GHOST TOUR EP

Great for Halloween parties, plays and trick-or-treaters!


HINTS

Myke Pelly out of Haunted Horses' makes a smooth detour into noise-punk with fast drumming and mechanical samples looped through a Line6-DL4. HINTS streaks the percussive detritus with eerie, twisted bursts of treated sound that will haunt your dreams just in time for Halloween.

REVIEWS

"So what happens when very creative post punk musicians decide to celebrate Halloween in their own way? The outcome is the the new EP by HINTS. They have created a spooky and groovy post punk experience for us all to groove!"

Sean Reveron (CVLT Nation)

“Haunted Horses drummer Myke Pelly's HINTS side project returns to soundtrack your gd Halloween experience. Mercifully, it eschews typical H'ween hokiness for genuine terror and suspense—as you would expect from a member of one of Seattle's darkest post-punk bands—and practically out-Goblins Goblin. "Halloween" is gore-soaked rock of ruthless brutishness that's oddly danceable. Wonderfully ludicrous and lethal work. Word to the wise: Stock up on Depend® Diapers before listening.”

REVIEWS

"HINTS' The Way to Function Packs a Scary, Post-Industrial Punch: Seattle drummer Myke Pelly has dismounted the great power-gloom-rock band Haunted Horses and gone solo with HINTS. His debut release under this handle retains the unrelenting darkness of his previous group and adds more industrial grime and grind and contains the sort of punishing drum work that would make Killing Joke’s Paul Ferguson or PiL’s Martin Atkins proud. The Way to Function clocks in at under 10 minutes, making its strident points with admirable concision and concussiveness. That it came out on Halloween is probably not coincidental. This shit is scary, but in a decidedly non-corny, post-industrial-wasteland way, thankfully. To paraphrase Steven Jesse Bernstein, more of this noise, please."
