Get Rain City Rockers’ ‘Anime’ EP for Free Now
If you like Pokemon, Digimon and Dragon Ball Z, then we might have a little something cool for you to enjoy on this fine February day. Thanks to the Rain City Rockers, we're giving away the group's entire Anime EP for free!
The Rain City Rockers teams frontman Andrew Conroy with Tom Thacker (Sum 41, Gob), Anthony Bleed (Die Mannequin) and Darrin Pfeiffer (Goldfinger), and the Anime EP is the follow-up to the group's debut album, Mayday. Coming in at just under seven minutes, the entire EP features covers of theme songs from classic cartoons Pokemon, Sailor Moon, Digimon, and Dragon Ball Z, as well as an original track, "If You Don't Like Pikachu".
"Theme songs really resonate with viewers, even years after the show has ended, and I wanted to do my own take on these songs," Andrew Conroy said. "I go to a number of conventions every year, and I absolutely love the sense of community there. Giving this EP away for free is my way of saying thanks to everyone for being so awesome."
The rise of nerdcore in recent years is a testament to Conroy's words, and it's cool to see bands like this giving back to the fans and shows that inspired them. You'll be able to listen to the entire Anime EP below through SoundCloud, or download the EP in full at this link.
