Having an Undead Summer is a brand new four song EP that is heavily flavored by surf music and the old beach movies. Production wise, it’s very similar to the last album. The Undead seem to have settled into a sound that’s somewhere between the early stuff by the Misfits (think Static Age) and vintage stuff by The Cramps (think Psychedelic Jungle). The music is influenced by both punk rock and early rock and roll, with a creepy horror punk vibe. It can be similar to some of the things that Jerry Only tried to pull off with the post Danzig Misfits (think Project 1950), but Steele is better at it. Having an Undead Summer will make you very happy if you like watching The Addams Family or The Munsters and enjoy listening to novelty Halloween songs like “Monster Mash” or “Purple People Eater”.
