You may remember NeW bEAT FUNd from the SiriusXM Alt Nation hit “Scare Me” (or maybe my hilarious interview with them when they were on Warped). Now you may come to know them as the band that love Halloween so much, they’ve decided to roll out fourteen Instagram video parodies with scenes of the most “revered horror movies of all time,” which began on the 16th of October.
The band will step into an iconic role a day from such classic thrillers as: Carrie (1976), Child’s Play (1988), Cujo (1983), Frankenstein (1931), Friday the 13th(1980), Night of the Living Dead (1968), Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), Psycho (1960), The Birds (1963), The Blair Witch Project (1999), The Fly (1958), The Grudge (2004), The Ring (2002) and The Shining (1980). NbF will roll out these hilarious 15 second clips, one a day, leading up to Oct. 29, when all the videos will be combined into an alternate full-length video for the track. Meanwhile, the official video for “Scare Me” from their “($) CoiNz” EP, was recently added to MtvU.
Check out the first video!
Right now, the band is on the road with 3OH!3, The Summer Set, and Wallpaper. on the Journeys Noise Tour, which kicked off yesterday at Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park, NY and will hit 32 cities before concluding in Los Angeles on Nov. 26. All four bands collaborated on a new track titled, “Turn the Night On,” which exclusively premiered yesterday on AltPress.com.
Prior to this, NbF just wrapped a run supporting blink-182, as well as being featured on several highly-acclaimed festivals (Riot Fest in Chicago and Denver; the KJEE Summer Round Up in Santa Barbara, CA; and the Epicenter Festival in Irvine, CA).
In June, NeW bEAt FUNd re-released its “($) CoiNz” EP. Fans can get a track for free at newbeatfund.com.
