Fans and new listeners are sure to be playing all throughout the spooky season.
Designer Disguise have previously released a viral cover, their rendition of "Get Low" has accumulated nearly 2 million streams stemming from TikTok viral videos and user generated content. Proving that the band and their unique spin is built to last. As they continue to build and activate their ultra rabid fanbase at a feverish pace, they are constantly begging for hints and clues as to what song the band will reinvent next!
"Horror, fall, Halloween, and metal. We love all of these things and these things are inextricably linked. We decided we had to do a little metal version of Spooky Scary Skeletons to bring it all together. As huge horror and spooky season fans we felt adding some screams to this Halloween classic would give it some new life…. Or death. We had a ton of fun putting this version together, really leaning into our theatrical and death metal sides." Says lead vocalist, Jackson Bengtsson.
This single is the fourth release since the band's covers of "Clarity," "Sexy And I Know It" and "Move Bitch" which follows behind the band's LP, Elswaer. The record threads together 10 tracks that mold a spacious story. The record introduces itself in a massive way, with bold soundscapes that deliver a cosmic environment. Designer Disguise highlights their capability to create unique music while keeping a sense of familiarity alive.
"This album is the story about finding hope when there feels like there is none. It is a classic hero’s journey in which our main character Kai is swept away from his planet Elswaer and taken on an adventure. He joins The Nova Children on their quest to find The Flame and defeat the evil New Order. This album inspects how it feels to fight for good and light when all feels it is in darkness." Says The band regarding the new record. "The songs are an introspection into the universe we’ve created, but even more so it is an illustration of our feelings living in our own dark world. In many ways this album is in response to the government, covid, and many other tumultuous world events. This is how we coped during this difficult time. We decided to tell a story. Welcome to Elswaer.’"
