By fusing country and rock, “THESE GUNS” achieves an authentic, driving and energetic sound. Its thematically considered lyrics capture the rebellious spirit of the American Volunteer Group that flew combat for China in World War 2. The song was custom-produced for the sync to be a natural fit for Ace Maddox' air-combat action game FLYING TIGERS: SHADOWS OVER CHINA, in which it's played during the end credits.
Imperial North Music Agency, an A&R sync agency and digital record label that connects select musical talent with the games industry et al, and Operation Supply Drop, a leading military charity that supports active duty troops and veterans with games and entertainment to “make fun where there is none”, has partnered up to bring you Norman Wayne's country-rock EP “THESE GUNS”.

In addition to the original country-rock version of “THESE GUNS” featured in FLYING TIGERS: SHADOWS OVER CHINA, the EP release premieres the first ever “countrywave” remix by Adam Skog (aka Irving Force), plus a “Melbourne Bounce” 128 BPM EDM-remix presented by Operation Supply Drop & 8-Bit Salute.
Operation Supply Drop is a 501c3 nonprofit organization building lasting networks with the larger community to drive mutual support for today’s active duty military, their families and the veteran population. In response to a growing need from our deployed troops requesting generationally relevant gear from back home, Operation Supply Drop was founded in 2010 with a focus on delivering “Video Game Care Packages Downrange.” As we grew and service members returned home to face various transitional challenges, our objective evolved to identify and address the underlying needs of these veterans and their families. Through six defined and complementary international programs, Operation Supply Drop builds and reinforces the veteran support ecosystem from Deployment through Transition and Community Integration with distinct significant impact each step of the way.
