SIXX: A.M./Ex-GUNS N' ROSES Guitarist DJ ASHBA Composes Theme Song For ELI ROTH's 'The Green Inferno'
September 8, 2015
In the short clip below, director Eli Roth and composer DJ Ashba (SIXX: A.M., ex-GUNS N' ROSES) introduce a first look at the music video for "Escape From The Green Inferno", from the official soundtrack for "The Green Inferno", in theaters September 25. The song was written by Ashba, while the music video — which features never-before-seen clips from the upcoming cannibal horror film — was directed by Roth.
From Roth, the horror mastermind behind such groundbreaking films as "Cabin Fever" and "Hostel" franchise, comes a terrifying new film about a group of college students who take their humanitarian protest to the Amazon jungle, only to be taken prisoner by the indigenous tribe they came to save. A twisted and blood-soaked take on a digital-age phenomenon, "The Green Inferno" tells the story of what happens when "slacktivism" — the well-meaning social-media response to global catastrophes — turns deadly deep in a South American rainforest. Trapped in a remote tribal village, these naïve, technology-dependent students suffer unspeakable acts as the victims of chilling and soul-destroying rituals reserved for only the most threatening intruders.
Ashba issued a statement on July 27 saying that he was leaving GUNS N' ROSES. His statement read in part, "It is with a very heavy heart and yet great pride that I announce that I've decided to close this chapter of my life and encapsulate the wonderful times that I've shared with GUNS N' ROSES into fond memories. I have reached a point in my life where I feel its time to dedicate myself to my band SIXX: A.M., my adoring wife and family, and to the many new adventures that the future holds for me."
Ashba added: "I want to take a moment to thank Axl from the bottom of my heart for not only the most incredible experience of my life, but for truly believing in me. You are a true friend and a champion of mine and I am forever grateful. And even as I move on to pursue other endeavors, I will always remain one of your biggest fans. I also would like to thank each and every one of you fans for your love and support throughout the years."
Ashba said earlier in his statement that working with GUNS N' ROSES was "the most incredible journey I could have possibly imagined."
Ashba joined GUNS N' ROSES in March 2009 following the departure of Robin Finck.
