Lunatic Fringe takes their cues from the likes of Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson. The group’s Shock Rock image pairs very well with their Metal-edged Hard Rock sound, however there’s a more to them than just that. Lunatic Fringe is a multi-faceted act whose songs straddle a wide range of tempos. Their agile sound can quickly switch gears from high-octane horror Rock to a 1950’s surfer sound. Versatility paired with striking theatrical presentation is one of the band’s greatest strengths.
Lunatic Fringe’s “Freakshow” EP is out now. It’s the perfect collection of tracks to rock out to while carving a jack-o-lantern or working an ouiji board. Score a copy of the disc at lunaticfringeband.com.
