“Random Acts of Violence” Comes Slashing Your Way From Dine Alone Records

Friday, October 23, 2020 | News

Coming soon from Dine Alone Records, the release of the original score for Jay Baruchel’s debut horror effort, RANDOM ACTS OF VIOLENCE featuring music by Wade MacNeil (member of Alexisonfire and Gallows) and Andrew “Ango” Macpherson (Goon: Last of the Enforcers, Dark Side of the Ring). A physical pre-order is available as of today, with a digital version to be released on streaming October 30th.

Having lent their talents to the Far Cry video game series, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege, and horror films like The Ranger, MacNeil and Macpherson have created an ominous yet understated and unsettling style of electronica. Characterized by its atmospheric soundscapes and a pulsating, hypnotic edge, RANDOM ACTS OF VIOLENCE’s score perfectly echoes the themes depicted in the uncompromising, visually stunning film.

Says MacNeil, “When you’re scoring a film you are creating a soundtrack for a world that doesn’t exist. Finding the sounds and melodies for that bleak stretch of rust belt highway in ‘Random Acts’ was exhilarating. Making music to frighten people is such a unique way to spend your time in a studio. I love it.”
