LONDON, UK— 17TH JUNE, 2021 — Today, Ubisoft revealed an extensive partnership with award-winning songwriter and producer The Toxic Avenger, for the composition of original music for the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® European League. Building upon the Rainbow Six Siege Main Theme, the European League new music will enrich the playday streams and offer viewers original music to enjoy during their weekly esports rendez-vous. Gaming enthusiast, The Toxic Avenger will bring his very personal and uncompromising sound mastery within the electro/techno/disco scene to the European League, starting with the release of the new official musical theme of the league.
 
Starting now, fans can tune in on rainbow6.com/live to check out the official theme tune during the broadcast of the European League’s playdays.
 
This season-long collaboration also includes the composition of music loops for the league’s broadcast, exclusive music for trailers, as well as a dedicated EP for the European League, to be revealed later this season.
 
“It’s a real pleasure for me to collaborate with Ubisoft on Rainbow Six Siege, and a kid’s dream to work on video games,” said The Toxic Avenger. “Like any other kid who grew up in the 80s and 90s, video games and video games music nourished me. I tried to bring my touch the Rainbow Six theme while staying true to it. With respect, but no deference! I can’t wait for fans to discover what we have in store next!”
 
“We are thrilled to work alongside such a talented European artist, with strong involvement in the entertainment industry, including video games,” said Jérémy Somville, Esports Brand and Business Development Manager at Ubisoft EMEA. “The new European League music is the result of a true hand-in-hand collaboration. Our hearts were set on creating a theme tune that the Siege community would be excited about while making sure that The Toxic Avenger could express his music and really show his fresh take on the Siege theme. We can’t wait for the fans to discover the result of this collaboration.”

About the Rainbow Six Esports Global Program
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege’s Esports includes 4 main regions, Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia-Pacific. All four regions run in parallel their own dedicated regional leagues, all feeding into one unique and global race towards a qualification for the Six Invitational, the pinnacle of the Rainbow Six Siege competitive year. As teams across the four regions face off in regional and global competitions, featuring 3 Majors and regional leagues, they will be ranked based on an in-depth point system that rewards sustained performance. Each competitive Season runs for nearly a year, from March through the following February. Each Season will be divided into 4 quarters. The first three quarters correspond to the 3 “Stages” of the regional leagues and conclude with a Six Major bringing together 16 of the world’s best teams – four per region across the four regions. Each stage awards prize money and points for the Global Standings. The Global Standings determine the sixteen teams earning a spot to the annual Six Invitational. Following the 3 stages, the last quarter of the season will be dedicated to regional finals and relegations. The season will then conclude with the Six Invitational that will crown the world’s best team. Four additional teams will also have a chance to qualify for the Six Invitational through Regional Open Qualifiers, making the Six invitational a 20-team competition.

About The Toxic Avenger and Enchanté Records
The career of The Toxic Avenger since 2007 is still difficult to classify, between French Touch electro-disco and pop (Daft Punk, Vitalic, Justice), dark-electro (Sebastian, Gesaffelstein, French 79) or the experiments of Mr Oizo. And far from the comfortable and reducing "box" of "synthwave" or "maximal" electro where we would like to classify it for a long time. He claims to be at the crossroads of English house, the techno spirit of Detroit, electronic pop or quite simply a disciple of Giorgio Moroder's synthetic disco. Its sound line has grown but remains faithful to its original vision. He is one of the most « bankable » music producer for video games ("Furi", prize for best music at the Game Awards in 2016, Ubisoft, EA, ...), for cinema (Prize for best film music at the festival of Gerardmer's Fantastic Film in 2018 for "Mutafukaz"), he also signs music for pubs (Hugo Boss, Armani, YSL). He has set up with three people, his own label, Enchanté Records, producing young melodic techno artists (Gone, Jaffna) or established artists from the French Touch (Maxence Cyrin, CruSz).
