Speaking on their new track and music video, guitarist and vocalist, Matt Montgomery shares
"We picked our covers for our Knott's this year from Halloween playlists we've created over the years. One song that has been a staple ever since I could make playlists, was this Bowie song. The original version has such a unique vibe, that it really took some years to figure out how to bring our own thing to it. It's surely a fun one for me to sing on a little more than I do most of our other tunes. It's certainly become a song that defines us and our audience and gets a party started!"
More news about new music from THE HAXANS will be coming soon.
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 aliases Piggy D. and Count 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.
