Fellow Pittsburghians and label mates, Arcade High‘s latest release Kingdom is a concept album that plays in imagery inspired by 80’s fantasy like Dungeons & Dragons or video games like Dragon’s Lair. The band had this to say about the album, “We love the retro scene, chalk full of influences from classic movies and soundtracks, but we wanted to do something a little different. Mixing the always-present video game feel, and pulling influences from 70s and 80s pulp horror / fantasy novels.” Buy your copy of Kingdom here.
