Mr Bungle will release their first album in 21 years this autumn, 'The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny Demo'.

The follow-up to 1999's 'California' is scheduled to arrive on October 30 through frontman Mike Patton's own Ipecac Records.

The LP will contain 11 tracks consisting of cuts written for the experimental group's 1986 demo cassette 'Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny', plus a reworked cover of S.O.D.'s Hypocrites / Habla Español O Muere and a new take on Corrosion of Conformity's Loss For Words. 

To celebrate the news, the band — consisting of original trio of Patton, Trey Spruance and Trevor Dunn plus original Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and Anthrax’s Scott Ian — have dropped an animated video for a rerecorded version of thrasher Raping Your Mind, streaming below. Patton said:

"Returning to where Mr Bungle started. Recording THIS music with THESE guys was an enormous head-rush of virtuosity and surprises every day in the studio. Trey’s video game-esque solos, Scott’s bionic right hand and cyborg-like precision, Dave’s caveman-meets-Bobby Brady-like drum fills, Trevor’s solid foundation and laser-focus to detail.

"There is nothing sweeter than getting your ass kicked by true comrades…where everyone has a singular drive and mission. New Bungle on October 30th!"

The news comes after the release of the band's first recorded music in two decades back in June, when they dropped a cover of the Exploited's USA.

1. Grizzly Adams
2. Anarchy Up Your Anus
