The long-awaited season seven of Venture Bros will premiere on August 5, 2018 on Adult Swim / Cartoon Network. As usual, JG Thirlwell created the musical score for all ten episodes of the season, which is a particularly score-heavy season.
The cult hit series from creator Jackson Publick (The Tick) scored No. 1 rankings among adults and men 18-24, 18-34 and 18-49 for its timeslot when the hotly anticipated sixth season first aired earlier this year, after a 2 ½ year hiatus.
The home entertainment release contains all eight epic episodes from season six, plus the new-to-disc 2015 All This and Gargantua-2 45-minute special. Thirlwell’s musical score for this special was nominated for an Annie Award, the highest accolade in the field of animation.
Episodes included are: “Hostile Makeover,” “Maybe No Go,” “Faking Miracles,” “Rapacity in Blue,” “Tanks for Nuthin’,” “It Happening One Night,” “A Party for Tarzan” , “Red Means Stop” plus “All This and Gargantua-2“. Bonus material includes commentaries for every episode and deleted scenes.
JG Thirlwell is creating the musical score for the new season of the critically acclaimed hit show Archer. Archer is an animated, half-hour comedy that revolves around a former spy agency turned private investigation firm and the lives of its employees. The new season, which is Archer‘s seventh, begins airing on March 31 2016 in the US on the FX network. Until now Archer has been using stock music for their score, and this is their first season with a composer. JG will also continue work on Venture Bros for Adult Swim / Cartoon Network, and will be releasing Volume 2 of Venture Bros soundtracks on his Ectopic Ents label through an arrangement with Adult Swim very soon. Thirlwell was recently nominated for an Annie Award for his work on the Venture Bros, which is the highest honor in the field of animation.
“Space. The final frontier, where no one can hear you scream, revenge is only served cold, and the drinks are comped in the casino. Join the Ventures—and pretty much everyone they’ve ever crossed paths with—as they rocket to the Gargantua-2 space station for an epic, hour-long adventure that will change the Ventureverse as we know it forever.”
This double episode will feature a ton of new music by JG Thirlwell. The rest of season six will be airing at a later date.
Venture Bros Season Four Part Two is now available on DVD. The disc contain eight episodes, including the double length season closer “Operation P.R.O.M.”, and is brimming with new scores by JG Thirlwell, as well as commentary on each episode by Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer. It is available at Amazon, the Adult Swim store and many fine retailers.
Four videos from the Steroid Maximus at Prospect Park bandshell in Brooklyn show last summer have just been posted in the video section of foetus.org. For the show (which was part of the Celebrate Brooklyn festival), JG Thirlwell assembled and conducted a twenty piece mini-orchestra.
Among the clips is an edited version of a Venture Bros medley which includes versions of “Fumblestealth”, “Bolly” and “No Vacancy (Venture Bros Theme)”, as well as an explosive version of “Gawker” from the Venture Bros soundtrack and two tracks from the Steroid Maximus album Ectopia: “L’espion Qui A Pleure” and “Aclectasis”.
The videos were shot by Drew Ravani and Margarita Jimeno, and edited by Rimma Dreyband.
At long last, JG Thirlwell’s album The Venture Bros: The Music of JG Thirlwell has been repressed. The CD is available once more in the shop. Don’t miss it this time!
