As the band prepare to unleash their awesome 2020 Halloween concert experience The Night They Came Home on Blu-ray, DVD, CD, digital and VHS (yes, really) on June 11, Mr. Bungle are premiering the killer live video for Eracist exclusively with Kerrang!.

Speaking about The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny Demo track, Trevor Dunn explains, "Eracist is a unique song in the Raging Wrath book. There was no initial demo, only a 'moshy' riff that [Mike] Patton had come up with in the ’80s, that somehow Trey [Spruance] remembered. Once that was unearthed Patton completed the tune with a double-time bridge and some lyrics about erasure and denial.

"It seems to me that it somehow feels contemporary while fitting in with our teenage songwriting style. I guess that's because it was written over a span of 35 years! You may notice that it's one of the only songs on the 'demo' that actually has a vocal melody. Back in the ’80s we were mostly thinking about drums and guitar, which of course, is really all that metal is about."
