In 2020, Mr. Bungle released “The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo” (https://lnk.to/MBWrath), its first new music in over 20 years, was received with great fanfare. The album news followed a spate of sold out 2020 live performances, which saw Mr. Bungle playing to some of its biggest audiences ever.
After 15 years of inactivity and 21 since its last album, avant-metal weirdos Mr. Bungle reappeared from the mists of time to re-record the 1986 demo. Not content to merely rehash their high school days, core trio Mike Patton, Trey Spruance and Trevor Dunn enlisted help from Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo.
