Been dying for a RedHook sequel since their massive 2023? Roll up, roll up and come check out the delectable darkness of Scream 2, the brand new track from the alt-rock genre mutants out now.
A spiritual sequel to the band's 2020 monster track Cure 4 Psycho, Scream 2 snarls, hooks and showers with heavy razzle dazzle as vocalist Emmy Mack delivers another magnetic outing while also poignantly rallying anyone who has fallen victim to narcissistic abuse.
"Scream 2 is the next chapter in a painfully relatable horror story for anyone who has survived narcissistic abuse. It's about the aftermath of escaping the narcissist. Once you remove their power, they may continue trying to hurt you by whatever means remain available to them: vindictive mind games, smear campaigns, sending 'flying monkeys' to do their bidding, weaponising your trauma against you. This is a song about refusing to let them draw more blood. And, unlike the 'Scream' movie franchise, there will be no further sequels. This ends here." - Emmy Mack
If you were living under a rock in 2023, RedHook turned in a masterclass showing, including their #10 ARIA album charting debut full length Postcard From A Living Hell, supports with The Smashing Pumpkins and Jane's Addiction, overseas adventures and more. And there is definitely no rest for the insatiable group as the barrel into 2024 with this absolute scorcher of a tune - and there's definitely more where that came from it seems. Bring it.
Scream 2 is out now.
