LAKESHORE PRESENTS ‘NAVY SEALS: THE BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS’ – ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK

Featuring Original Music By Justin Raines, Brian Jackson Harris, Drew Jordan, and Michael Wickstrom

(November 4, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records will release the soundtrack for the film NAVY SEALS: THE BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS digitally on November 20, 2015. The album features the film’s original music by Justin Raines, Brian Jackson Harris, Drew Jordan, and Michael Wickstrom.

“The scenes involving the SEALs and their interaction with each other helped us to develop themes that revolve around the ‘brotherhood.’ As their struggle and situation changed, the themes evolved with them.” Described Raines.

In this action-packed thriller, an elite military team is activated for a dramatic rescue of the Vice President from the Louisiana State Capitol. When all communication is lost with the US Secret Service team, the US Government must rely on the SEAL team to save the day. Upon entering the building and securing the VP and his staff, the SEALs encounter a reporter and her cameraman who have recorded shocking images of what they believe to be an infection among the city’s population. Speculation mounts that the inhabitants of Baton Rouge have been weaponized by a biological agent, which turns its victims into vicious zombie killers. The SEALs must act fast to locate and evacuate a group of scientists that hold the only hope for a cure. Time is running out as a horde of infected zombies heads to cross the Mississippi River Bridge and threatens everyone beyond the city’s borders. NAVY SEALS: THE BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS is pandemic fun and one wild ride!

“Since the score used orchestral and electronic instruments, the most unusual choices we made involved using specific synths and drones to heighten the tension of scenes where our heroes are lurking around dark hallways and in tense situations,” said Raines. “We have all worked together on other projects, so our combined efforts and ideas really gelled well together to achieve a finished score I know we are all very proud of.”

Justin Raines holds both Bachelors and Masters degrees in music composition. An award-winning composer, Justin has had music performed all over the world. The Tad Wind Symphony from Tokyo, Japan has premiered several of his works and has released these recordings internationally.
