Stubbs Soundtrack Stumbles into Stores on October 18Th
Company: Aspyr
LOS ANGELES, CA -- Shout! Factory announces the release of the original soundtrack to Stubbs The Zombie, the year¹s most anticipated new video game from the producer of top-seller Halo and Wideload Games. All but one of the 13 tracks are familiar ¹50s-era pop hits, handpicked and recorded
specifically for the game by alternative rockers The Flaming Lips, Cake, The Raveonettes, Death Cab For Cutie, Phantom Planet, Rogue Wave, Ben Kweller and more. Though heard throughout gameplay, these songs (with the exception of ³My Boyfriend¹s Back²) are available exclusively on Stubbs The Zombie: The Soundtrack, in stores October 18th.

Scheduled for release by Aspyr Media just in time for Halloween, Stubbs The Zombie is a third person action game that uses an updated Halo engine to
deliver a stirring take on one man¹s hunger for love, justiceŠ and brains. In the game, players step into the shoes of the rebel himself; former
door-to-door salesman Stubbs is now a wisecracking zombie terrorizing the ultra-modern city of Punchbowl, Pennsylvania circa 1959, using nothing but
his own carcass and the weapons of his possessed enemies. The game¹s tongue-in-cheek humor, innovative combat and strong storyline keep gameplay as bizarre and unpredictable as its namesake.

Stubbs The Zombie: The Soundtrack is filled with brand new versions of songs made famous in Stubbs¹ own time, with the exception of Phantom Planet¹s zombie-inspired track ³The Living Dead,² which was written specifically for the game. From Brooklyn¹s indie-pop artist Ben Kweller¹s version of
³Lollipop,² to Danish garage rock duo The Raveonettes¹ rendition of ³My Boyfriend¹s Back,² these artists may be relatively new names on the music
scene, but these ¹50s pop standards are loved the world over. In addition, alternative rock veterans The Flaming Lips put the Wayne Coyne spin on ³If I Only Had A Brain,² and Cake¹s ³Strangers in the Night² wouldn¹t be complete without the band¹s standard trumpet fare. Although other video games have inspired soundtracks of their own, Stubbs The Zombie is the first to present a complete album of original recordings as opposed to the licensed music most games employ today.
