Mike Patton’s (Faith No More, Dead Cross) expanded score to the Stephen King sourced Netflix film, 1922, sees a July 20 release via Ipecac Recordings.

Patton spoke with the Modern School of Film’s Murmur Radio Podcast about creating the music for the film. The podcast also offers a listen to the track “Sweetheart Bandits 2: We All Get Caught”.

The release serves as Patton’s scoring follow-up to his critically-acclaimed composition to The Place Beyond The Pines, a musical outing which  Pitchfork said served as “the glue uniting the film’s three disparate sections and many different tones”, while Movie Music UK said Patton offered an“intelligent way of arranging his collages of sounds into fascinating musical effects.”

1922 is based on Stephen King’s 131-page story, telling of a man’s confession of his wife’s murder. The tale is told from the perspective of Wilfred James, the story’s unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorised by rats and, as his life begins to unravel, becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.
