Top-notch horror rock trio Calabrese are ringing in the impending arrival of their new album Calabrese III – They Call Us Death. In the next few months, the band will unleash this hotly awaited follow-up to their critically acclaimed CD The Traveling Vampire Show (an excellent album which shares its title with the classic novel by the late, great Richard Laymon). They're taking preorders now... and you'll be signing in blood when you see the cool promotional stuff they're offering up with it. Get a bloody good taste below the fold!
Not only is the band offering the creeptastic first single Violet Hellfire on their official MySpace, but they're also throwing in a series of postcard-sized prints called 'Three Portraits of Evil' – depicting band members Jimmy, Bobby and Davey Calabrese as, respectively, a chainsaw-wielding killer, a toothy vamp-like demon and a hulking werewolf. The portraits will be signed by the brothers themselves and available only to pre-order customers through the band's online store.
They Call Us Death is tentatively slated for an early February release, but according to the band, that date may change due to the vast 'anti-rock conspiracy.' Hmm...
