For me, AMC's The Walking Dead wouldn't be nearly as memorable without the amazing score by composer Bear McCreary, and next month zombie-loving vinyl fans will finally be able to add that soundtrack LP to their record collection, thanks to the efforts of indie record label Spacelab9.
The deluxe edition soundtrack will be pressed in “Black Smoke” and “Blood Red” colored vinyl, with an additional short run of 200 units in “Zombie Flesh Green” also available exclusively from the Spacelab9 web shop (the earlier picture-disc version, shown below, is now sold out). The LP is packaged in a gatefold sleeve featuring full-color images from the series, and the first pressing will also include an 18x24” poster.
The limited edition will hit stores April 15th, but you can preorder yours from Spacelab9 starting on April 1st. A short supply of turntable slipmats featuring original zombie art by Travis Pitts will also be available with preorders on a first-come, first-served basis... so be quick!
If you're collecting all things Walking Dead, you might want a sneak peek at McFarlane Toys' next lineup of TWD action figures from this year's Toy Fair!
