This Friday sees the release of The Purge: Anarchy and Back Lot Music has provided us with a sampling of the film’s score by Nathan Whitehead. Back Lot will release the soundtrack tomorrow, July 15th.
Scoring The Purge: Anarchy was thrilling, Whitehead comments. Everything is bigger this time; the action, drama and tension all take place on a much larger scale. I worked hard to incorporate this larger scope in the music, and we went much further combining aggressive electronics and textures with a live orchestra. It was such a satisfying challenge, and I hope my score delivers the intense experience that moviegoers are looking forward to having.
