Yep Roc Records to Release Halloween-Themed 'Mondo Zombie Boogaloo' Album Featuring Los Straitjackets
On October 1, Yep Roc Records will release Mondo Zombie Boogaloo, an album and tour celebrating Halloween, the most sinister day of them all.
The album is a collection of new music from the Fleshtones, Los Straitjackets and Southern Culture on the Skids. The set includes originals and standards from each band and promises to put listeners in a spooky mood for the Halloween season.
Tracks include “¡Ghostbusters!,” “Goo Goo Muck,” “Haunted Hipster” and a collaboration by the three bands on “Que Monstruos Son” (otherwise known as “The Monster Mash” en Español).
You can hear the Fleshtones’ version of “Ghoulman Confidential” — and see the album's entire track listing — below.
Mondo Zombie Boogaloo will be available on CD, digitally, and as a double LP on colored vinyl. The album’s cover features artwork by Steve Blickenstaff, known for his unforgettable work on the Cramps' 1984 album, Bad Music for Bad People.
Pre-sale orders for a limited number of tour bundles including T-shirts, posters, albums and tickets for each show will be available at mondozombieboogaloo.com.
