8 Bit Weapon is a musical duo that specializes in creating modern music using classic video game consoles, vintage synthesizers, and obsolete computers. Seth and Stacey have performed across 2 continents with their arsenal of 8 bit weapons, which include a Commodore 64 and 128, a couple Nintendo Gameboy Classics, an Intellivision Music Synthesizer, a Suzuki Omnichord, hybrid lo-fi acoustic-electric drums, and an assortment of other vintage and toy synthesizers.

Inspired by classic videogame soundtracks and electronic music from the 70s and 80s, 8 Bit Weapon delivers a sound that is as unique as it is original. Clever melodies, nostalgic atmosphere, and energetic beats create a decidedly modern sound while maintaining a fun, lo-tech aesthetic.


8 Bit Weapon appears on G4TV's "Attack of the Show"
