Wrvth Posts “Forlorn” In-Studio Video

Atmospheric tech death unit Wrvth today issues part two of a live, in-studio video series with “Forlorn,” which comes by way of the band’s self-titled full-length, issued last year by Unique Leader Records.

The black and white performance clip was captured at Fang Studios with Nick Loiacono of FLYTRAPtv. “We feel the songs on our record are best represented in a live context,” said the band in a collective statement. “‘Forlorn’ is especially one of those songs that a raw production lends to the song accordingly, lyrically, and musically.”

Wrvth is currently in the midst of a headlining tour that commenced on August 5th in Bend, Oregon. The journey includes an appearance at Jamfest in Beamsville, Ontario and will run through September 3rd in Sacramento, California.

Powerman 5000 Playing Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare 2014 Opening Night

Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare has announced additional onsite experiences for the ultimate Halloween horror event, this year held at WestWorld Of Scottsdale in Scottsdale, Arizona for select nights from September 19th – November 1st, 2014.

As in 2013, Great American Nightmare will feature a Rob Zombie museum area displaying memorabilia from the musician and filmmaker’s movie and music career. In addition, the galactic hard rockers in Powerman 5000 have been added to the September 19th opening night concert–already featuring headliner Rob Zombie.

Powerman 5000’s new electro-tinged album “Builders of the Future” (T-Boy Records/Ume) is available on iTunes, Amazon.com, and PledgeMusic.com and features the song “Invade Destroy Repeat,” currently receiving airplay on KUPD-FM in Phoenix.

Great American Nightmare is a fully immersive haunted house experience featuring three attractions based on Rob Zombie’s own horror films: The Lords Of Salem In Total Black Out, Captain Spaulding’s Clown School In 3D, and The Devil’s Rejects.

The shocking–and sometimes disturbing–attractions will offer a three-dimensional experience with animatronics and effects, a maze that is the ultimate definition of claustrophobia and fear, sudden chills and startling thrills, and salacious humor that will make patrons scream with fright and laughter.

The Great American Nightmare’s Bloody Boulevard will feature freak shows, musical entertainment, roaming characters, themed food and beverages, games and vendors each night.

Tickets for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare are on sale now at this location, with prices starting at only $25 for September 20th – November 1st. Each ticket includes access to all haunted house attractions and the Bloody Boulevard activities. Tickets for opening night (September 19th) include the Rob Zombie with Powerman 5000 concert and are available starting at $45.
