You just never know where Dead Weight will pop up...

Oshkosh's very own, Haunted Heads, just released a video for the opening track on their self-titled record, "36 Sharpened Saws." Fun facts time!

1. Their song, "No Sleep", can be heard playing in the background of the scene where Charlie, Samantha, and Alex have dinner.
2. Eric Van Thiel, guitarist/singer, played Samantha's co-worker, Doug.
3. EVT wears a nifty shirt in the video.

No matter where you are, support your local scene and check out the video!
