Cult survivor, avant garde director and filmmaker, leader of femme-lead horror film collective Fatale Collective, host of the Trust Me podcast, co-writer behind the scenes of Britney Spears’ hit “Ooh La La,” former child ventriloquist, vamp-chic femme fatale: what isn’t Lola Blanc? A wildly creative multi-talented artist, Lola Blanc is a shape-shifter of sorts, and now, after the success of her past single “Angry Too” (harnessing over 24 million streams on Spotify and millions more on YouTube), she is coming forward with an equally jaw-dropping spooky single just in time for the colder months: “Here Come the Wolves”. Accompanied by a haunting new music video directed by Lola Blanc herself, “Here Comes the Wolves” is a song about justice and how we define it. Topical, important, angry, and empowering, this vampire-chic feminist anthem will stop you in your tracks.

Dark electro industrial act SPANKTHENUN picks up where The Bunker Tapes Vol. I and the closing track, “Dominate” left us.
Now, The Bunker Tapes Vol. II continues the journey of mid 90s influenced industrial beats and moves into a more dark electro territory, then finally to a pure EBM vision with tracks like “Industrial Beats” and “Lockdown”. Like the previous album, Vol. II includes original tracks and remixes of the fan favorite tracks like the face-ripping “Off Beatings”, the introspective “I Self Me” and “Right Father”.
Indeed the album is more substantial than its feel of late 90s dark electro. “The Smoking Gun” is a stark reflection of the political nightmare that turned a deadly disease into a worldwide pandemic, once only thought possible in sci fi films. “Lockdown” takes the EBM vibe down a darker path in its idea that “we are part of the broken machine.”
