Rock News: Something cool for rockers, gamers and skaters
One of our favorite indy bands, Even Rude, is part of the new Activision "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater" game for Sony Play Station. Other artist include the Dead Kennedys and Primus. Even Rude is obviously excited about being part of this project. It was their music that  lead Tony Hawk to victory during the 98 ESPN X-Games. So it was natural to include them in the new game. 

Is the game cool? Even Rude lead vocalist King had this to say,  “I played a rough demo at Activision when me and Cake went in to talk to them about doing this.  I didn't want to play it because I knew I would never stop.  I got like 14,000 and was STOKED.” 

“14,000 SUCKS, my roommates have had the demo for awhile and they're scoring like 30,000 with one tail slap move.  It’s some sort of secret trick.” quipped bassist Dave Wadsworth in response. 

The band hopes this will help give them more exposure. Guitarist Cake sums up the the bands hopes,   “We are so happy to get in on this game.  They are shipping 1,000,000 games to stores in Oct.  That means 1,000,000 kids will be hearing and seeing us in their homes.  Anyone want to give a band a record deal?” 

Tony Hawk is as close as you can come to a legend in the sport of pro skating, so we know any game bearing him name will not suck. Also look for a sound track to follow including Even Rude. 

Here is the Press Release.

Santa Monica, CA - August 19, 1999 - From classic punk music to alternative rock anthems, the tracks featured on Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater for the PlayStation® game console include popular, cutting-edge bands and songs that will appeal to hard-core skaters and gamers alike. Players can listen to the following artists and tracks while engaging in intense head-to-head competition against their buddies or the computer: 

Dead Kennedys - “Police Truck”
The Ernies - “Here & Now”
Even Rude - “Vilified”
Goldfinger - “Superman”
Primus - “Jerry was a Race Car Driver”
Speedealer - “Screamer / Nothing to me”
Suicidal Tendencies - “Cyco Vision”
Suicide Machines - “New Girl”
Unsane - “Commited”
The Vandals - “Euro-Barge”

Scheduled to ship late September, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater features a sophisticated trick and combo system that allows players to perform hundreds of combinations of radical moves and death-defying stunts. Skaters can tear through real-world tracks with the speed and agility of a seasoned skateboarding professional. Littered with secret areas, shortcuts and hard-to-reach spots, the game’s environments range from malls and freeways to elementary schools and congested downtown areas. 

Offering several modes of play, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater’s two-player split-screen trick attack mode give skaters the ability to interact with other players, allowing them to compete on ramps and in skateparks for style points, race between various obstacles on the tracks or play a brutal game of tag. The game also features two additional multiplayer modes, including S-K-A-T-E (skaters’ version of basketball’s H-O-R-S-E) and Graffiti mode in which two players “tag” different obstacles in an environment by pulling big tricks off of them. If one player has tagged an obstacle, his opponent can steal it back by pulling a bigger trick off the same object. When time runs out, the player with the majority of the environment tagged wins. The game also features a replay mode where players can view the highlights of each run.
