“Since last October, I’ve had the honor of creating music for the new Under the Banner of Heaven series with Josh Klinghoffer and Josh Evans, including some incredible trio days with John Wicks. Jon Krakauer’s book and Lance Black’s personal vision and leadership made this one of the most gratifying projects I’ve ever worked on. Truly epic. Thank you. Thank you.” Jeff Ament wrote on his Instagram.
Under The Banner Of Heaven, now available on Hulu, is a new TV series created by Dustin Lance Black and based on the novel Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith by Jon Krakauer, the author of Into The Wild.
“Had an absolute blast doing the music for this series. Jeff Ament and Josh Klinghoffer have zero ego and are willing to try anything with no judgement or preciousness. Huge thanks to engineer (and musician) Josh Evans for his huge contribution and making us sound good! This story is dark and it was really fun to be in that atmosphere for a while. Check it out when you can.” John Wicks wrote on his Instagram.
At the moment there is no digital or physical release of the score (almost 300 minutes of music across the seven episodes!) but you can watch Under The Banner Of Heaven trailer below.
