Legendary Danish-American psychobilly trio Nekromantix have revealed some hot news about their next studio album, the follow-up to 2007's Life is a Grave & I Dig It! The new project, titled What Happens in Hell, Stays in Hell, is set to drop later this summer, and we've got some devilish details about the record and the band's upcoming North American tour. Click below and get in the know!
Founded by Kim Nekroman – well known among psychobilly fans for his signature coffin-shaped standup bass – Nekromantix have been major players in the horror music genre for well over two decades, and they're the first psychobilly band to be nominated for a Grammy (for their 1994 album Brought Back to Life). Nekroman describes their sound as "Elvis meets the Wolfman," with an injection of punk attitude and monster movie lyrics, and that ghoulish groove has inspired many bands over the years.
What Happens In Hell features thirteen tracks with titles like "Bats In My Pants," "Sleepwalker With A Gun" (described by the band as an "ominous anthem") and "Bela Lugosi's Star," a loving tribute to the horror icon. The album is set for release on August 2nd, but ahead of that date the band will be kicking off their North American tour, beginning in California on July 26th. Venues are listed on the band's Facebook page, and presale tickets will be available to fans who subscribe to their mailing list.
