A bunch of Aussie artists are featuring on the new ‘Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater’ soundtrack

WORDS BY TOM PARKER VIA BEAT.

The original version of the game proved incredibly influential for the featured artists.

Time to grab your skateboard and do a heelflip 720 because a bunch of Aussie artists will be featuring on the new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater remaster. For those who featured on the original soundtrack, it proved pivotal for their careers – the likes of Bodyjar, Goldfinger, Suicidal Tendencies and more benefited greatly for their inclusion on the game.

Now, with the release of the remastered version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 imminent, the game has just announced the artists set to soundtrack the much-anticipated remake. And a bunch of Aussies are part of the troupe.

The likes of A. Swayze & The Ghosts, Alex Lahey, Baker Boy and DZ Deathrays will have their songs played on the worldwide release. They make up a huge list of artists also featuring nostalgic kings Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish and Goldfinger, alongside Rage Against The Machine, FIDLAR, Millencolin, Viagra Boys, even hip hop legends A Tribe Called Quest and Naughty By Nature.

It comes after American video game developer, Vicarious Visions, announced they would be launching a remaster of the original first and second Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games. The remaster will be released in September and will feature a bunch of new features including an online multiplayer option as well as new tricks, increased difficulty settings and much more.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 will be re-released on September 4.
