'Stubbs' Soundtrack Features Death Cab, Cake, more
7:56 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Today Wideload Games and Aspyr Media announced Alex Seropian's upcoming game Stubbs the Zombie will feature a soundtrack with a number of well-known independent artists. Some of the biggest names include Death Cab for Cutie, Cake, The Flaming Lips along with other up-and-commers like The Walkmen, Clem Snide and The Dandy Warhols.
While many sports-themed games procure heavy metal or R&B artists for a few tracks, it seems Aspyr used some of their recently acquired music publishing talents to get a soundtrack together than will appeal to wide audience.
The press release describes the inspiration for the game's music:
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 California’s 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.The soundtrack CD should be made available on March 15, 2005 for purchase.
