Horror punk from Sweden. For fans of The Misfits, The Murderdolls, Rancid, etc. Zombiesuckers have not been very active lately. However, they did post from their Facebook that there might be new music in 2018. Fingers crossed! For now, though, enjoy “I Turned Into a Monster” and “Endless Sleep” (ft. Michale Graves).
