Groove Armada for Rayman 3
Ubi Soft Entertainment and Jive Records announced today that the electronica group Groove Armada will be providing the song "Madder" as the signature tune for the Rayman 3. Groove Armada is a Grammy-nominated group, as they will be featured in the official trailer and in-game demo sequences.
"Like Rayman himself, Groove Armada has a hip, edgy feel, combined with a healthy dose of fun -- and they both get lots of love from critics and fans alike. It's an inspired pairing," said Tony Kee, Vice President of Marketing for Ubi Soft Entertainment. "Along with voices from John Leguizamo and Billy West, top-notch production values, an epic story, adrenaline-fueled combat and heavy-duty superpowers, 'Madder' makes Rayman 3 a major contender this spring."
"Groove Armada plays sold-out shows all over the world; they've sold 1.2 million albums, and their music is in high demand for soundtracks and commercials for the likes of Nike and Mitsubishi," said Julia Lipari, senior vice president for special projects/marketing for Jive Records. "Videogames are the next natural frontier for the band, and we're stoked that they're making their debut in Rayman 3 -- it's a trippy, exciting blast of fun, and it complements the music perfectly."
Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc will be available this March.
