Mr. Bungle will be releasing a re-recorded version of their “The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny” demo on October 30.

The first single, a re-recorded version of “Raping Your Mind,” can be found below:

“The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny” Track Listing:

01. “Grizzly Adams”
02. “Anarchy Up Your Anus” (feat. Rhea Perlman)
03. “Raping Your Mind”
04. “Hypocrites” / “Habla Español O Muere” (Stormtroopers Of Death cover)
05. “Bungle Grind ”
06. “Methematics”
07. “Eracist”
08. “Spreading The Thighs of Death”
09. “Loss For Words” (Corrosion Of Conformity cover)
10. “Glutton For Punishment”
11. “Sudden Death”

Patton commented:

“Recording THIS music with THESE guys was an enormous head-rush of virtuosity and surprises every day in the studio. Trey’s video game-esque solos, Scott’s bionic right hand and cyborg-like precision, Dave’s caveman-meets-Bobby Brady-like drum fills, Trevor’s solid foundation and laser-focus to detail. There is nothing sweeter than getting your ass kicked by true comrades…where everyone has a singular drive and mission.”

Dunn added:

“Recording this record felt like we were finally utilizing our Ph.Ds in Thrash Metal. All we had to do was go back to our original professors for some additional guidance and talk them into joining us. Turns out we were A+ students. We even went for extra credit by revisiting some tunes that we’d given up on back in the day. It was less like a trip of nostalgia and more like the refining of an original, worthy document. We were haunted for 35 years by the fact that this music wasn’t given it’s due respect. Now we can die.”

Benante commented:

“How the hell did you guys hook up with Lee Ving??? He’s a fucking legend!

We will surely be asked that question too many times to answer over the rest of our lives so… He DM’d Scott on Instagram. Yep, sometimes social media is awesome.

First off, the fact that Lee was even paying attention to our Instajams blows my mind. And then he hit Scott up and asked if we could do something together. Could we? Holy shit yes we can! Scott couldn’t text Me and Danny fast enough and we felt the same as He did We are all such huge fans of Lee and Fear.

The Record, Fear’s debut album was such a direct influence on S.O.D. They were hard as hell and twice as tight. I used to watch their performances in Decline of the Western Civilization over and over, marveling in their ability to not give a fuck. When scott started drawing the S.O.D. comic strips in 1984 Sgt. D was basically a zombie Lee. For us they were inspiration and our aspiration. We even covered I Love Livin’ In The City live to fill out our set (S.E.O.D. was only 28 minutes long).

I replied, “I Don’t Care About You” to Scott’s query about doing a track with Lee and Danny and I were in. Lee was just as excited about doing this as we were. Turns out he’s a Fan! Have fun watching/listening my friends, we did!

Thank you Lee! Thank you to Andy Lagis and Dima Levanchuk for the mix and Vid edit”
