After five and a half years of making music under the name Werewolves in Siberia, I’m taking a break. I’ve never done any single project for this long before. I’ve written and recorded more music as Werewolves in Siberia than any other band I was ever in… BY FAR.
There are plenty of contributing factors to this decision that I won’t bore any of you with. It’s just time to step back, take a break and hope I come back to it at some point rejuvenated.
For now, I’ve released Siamese Zombie for download to the public, a set of 1” buttons and the Jeremy Wheeler werewolf shirt is back up for sale (only printed once a month at this point, so if you order, please don’t expect the shirt right away. You will get it though).
Thank you all for the support over the years. I always said this was a project I was doing for myself but the fact that so many of you ended up liking this weird music I made is amazing.
Inspired by the Friday the 13th franchise, Crystal Lake is the newest song from Werewolves in Siberia… and it’s “pay what you want” only on Bandcamp.https://werewolvesinsiberia.bandcamp.com/track/crystal-lake
Welcome to Crystal Lake. Head in for a swim, maybe take a hike in the woods. Just make sure to watch your step. You might run into an old inhabitant of these grounds. Some say he was a myth. Some say he was killed. Some say he still lurks around here… Stalking… waiting…
Sorry for the lack of updates. Been busy with a lot lately. The Good news is that this Friday the 13th a new WIS album hits. Entitled The Thing That Goes Bump in the Night, it’s sort of a John Carpenter helps Charles Bernstein make the A Nightmare on Elm Street soundtrack vibe. A couple reviews have hit if you’re interested in reading what some have to say about it.

Of course, October wouldn’t be complete without the WIS regulars. The Horror Soundtrack Mixtapes are back. The Myers and Munster Halloween Bash (Carpenter’s Halloween Theme and The Munsters Theme covers) is back. Lastly, Misfits in Siberia (A Synth Tribute to The Misfits) is back with new addition “Night of the Living Dead” in honor of George A Romero’s passing. As per usual, they’re all completely FREE to download (werewolvesinsiberia.bandcamp.com) so take them and add them to your Halloween playlists.
As a last little bit of info, WIS is on heavy rotation at SCRMRadio.com, an all-horror/sci-fi streaming radio station with tons of content (shows, radio dramas, music, etc.). Give them a listen. A new song was written for 5d-blog.com‘s new YouTube interviews page. Check out the videos to hear “Fifth Dimension”. There’s also a brand new theme for The Monster Guys podcast entitled “Can’t Kill the Beast”. This one is a super-pumped 90’s industrial throwback kind of song. You can hear it on their latest episode.
That’s as much as I can throw at you leading up to the big release on Friday. See you then!
As per usual, a few items have popped up on the bandcamp page for free download for the month of October. The Myers and Munsters Halloween Bash EP is back (featuring the covers of John Carpenter’s Halloween Theme and Jack Marshall’s The Munsters Theme). The collection of Misfits covers are back and so are the DJ-style mixtapes of soundtrack songs. This time around, there are a few additions.
Misfits in Siberia (new title) now features Skulls (as heard first on the 6 Foot Plus podcast). The new goal is to cover a new Misfits song each Halloween to add to this collection.
The Horror Soundtrack Mixtapes also has a new addition. Monsters, Murderers, Haunts and Creeps is the Halloween ’16 mixtape that features more fun stuff than usual but fun stuff with a darker twist. It was originally taken down dude to some weird glitches that showed up with the mixafter upload but those seem to be worked out and it’s back up.
Have a great Halloween!
For good measure, if you’re wondering what bands you should be listening to for Halloween, I did a guest piece on that subject for the Little Miss Trainwreck blog you can check out here.
After over a year of shopping around and looking for the right fit, Dave Scheidt and Aaron Pittman’s SLICE comic is finally being released THIS MONDAY, (6/30). The comic follows Jon, a young pizza delivery driver on his first night on the job, and his encounter with the local killer. Stela is releasing the comic through their brand new app. The app is free to download and acts like Netflix for comics. You pay a small monthly fee and get to read all the killer indie comics they release. Before you write it off and say you’re not paying for that, you get the FIRST CHAPTER OF EVERY COMIC FREE to check it out when you download the app. Each week, a new chapter is released.
This is where WIS comes in. I made the soundtrack for this comic. The first two tracks will be available to stream this Monday via the bandcamp page for readers to listen while they read the first chapter. Each week, a new song will be released when they release the next chapter. The full soundtrack will, then, be released for download on July 4, when the last chapter is released.
Read Dave Scheidt’s interview with SKTCHD discussing the comic here.
October is here and in the spirit of halloween, a two-part Halloween mixtape is up for FREE DOWNLOAD. Have fun with it.
