Exclusive: KISSING CANDICE Cover MICHAEL JACKSON’s “Thriller”

Published

on

Arguably one of the greatest songs of all time, Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” is a pop culture phenomenon that boggles the mind. The title track to the best-selling album of all time (with an estimated 66 million copies sold), the song is a tribute to all things horror, featuring a voice-over from genre legend Vincent Price, creaking doors, thunder claps, howling wind, and more. It’s pure genre fare distilled into one of the funkiest, grooviest tracks the world has ever heard and that’s not even taking into account Joe Dante’s award-winning music video, which was the first ever video to be added to the National Film Registry!

Today, we’ve got a wicked cover of the famous song from Kissing Candice, who will be terrorizing the stage on the Summer of Screams tour. The band tells Dread Central, “We are all big MJ fans! We were watching the video for Thriller and it just clicked. The aesthetic and lyrical content of the song fit us perfectly so we decided to hit the studio with Zach Jones and put our own spin on it.” Give it a listen below!
