Does Mike Patton ever take a break? The latest project the Faith No More (and many other acts) frontman is undertaking is the score to Stephen King-based thriller, 1922, which you can watch now on Netflix.

Patton’s expanded score will be released via Ipecac Recordings in 2018.

The 1922 offering follows-up Patton’s critically-acclaimed score for The Place Beyond The Pines, a musical outing that Pitchfork said served as “the glue uniting the film’s three disparate sections and many different tones,” and Movie Music UK said Patton offered an “intelligent way of arranging his collages of sounds into fascinating musical effects.”

1922 is based on Stephen King’s 131-page story telling of a man’s confession of his wife’s murder. The tale is told from the perspective of Wilfred James, the story’s unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and, as his life begins to unravel, becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.
