The Venture Brothers Season 5 Premiere has been moved back to June 2nd 2013 at Midnight on Adult Swim / Cartoon Network. JG Thirlwell advises that you should continue to hold your breath as it’s going to be a wild ride. Go Team Venture!
The long unavailable soundtrack album The Venture Bros : The Music Of JG Thirlwell has been repressed on CD and is now exclusively distributed by Thirlwell’s label Ectopic Ents. Thirlwell has been hard at work creating huge amounts of exciting music for the score of the fifth season of the Venture Bros, which will premiere in 2013 on Adult Swim / Cartoon Network. The network recently broadcast a season five teaser in the form of the hugely popular Venture Bros Halloween special.
A new episode of The Venture Bros will premiere at 11.30 pm on October 28, 2012 on Adult Swim / Cartoon Network, featuring an exciting new score by JG Thirlwell. Though this Halloween-themed episode is part of season five, the rest of season five will not start airing until 2013. According to Jackson Publick : “Basically, when we did the math and figured out that we probably wouldn’t be able to premiere season 5 until the beginning of 2013, I got super-depressed over the prospect of a Venture-less 2012. Doc was already half done writing a spooky sort of episode that he wanted to take place on Halloween, so we made it official.” Entitled “A Very Venture Halloween”, the episode was created and directed by Jackson Publick and written by Publick and Doc Hammer, both of whom also provide voices for the special.
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!
