Bite Me is a web series released on December 31, 2010 about three gamers as they find themselves in the midst of a real life zombie outbreak. Relying only on the knowledge and skills they have accrued over years of gaming, these guys will have to drop the controller and pick up anything that they can use as a weapon. For the first season of the show, Machinima partnered with Microsoft and Capcom and accumulated over 14 million viewers. The second season was released on March 6, 2012 and was also aired on the premium cable network for horror, FEARnet.
Three die-hard gamers find themselves in the middle of the zombie apocalypse and realize they have to use their gaming chops to survive, rescue their friends, and ultimately save the world.
The music for the series was done by Fall On Your Sword in conjunction with Tyler Spencer.
A music video was created by TeamHeadKick for the track ‘Zombie Zombie, Skeleton’ as a promotion for the video game ‘Dead Rising 2’ and is available to watch via Youtube
Because Dick Valentine wrote these songs specifically for this show, Machinima retain the rights to release them. To date, it’s been over 4 years now since the show was broadcast and despite attempts to procure the rights for the tracks it seems Machinima have no interest in allowing these tracks to be released in full. However on the 14th June 2012, Dick Valentine performed a special show with the members of Mighty Tiny as ‘The Dick Valentine Band’ specifically to perform these songs live, Dick Valentine has also been known to perform these songs acoustically as part of his solo ‘American Troubadour’ gigs.
There are 13 songs featured throughout the series:
Back To The Yard With Drac
The Night Makes A Stain
The Eye Your Mother Warned You About
Wild Son Of The Stratosphere
