RedHook have unleashed one of their heaviest singles yet, and their first of 2024, with ‘Scream 2’.
The new track was conceptualised as a sequel to the band’s 2020 single ‘Cure 4 Psycho’ and is a snarling new tune that packs a deeper, defiant message.
As vocalist Emmy Mack has explained:
“‘Scream 2’ is the next chapter in a painfully relatable horror story for anyone who has survived narcissistic abuse. It’s about the aftermath of escaping the narcissist.
“Once you remove their power, they may continue trying to hurt you by whatever means remain available to them: vindictive mind games, smear campaigns, sending ‘flying monkeys’ to do their bidding, weaponising your trauma against you.
“This is a song about refusing to let them draw more blood. And, unlike the ‘Scream’ movie franchise, there will be no further sequels. This ends here.”

The new track follows a huge 2023 for the band, after they supported legendary The Smashing Pumpkins and Jane’s Addiction in their homeland of Australia, before going on to a largely sold-out headline tour of their own.
They also supported Stand Atlantic across the UK and Europe – their third time touring the continent.
‘Scream 2’ and November release ‘Tourist’ are said to be the first tastes of a larger release said to be announced in the coming months.
