Growwler has a spine-chilling new single out just in time for Halloween. Titled “Dawn of the Red” and conceived as a tribute to “slasher cinema,” the thumping bass line certainly sounds like a heartbeat racing as an axe-wielding maniac closes in on the group of sex-crazed teenagers partying at the haunted summer camp.

The axe wielded in this tune is equally effective in quickening the pulse with its sharp, staccato rhythm, backed by a charging drumbeat and eerie backing vocals.

In addition to their love of horror flicks, the band also composed the tune for the Ninkasi Brewing Company‘s new compilation release of Northwest bands. You may not be into Friday the 13th, but you can probably appreciate the dedication to craft beer.

Three weeks are left of Growwler’s October residency at Amnesia. If you want to catch this song live, now would probably be a good time to go.
