We’ve often asked, “Is it Thursday, yet?” but now and forevermore, IT’S THURSDAY NIGHT!
With the new campaign off and running, we’re thrilled to share our new opening title AND our new theme song right along with it! And why wait? Check it out below!
It’s pretty epic, right!
“It’s Thursday Night” is written by our resident bard Sam Riegel along with Peter Habib and features vocals by the ENTIRE Critical Role cast!
And the catchy song is available for purchase or streaming now via iTunes & Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, Tidal, and is coming soon to additional platforms!

As you can see, this was an epic video shoot in which our stage was transformed into a fantastic adventuring set to accompany our new and epic theme song.
