I happen to be a big fan of video game music and there are a lot of video game music cover bands out there. One particularly big band are The Megas, who specialize in songs all about MegaMan. Any fans of The Megas will be happy to know that the Capcom blog has recently announced that The Megas have released a new single for their upcoming album, History Repeating: Red. You can check out their bandcamp site for downloading and listening to the new single now.
Capcom also wanted to remind everyone that The Megas will be one of many musical performers at the 11th Annual MAGfest, which actually starts tomorrow. It will be held at the Gaylord (yeah, yeah I know) National Hotel and Convention Center in Maryland from January 3rd to the 6th.
For those not in the know, MAGfest is a music and gaming festival held by fans, for the fans. The main website describes it as an “annual event dedicated to the celebration of video games and video game music”. It features game rooms for everyone’s gaming needs, musical performances from live video game cover bands, and even guest speakers from the game industry. You can visit the main site for MAGfest for more information on this year’s event.
I wish I could be there personally cause it sounds like an absolute blast. Anyone planning on going?
