Will Gould’s Salem announce new EP, unveil lead single DRACULADS

Watch the video for Salem’s new single DRACULADS, taken from the duo’s upcoming Salem II EP.

Will Gould’s Salem are following up last year’s excellent self-titled EP with another release: Salem II.

The Creeper frontman and friend/collaborator Matt Reynolds will be unveiling their new five-track EP on May 7, with brand-new single DRACULADS (what a title!) out today (April 12).

Will explains of the duo’s latest song: DRACULADS is the sound of two lovers kissing in a bar fight. It is an over-the-top love song literally about falling in love with a vampire.

The video is a period piece and tells the story of two punk rock kids dating in England, in 1985. It was filmed in one single day and shot at many historic musical landmarks in Manchester. For the two indoor scenes I built sets in my apartment, at one point transforming my own bedroom into the home of one of our characters. It is chaotic and romantic, destructive and dramatic just as the song it was shot for.”

Check it out below:

The Salem II EP tracklist is as follows:

1. William, It Was Really Something
2. DRACULADS
3. Keep The Thorns
4. Sweet Tooth
5. Heaven Help Me
