DEATH WALTZ RECORDING COMPANY RETURNS TO
TWIN PEAKS WITH THE "FIRE WALK WITH ME"
SOUNDTRACK ON VINYL
Alamo Drafthouse will celebrate the release with 25th anniversary screenings
across the country
Mondo Music label Death Waltz Recording Company announces its release of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me on vinyl for the 25th anniversary of David Lynch's nightmarish cinematic continuation of the beloved television series. The vinyl features Angelo Badalamenti's gorgeous, eerie score with audio approved by the composer, and director David Lynch - approved artwork by Sam Smith and packaging by Jay Shaw. The clever design is the perfect complement to Death Waltz's release of the Twin Peaks score on vinyl from 2016. The soundtrack will be available for purchase on January 25 at Mondotees.com.
Alamo Drafthouse is also celebrating the film's anniversary and soundtrack release with screenings of Fire Walk With Me at select locations nationwide. The screenings will take place in January, with optional ticket bundles including the 2XLP soundtrack. Visit drafthouse.com for tickets and more details. There will also be a pop-up show at The Regent Theater in Los Angeles. Visit theregenttheater.com for tickets and more details.
"Fire Walk With Me is an altogether more brooding affair than the Twin Peaks series soundtrack. Badalamenti won a grammy for the title track of this LP and it's not hard to see why - it's dangerous and bursting with smokey jazz thanks to Jimmy Scott. We went back to the master tapes in the Warner Archives and had this recut to fit across two LPs as the score clocks in at 51 minutes. It sounds incredible and punchy, but super nuanced too," said Mondo Record Label Manager Spencer Hickman.
"The simple truth is that, for years, too few people had heard the score because the film has been so widely, wrong-headedly dismissed. Today, Fire Walk With Me is recognized as a lost classic, and Badalamenti's music is right at the heart of its reassessment. Having loved it from the outset (I gave the film a rare rave review on its first release), I remain utterly devoted to this superb soundtrack album, and to the shimmering visions which it still conjures up after more than two decades of delirious, devoted listening," film critic Mark Kermode (excerpt from the liner notes).
