Big news from here: Rocko’s Modern Life is getting a soundtrack release! Surprise, surprise, it drops today. Some of my favorite pieces of music from the first two seasons is being digitally released today and is available wherever you stream your music. I’ve been waiting thirty years for this to happen. I can’t wait to tell you more- but for now I want to tell you about the band.

I play guitar, keyboards and clarinet until I had to fire myself. 
The music was recorded and mixed by Patrick Derivaz at Sorcerer Studios and Bob FitzSimons at Globe Studios.

Irwin added that, although the initial album is only being released digitally for now, he has his "fingers crossed that there will more tracks released in the fall along with a vinyl release."
