'Lollipop Chainsaw' (ALL) Gets Rockin' Soundtrack

by Rainier on Feb. 1, 2012 @ 6:08 a.m. PST

Lollipop Chainsaw is an all-new third person action game, the ‘un-deadly’ story of sweet and killer zombie hunter Juliet Starling and her quest to uncover the root of a colossal zombie outbreak.

The Lollipop Chainsaw development is led by celebrated gamemaker Goichi Suda (aka Suda51) and featuring the musical compositions of the renowned Akira Yamoaka. In addition to these two talented individuals, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has tapped Hollywood director/writer, James Gunn (Super, Slither, Dawn of the Dead, Tromeo and Juliet) to bring his cult humor and edgy storytelling to Lollipop Chainsaw.

With her wickedly awesome chainsaw in hand, Juliet slices, dices and splits her way through hordes of the undead, but soon realizes the horde is only the opening act to a festival of zombie rock lords determined to kill the chainsaw wielding cheerleader.

Lollipop Chainsaw will get an electrifying soundtrack with music by Jimmy Euringer (a.k.a. Little Jimmy Urine).  Jimmy is the front-man, songwriter and programmer for the band Mindless Self Indulgence.  He is also part of the duo known as The Left Rights, a musical side project in collaboration with fellow Mindless Self Indulgence guitarist Steve Righ?.  Urine composed all the music found in the boss battles, including voicing Zed, the punk boss, of Lollipop Chainsaw.

While Juliet is hacking and slashing her way through boss fights, Jimmy’s insane music will accompany every gory chainsaw swipe-- making this game a true combination of sex, blood and over-the-top rock n’ roll.  And if that doesn’t make your spine quiver, don't forget the previously confirmed news that original music from Akira Yamaoka will be on tap through the game, along with some familiar tunes from throughout the annals of music history.
