THE PRESS RELEASE: “Satana Tarantula is the brand new album from cult psychobilly band The Brains, formed by current Nekromantix skinman and jack-of-all-trades producer/guitarist/singer Rene D La Muerte!

Includes special guest appearances by psychobilly-punk goddess Patricia Day (Horrorpops) rockabilly guitar legend Danny B. Harvey (The Head Cat, Swing Cats) Tim Öhrström (Avatar) and more!”
MY TWO CENTS: Has it been too long since your last psychobilly freakout? Fear not; veteran Montreal trio The Brains will get your bones jumping and jiving with their eighth fearsome, full-throated full-length. Naturally, it features all the turbocharged bounce, speed-demon twang, chiller-thriller vibes and horror-ffuelled lyrics required by voodoobilly law. Unnaturally, it also includes an adrenalized cover of Eddie Grant’s Electric Avenue. Talk about scary, kids.
