Filming is underway for Rob Zombies 3 From Hell, the sequel to The Devil’s Rejects and House of 1000 Corpses. Zombie has been keeping fans up to date almost daily with images from the set and casting announcements.
One of the latest stars to board the film, about the notorious Firefly family, is actor-musician Billy Blair who arrived on the Los Angeles set earlier this week. Not only is Blair a serious musician, he has had roles in many great films, such as Machete, Machete Kills, The Last Stand, Jonah Hex, and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
Blair is the frontman for the Dallas, Texas-based band JUNK who unleashed their EP titled “Double Soundtrack” (buy here) earlier this year and recently inked a worldwide deal with Zombie Shark Records, the new label from Noah “Shark” Robertson.
The three-piece band is rounded out by bassist and vocalist, Benjamin K. Bachman (Never Mind The Darkness, Zativah Kid), who has also produced various solo albums and material for films. Brian “Boog Nasty” (July Alley, Shadow Reichenstein) is on the drums.
JUNK recently recorded two new songs, “Like Lightning” and “Built to Last”, produced by Grammy Award winner Tre Nagella at Luminous Sound Studios in Dallas, TX. Both tracks are featured on the soundtrack to the film BLOOD SOMBRERO, starring Billy Blair.
The band’s latest singles, “Pop Rock Genocide” and “The Sasquatch”, were recorded and produced at Soundhaven Studios in Rockwall, TX by Jason Schauer and mixed by Travis Wyrick (P.O.D.,10 Years, Shinedown). The songs will be featured in the upcoming horror/comedy movie, Cherokee Creek. Artwork for ‘Double Soundtrack’ provided by Ashley Box.
Billy Blair joins previously announced cast members Sherri Moon Zombie, Sid Haig, Bill Moseley, Emilio Rivera (Sons of Anarchy), Dee Wallace (The Howling, Cujo), Daniel Roebuck (Final Destination), Jeff Daniel Phillips (The Lords of Salem), Sylvia Jefferies (Halloween II), Bill Oberst Jr. (Death House), and Austin Stoker (Assault on Precinct 13).
