“Haunting” is the perfect last-minute addition to your party playlist

L.A. Witch is here with some spooky new tunes, just in time for Halloween.

Today, the band premieres new single "Haunting," exclusively on NYLON, and announces its forthcoming EP, Octubre. But don't let the name fool you. You'll still be spinning these tunes long after you've gotten over the candy-induced coma. 

L.A. Witch has dipped into a collection of older songs that fit the vibe of the season for Octubre, harnessing the creepy atmospheric vibes into a five-song project. “Octubre is a collection of older songs that we rarely play live," L.A. Witch told NYLON, "but [we] wanted to revisit them since they’re dark and a bit spooky, and felt right for the season."

It's the first time L.A. Witch ever worked with a producer, tapping Mr. Pharmacist aka Gregg Forman for the EP. "We experimented with different textures and sounds for these songs," the band added. This culminated in the perfect balance of sinister and punk that demands to be heard. 

Octubre comes out this Friday, November 2, via Suicide Squeeze and is available for pre-order now. Stream the first track, below, and if you're in L.A. or Europe, head out to hear L.A. Witch live this fall.

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
