Early in 2014, an innocent world slept in peaceful slumber, blissfully unaware of the horror-movie-crazed band of punk rock misfits that would soon crawl from the deep, dark alleys of St. Louis, Missouri. There was no warning of what was to come – the debut HORROR SECTION 7” tore across the global pop punk scene like a zombie apocalypse. The record reached the #2 spot on the Interpunk top 100 sellers list – only kept out of the number one sales position by Green Day.
Creep forward to present day, and Horror Section has returned with a new set of classic punk tunes. Keeping with the theme of their debut record, the songs play like the punk rock soundtrack to a drive-in slasher flick - a toxic sonic blend of the Ramones and Freddie Krueger. And this time, they brought friends along. EATEN BACK TO LIFE, veteran fiends of the St. Louis punk scene, offer up similar classic punk style, but with a rougher, edgier vocal style reminiscent of Ryan Young (Off With Their Heads) and Patrick Costello (Dillinger Four).
On “Split In Two,” each band delivers 5 expertly executed punk rock homages to their favorite 80s horror flicks. From Reanimator to Phantasm, Horror Section and Eaten Back to Life breath new life into the movie maniacs we all believed long dead.
Released on Eccentric Pop Records, on limited edition toxic green color vinyl. Comes with an incredible 11-piece trading card set, with each card featuring custom, full-color artwork based on a song from the record, with the lyrics printed on the back!
