Goth-pop duo, THE HAXANS - Ash Costello (New Years Day) and Matt Montgomery (Rob Zombie) - have today announced their "Halloween Haunt Spooktacular!", a 3-day livestream extravaganza from their residency at legendary SoCal Halloween locale Knott's Scary Farm. The livestream starts today and ends on Halloween (Sunday, October 31). Click here to purchase "Halloween Haunt Spooktacular!" livestream tickets at the Party Monster Store. Tickets for Knott's Scary Farm are available here.
Speaking on the livestream, Matt Montgomery commented:
"When we were putting the show together, we curated 4 special sets of “Fall music for Fall people”. Though we’re very much a band scented with pumpkin spice, some of our original songs transcend the seasons and have become a way of carrying little pieces of Halloween around with you all year long. We knew we would be with our spooky people at these residency shows, but we’ve made so many new fans that were there just to celebrate the season.
This live set consists of mostly originals, with a few defining covers. When Ash and I first got together we shared some of our favorite songs with each other, and that kind of mapped out our DNA. Being a spooky kid from Texas, I love Roky Erickson more than most people. So we do two of his songs here. Ash also told me her favorite Alice Cooper song was “Keepin’ Halloween Alive” which she had no idea I co-wrote with Alice. That song makes for a great set opener!
We built the Party Monster Club to bring our fans exclusive content like this show and to be a place to roll around in the vibe of the band. We build games around the esthetic and lore of The Haxans that are fun little ways of celebrating who we are as a spooky community. "
Ash Costello also shared:
“It's been a pleasure being able to perform at such an iconic Halloween event like Knott's Scary Farm this October. So much so that want to share this moment with our fans all around the world who couldn’t be here to enjoy the show in person and we can’t wait to let you guys in on all of the fun!”
THE HAXANS residency features as part of the Carnival De Grotesque on The Calico Mine stage with four 30 minute sets at 8pm, 9pm, 10pm, and 11pm. Fans who wish to enjoy the band's residency in-person at Knott's Scary Farm can revel in the spine-tingling party anthems of THE HAXANS on the following dates:
Friday, 29th | Saturday, 30th | Sunday, 31st |

ABOUT THE HAXANS
A Goth-pop duo, decked out in creep kitsch high fashion, and named after a silent film from the twenties about a 15th-century German guide to hunting witches, THE HAXANS sound exactly like everything those images conjure. It’s the psycho-saccharine music of a fiendish creep’s fever dream… Classic art-house cinema, b-movie horror, spooky decadence, vintage American myth, and black roses dripping with blood are all tossed in THE HAXANS cauldron.
THE HAXANS are Ashley Costello, subcultural style icon and leader of Warped Tour screamo stars New Years Day, and Matt Montgomery, better known by his alias Piggy D., bassist for over a decade with multiplatinum shock rocker Rob Zombie, guitarist with horror punks Wednesday 13, and sometimes visual and musical collaborator with rock icon Alice Cooper.
THE HAXANS isn’t a side project. It’s the irrepressible, irresistible, and inevitable exorcism of the party-centric Halloween costume shop kicking around inside the brains and bodies of the group’s two coconspirators.
Those who spell magic with a “k” and vampire with a “y,” who invoke ancient spirits in pursuit of a superstitiously serendipitous good time – all denizens of darkness will find sanctuary in the warm boudoir-like atmosphere of THE HAXANS, both on record and on the stage.
