Today sees the release of Mike Patton’s extended score to the film 1922, the horror/drama movie based on the Stephen King novella of the same name which premiered on Netflix last September.

Officially titled 1922 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), the score is an addition to the Faith No More and Mr. Bungle frontman’s continuing film work, which also includes scores to The Place Beyond The Pines, A Perfect Place and The Solitude of Prime Numbers. Below you can stream the entire release, but we turn our attention to the final track from the score, titled “Sweetheart Bandits 2 (We All Get Caught).”

The moody and piece closes out the score to the story which is told from from the perspective of Wilfred James, an unreliable narrator in the King novella who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and as his life begins to unravel he becomes convinced his dead spouse has returned from the grave to haunt him.

The score for 1922 is released via Ipecac Recordings across multiple formats, including a “hardwood” colored vinyl that also includes a high-quality download of the album’s 21 tracks. The full list of configurations can be found and ordered at this location. Most recently, Patton has been spending his time fronting the hardcore punk outfit Dead Cross, which also features former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. The band followed up last year’s self-titled debut album with a self-titled EP that came out this May.
