Los Angeles-based Goth Pop duo THE HAXANS are pleased to announce that they have unleashed their debut full-length, Party Monsters. The group, comprised of New Years Day vocalist Ash Costello and Rob Zombie bassist Matt Montgomery (better known as Piggy D), came together over three years ago and have taken their longstanding passion project from grotesque dream to a frightful reality with Party Monsters. Speaking about what fans can expect from the new record, the band states, "This isn't a Halloween record, it's just for Halloween people. We stuffed this jack-o-lantern full of pure, unfiltered Ash & Matt garage party noise."
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, like so many ingredients from a well-worn book of spells.
Naturally, the band's debut album arrives on Friday the 13th - October 13, 2017, to be exact. Party Monsters, issued by powerhouse alt-rock label Another Century Records, is the weaponized confection produced by two years of sporadic collaboration, pieced together with devilish care, assembled in a studio laboratory of sorts like Frankenstein's monster. Put on Party Monsters and get immersed in a cool hang with a couple of weirdos up way past their bedtimes, seductively nestled in an old house amidst the spider webs, busted keyboards, broken guitars, and an old projector running The Rocky Horror Picture Show, tempting listeners in.
"A lot can happen in three years of anyone's life. Listening to the record now I can hear it all. It's all oddly reflected here in this time capsule. There's little musical snapshots here of late night dance parties, sugar fueled life talks, and of course some raging party time! This is what happens when two random people become friends, start a band, and pour their candy corn hearts into a record." - Matt Montgomery
Party Monsters is available now via all digital music retailers/streaming platforms, as well as a limited edition 12" vinyl on the band's official online store.
