Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 17.37.56

Fable Cry are a unique, Nashville-based, theatrical scamp rock band. Bonding over the whimsical, theatrical and comical, and donning a variety of musical influences from Danny Elfman to Queen to Gogol Bordello, Fable Cry showcases their vaudevillian persona in all their music and performances.

They recently dropped a spectacular video, “Dead or Alive (For Now),” from their latest album, We’ll Show You Where the Monsters Are Fable Cry’s songs cover topics like making Frankenstein babies, and the kind of things that happen when somebody forgets to lock the gate at the mechanical monster park. Symbolism or just bizarre, creepy storytelling? Whichever – the band kicks ass.” New York Music Daily stated. They sound like our kind of people!

The new video, which you can watch below, features some cool homages to the silent horror era. It feels like a loving tribute to an often forgotten part of horror history – alongside some great puppeteering. Check out these screenshots to see what we mean.
