Let Douglas Von Irvin’s Carnival introduce you to a new genre of music, the effervescent Monster Garage Pop, with characters as unique as the songs themselves.

Let Douglas Von Irvin’s Carnival take you on a journey into a world of quirky characters through their unique brand of “monster garage pop”. Off the back of the debut EP “Meet The Monsters”, Douglas Von Irvin’s Carnival is back with another round of eclectic characters to rock all you Carnies! With the releases of the single “Attach of the 50 FT Woman” ringmaster Douglas Von Irvin and “spiritual advisor” Dr. Prycenstein have one more time weaved their spooky magic.

Through their work with drummer/ producer Matt Starr (Ace Frehley, Mr.Big), The Carnival have a few more tricks up their sleeve for an exciting 2024.  With a killer cast of supporting musicians, Douglas Von Irvin’s Carnival will continue to take their energetic live sideshow to venues across North America, the UK, Europe and the world of the paranormal… 

“The band’s power pop sound and theatrical nature is reminiscent of that of bands like Blue Oyster Cult and Cheap Trick. Add in a pinch of spooky and you’ve got the next Alice Cooper band”, Anabel DFlux, Rock Revolt Magazine

“It’s a carnival horror-lovers just won’t be able to resist”, Eric Alper, music correspondent

The Douglas Von Irvin’s Carnival single “Punk Rock Heart” was ranked one of the Top 50 songs of 2021 by Cashbox Magazine Canada
