Powerman 5000’s Spider One And Knee High Fox’s Krsy Fox Launch Scripted Horror Anthology Podcast “Bleeders DIEgest”

A new scripted horror anthology podcast, titled “Bleeders DIEgest,” has been launched through the Bloody Disgusting podcast network. The series was created by Powerman 5000’s Spider One, Knee High Fox’s Krsy Fox, and “The Boo Crew” podcast hosts Trevor and Lauren Shand. Each episode includes a new original dark fiction story and immersive audio production. Select stories will also feature special guests including: Bonnie Aarons (“The Nun”), Adam Busch (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), Ice Nine Kills’ Spencer Charnas and more. The first two episodes are available now with further episodes set to air every Thursday.

Spider One said the following:

“Ever since I was a little kid, I was transfixed by horror and science fiction. Endless hours of my youth were spent watching ‘Creature Double Feature’ and scouring the aisles of my local video store for the goriest of cover art. It’s a dream come true to be able to now partner with Bloody Disgusting and share my own brand of scary with an audience.”

Krsy Fox also commented:

“We’re so excited to share the darkest parts of our minds with an audience we know will truly appreciate it. Making terrifying original short stories into such a theatrical and interactive show has been a dream come true. The stories of ‘Bleeders DIEgest’ are already giving me nightmares, and I hope it does the same for all of you!”

Lauren Shand continued:

“There is something so magical about crafting characters and their worlds that don’t exist painted with words. Being able to do this in the horror space with Bloody Disgusting is so incredibly cool.”

Trevor Shand went on:

“The ‘theater of the mind’ is something I retreated to so often as a kid with old-school radio dramas and tales of horror that emanated from the small speaker I’d stash under my pillow at night. To be able to play in that world with the support of this small group of friends and our Bloody Disgusting family is a nightmare come true. Our goal is that these stories might live in yours.”

Bloody Disgusting co-founder Tom Owen added:

“We’re so excited to grow the Bloody Disgusting podcast network with the addition of ‘Bleeders DIEgest’. These stories are truly terrifying, and the intimate format of podcasting is the perfect platform to deliver them straight into the listener’s ear. I can’t wait for everyone to hear what Spider, Krsy, Trevor and Lauren have created.”

Powerman 5000 Stream Re-Recorded Version Of “When Worlds Collide”

Powerman 5000 are streaming a re-recorded version of their song “When Worlds Collide.” This version of the track was previously released as a bonus track on the CD edition of the band’s latest album “The Noble Rot.“ The original version is from their 1999 album “Tonight The Stars Revolt!.“ Spider One commented:

“Re-recording ‘When Worlds Collide‘ was like jumping into a time machine. We play that song live every night on tour but I hadn’t actually listened to the recorded version in a long time. So, when it came time to tackle the re-record, it was a weird process of trying to emulate myself. Which all these years later seemed like a stranger.”

Powerman 5000 Premiere “Strange People Doing Strange Things” Video

Powerman 5000 have premiered an animated video for their song “Strange People Doing Strange Things.“ This track is from the band’s latest album “The Noble Rot.” Spider One commented:

“I’d like to say making this video was a labor of love but it really was a test of my own sanity. What started out as some simple ‘follow the bouncing ball’ animation ended up being a challenge to see if I could actually finish this thing. Just shy of three thousand drawings later, it is what it is. Next time I attempt an animated video, I will choose a shorter song!”

Powerman 5000 Tease “Brave New World” Video

Powerman 5000 have posted a teaser for their new song “Brave New World.“ A video for the track is expected to be released on August 12. As previously reported, the band’s new album “The Noble Rot” will be released on August 28.
