LVCRFT, the maestros of spooky music, have returned with their fifth album, appropriately titled “V,” and it’s nothing short of a hauntingly beautiful masterpiece. This trio of music industry giants, Evan “Kidd” Bogart, Amanda “MNDR” Warner, and Peter Wade, have outdone themselves with an album that not only serves as a musical journey but also as an invitation to explore the eerie universe of LVCRFT.
From the moment you press play, “V” immerses you in a gripping narrative, with Skeleton Sam’s desperate quest to rescue his lost love, Seraphina, at its core. The album opens with a “found letter” from Samuel St. Skelevoie himself, setting the stage for an enigmatic love story. It’s not just about the music; it’s about becoming a part of the LVCRFT experience, and it’s one you won’t soon forget.
LVCRFT’s commitment to storytelling doesn’t stop with the album. They’ve announced a serialized “found footage” short film, set to unravel on social media throughout the Halloween season. This promises to peel back the layers of the LVCRFT universe and add even more depth to the chilling tale of Skeleton Sam.
What’s truly remarkable about LVCRFT is their ability to infuse the spooky spirit into their music year-round. Known for their work with music legends like Beyonce, Mark Ronson, Katy Perry, and Madonna, LVCRFT has a knack for creating iconic tracks that keep the Halloween lovers in all of us entertained. Their dedication to the mantra “Spooky Never Sleeps” has earned them billions of streams and a dedicated following.
The journey with LVCRFT began in 2019 when their single “Skeleton Sam” became a cult hit. Since then, they’ve consistently delivered Halloween hits that rival classics like “The Monster Mash” and “Thriller.” Their partnership with Spirit Halloween stores, collaborations with renowned composer Christopher Young, and involvement in popular projects like “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and “Hocus Pocus 2” have further solidified their position as the masters of spooky music.
“V” builds upon the rich LVCRFT lore, offering a diverse musical palette that ranges from pop to rock and everything in between. The production is impeccable, and the vocal layering adds depth to the tracks. The album’s timing couldn’t be more perfect, arriving just in time to set the Halloween mood.
Personal favorites such as “Scream! (For Halloween)” and “Late Night Rider” showcase the incredible variation in musical elements and the band’s polished sound. It’s a remarkably easy listen, making it accessible to both dedicated fans and newcomers alike.
In conclusion, “V” is a testament to the dedication and passion of LVCRFT. It’s an album that not only delivers on the musical front but also immerses you in a chilling tale of love and longing. As Halloween approaches, LVCRFT’s “V” is the soundtrack you need to set the mood for the spookiest season of the year. It’s evident that a tremendous amount of work went into this project, and the result is nothing short of spectacular.
