(January 28, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Waxwork Records presents the vinyl release of the Original HBO Series Soundtrack to Vice Principals Seasons 1 & 2, which will be available January 29th. Waxwork worked directly with Danny McBride, composer Joseph Stephens, and Vice Principals music supervisor, DeVoe Yates, to create and release a deluxe vinyl recording featuring the complete series soundtrack by Stephens. The 1980’s influenced synth-driven electronic soundtrack is both dark and droning. It’s melodic and fun, yet moody. It’s classic John Carpenter scored to the best John Hughes movie. “This score is both an homage to the soundtrack of my youth as well as an exploration into the inner depths of the everyman,” says Joseph.

Album features include the complete series music by composer Joseph Stephens, 180 gram North Jackson Warriors Blue and White colored vinyl (Season 1) and 180 Gram North Jackson Tigers Orange and White colored vinyl (Season 2), artwork by Robert Sammelin, exclusive liner notes by Danny McBride, exclusive liner notes by composer Joseph Stephens, a King Ding-A-Ling insert, a printed insert of the album cover art, and a temporary tattoo of Dr. Belinda Brown’s tattoo featuring Gamby and Russell holding hands and eating sh*t.

About Vice Principals:
Created by and starring Danny McBride and co-starring Walton Goggins, Vice Principals is a two season black comedy that focuses on an ill-tempered and disliked Vice Principal (McBride) and his ambitions to be promoted to the principal’s chair. When neither he or the co-vice principal (Goggins) are promoted, they co-conspire to overthrow and destroy the reputation of the newly appointed principal, Dr. Belinda Brown. A series of arson, blackmail, revenge, and even attempted murder ensues in the hilarious and often shocking series.

About Joseph Stephens:
At an early age, multi-instrumentalist composer/songwriter, Joseph Stephens began experimenting and creating music with 4 track tape machines, delay pedals, guitars, radios, and anything else he could get his hands on. While attending college in North Carolina, he began writing songs and scoring student films for friends which led to a working relationship with up-and-coming filmmakers. A frequent collaborator with Danny McBride, Jody Hill, and David Gordon Green, Stephens’ work has included scores for the HBO’s series, Vice Principals and Eastbound and Down, the TBS’s series The Last O.G., as well as features, Observe and Report, Flower, The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter, and Arizona among others; he’s also written songs for films All The Real Girls, Undertow, and Halloween.

Up next is season 2 of The Last O.G. starring Tracy Morgan, the upcoming HBO’s series The Righteous Gemstones starring Danny McBride and John Goodman, and feature Under The Eiffel Tower from The Orchard.
