Mr. Bungle, who are mere days away from the release of The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo (Oct. 30, Ipecac Recordings), have shared a third and final single ahead of the 11-song release, streaming “Sudden Death”.
The song’s arrival comes as the Bay Area-born band, which features core Mr. Bungle members Trevor Dunn, Mike Patton and Trey Spruance with Scott Ian (Anthrax, S.O.D.) and Dave Lombardo (Dead Cross, Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies), prepare for the Halloween virtual live concert experience dubbed “The Night They Came Home!” The online event screens at 12 noon pacific/3 pm eastern on Oct. 31 with the on-demand program available for the following 72 hours. Tickets and exclusive merchandise are available now via http://www.mrbungle.live. As Rolling Stone said in their Fall music preview: “musical curveballs are encoded in Mr. Bungle’s DNA” so fans can, and should, expect the unexpected.
“Mr. Bungle is featured on the current cover of Revolver. The magazine, in partnership with Ipecac Recordings, released a highly limited variant (400 copies) of The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo yesterday: https://shop.revolvermag.com/products/mr-bungle-x-revolver-limited-edition-2lp-piss-yellow-collaboration-only-400-made
Mr. Bungle announced the forthcoming release of The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo to great fanfare. The album news followed a spate of early 2020 live performances that sold out immediately and saw the band playing to some of its biggest audiences ever. The album, which is a proper recording of Mr. Bungle’s much traded, yet unreleased, 1986 demo cassette, has been previewed with singles and videos for “Eracist” (https://youtu.be/Cug4UPwcvlo) and “Raping Your Mind” (https://youtu.be/3U5ZKKxqUzY).
