Leave it to Mike Patton and Mr. Bungle to really know how ring in the Halloween season.

On Friday, the newly reinvigorated Mr. Bungle released The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo, a re-recorded version of the band’s original 1986 cassette demo. If this sounds random, the context surrounding this project makes it all clear.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit the ‘pause’ button on the world, Patton and his colleagues reconvened for a series of instantly sold-out concerts.

The project, which originally existed from 1985 until 2000 and was around during the same time as Patton’s “other” band, Faith No More, was an aggressively unpredictable musical force among its three full-length albums. “Genre” didn’t exist, in its place was bold experimentation and a fierce sense of originality that made the group legendary.

The sold-out early 2020 gigs featured Patton and core Mr. Bungle band mates Trevor Dunn and Trey Spruance flanked by hard rock/metal legends Scott Ian (of Anthrax and S.O.D.) and Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies) for what can really be called a “supergroup” of epic proportions. At those gigs, they performed the Raging Wrath demo in its entirety, and the newly recorded version of the album is now available.

If all of this wasn’t already exciting enough for Mr. Bungle fans, there’s also a very special (and undeniably twisted) live stream concert experience coming on Saturday, Halloween, titled The Night They Came Home:
