THE CREEPY CRAWLERS unleash bloody horrors in ‘Mommy Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight?’ – a fun tribute to the Misfits

1 min read

The Creepy Crawlers are dialing up the terror with their latest music video for “Mommy Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight?” This bloodcurdling rendition, part of HorrorShock Records’ “We Bite: A 40th Anniversary Tribute to Earth A.D.,” is an electrifying resurrection of The Misfits’ classic.

Rev. Chad Wells, the enigmatic frontman, couldn’t hide his enthusiasm. “Being part of this tribute to Earth A.D. is an honor for us. The Misfits played a significant role in shaping our sound,” he remarked, adding a personal touch to the band’s connection with the iconic group.

But it’s not just about the music. Scarika Watson, co-lead vocalist of The Creepy Crawlers, delves into the creative depth of the video. “We wanted to capture the essence of the song—which is a tornado of hate, anger, fear, and murderous contempt. It’s not just a cover; it’s a reawakening,” she asserts, indicating a deeper, more sinister interpretation.

The video itself is a visual terror—a fast-edited, stroboscopic nightmare where Zodiac killer-esque characters don the band’s spider sigil, adding layers of chill to this dark homage. It’s not just a nod to the iconic Misfits aesthetic; it’s a full-blown reinvention with the band’s unmistakable horrorpunk flair.

Drummer Danny Grim, anchoring the chaos, speaks of his return to the stage with Rev. Chad Wells.

“Returning to the stage with The Creepy Crawlers is a thrilling experience,” he admits, recalling their days in The Jackalopes. His rhythmic prowess adds a new dimension to the band’s sound, infusing each beat with an intensity that’s hard to ignore.

“Gory” Cory Ryherd, the newest addition on guitar, makes his video debut in this release. “Joining The Creepy Crawlers and making my debut in this video is a dream come true,” he shares, reflecting on his journey from skateboarding to shredding guitar riffs.

For fans craving more, The Creepy Crawlers’ EP, “Full Moon Rituals,” delves deeper into their horrorpunk essence. Additionally, their live prowess can be witnessed in the “Live In Troy, Ohio” DVD.

The band isn’t stopping there; they’re gearing up to open for Cancerslug on February 22nd in Cincinnati, Ohio—a night that promises to be an unforgettable foray into the macabre.
