BETTER NOISE FILMS recently released their revenge-driven horror thriller THE RETALIATORS  in over 1,000 cinemas across the globe. The film was praised as a “blunt, bloody and brutally bombastic slice of genre cinema” (Backseat Mafia) and stars Michael Lombardi (FX’s ‘Rescue Me,’ ‘The Deuce’) and Marc Menchaca (‘Ozark,’ ‘Black Mirror’), alongside featured appearances from a who’s-who of modern active rock chart-leading musicians including TOMMY LEE (MÖTLEY CRÜE), IVAN MOODY and ZOLTAN BATHORY (FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH) and JACOBY SHADDIX (PAPA ROACH).The above-mentioned musicians, and several top active rock acts including ICE NINE KILLSTHE HU, BAD WOLVES, HYRO THE HERO and ASKING ALEXANDRIA are featured on the film’s soundtrack which is out now, on CD, LP, Cassette Tape and digitally via Better Noise MusicThe soundtrack also includes a bonus track, “Cops Are Here,” from THE RETALIATORS official score by ‘Stranger Things’ Emmy-winning composers KYLE DIXON and MICHAEL STEINThe video was directed by the film’s producer and lead Michael Lombardi.https://youtu.be/Qb60WtpuZ-s Listen herehttps://theretaliators.ffm.to/retaliatorssscore  Just as The Lost Boys and The Crow defined the late 80’s and ‘90s alt-rock scene respectively, THE RETALIATORS is a powerful testament to a new hard rock generation. THE RETALIATORS ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK boasts music from 23x-platinum MÖTLEY CRÜE, four-times platinum PAPA ROACH, triple-platinum rockers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, platinum group HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD, 3x GRAMMY nominated rock act NOTHING MORE, 4x Gold Single holders ASKING ALEXANDRIA, and up-and-coming charting acts ICE NINE KILLSTHE HUBAD WOLVESESCAPE THE FATECORY MARKS, EVA UNDER FIRE, CLASSLESS ACT and more. “This reminds me of a return to form, where you would meld aggressive rock and metal soundtrack with an edgy picture,” says ICE NINE KILLS frontman Spencer Charnas who appears in THE RETALIATORS as “Max.” He elaborates on his edgy experience filming stating: “It’s the only time I’ve ever had a gun in my mouth, which was pretty exciting. It was also the perfect first time to meet Five Finger Death Punch. What better way to get to know someone than have them stick a gun in your face?”PAPA ROACH vocalist JACOBY SHADDIX shared how their single “The Ending” made it on the soundtrack: “‘The Ending’ is one of those songs that when we first wrote it we knew it was special, there is something about those dark 80’s synths that lend themselves so well to horror. When we got the call that ‘The Retaliators’ wanted to use it in the soundtrack, we said yes as it absolutely fits, then we made a new ‘Retaliators’-themed music video for ‘The Ending’. When great music is tied to film it adds this extra layer of excitement for me, like ‘Lost Boys’ and ‘The Crow.’”   THE RETALIATORS is based on the real-life story of an upstanding pastor who uncovers a dark and twisted underworld as he searches for answers surrounding his daughter’s brutal murder. The film’s main message asks viewers, “If you could have a minute alone with the person who killed your loved one…would you take it?”   CORY MARKSDebuts Fiery New Rock Anthem “Burn It Up”Featured On ‘The Retaliators Official Motion Picture Soundtrack’ Aligning with this week’s theatrical debut of the horror thriller ‘THE RETALIATORS’, CCMA-nominated Canadian country rocker CORY MARKS shares a rousing music video for his anthemic rock single “Burn It Up” which is featured on the soundtrack. The video was directed by ‘THE RETALIATORS’ producer and lead actor Michael Lombardi (FX’s ‘Rescue Me,’ HBO’s ‘The Deuce’) whom MARKS appears alongside with a featured role in the film.  Watch the “Burn It Up” video athttps://corymarks.ffm.to/burnitup “‘Burn It Up’ is an aggressive, energetic and positive rock anthem that is meant to push the listener to feel good,” says MARKS. “We know the past two years have been so challenging on many, so it’s meant to get us through that in a big way –there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. For me personally it’s fitting due to the fact I had so much lined up perfectly after two years, then COVID hit and kept me grounded for almost another two. Now that the world is moving again and I have new music with another huge US tour, it’s time to get out there and BURN IT UP. With its energetic aggressiveness, this song ties into the rollercoaster ride ‘The Retaliators’ movie brings you on!” Burn It Up” is the latest single from MARKS who recently surpassed over 100 million total streams following the release of his 2020 debut album WHO I AM via Better Noise Music
