Slowcoaches cover The Misfits’ ‘Skulls’ for Halloween – Listen Now

Slowcoaches just released a new single ‘Complex’, but never ones to rest easy, they are back with something special for Halloween. They’ve covered The Misfits Skulls in typically raucous fashion. As vocalist/bassist Heather says, “I thought in some ways it might seem a bit hypocritical to be covering The Misfits. They’re a band I grew up with and, in a lot of ways, they define the kind of bands that inspired me in my youth – brutal lyrics and an appearance and attitude that’s really hyper-masculine. It was kinda weird to sing something so gruesome and shocking. But I’ve yelled those lyrics many a time with a smile on my face. I guess The Misfits, like a lot of bands, raise the question of where a ‘performance’ begins and ends. And if you’re ever going to delight in the macabre then well then that’s what Halloween is for.”

No doubt Slowcoaches will be celebrating Halloween all week as their headline tour of the UK continues, culminating at London’s Boston Music Room on Thursday before it rolls on over to Germany.
