Four Haunted Hits Limited Edition 45 RPMs (some on colored vinyl) available now from Necro-Tone Records

The good folks over at Necro-Tone Records have just printed a very limited run of Four Haunted Hits, The Sinisters' first record. You'll get four original tracks (Introduction to Terror, Zombie Waltz, Sinister Ritual and Scorpion Bowl) written by our own Matt O'Ghoul, recorded in the wreckage of the Van Buren Kon Tiki motel our secret studio headquarters.
We have no idea how many of these are available, and to order one you'll need to contact Necro-Tone through their Facebook page and make some kind of shifty under-the-table arrangement. Interesting trades considered. Probably. Maybe not.
UPDATE: Now available at Double Crown Records website!

While you're nosing around over there, be sure to check out some of the other cool and spooky bands in Necro-Tone's house of wax.

SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT: Sat. 10-26-2013, Monster's Ball Event @ Alwun House with The Mod Zombies

Our next show will be at Monster's Ball 2013... the Halloweeen-themed arts and music festival held annually at the historic Alwun House.
We'll be joined on stage by The Mod Zombies, but there's also DJs, dancing, costumes, a gallery, food, and a cash bar (don't forget to hit the ATM).

Note, this is a popular and ticketed event, and you'll save a few bucks if you order in advance instead of just paying at the door. Either way, don't miss it.

Monster's Ball 2013, Saturday Oct. 26th at Alwun House, 1204 E. Roosevelt St., Phoenix, AZ.
Show starts at 8:00PM.

Chop'n'Wok show: post-mortem

Thanks to everyone that came out to Chop'N'Wok last night for their spooky Friday the 13th party. The Rebel Set tore the place up with an awesome (too short!) set.

Oh yea, we played too.

Here's a few pics for those that missed it.

Bomb Squad Show: Post-Mortem

Thanks to everyone that made it out for the big Sail Inn show last night put on by the cool cats at Bomb Squad AZ CC... they really know how to throw a party. The Earps, Whiskey Kiss and The Venomous Pinks tore the place up.

Oh yea, we were there too...

And let me tell you, children of the night, the stage was misty that eve...

Below, proof that we've got a beat and you can dance to us! (pic on loan from local custom car culture photographer Garrettero. Check out his full coverage of the event here.)

The Sinisters will be performing Saturday, Feb. 9th, 2013 at The Sail Inn, 26 S. Farmer Ave., Tempe, AZ, along with The Earps, Whiskey Kiss and The Venomous Pinks as part of the Bomb Squad AZ Car Club's 3rd-Annual "Bomb"-BQ After-Party (pics from last year's event can be viewed here.)

(click to embiggen)

Show starts around 7:30 PM, and there should be plenty of classic hot-rods in the parking lot to gander at, so get there early. See ya there!

And oh yea... This show was originally going to be at the since closed Johnny's Eastside in Phoenix before being relocated to Tempe's Sail Inn, but not every event calender on the Web has updated their listing. Trust The Sinisters: Anyone still claiming this show is at Johnny's Eastside is high on goofballs.
