We've already shown our excitement for Blitzen Trapper's forthcoming new album, Furr, and now the word is that the local band was handpicked to appear on the soundtrack to Choke. They'll contribute an unreleased song, "Wicked," joining such acts on the film's soundtrack as Fiery Furnaces, Death Cab, plus their is a Doors cover (ugh) and a "rare" version of the Buzzcocks' "Orgasm Addict" (as sung by their original vocalist Howard Devoto) as well.

Based on the Chuck Palahniuk book, the film (view the NSFW trailer here) will hit theaters September 26th, while the soundtrack hits store shelves three days earlier. Actor, director and screen writer (OMG! Triple threat!) Clark Gregg talks about Blitzen Trapper in the soundtrack's press release:

We listened to a lot of Blitzen Trapper during the crazed five-week summer shoot. It just seemed to fit with spending your 18-hour days in a sweltering mental hospital. They've got some excellent chaos going on.

Excellent chaos indeed.
