BEWARE OF BLAST releases new Surf Rock Halloween single SPECIAL FORCES

After a one year break, the Surf Rock band BEWARE OF BLAST release their new Halloween single SPECIAL FORCES. The song is an instrumental track inspired by the surf music of the 60s and the film music of American action series of the 70s.

SPECIAL FORCES is structured like a short story and is about a hired murder of a woman. The killer escapes in his car and is chased by the police through the night. At the end of a fast car chase there is a massive collision with a police car.

"We look forward to Halloween every year, especially to all the new spooky songs. With SPECIAL FORCES we have now released our third Halloween single in three years", says Jimi Roll of BEWARE OF BLAST.

The new single is available worldwide on all major music platforms like Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, Napster und Tidal.

Spooky Maine surf band releases debut EP!

Horror surf rockers Shriek if You Know What I Did Last Friday the 13th released their four-song EP "Beached Wail" earlier this month which features three original retro instrumentals and a Ventures cover. The EP fits in the tradition of other classic Maine surf (from the likes of 13 Ghosts, Thee Icepicks, and Beach Creature), and their brand of macabre reverb is made specifically for your listening pleasure at your annual Halloween party this year.

New Halloween Single - Say Goodnight - The Me Gustas

Happy release day!

October is here and so is our first holiday release! Say Goodnight, our ode to Halloween, is now available on our very own Bandcamp page:

https://themegustas.bandcamp.com/album/say-goodnight

This is the single you need to kick off your spooky season in style. This was a fun project and we got to do some things we don't normally do, using different guitars, pedals and other instrumentation to capture the sound we wanted.

"Black Cat Crawl" is inspired by old Stray Cats tunes and "The Bell Witch" is our nod to Rob Zombie!! Yeah, we pull ideas from every where and hopefully we convey it through our tunes.

Anyway, enough blabbering on my part, now go listen to our latest creation, share it and we would love for you to buy it and add it to your collection! Thank you again for the support and encouragement. Be good all you fiends and ghouls, reverb, set, Say Goodnight!
