The band’s already released a soundtrack preview but now, as an exclusive with Loudwire and Arcade Sushi, they’re premiering three of the original songs written for different levels in the game and issuing a challenge to fans. Listen to the three songs and record your own cover version or version in any style. You can choose one theme or all three and the more creative the better. Upload your version(s) to Soundcloud or Youtube with the title and hashtag #Deathbatgamecontest by 11:59 PM (PT) on Oct. 17, 2014.
Once posted, share your video everywhere you can because the two versions of each song with the most plays by 5:00 PM (PT) on Oct. 22, 2014 will be entered for the chance to win the grand prize. The band will personally select a winner from the top 6 submissions, the other 5 will receive the runner-up prizes. There will also be 10 winners selected at random from all submissions. Official contest rules can be found here. UPDATE: The contest is now open internationally. Please read the announcement and information here.
