The Traveling Vampire Show


July 2008
Abstract Sounds


"Please allow me to introduce these horror punk heartthrobs from the dusty graveyards of Arizona. This is a band of three brothers (actual brothers, actual last name CALABRESE) with a wicked MISFITS-meets-RAMONES-meets-DAMNED sound that is tight, hard and fiercely melodic. Songs like "Resurrection," "Eyes Down," "Shrunken Head Kids" and "Crizila" are liberally spiced with nasty hooks you can sink your fangs into along with all the requisite, whoa-whoa-oooh, chorus vocals that your black leather heart could ever desire. More often than not I've heard this "horror" genre done really poorly, but this can serve as the benchmark of how to get it right. This is as good as it gets, you can file this next to WALK AMONG US". - JEFF DAHL

Formed in 2003 the brothers CALABRESE have come a long way in four short years. "We are a very lucky band, our fans our amazing and I think selling our Souls is paying off because people just want to help the band progress." -Jimmy Calabrese. Fueled by the cult success of "13 HALLOWEENS", CALABRESE has recorded a follow up CD "THE TRAVELING VAMPIRE SHOW". The January 2007 release promises to deliver the horror with new 12 songs of ghoulish delight. "THE TRAVELING VAMPIRE SHOW" shows the development that CALABRESE has achieved. Only one listen will demonstrate the tighter performances, the more devolved songwriting and the more powerful mind controlling frequencies. Even though CALABRESE has been compared to the MISFITS, RAMONES and early AFI, "THE TRAVELING VAMPIRE SHOW" is distinctly CALABRESE. "Brothers Bobby, Jimmy and Davey have not only been gifted with a last name that doubles as a great band name...which, much like 13 HALLOWEENS, is destined for cult status." - Gothic Beauty Magazine.

CALABRESE appeals to those who feel confused by the current state of popular music. With distribution in the U.S., Japan and to the world through the Internet, CALABRESE are quickly converting an international audience. With consistent touring and song writing, CALABRESE are building a vortex of energy forcing their way into the nightmares of helpless fans! "I think CALABRESE is one of the top Horror Rock bands I have heard." - BLASKO, bassist for ROB ZOMBIE and OZZY OSBOURNE.
