Arlington's Man Factory Releases Street Fight!!! Round Two, The Second In Its Three-Disc Street Fighter Rock Opera

Surely, you've been waiting on the edge of your seat for this news: Today, Arlington's Man Factory releases the second album in its planned pop-rock opera trilogy centered around the Street Fighter video game.

Street Fight!!! Round Two follows the band's 2008-released Street Fight! Round One, an album that largely centered around the video game's characters of Chun Li, Ryu and Zangief. That one's still available as a pay-what-you-want-even-if-it's-nothing download. But the new one will cost you--the band is charging $10 for hard copies of the disc and $7 for downloads. Fortunately, it brings the goods: This second installment, which can be stream in Ken, Dhalsim, Sagat, Vega, Guile and, of course, Blanka (see right).

After the jump, stream Man Factory's ode to the not-quite-incredible hulk, a song called "Blanka Sings the Blues." And catch Man Factory live on Saturday night, as it performs these tracks live at The Cavern.
