NEW YORK - March 3, 2022 - PRLog -- Ton-Up, Inc. will be releasing the first single from the live cast recording of Actor, Singer, Writer, and Director Philip Paul Kelly's Rock-n-Roll Wrestling Spectacle, "Rockquiem For A Wrestler."

Performed and recorded live by Philip Paul Kelly during the elevated staged reading at New York City's legendary Off-Broadway venue, The Triad Theater, the song "Savior" will arrive on streaming services on March 25, 2022.

Originally written, recorded, and performed by Eddie Star, the song is one of several titles licensed from Star's catalog included in the show.  "Eddie Star's music is Punk Rock.  I thought it would be a good compatible form of music to compliment the grittiness of the wrestling environment," Kelly commented in a short documentary about the show by NYU film student Shuyao Chen in 2019.

The story of a champion wrestler revisiting his past, transporting the audience simultaneously between the world of professional wrestling and being at a rock concert, featuring the music of Eddie Star (Eddie Star & The Zero Effect, JoyBox) and composer Paul Castrataro (Picture of Dorian Gray, Fags & Cellphones) captured the imagination of the viewing audience during the live stream in June of 2020.

The live cast recording, "Rockquiem For A Wrestler" (Released January 7, 2022), is currently only available on Compact Disc and will be released digitally later this year. The show is currently being adapted and developed for the screen.
