The moment has finally arrived! My third album, “Duke Nukem Tank Tracks,” has been released!
This album was begun in 2018 and worked on (i.e., tweaked to death) until its completion in early 2021. It was inspired by the levels in “Duke Nukem 3D” and its successors, the “Atomic Edition” and the “20th Anniversary World Tour.” To write it, I dug back into the original MIDI music that Bobby Prince and I did for the game, studied the hell out of it, and came up with 15 new tracks using music and audio technology that wasn’t available back in 1996, when the game first came out.
I’m doing a digital-only release this time around. You’ll be able to either purchase the album for download or stream it. It’ll be available at tons of locations, including Amazon, Bandcamp, Spotify, and others. If you want to keep track of the major sites it’s on, visit my HearNow page, bookmark it, and keep checking back as new sites show up. By the way, you’ll be able to hear sneak previews of all 15 tracks on my HearNow page as well – one more reason to visit!
There are a couple of bonuses available if you buy the album from Bandcamp (base price $10). First, you’ll get a high-resolution PNG file of the digital cover art, created by renowned webcomic artist Kittyhawk. Second, you’ll get a seven-page booklet of liner notes, complete with info about each of the 15 tracks. Finally, those liner notes will include info on how to get the “DUKE NUKEM TANK TRACKS” OGG PACK, which will let you play the album’s songs inside the PC version of the “Duke Nukem: 20th Anniversary World Tour” version of the game!
The OGG Pack, which sells separately from the album for $5, is a ZIP file containing OGG format files of all 15 songs from the album, ready to be inserted into the game. It comes complete with a USER.CON file and a READ_ME.TXT file which will help you get things set up. It’s available from the “DUKE NUKEM TANK TRACKS” OGG PACK Store.
Three years is a long time to wait. I hope you’ll agree it was worth it. Download your copies today!
