Blood Hive (Original Score From The Showtime Series Yellowjackets) Releases Digitally!

“The leaders of ’90s bands Shudder to Think and That Dog have gone spooky, to great end, with music that’s helped turn the Showtime series into a phenomenon.” – Variety⁠

“If Shrill was the duo’s pop album and TheRepublic of Sarah a Radiohead-style art-drama, then Yellowjackets is their angsty goth record, with a side of the supernatural.” – Pitchfork⁠

Lakeshore Records has released Blood Hive—Original Score from the Showtime Series, Yellowjackets featuring music by Craig Wedren, best known as the frontman for seminal post-hardcore band Shudder to Think, and Anna Waronker of indie pop darlings that dog., who scored most of the show’s episodes; and composer Theodore Shapiro who composed the music for the show’s pilot. The strikingly sinister score harkens back to the punk, grunge and garage scenes of the 90’s and provides a darkly ominous backdrop to the horror series. The album, which contains an extended version of the main title song “No Return,” is available now digitally on April 15 on all major digital music services.  View full album details below.

Penelope is a modern day fairy tale about an aristocratic girl who is born cursed with a facial disfigurement in the form of a pig’s snout.  Only through the unconditional love of a man can the curse be lifted.  Watch this interview with Composer Joby Talbot, as he explains how he expressed the various character’s personalities (wicked, comical) and what Penelope sees for the first time (excitement, wonder), when she, isolated all her life, finally gets to experience the outside world freely.
