When we interviewed remaining Broadcast member James Cargill last year, he told us about his plans to continue recording after the passing of his bandmate, Trish Keenan. Today, Warp Records announced the results of that recording, The Berberian Sound Studio.

Featuring compositions by Keenan completed before her death, The Berberian Sound Studio is the soundtrack to a film of the same name. Ahead of its January 8 street date, you can read the Halloween-worthy synopsis and watch the trailer below.

“It’s 1976 and timid, Dorking-based sound engineer, Gilderoy, has been transplanted to Italy’s run-down Berberian Sound Studio to work on “The Equestrian Vortex”, the latest low-budget horror movie by notorious exploitation maestro Giancarlo Santini. Gilderoy’s task is a seemingly simple one: to create, record and mix the sounds of bloodcurdling screams, limbs being severed and the insertion of red hot pokers into human orifices, mostly using a variety of everyday household items such as old vegetables and a hammer.”
