Take a look below for a closer look at these releases along with more details.
To celebrate the return of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy), and director George Miller’s post-apocalyptic world of metal on metal carnage in Mad Max: Fury Road (in theaters May 15), Mondo is excited to unveil the original motion picture soundtrack in a gorgeously packaged vinyl album and two glorious screen prints.
The vinyl comes with two interchangeable covers with artwork by Boneface featuring Max and Fury Road’s big bad, Immortan Joe. Boneface also contributed a character-focused screen print, which nicely complements Killian Eng’s hellish landscape portrait, featuring an armada of menacing vehicles. The posters will go sale along with a pre-order for the vinyl at MondoTees.com on Friday, May 15.
“The artists had a lot of fun with this one. George Miller’s iconic production design in the Mad Max films has been injected with nitro for Fury Road. His visionary world offered a kaleidoscope of visually arresting characters, vehicles and landscapes for Boneface and Killian Eng to play in. We were honored for the chance to work on one of our most anticipated films of the summer,” said Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael.

Mad Max: Fury Road Original Score
Composer Junkie XL utilized the movie’s vast landscape to explore a diverse range of musical territory, from beating drums to sweeping strings and electric guitar-driven operatic themes, utilizing nearly 200 instruments. “The score includes almost everything in a composer’s arsenal. The instrumentation ranges from big, brutal percussion and an 80-voice choir, with string sections and musical sound design, and everything in between. I used anything I could get my hands on.”
Junkie XL (Tom Holkenborg) has built a reputation on musical experimentation. The Grammy-nominated multi-platinum selling producer and composer’s versatility puts him on the cutting edge of contemporary music, as well as at the vanguard of film composition.
