I Fight Dragons Light the Fuse on New 3D Video; "Save World Get Girl" Premieres Exclusively via Nintendo Video Service for Nintendo 3DS; Chicago Electro-Rockers to Spend Summer 2012 on the Road With Vans Warped Tour; Dates Get Underway June 16th in Salt L(April 24, 2012)
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 04/24/12 -- Photo Finish/Atlantic recording group I Fight Dragons has teamed with Nintendo to create an extraordinary 3D video available exclusively to users of the Nintendo Video service for Nintendo 3DS. The premium 3D video for "Save World Get Girl" premiered yesterday, April 23rd -- for complete details, please visit www.nintendo.com/3ds/nintendo-video.
"Save World Get Girl" is among the many highlights found on I Fight Dragons' 2011 debut album, "KABOOM!" Produced by Self's Matt Mahaffey (Beck, Tenacious D, Hellogoodbye), the album showcases the Chicago-based band's digitized, daring sonic formula on such stellar songs as the insurgent "The Geeks Will Inherit The Earth" or the volatile title track.
IFD is now getting set to spend the summer blowing it up on the upcoming Vans Warped Tour 2012. The 18th annual traveling festival gets underway on June 16th at Salt Lake City's Utah State Fairpark and then continues through early August (see itinerary below). For more, please see www.ifightdragons.com/tour.
I Fight Dragons have earned widespread acclaim and a fired-up fan following via an inventive and explosive approach towards music, masterfully crafting their original songs by melding traditional rock elements with old video game soundcards. The band accesses systems such as the Nintendo Entertainment System and the Nintendo Gameboy to compose new music, even going so far as to utilize Nintendo controllers as instruments in their strikingly original live show. Since coming together in 2008, IFD has shared stages with an array of like-minded artists, spanning Cobra Starship, Travie McCoy, MC Chris, and Photo Finish labelmates 3OH!3. In addition, the band traveled North America as part of last year's hugely successful "Yo Gabba Gabba Live! It's Time To Dance! Tour."
