Original Recordings by Current
Popular Bands Exclusively for Stubbs the Zombie: The Soundtrack
AUSTIN, TX (November 18, 2004) –
Aspyr Media, Inc., an entertainment publisher delivering fun in the form of
games, music and DVDs, is set to release the STUBBS THE ZOMBIE: THE SOUNDTRACK
on March 15, 2005. The songs for Stubbs the Zombie: The Soundtrack were
handpicked and recorded for the game by some of todays most popular rock bands,
as well as some great up-and-coming artists. Being released by Aspyr Media, the
soundtrack and game are a perfect example of how Aspyr merges multimedia
platforms into a full entertainment experience.
The game Stubbs the Zombie is set in
a fictional City of the Future in 1959. To complement this theme, the tracks
are new versions of songs made famous in this era, with the exception of the
zombie inspired original track the Living Dead by Californias Phantom Planet.
Stubbs the Zombie: The Soundtrack is one of the first game soundtracks to
feature all original recordings, as opposed to the licensed music most games
employ today. The songs are as unique as the game and can be found only on the
Stubbs the Zombie soundtrack.
"Being a part of this soundtrack was
a no-brainer. We’re all huge video game geeks and even bigger zombie film fans,
said Alex Greenwald of Phantom Planet. So, it made sense to contribute a track
about joining a legion of undead."
The track listing is as follows: Ben
Kweller Lollipop The Raveonettes My Boyfriends Back Death Cab for Cutie
Earth Angel Rogue Wave Everyday Cake Strangers in the Night The Walkmen
There Goes My Baby The Dandy Warhols All I Have to Do Is Dream Oranger Mr.
Sandman The Flaming Lips If I Only Had a Brain Clem Snide Tears on My Pillow
Rose Hill Drive Shakin All Over Milton Mapes Lonesome Town Phantom Planet
The Living Dead (original song)
In Stubbs the Zombie, players take
on the role of the rebel himself Stubbs, a wisecracking zombie who takes on an
ultra-modern city of the future using nothing but his own carcass and the
weapons of his possessed enemies. The games tongue-in-cheek humor, innovative
combat and strong storyline keep Stubbs the Zombies gameplay as bizarre and
unpredictable as its namesake.
On his quest, Stubbs lurches his way
through visually captivating indoor/outdoor environments in and around of
Punchbowl, PA, a gleaming city built during the Eisenhower administration to
show off the ultra-futuristic technology of the 21st century. Stubbs
brain-eating adventure brings him through bustling shopping districts and
verdant farmlands to battle mad scientists, rural militiamen and the world’s
deadliest barbershop quartet. His enemies have shotguns, tanks, and all manner
of futuristic weaponry. All Stubbs has is his own rotting corpse, a distinct
lack of pain or conscience, and the ability to turn foes into zombie allies.
