They also capped the year off with a music and video licensing contract agreement with the world renown show ZOMBIE GO BOOM and made a debut cameo on their BEST OF 2012 MOMENTS video, featuring PROWLER's first song THE DEAD RISE AGAIN as the soundtrack to the entire video. All of this bringing together the close of two years, the conclusion of their special limited 4 PART EP collection, the selling out of the special limited box set, THE BRAIN SPLATTER PACK, the releasing of 3 videos, and the exclusive sponsorship from CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA and SURF SKATE MUSIC CULTURE -
