Ashnikko has shared new track ‘Halloweenie IV: Innards’, the latest from their ‘Halloweenie’ series.

The song serves as the genre-blending artist’s annual spooky season release, beginning the tradition in 2018 with ‘Halloweenie’.

Over the four years of Halloween themed releases to celebrate their favourite holiday, Ashnikko has released other singles ‘Halloweenie II Pumpkin Spice’ and ‘Halloweenie III Seven Days’. 

The new track puts an Ashnikko spin on the iconic Czech Orchestral composition  ‘In The Hall of the Mountain King’, widely sampled and recreated in pop culture.

Listen to the new song below.

‘Halloweenie IV: Innards’ follows the American singer’s latest singles ‘Panic Attacks in Paradise’ and ‘Maggots’, along with their collaboration with Lady Gaga on ‘Plastic Doll’ from the ‘Dawn of Chromatica’ remix album.

Speaking to Rolling Stone UK about ‘Maggots’, Ashnikko explained how it had been inspired by online abuse they have faced from Incels.

 “Sometimes I get bombarded with these incel maggot parasite-like creatures on the internet. It makes me so fucking mad,” they said.

” I just needed an outlet and luckily my outlet is music. And I love angry femmes in music so that’s what I’m trying to do. I’m trying to release my aggression: my pent-up aggression through the medium of music. And yeah, I’m trying to rage, I’m trying to start a mosh pit.”

The artist added that they wanted to funnel that energy through music because they doesn’t “feel very comfortable in regular mosh pits”.

“I don’t really feel that comfortable in crowds generally, really,” they said. “I get super claustrophobic and just anxious, which has increased by tenfold since the pandemic. But yeah, with this song it’s supposed to be a safe space mosh pit, you know? A place for women, a place for femmes to release some anger because the world is tough.”

This summer Ashnikko performed a UK festival run at Reading and Leeds, Boardmasters and Life is Beautiful.

They are due to embark on the UK leg of their upcoming tour this December, starting with a sold out show in London’s O2 Kentish Town.
