Toejam And Earl: Back In The Groove
The official Toejam and Earl Facebook-page have replied to a comment asking if the soundtrack for Toejam And Earl: Back In The Groove will be available on vinyl. The response was: “Yup we’re working with IAM8BIT and will be releasing something like this. We have more music to make first though.”
From other comments regarding music it seems to indicate that composers Burke Trieschmann and John Baker from the previous Toejam And Earl games have been involved with the new music (some music are remakes of older tracks).
There’s no word or indication on a release date, but it’s probably not unfair to assume that it’s scheduled around the game’s release date which is around November, 2016.
