Mr. Bungle drop 'Eracist'

2020-09-24 by Fernando Alves CONTRIBUTOR | 61 Comments
Mr. Bungle are streaming a video for the song 'Eracist', taken from their upcoming album The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny Demo, out October 30th via Ipecac Recordings. The album was produced by Mr. Bungle, recorded by Husky Höskulds at Studio 606, and mixed by Jay Ruston.

'Eracist' video can be streamed below.


Directed by Derrick Scocchera

"Recording THIS music with THESE guys was an enormous head-rush of virtuosity and surprises every day in the studio," explains Patton. "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."

Trevor Dunn adds: "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."

The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo tracklist:

1. Grizzly Adams
2. Anarchy Up Your Anus
3. Raping Your Mind
4. Hypocrites / Habla Español O Muere
5. Bungle Grind
6. Methematics
7. Eracist
8. Spreading The Thighs of Death
9. Loss For Words
10. Glutton For Punishment
11. Sudden Death

Seems more like FNM track (or even Dead Cross) than something off of California-era Bungle, which was where my head was when I dove in.

Don't know why. They toured on this material, and the first single they released was from this original EP. The whole deal was just re-visiting this old material.

Guys, it’s not that hard to figure out. The album is a re-recording of their original thrash demos, it’s in the fuckin title lol. If thrash ain’t your thing then just don’t bother with this one!

"lol why are people mad at this? If you want to listen to California, listen to California." People mad because Bungle goes on an indefinite hiatus after their most popular album, then when they do decide to come back it's to tour on some cassette tape EP, and then they decide to re-record it for some reason. I never even listened to that EP in the first place, since I assumed it was just some garbage demo haha. Which sounds like I wasn't too far off.

This is true, but isn't this song in particular a newly written original?

That said, if they're having fun, good for them! There's certainly some novelty in replaying your demo songs 30 years down the line, I won't argue that at all. I personally don't like this stuff.

I'm treating this like a twitter post of a band in their re-genesis (hopefully)
on the bright side that Tomahawk album should be solid as that and fantomas are his most consistent projects for me

not sure that anyone, especially the band, is acting that way. seems like an excuse to pal up and have some dumb fun playing a style they're not gonna pretend to be over - fair shit. doesn't get me excited, but there's no cause for shade

I love that Bungle’s first album in 20 years is a re-recording of their thrash metal demo. They play what they want. If it pisses people off, that’s even better. Very punk rock.
