Team StarKid have posted an announcement video regarding the release of an album and DVD of the group’s 2012 live tour, Apocalyptour. The video also reveals that StarKid also plan to release digital downloads of all their original content. We’ve got the specifics below.
StarKid co-founder and writer Brian Holden brought fans the following information: much as they did for 2011’s SPACE Tour, Team StarKid have prepared both a live album and a tour DVD of the Apocalyptour, so if you were not able to make it out to a show, you will be able to enjoy all the StarKid hijinks from the comfort of your couch.
The live album will be up on iTunes on October 2, and the DVD – which will include special features – will be available on sale from October 30. Those fans who have already purchased the SPACE Tour DVD will know that Team StarKid really put together a quality product in their tour DVD, and we can expect all that and more from Apocalyptour.
Brian also revealed that over the next few months – no specific date just yet – StarKid plan on releasing all their original shows as digital downloads. This will include the two live tours – SPACE and Apocalyptour – as well as the musicals Starship and Me and My Dick. These downloads will presumably be cheaper than the DVDs and be available instantly! This news should excite fans, particularly in regards to the musicals becoming available in a higher-quality digital format than YouTube.
