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.
