Behold the new video for "Supermoon"

We are so excited to finally share our new video for "Supermoon"!!! It was hefty project that we have been working on since the spring and we are very proud of the final result. We had so many lovely homies help us out and we are so grateful to you all. We also want to extend a HUGE thank you to our friend Jeff Tuyay for shooting the video. His band DIM WIT  is a wig filled wonderland and you should check them out. 

 

The "Supermoon" Music Video is DONE!!!

We are excited to announce that our new video for "Supermoon" is fully completed and ready to go. We are celebrating its release October 18th at The Fixin' To with our dearest friends Dreckig (who make a cameo in the video) and Dim Wit (Jeff help shoot and direct the video). And to sweeten the deal Tom Ghoulie will be kicking off the evening with their smooth pre-historic jams. You can also take part in the Wig Chat booth (with wigs provided) so you can star in our hit Instagram talk show. There's also lots of great photo ops with elaborate props from the video. And last but not least there will be A COSTUME CONTEST. We are so excited to share this with you!!! Big love to all of our homies who helped make this video possible. 

We have a 7'' and music video on the way

We're excited to announce that we have been working this spring and summer on a music video for our song "Supermoon". Get ready for a Havania Whaal take on Sci-Fi and silent films as we take you on a journey to the moon. It's been an extensive production as we have been hand building each set out of recycled materials, and staging all of it in our basement.  The video is in the editing stages at the moment and we hope to debut it this fall. Keep an eye out for the release show in Portland. 

 

In more fun news we are wrapping up the finishing touches on a brand new 7". This will be our first time on vinyl and we can't wait to announce the release date for that.
