Stabbing Westward releases 'Hallowed Hymns' Halloween covers EP

COP International Records

Stabbing Westward has released a new, Halloween-themed covers EP titled Hallowed Hymns.

The four track collection includes two renditions of The Cure‘s “Burn,” one of which is dubbed the “Devil’s Night Mix,” as well as takes on “(Every Day Is) Halloween” by Ministry and Echo and the Bunnymen‘s “The Killing Moon.”

Earlier this year, Stabbing Westward announced plans to release a new album in 2020, their first in nearly two decades. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed the record to 2021.

“We were supposed to release our new album and tour the U.S. to support it. But clearly that’s not happening,” says frontman Christopher Hall. “We know Halloween is different this year with no parties and no trick or treating so we wanted to give fans something special…something that will help tie you over until we can release some new music.”
