I absolutely hope this means we'll get another "Here Comes The Night" remix: Dubstep Edition.

Looks like Bruce added some backing vocals for Skrillex - with a Shure 57 no less. Wonder if that track will end up on a full tune. Gotta admit, it's strange to not see Bruce in a studio with Mike...but I kinda wish Bruce would do more recording on his own, apart from touring with Mike.

And production aside, Id so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591

Interesting development, given that Bruce gave a shout out to what I thought are a rather obscure electronic group ('Knower') in this interview from the other week

Man I totally forgot about this LOL I remembered he worked with VDPs but I forgot about the absurdity of it. Did anything ever come of that collaboration?

From Wikipedia (big thanks to whoever wrote all that up):

In August 2011, Parks was contacted by electronic musician Skrillex, who requested that he supply orchestral arrangements. Parks admitted in 2013, "When Skrillex called me up, I'd never heard of him. I pretended I knew who he was. "'Send me the piece, and if I feel able, I'll do it.' I don't have any hobbies, you know. I love music; I do it everyday [sic]. And he said, 'Oh, thank you, Mr. Parks. We will destroy the world.' I said, 'Okay...' I Google him and there he is, on YouTube, in front of 30,000 people, pouring beer onto a laptop computer, at which point the crowd jumps into the mosh pit and has an erection....I have two things I can do: Run away from all this in horror because I'm so superior, or dig in and serve and try to bring hope to the hopeless. That can be done behind the curtain, and that's where I'm very comfortable working....I treat every job as if it were the very thing that will define me. Nothing is beneath me. I think that is evident to people who ask my best."[47] His arranging work was released in December 2011 as the iTunes-exclusive bonus track "Skrillex Orchestral Suite by Varien" on the Bangarang EP.

his description of the mosh pit LOL

I don't think I ever knew that anything was released from that collaboration. You can hear a sample of the track here - really not sure what exactly VDPs did for this track:
