Jam Out with us and Celebrate Castle Crashers! 🎶

We just recently passed the 11th anniversary of Castle Crashers, which is no small day. We’ll be celebrating 11 years of Castle Crashers and the upcoming launch to Nintendo Switch and PS4 with the game’s music, and you’re invited to party with us!

Every week starting August 27, 2019 and running all the way through October 8, 2019, a musician will be covering one or more of the songs off the Castle Crashers soundtrack. You’ll be able to catch these covers on YouTube, or watch them streamed live on Twitch.

We’ll be updating this blog with the new dates and times each week, so be sure to check back. For now, we’ll kick off the celebrations with the schedule for the first two musicians:

August 27th, 2019 at 1:30 PM PST – The8BitDrummer LIVE on Twitch

The8BitDrummer is a drummer (big surprise there) who streams live covers to an exuberant audience on Twitch! We might be biased, but we’re particularly impressed with his cover of BattleBlock Theater’s Secret Stage music because he somehow managed to sing the entire thing.

He’ll be starting off the celebration strong and playing through the ENTIRE Castle Crashers soundtrack, so you won’t want to miss out on this madman’s performance!

September 3rd, 2019 at 2:00 PM PST – FamilyJules cover premiere on YouTube

FamilyJules is a rad guitarist that is best known for his video game music covers — in fact, he’s done well over 100! Of course, a part of that number is made up by Castle Crashers covers. If you’re feeling a craving for rock and bones, we recommend checking out his original Necromancer Theme cover.

He’ll be premiering an all-new Castle Crashers cover that will have you smashing that replay button!

September 9th, 2019 at 2:00 PM PST – Ubaldo cover premiere on YouTube

Ubaldo is another incredible guitarist who both composes and arranges cover music from pop culture, other musicians, and of course, video games – all with his own killer flair.

On September 9th, he’ll be sharing his own take on a unique Castle Crashers cover with the world, and we can’t wait to listen!

September 19th, 2019 at 7:00 PM PST – Lara6683 LIVE on Twitch

Lara6683 is a musician from Australia who is best known for her talents on the piano and violin. She’s big on old-school video game music nostalgia, so celebrating 11 years of Castle Crashers seemed like the perfect fit!

Catch her live on Twitch on September 19th — she’ll be learning some of the songs from Castle Crashers, and playing them live!

September 24th, 2019 at 2:00 PM PST – MaximumGuitar cover premiere on YouTube

MaximumGuitar plays — you guessed it — the guitar! (Among other things, of course) He does a variety of guitar covers, and was featured on Patric Catani’s Pit People Remix Party album! He even has a whole playlist of music from Castle Crashers and other Behemoth games that you can listen to!

Wondering what that private video on the playlist is? MaximumGuitar will be premiering another special cover from Castle Crashers on September 24th at 2:00 PM PT for your listening pleasure!

October 1st, 2019 at 2:00 PM PST – The Game Brass cover premiere on YouTube

The Game Brass puts a unique spin on video game music as a talented brass quintet! The quintet includes two trumpets, a trombone, a french horn, and a tuba. They have a fantastic rendition of a Castle Crashers classic lined up, lovingly titled “Four Brave Champions (and a Tuba).” We’ll let you figure out the rest from there.

And since tomorrow marks the start of October, be sure to keep an eye out for their extra spooky Halloween album Brasselvania which also drops on October 1st!

October 8th, 2019 at 2:00 PM PST – The8BitDrummer and FamilyJules cover premiere on YouTube

You know them both by now — The8BitDrummer and FamilyJules have already performed separately, but now they’re coming together for a killer collaboration! With all that talent, this is definitely one you won’t want to miss.

We have even more artists on the way to delight your eardrums and tug on your heartstrings by tugging on their instrument strings. Stay tuned (get it, tuned?) and check back here each week to see when the next show is!

Square Up or Back Off (Barbarian) at PAX West 2019!

The Back Off Barbarian High Score Challenge is coming to PAX West 2019, and we’re challenging you, and you, and anyone who comes to the show, and especially YOU!

Back Off Barbarian High Score Challenge

Entering is easy, winning is the hard part. To play, swing by our PAX West arcade at booth #1501 from 10 AM to 4 PM on any day of the show and try to survive longer than your friends, your enemies, and everyone else in Back Off Barbarian. If you manage to come out on top, you’ll earn yourself a big ol’ bag of Behemoth swag.

For the rule-followers and goody-two-shoes alike, here’s a full breakdown of the entry rules:

  • Play Back Off Barbarian in our arcade between 10 AM and 4 PM any day of PAX West. We’ll be located at booth #1501!
  • If you survive long enough to earn yourself a spot on the high-score table, enter your initials and snap a photo of your achievement with your phone.
  • Post the picture of your high score to Instagram using the hashtag #BOBChallengePAX.
  • You can try to snag that high score as many times as you’d like each day; you’ll just have to wait in line in between rounds.
  • Each day of the show, the person with the highest score will be crowned champion and earn themselves an awesome prize! However, an individual can only win one prize for the challenge during the PAX West 2019 weekend.

And that’s all there is to it! Bring your shufflin’ shoes, and get to surviving. We’ll see you there!
