Rock quintet INTECHNICOLOUR have released a video for the new single ‘Big Sleeper’, the title-track from their debut album which is due for release on 21st February 2020 via Big Scary Monsters.

Guitarist Dave Jackson comments on the single:

“This song used to be called ‘Sexy Boys’ but we changed it to ‘Big Sleeper’ in a vein attempt to increase our chances of getting on Top Of The Pops…then we realised the programme had been cancelled and regretted our decision terribly!”

INTECHNICOLOUR will play a series of headline shows in February, March and April in support of the new album, joined by CLT DRP and Operation Kino on select dates.

19.02.2020 – Glasgow, Broadcast (w/ CLT DRP)
20.02.2020 – Bristol, The Exchange (w/ CLT DRP)
21.02.2020 – London, The Black Heart (w/ CLT DRP)
22.02.2020 – Southampton, Heartbreaker’s (w/ CLT DRP)

Hailing from Brighton, INTECHNICOLOUR are a riffy, groovy, rock band with a knack for creating a colourful song or two. Formed in 2015 through a want to play loud music through slightly broken amps, the basis of the band was created.

Comprised of members from the likes of Delta Sleep, LUO and Broker the five-piece are a fully-formed band of technically gifted musicians, cutting loose and playing music that’s about as far removed from their day jobs as it’s possible to get – and they are doing it better than a good portion of their contemporaries. Landing somewhere between the slack desert-groove of Kyuss and Karma to Burn, the band combine deeply satisfying riffs with a dynamic vocal style, which calls to mind the sounds of Baroness, Gojira and Mastodon.

The band have previously been quoted as saying that they “literally have nothing to say about themselves,” but with music this good, it’s highly likely that there’ll be plenty of others willing to do the talking for them.

INTECHNICOLOUR have previously toured across the UK and Europe with the likes of Physics House Band, Black Peaks, Town Portal, Bitch Falcon and Haggard Cat. The band concluded 2019 with a performance at Big Scary Monsters’ Xmas Party, with headline dates confirmed in support of the album.

Knock Knock Monster Pictures

After the first wave of announcements last week saw the release of the official Monster Fest 2015 poster, that SCARE CAMPAIGN would be the opening night film, plus the announcement that this year’s special guests will include the likes of Butch Patrick (The MUNSTERS), Fred Williamson (FROM DUSK TO DAWN) and Dee Wallace (E.T.), Monster Fest, Australia’s premier cult and horror film festival, is proud to announce the second stage of programming and ticket sales for Monster Fest 2015 – 26th to 29th of November at Australia’s newest home of cult cinema, The Lido Cinema in Hawthorn, Melbourne.

 

Over the coming weeks, the FULL PROGRAM ANNOUNCEMENT will include details of over 40 feature films – ‘Official Selection’ and retro gems, two short film programs – ‘Trasharama’ and ‘Monster Shorts’, more guests, bands, Monster Market, Munstapalooza horror hot rods, and more.

 

Meanwhile, here’s a fresh sack of treats for Monster Fest fans:

 

SCREENING OF AUSTRALIAN CULT CLASSICS: WOLF CREEK (10th ANNIVERSARY SCREENING) AND SMOKE ‘EM IF YOU GOT ‘EM

It’s been 10 years since Australian actor John Jarratt first morphed into the now legendary horror ‘baddie’ Mick Taylor and began menacing (and murdering) backpackers in the harsh Australian wilderness.

 

To celebrate Mick’s reign of bloody terror, MONSTER FEST is proud to announce that this year’s program will include a special 10th Anniversary Screening of director Greg McLean’s Aussie horror masterpiece, WOLF CREEK. Aside from John Jarratt (DJANGO UNCHAINED) WOLF CREEK also stars Cassandra Macgrath (SCARE CAMPAIGN), Kestie Morassi (TV’S SATISFACTION) and Nathan Phillips (THESE FINAL HOURS).

 

In 1988 Melbourne director Ray Boseley created one of the greatest cult movies ever produced in this country, SMOKE ‘EM IF YOU GOT ‘EM.  Released only on VHS back in the day, the film has built a dedicated fan base over the years, who have yearned to see it once again in all its big screen glory.

 

Cast and Crew from both films, including John Jarratt, Greg McLean, Ray Boseley and Clayton Jacobson will be attending and presenting Q&A sessions post screening.

 

A BREAKFAST SCREENING OF E.T WITH SPECIAL GUEST – DEE WALLACE

Remember that special feeling you felt when you first heard the adorable alien E.T. utter the words ‘ET phone home’ in Steven Spielberg’s 1982 Academy Award winning film E.T. THE EXTRA TERRESTRIAL?

Now fans (and newbies) of all ages can re-fall in love with E.T. as MONSTER FEST is proud to announce a special breakfast screening of E.T. THE EXTRA TERRISTRIAL during which fans will be able to meet actress Dee Wallace who plays Mary (the mother) in the family classic.

 

 

WORLD PREMIERE OF AUSTRALIAN FILMS – BULLETS FOR THE DEAD & CAT SICK BLUES

MONSTER FEST 2015 will see the World Premiere of a number of Australian films and we are proud to announce two of these today – BULLETS FOR THE DEAD and CAT SICK BLUES.

BULLETS FOR THE DEAD is directed by first time feature director Michael Du-Shane and tells the story of a hardened bounty hunter, a gang of outlaws in his trust and a preacher who are forced to work together and battle their way across the Wild West during the outbreak of a zombie apocalypse! The film stars Christopher Sommers (THE WATER DIVINER), Vanessa Moltzen (I AM EVANGELINE) , Hugh Parker (MY MISTRESS), Troy Mackinder (SANCTUM) and Emma Randall (DAYBREAKERS).

CAT SICK BLUES is an Aussie horror directed by another first timer, Melbourne filmmaker, Dave Jackson. CAT SICK BLUES tells the story of Ted Henson (Matthew C. Vaughan) whose beloved cat dies, triggering a total mental breakdown and prompting him to attempt to reanimate his feline friend – all he needs is nine human lives! This hilariously twisted and unique new film stars Shian Denovan (SAWNY: FLESH OF MAN) and Noah Moon (I’M YOU DICKHEAD).

 

CLOSING NIGHT FILM – KNOCK KNOCK

MONSTER FEST is proud to announce that the Official 2015 Closing Night Film will be director Eli Roth’s (HOSTEL, CABIN FEVER, THE GREEN INFERNO) latest film KNOCK KNOCK – a remake of the 1977 psychological thriller DEATH GAME. KNOCK KNOCK tells the twisted tale of a devoted husband and father who tries to do the right thing when 2 young women come knocking on his door looking for help. KNOCK KNOCK stars award-winning actor Keanu Reeves (THE MATRIX, SPEED, JOHN WICK), Lorenza Izzo (THE STRANGER, THE GREEN INFERNO) and Ana de Armas (OVERDRIVE, DAUGHTER OF GOD).

 

A Closing Night Awards Party, hosted by Melbourne’s ‘Queen of the Crypt’, Cherry Bites, follows the screening and will have festival goers rocking into the wee hours with a performance from much loved Melbourne rockers, ‘The Tarantino’s’!
