You’ve seen Vincent D’Onofrio morph into a variety of roles, ranging from his turn nabbing bad guys as Detective Robert Goren on Law and Order: Criminal Intent to bumbling around as Leonard Lawrence in Full Metal Jacket. The actor’s next project is something of a passion project: a spoken-word punk album.

The AV Club debuted the first track from Slim Bone Head Volt, D’Onofrio’s spoken word punk record which he collaborated on with musician Dana Lyn. The album’s website describes their sound as, “Strings howl and percussion thumps while bells whistle and bass lines stalk, like a jazz band from hell recording in a smoke-filled zero gravity chamber.” Take a listen over at The AV Club, in a very beat-era track called “I’m A Hamster.”

Slim Bone Head Volt will be released on March 3 via Buddhabug Records.
