L.A.'s the Sloths Share 'Haunted' from next week's 'The Amityville Murders' horror film

Today, Los Angeles garage rockers the Sloths unveil the video for “Haunted,” a track which appears on the soundtrack for the independent horror film The Amityville Murders. The film is released theatrically and on demand Friday, February 8.

Directed by Daniel Farrands and distributed by Skyline Entertainment, The Amityville Murders retraces the events of November 13, 1974, the night on which Ronald DeFeo, Jr. took a high-powered rifle and murdered his entire family as they slept. At his trial, DeFeo claimed that “voices” in the house commanded him to kill.

In addition to “Haunted,” the film’s soundtrack features an additional track, “Lust,” written by the Sloths’ Tom McLoughlin (who goes by "Tommy" for all Sloths activity) and Michael Rummans. Both songs appear on the Sloths' debut album Back from the Grave (2015) released by Lolipop / Burger Records. Coinciding with the video release, the Sloths have announced two appearances March 19 at the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX. The band will perform an afternoon set at the annual Burger Records showcase at Hotel Vegas and an evening showcase at Spider House Café & Ballroom.

Sloths’ frontman Tom McLoughlin is a filmmaker himself, having directed more than 40 feature film and television projects, including Friday the 13th Pt. VI: Jason Lives (1986) and the Golden Globe-nominated miniseries In a Child’s Name (1991). “It’s been a great experience to collaborate on the ‘Haunted’ video with Dan Farrands,” says McLoughlin. “The video features footage from the movie intercut with newly-filmed scenes of the band. I see The Amityville Murders as a dark, Poe-like gothic vision of possession based on the true 1970s crime story.”
