Watch New Years Day Perform ‘Hurts Like Hell’ and ‘Vampyre’ at NXT Halloween Havoc [Videos]

Rock band New Years Day came to WWE NXT on the road to Halloween for a special performance of their bloodthirsty new single “Vampyre,” which kicked off NXT Halloween Havoc Night One on Tuesday, October 24. Last night, the band returned for NXT Halloween Havoc Night Two, this time performing the single “Hurts Like Hell” on Halloween night.

You can watch both performances from the professional wrestling events below!

A reboot of a long-running Halloween tradition in the world of professional wrestling, this year’s two-night NXT Halloween Havoc was hosted by pro wrestlers Shotzi and Scarlett, and it featured 16 matches across the two nights. Themed matches included a “Lights Out Match” and a “Devil’s Playground Match,” with various wrestlers dressing up in horror costumes.

“We are absolutely ecstatic to have the incredible opportunity to perform alongside our beloved WWE family once more,” shares the band. “WWE NXT holds a special place in our hearts as it’s where we first began our journey alongside the amazing Rhea Ripley. It is truly an honor to return to this platform as New Year’s Day performing our new song ‘Vampyre’, especially as a tribute to our favorite holiday.”

Fans can look forward to seeing New Years Day live in concert this fall as the band hits the road in the US. They’ll be joining In This Moment and Ice Nine Kills on the Kiss of Death Tour, kicking off November 3rd in Gary, IN. Additional stops include: Kansas City, Milwaukee, Orlando, Atlanta, New York City, D.C., and more.

Kerrang! Magazine counts New Years Day among an elite handful of bands inspiring the next generation. Led by “the vibrant force of nature that is frontwoman Ash Costello,” New Years Day unleash anthems of discontent and empowerment, delivered with gothic flair and theatrical bombast.

It’s a sound that crashed into the Mainstream Rock Top 40 for the first time in 2019 with a top 15 rock radio charting single “Shut Up” followed up by the cathartic “Hurts Like Hell,” which finished 2022 as one of SiriusXM Octane’s Top 25 songs of the year. Each successive victory is a celebration of hard-fought creative freedom, unstoppable determination, and dedicated fans. Throngs of diehards and newcomers alike sing and sweat along with New Years Day, at festivals, in clubs, or on tours with Halestorm, Falling In Reverse, Motionless In White, Ice Nine Kills, and In This Moment.

Saints and sinners, victims and victors. In sound and vision, New Years Day walk the line between darkness and light. Victim to Villain (2013), Malevolence (2015), and Unbreakable (2019) deeply resonate with listeners who cherish them as timeless keepsakes, marking different times in their own personal evolution. It’s because Costello, who skillfully conjures horror and comic book aesthetics as allegory, is one of them.

In cinematic music videos, transcendent live performances, and daily interaction (virtual or in-person) with like-minded misfits, this band makes pleasure from pain. Even when it hurts like hell.
