The legendary Wu-Tang Clan rapper and Evil Dead fan creates an original anthem for the multiplayer action game, coming to consoles and PC on May 13
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – May 6, 2022 – Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games have announced the release of “Come Get Some,” an original new song created by legendary recording artist and hardcore Evil Dead fan Method Man and renowned hip-hop producer Statik Selektah. Steeped with lyrical references to the Evil Dead universe, “Come Get Some” features original voice samples from Bruce Campbell as the iconic Ash Williams. The track is available now on major digital streaming platforms and stores. It will also be showcased in the official launch trailer for Evil Dead: The Game when it releases on May 13.
One of the most respected hip-hop producers in the world and a veteran of original soundtracks for franchises like Grand Theft Auto, Midnight Club, Max Payne, and more, Statik Selektah built the soundscape for “Come Get Some” around samples taken from The Evil Dead’s original 1981 soundtrack, provided courtesy of renowned composer Joseph LoDuca, who created original music for the game, as well. The song also features guest verses from two members of the next generation of Wu-Tang Clan: Method Man’s son PXWER and U-God’s son iNTeLL.
The debut of “Come Get Some” follows the release of the game’s official theme song earlier this week. Created by long-time Evil Dead collaborator and Emmy Award-winning composer Joseph LoDuca and Saber Music Director Steve Molitz, the track can be heard here.
Inspired by the iconic horror, humor and action of the Evil Dead franchise, Evil Dead: The Game brings the series’ biggest characters together in a pulse-pounding battle with the forces of darkness.
