Glenn Danzig Wrote a Song for AMC's "The Walking Dead," Singer Says New Tune Will Appear on Soundtrack
There are few better pairings than AMC's gory zombie thriller The Walking Dead and "Last Caress" singer Glenn Danzig. The former Misfits frontman recently revealed that a new song of his may appear on an upcoming episode of the hit TV series. Danzig actually wrote the song specifically for the show, which is in its fifth season currently.
Danzig was on Eddie Trunk's SiriusXM show last month when he relayed the news, Blabbermouth notes. "I actually wrote that song kind of just because I became a fan of the show. And I'm, like, 'I should write a song for them and see if they wanna use it,'" he said. "And then my lawyer, Peter, was telling me about the soundtrack, and I submitted it, and they loved it."
The singer confirmed that the song will "definitely" be on the soundtrack, but he's not sure if/when it will air on the show. "I don't know if it's gonna be in an upcoming episode - they wanna find a place for it there," he added.
Danzig admitted that he didn't watch the show from its infancy. He got hooked later.
"I was surprised," he said. "I watched one episode. 'Cause someone had said, 'You've gotta watch this.' And I remember the indie comic. 'Cause I still have my comic company. And I remember the indie comic. And I started watching it, and then I watched another episode, and I [was like], 'Oh, I've gotta see all these back episodes.' [Laughs] It's a great show."
The Walking Dead: AMC Original Soundtrack, Vol. 1 came out in March 2013. It featured Delta Spirit, Of Monsters and Men, and one of the show's stars, Emily Kinney. The disc peaked at 54 on the Billboard 200 chart. Vol.2 came out last March.
No official release date or tracklist has been released for Vol. 3, but March may be a safe bet.
