Tony Todd, The Candyman and FREAK 13 with Believe In Me
Tony Todd, the actor who portrayed the iconic Candyman character in three Hollywood films has collaborated with Texas monster metal band FREAK13 on a Candyman-inspired song called "Believe In Me".
"I`ve always been a huge fan of the Candyman character and of Tony Todd and when we recorded this song we kicked around the idea of approaching him about doing a narration for it," FREAK13`s chief songwriter Chester Moore.
"We ended up playing at Screamfest, an awesome horror convention in Orlando, and he was appearing as well so we talked with him about it. He was excited about the idea and a few months later we recorded it in Dallas. It came out simply amazing. His presence is unmistakable and it is a true honor to have worked with him."
"Believe in Me" has been uploaded to http://www.myspace.com/creaturesofcrystallake, the official tour page for FREAK13 and First Jason`s upcoming summer jaunt, Krampus the Movie`s "Creatures of Crystal Lake Tour".
First Jason is the punk metal band fronted by Ari Lehman, the actor who portrayed the first incarnation of Jason Voorhees in "Friday the 13th"." Lehman and FREAK13 first played together at FREAK13`s headlining gig at the Whisky-A-Go-Go on Friday the 13th two years ago and have since collaborated many times.
