop creating a rhythmical tick. By the unit an empty cassette box spine reads ‘Remember Me’ the track listing shows only a bloodstained kiss. To the left a record spins and crackles on its final groove, there is a strange symbol where the label should be, below it handwritten letters spell out: CORTEX.

6:42 New format…

6:47 NIGHT DRIVE !

7:39 Beware the…

cortex

This is not a Special Edition, Signed Edition or Limited Edition this is… The Cortex.

Glimpsed briefly before its disappearance by only a handful of Arcadia Point residents, the Cortex is shrouded in mystery. All that is known is that there is a strange symbol where the label should be, below it handwritten letters spell out: CORTEX. Although no one has ever seen the reverse side legend has it there is a formula or spell of some kind of antidote inked by a madman. Others suggest there is a piece of music so powerful it can transform the human body into another form. Whatever the case if this item ever finds itself into our possession you will find it here.

7:43 There’s only one Cortex and it will be available at WoobHQ later this month.

7:47 OK only one left to go… and it’s probably the best Woob One -off edition ever  – unfortunately however there is a technical issue with the track I uploaded earlier and I have to go and fix it so will be back at 9pm (UK) for reveal and launch:-0

9:00 Track sorted… uploading now looks like 9:30-10pm launch though

9:39 should be 10!

10:04 Remember Me Edition –  Includes fully  working  8-bit synthesizer in the form of a cassette!

10:15 Overrun_exe now live

Woob – Homecoming

The first track from Overrun_exe seems appropriate for today with its sinister overtones, listen as Jessica’s transmutation begins.

The album is out November 2nd* join me here for an understated launch post where I will be revealing a very special physical edition, the actual artwork plus….. a whole new format!

Adaption spin-off ‘Remember Me’ follow’s Jessica’s timeline through sound, here’s some back story:

After escaping the ‘Midnight Arcade’ the group make it back to their house. On checking Jessica’s room for any signs she may have returned after they were separated, a loud clicking noise coming from the corner grabs their attention.
