Lakeshore Records congratulates soundtrack partners Newtown on their Best Documentary win for this year’s Peabody Awards! Lakeshore released the soundtrack last year, which features original music by composers including Fil Eisler, Mark Barden, Jeff Beal, George Clinton, Chris Drake, Deborah Lurie & Robert Duncan, Dino Meneghin, Blake Neely, Mark Renk, Mikael Sandgren, and Rob Simonsen. The deeply personal documentary about the Sandy Hook school shooting tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut was filmed over three years and features never-before-heard testimonies to tell the story of the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is back in action with Taran Killam’s slapstick caper, Killing Gunther! As “Gunther,” “The Arnold” is the ultimate contract killer, and young assassins are after him. Released today on blu-ray and DVD, who can resist a good Schwarzenegger film? Featuring score by Dino Meneghin (MTV’s “Teen Wolf” and “Eye Candy”), the soundtrack is out now via Lakeshore Records.
With an exciting and ever fresh mix of electronic action music and emotional piano based pieces, “Killing Gunther” reaches unexpected depths as a standalone listen; the range between “Gabe’s theme” and “A little bit persona – remembering Blake” or “Blake’s package” makes me think that the movie as well might hide a little more than expected. – Soundtrack Dreams

Lakeshore Records will release the soundtrack to Killing Gunther, available digitally on Friday, December 1.
