“oozevoodoo is about cleansing and rebirth,” claims Scare frontman Kiss Reid. “It represents the rebirth of this band’s hunger.” If you want to use the usual rock journo cliché, it’s the follow-up to 2007’s Chivalry. But in real terms, ‘oozevoodoo’ is so much more. The album which spawned the unofficial, tongue in cheek, anthem of 2009 “NO MONEY” is set to be released on August 7th via EMI records.
‘oozevoodoo’ which also marks the production debut of Daniel Johns is not a band carbon copy of anyone else, nor a mere pastiche of The Scare’s influences. Featuring a heavier attack, simpler rhythms and more ambitious vocal melodies that circumvent the traditional, the lyrics to each song act like mini scenes in a wider epic.
Having just come off the road with Wolf and Cub and set to tour the country once more with Children Collide, THE SCARE are out to show Australia once again what they think of the world.
Listen to the new track ‘Could Be Bad’.
