The Haxans are continuing to release singles from their debut album “Party Monsters,” out October 13th and available for preorder here. Watch the video for the newest one, “Dirty Magic,” below:
Dan: I’m usually bad at being concise, but the word I’d use to describe our music is sincere. One of the most rewarding aspects of making music is being able to connect with people, and that’ll never happen if we write songs without putting thought into it and making sure they represent us well. To me, doing that would be disrespectful. Our listeners aren’t stupid, and if they’re taking time out of their days to give us a chance, then why wouldn’t they deserve our best effort?
Your latest single “Never About The Money” was recently released, and was recorded with all the band members in different places. What was that process like?
You’re planning on releasing an EP some time in the next few months. How’s that going?
The book is set to be released November 30th, and is available for preorder here. The story will continue to follow the character of James Scythe, who was introduced in Creeper’s music as a detective, who went missing over the course of their debut album “Eternity, In Your Arms.”
Read the summary of “The Last Days Of James Scythe” below:
“What you are about to read is confidential. One of the Ombudsman of the Preternatural’s former Special Agents went missing in 2015 and it’s time to answer the question that the authorities have ignored: what happened to James Scythe? Many have tried to follow the unnatural and unsettling story of Southampton’s prolific mystery but no one has been granted full access to the official James Scythe case files to piece together exactly what happened to him in his last days.
Lilly will be back with her findings shortly. We trust you will keep this between us.”
The EP is set to be released December 8th, and will be the duo’s third EP of the year. “Love Stories” is available for preorder here, and features the band’s most recent single “California Winter.”
Vocalist Anna Acosta had this to say on the band’s new music:
“Our hope as a band is that we can continue to grow and to challenge ourselves and each other to be better than we were when we met – and to reach people beyond ourselves at the same time. Once we put the songs out there, they stop belonging to us. Our hope is that people can get whatever it is they need from each song when they listen to it – whatever that might be. If you can make a difference for even one person, then all the struggles were worth it.”

The band had this to say on the new single:
“I think we can all relate to a song about needing to be on your own to find yourself. This song is a metaphor for all of the hard work that we’ve done and the things that we had to leave behind going into adulthood. We want people to be hit with the same feelings and thoughts that we were experiencing when we wrote the song.”
