While we know Kat Von D as one of the most recognized faces in the tattoo and makeup world, the musician side has always been brewing. Classically trained since the age of 5, Kat has spend her entire life crafting a love for multiple genres of music and collaborating with artists such as Gunship, IAMX and others, before recently releasing her quite spectacular debut album, Love Made Me Do It. The record, a synth wave extravaganza of dark pop, is quite the record, with a full band that includes Gregg Foreman AKA Mr. Pharmacist (Cat Power, The Gossip), Sammi Doll (IAMX), Dave Parley (Prayers)and Brynn Route (contortionist) and features guest appearances from Dave Growl, Linda Perry, Ladyhawke and others.
We’ve partnered up with Von D to give away 5 (!) pairs of tickets to four shows on the West Coast leg of her upcoming tour, as well as 5 signed copies of the limited red variant vinyl LP of Love Made Me Do It. Instead of just doing a traditional giveaway, we thought it would be fun to play a little trivia scavenger hunt, featuring five questions that each person entering the contest must find the answers to. Nothing crazy difficult, it’ll just take a small amount of searching on your part, google will be your guide. Info and rules can be found below the music videos for singles, “Exorcism,” “Fear You,” and “I Am Nothing” below.
QUESTION 1: Gunship’s Dan Haigh mixed “Love Made Me Do It.” Which “Master of Horror” appears on Gunship’s 2015 track, “Tech Noir”?
