Tweaker to release Doom3 Theme 7"

As previously reported, Chris Vrenna and Clint Walsh recorded the theme song for Doom 3 - which hits the US on August 3rd, and Europe (among other places) on the 13th. Vrenna only worked on the theme, but the jury's still out on the sound design, which Trent Reznor put work into for a while before working full-time on Bleed Through. On the subject of the theme:
�We asked Chris to create a modern DOOM 3 theme song that reflected the character and intensity of DOOM3, and we couldn�t be happier with the final product,� said Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. �Chris and id have shared a mutual appreciation for each others work, and it was exciting to be able to team up on something that fans of both id and Vrenna will appreciate.�Side A of the 7" will be the theme song, produced by noted producer- composers Chris Vrenna and Clint Walsh. Side B will be a previously unavailable Teargas & Plateglass remix of Tweaker "Crude Sunlight" featuring Jennifer Charles (of Elysian Fields fame). The first 500 copies will be signed by Chris Vrenna and Clint Walsh and will be available as a pre-order at Noon PST on Monday, July 26th (that's really soon, folks) at the Waxploitation store.
