London, 9th April 2020 – Laced Records and Capcom team up once again to bring fans Resident Evil™ soundtracks on audiophile-quality vinyl. Pre-orders are now open for the Resident Evil 4 soundtrack on four LPs, featuring remastered audio from the 2005 Nintendo GameCube™ title, and brand new sleeve artwork by Boris Moncel. 

 

Resident Evil 4 fundamentally changed the survival horror series by injecting action gameplay and moving to a more action-packed over-the-shoulder camera. The gaming world continues to celebrate it as one of the most tightly designed and inventive video games ever made — a true classic that inspired many other games across several genres. For the music score, composers Shusaku Uchiyama and Misao Senbongi ratcheted up the tension with layers of unsettling electronic sounds and percussion loops; and also created fan favourite tracks “Serenity” and “Save Theme” suffused with anxious, atmospheric synths.  

The soundtrack has been remastered specifically for this release and will be pressed onto audiophile-quality, 180g heavyweight vinyl LPs to be housed in a special gatefold box set. It is available as a Standard Edition (traditional black discs) and Limited Edition (‘muddy gold’ discs — exclusive to the Laced Records store.)

The Resident Evil 4 (Original Soundtrack) quadruple vinyl can be pre-ordered now via www.lacedrecords.com (www.lacedrecords.co outside of the USA) and will ship in June 2020.

Price: GBP £70 / USD $80

The vinyl set is only available in North America and EMEA (Europe, Middle-East, and Africa) territories.
