Portland punk band Teenage Mustache are back with the second single off of their upcoming album Bloodbath & Beyond, due out on June 5th 2020.
The single, Satan’s Mustache, is a tale as old as time. “It’s just a typical love story, boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, and girl introduces boy to modern satanism.” Says Vocalist King Rot, “Story starts out with how they met, how they fell in love and then how she introduces him to modern satanism. The bridge represents them attending a black mass and his conversion to satanism. Then things return to normal because satanism is normal.”
King Rot and his bandmates Punkrock Nate on drums, and Gert B. Frobe on the bass, have all played in a number of Portland Area bands starting when they were teenagers before forming Teenage Mustache. With their new album, “Bloodbath & Beyond”, things get dark…in a fun way.
“Bloodbath & Beyond was really inspired by three things coming together. I read the His Dark Materials Trilogy, saw the Satanic Temple documentary, and listened to the Twin Temple album a ton.”, says King Rot , “it inspired me to shape our album thematically around Satanism. I hope when people listen to the album they will realize Satanism can be fun too. While we are sincere in our satanic messages we try not to take anything super seriously”.
