The Rockabilly Punk band has a long history, going back to 1989 with a few songs having made to the old days of MTV's 'Alternative Nation.' The crowd they gather at the shows goes between young men and women dressed in what can only be best described as the 'Greaser' look which the styles is from the 1950s and 60s as in the movie 'Grease' (starting John Travolta and Olivia Newton John) and some modern day punk styles who are known to be the crowd surfers in the group.

Nekromantix is a three piece band where it main instrument is the upright bass designed from the small coffin performed by the singer, known as Nekroman who dons a very unique and notable style mohawk. On drums is a glamorous Lux who known for performing in high heels and Franc on the rockabilly guitars and back up vocals.

Currently, Lux unfortunately departed from the band and they are currently taking video auditions for their next addition, according to their Facebook page. Several fans seemingly have shared the post and applied for the position themselves. No further information is available at this time.

The last performance of their tour in Las Vegas contained a packed house with a friendly circle pit of dancers and fans singing along to 'Who Killed the Cheerleader,' 'Alive,' 'Haunted Cathouse' and 'Alice in Psycholand.'

Nekromantix have a few dates in the summer planned in Europe with no further announcement at this time in lieu of searching for a new drummer. Tour dates available on their Facebook page.
