SOILENT GREEN Records 'Squidbillies' Theme Song

New Orleans, Louisiana's sons of Southern grindcore SOILENT GREEN have recorded the opening theme song to "Squidbillies", an animated television series about a family of anthropomorphic hillbilly squids — the Cuyler family — that lives in indigence in the Appalachian region of North Georgia's mountains. The show's fourth season kicked off on May 17 on Adult Swim.

Vocalist Ben Falgoust comments: "'Squidbillies' is the best cartoon…excuse me…show on TV/Internet/cable around! I felt that way before we did the theme tracks, and I feel even stronger about it since I've seen the new episodes, despite our involvement with the program, of course.

"It was an awesome and strange experience to track these theme songs for the 'Squidbillies'. It was pretty shocking when were contacted by them to be involved with this project. I give credit to the rest of the guys in the band for pulling it off from a strange but fun perspective in incorporating SOILENT GREEN's style into the theme song for the show."

New episodes of "Squidbillies" air Sunday nights at midnight.

SOILENT GREEN's latest album, "Inevitable Collapse in the Presence of Conviction", was released in April 2008 via Metal Blade Records. The CD was helmed by Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, ex-MORBID ANGEL) at Mana Recording in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Touted as "one of the ten most important hard and heavy bands" by Rolling Stone magazine, SOILENT GREEN has been releasing consistently brutal and groove-laden albums since its first full-length, "Pussysoul", in 1994.
