MUSIC NEWS: TWIZTID Release New Music Video for "Breakdown" + Announce Rock & Shock Performance and Panels w/ Horror Greats Sid Haig and Kane Hodder

Worldwide horrorcore phenoms TWIZTID put fans in a frenzy last week after unleashing a video teaser for their brand new music video for the track 'Breakdown'. Yesterday, the band revealed the new music video, viewable via their official YouTube here. The straightforward video features an up-close look at Mr. Madrox and Mr. Monoxide, in and out of make-up, breaking away from the band's typical macabre style. This is a video for fans of intense rap lyricism, as it puts a direct focus on the group's complex lyrical stylings instead of theatricality.


In addition to the release of their new music video, TWIZTID just announced their upcoming return to Rock & Shock in Worcester, MA at the Worcester Palladium on October 19th. After impressing fans with their Fright Fest in 2013, Jamie Madrox and Monoxide Child are returning to the convention with special guests and fun surprises that are sure to thrill fans both old and new.


On Sunday, October 19, TWIZTID will participate in a panel dedicated to their latest music video, "Sick Man," a collaboration with Blaze Ya Dead Homie. The video features horror legends Sid Haid, best known for his portrayal of Captain Spaulding in Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects and Kane Hodder who portrayed the iconic Jason Voorhees in four Friday the 13th films, as well as Victor Crowley in Adam Green's Hatchet 1-3. TWIZTID, Blaze, Haig and Hodder will be answering fan questions live and in-person as part of the Rock & Shock panel series. They will also be signing autographs in their specially designed crypt. VIP ticket holders will be given first access to the crypt as well as an autographed poster from all of the panel guests.


Later that evening, TWIZTID is set to take to the stage for a live performance unlike any other. Joined by special guests like Kung Fu Vampire, Neurotic November, PWD and many more, the show is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience. To add to the fun, TWIZTID will be hosting a special after-party featuring Blaze Ya Dead Homie. GET YOUR TICKETS QUICKLY - This intimate performance will be limited to the first 500 ticket buyers and will be held in the Palladium's upstairs room. Tickets for the after party are just $15 in advance and $20 day of and do not include access to the TWIZTID show, nor do after-party tickets include entrance to the TWIZTID show. Tickets for both performances are available through, FYE stores and the Palladium box office.


TWIZTID will drop their full-length follow up to 2013's A New Nightmare EP, entitled The Darkness, this winter. The Darkness will feature select tracks from last year's limited edition/exclusive Get Twiztid EP, as well as several brand new, never-before-heard tracks. The new album will be released by TWIZTID's new record label, Majik Ninja Entertainment.
