Mike Patton Completes Major Motion Film Score for “Crank 2″
Mike Patton (Fantômas, Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Peeping Tom, Mondo Cane, etc.) has just completed his first major motion film score for the film Crank 2: High Voltage – set for April 17 release..
While Patton has often dabbled in film whether it was lending his voice to the creatures in I Am Legend, his score for the indie film noir short A Perfect Place or FANTOMAS’ film scoring interpretation via The Director’s Cut, this marks his first proper film score.
Created during the latter half of 2008, Patton holed up in a Los Angeles studio and eliminated all other projects during the recording.
Patton has also provided vocals to several video games including “Bionic Commando,” “Portal,” “Left 4 Dead,” and “The Darkness.” He also lent his voice to Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse (character name: Rikki Kix). Patton just wrapped up a trek across Australia with Fantômas as part of the Big Day Out festival.
His upcoming schedule includes:
March 19 – San Francisco, CA @ Great American Music Hall w/ Zu
April 17 – Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival
…as well as the highly anticipated reunion tour with FAITH NO MORE in Europe this summer.
