We started shooting for Punk Rock Holocaust 3 on the 2011 and 2012 Warped Tours, and now 6 years later we’re returning to finish the job! The results of the first round of shooting were extra bloody, murders included Against Me!, Pepper, New Year’s Day, The Exposed, Peelander Z, Larry and his Flask, Lucero, The Dance Party, Cold 43, Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds, The Expendables, Big D and the Kids Table, Lionize, Grieves, We The Kings, Cherri Bomb, Sick of Sarah and Justina among others! Thanks to all the bands and of course Kevin Lyman and the Warped Crew. Also thanks to Cold Steel Knives for supplying the Butterfly Swords for the Executioner!
We just shot with the band New Year’s Day while they were on tour in Reading, PA for their death scene for the movie. If you haven’t heard of this band you should definitely check them out! Every one of their songs is about some kind of murder or death and fits right in with the Punk Rock Holocaust series! We murdered lead singer Ashley Costello and guitarist Jake Jones and the rest of the band will meet their demise soon as well! Check out some pictures from the shoot below!
It’s been a whirlwind few months since we finished shooting on the Warped Tour. We’ve been doing tons of Halloween events with our NYC Zombie Crawl and have been lucky to have Angelo Moore working with us on some of those events! We also shot a music video for his Dr. MaddVibe project and even got to shoot with him and the rest of Fishbone for a scene for Punk Rock Holocaust 3 when the band played in Philly!
The movie is coming along great, we’ve got a lot edited but we also have a lot of shooting to do in the coming months. As always we set out to kill as many bands as possible, and that means shooting with them as they come through town on tour. We’ve also got a few more dialogue scenes to shoot and some more general insanity so that means there is still a chance for you to be in the movie! We’ll be posting upcoming shoots here on the site as they get set up. We’ll be shooting some scenes in the Los Angeles area in the next few months and then back on the East Coast when it starts getting warmer so stay tuned! Next up we’re shooting New Years Day’s death scene!
Also, part of the movie features Angelo’s talk show – The Angelo Show! We’re going to have some sneak preview interviews on the site in the coming weeks with Big D and the Kids Table and Lionize!
Until then, check out a preview shot from the new Dr. MaddVibe video ‘Optimistic Yes’ as well as some pictures from the Fishbone scene in Punk Rock Holocaust 3 below!
Until we bleed again…
