Particle People! We had such a blast on our recent Winter Tour, and it was so great to hang with all of you from the Northeast all the way down to the Southwest. We're really looking forward to our upcoming Spring Tour, and to debuting a fresh batch of new original songs and first time covers. Wil Simon will be joining us once again as Lighting Director, and he'll be traveling with his own custom lighting rig built specifically for this tour. Sound Engineer Joe Mango will also be on hand with his 32-channel digital console to capture multitrack recordings of all the shows. Can't wait to see you all out on the road!

Particle's Steve Molitz & Shaq Team Up For New Video Game

Particle keyboardist Steve Molitz has teamed up with four-time NBA Champ Shaquille O'Neal and New Jersey-based video game company Big Deez Productions to create the soundtrack for a new video game titled "Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn." Molitz will write the original score for the game, and will also remix songs from Shaq's platinum-selling catalog, including the single "Can't Stop The Reign" feat. Notorious BIG.

Shaq recently launched an Indiegogo campaign to involve fans in the creation of the game. The campaign ends on 4/20, and includes rewards such as private keyboard/music production lessons with Molitz, voicing characters and sound effects for the game, and the opportunity to play a pick-up basketball game with Shaq at his house. Check out the official Shaq Fu Indiegogo page.
