Earlier this year, Mr. Bungle revealed that they were re-recording the the group’s 1986 demo, The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny. Now, the Mike Patton-led group has announced the full details of the project.
The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo will be released on October 30. It was recorded by original Mr. Bungle members Patton, Trevor Dunn and Trey Spruance, along with Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo.
The album includes new versions of the tracks from the original demo, as well a covers of songs by S.O.D. and Corrosion of Conformity.
“Recording THIS music with THESE guys was an enormous head-rush of virtuosity and surprises every day in the studio,” says 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,” Patton continues. “There is nothing sweeter than getting your a** kicked by true comrades…where everyone has a singular drive and mission.”
Mr. Bungle played their first shows together in nearly 20 years this past February. The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo marks the group’s first full-length effort since 1999. This past June, they released a cover of the song “USA,” by The Exploited.

“Anarchy Up Your Anus”
