Mega Drive: ‘Seas Of Infinity’ Album Debuts Today Exclusively on Bandcamp!

Mega Drive: Seas of Infinity | Lakeshore Records

Vehlinggo premieres the chilled-out, vapory “In Dreams,” my favorite cut from an album that trends toward the darker, more kinetic side of things. The first part of the instrumental number is a full-on melodic and meditative movement, culminating in an interesting surprise for the latter half. – Vehlinggo

Gear up, and prepare your ears for some ruthless synth and beats. “Godspeed Us To The Stars” is the quintessential sound we have grown to love from Mega Drive. – NewRetroWave

 

Lakeshore Records is pleased to release Mega Drive’s new album, “Seas Of Infinity” out now digitally on Bandcamp!  The album will also be out on other digital outlets next Friday, May 26, but for instant gratification, download the album on Bandcamp, which includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3 and FLAC.  Stay tuned for more album updates!
