Spike TV and Artemis Records Announce 'Video Game Awards Hits Volume 1 - Best Of Video Game Music'; CD Due Out November 30th

Spike TV's 'Video Game Awards 2004,' Hosted by Snoop Dogg

Premieres LIVE Tuesday, December 14

NEW YORK, Nov. 4 -- Spike TV and Artemis Records proudly announce VIDEO GAME AWARDS HITS VOLUME 1 - BEST OF VIDEO GAME MUSIC. The new compilation CD, which is Spike TV's first ever commercial music deal, contains the hottest music taken from today's hottest video games. The diverse music CD, which ranges from hip-hop to hard rock, will be released on November 30th, just two weeks in advance of Spike TV's "Video Game Awards 2004" premieres LIVE on Tuesday, December 14th (9:00-11:00 PM, ET).

Senior Vice President of Talent and Development for Spike TV and Executive Producer of the CD Casey Patterson commented, "Music in video games have become like soundtracks for movies. Publishers are commissioning major recording artists to produce original music for games exclusively. Video games are the new place to launch hit singles. These soundtracks are adding tremendously to the tone, pacing, promotion and overall experience of the games."

Artemis Records President Daniel Glass added, "Players' tastes fall across a wide spectrum, and the video game industry is not afraid to embrace that. You'll find artists and songs in video games that you won't find anywhere else. It's a great place to break new music, of all kinds."

In 2003, Spike TV held its inaugural "Video Game Awards." Hosted by David Spade, the show garnered more than one million viewers and was the #1 show that evening in cable among P12-24 and M12-34. The show also featured electrifying performances by Kelis, DMX, P.O.D., Bubba Sparx and Tony Hawk's Boom Boom Huck Jam. Appearances included Pamela Anderson, Lil' Kim, Ray Liotta, Jaime Pressley and Orlando Jones. The second annual awards will be hosted by Snoop Dogg and will be broadcast live from Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA on December 14.
