Swedish alternative metal band We Are The Catalyst are expected to release their highly-anticipated sophomore album, Elevation, on September 2nd, 2016 via 2016 Ferocity Records (pre-order your copy here) and recently release the lead single “Open Door”, which can be heard below. A band which only continues to see more hype and excitement thanks in large to their ripping live performances – a headline slot on the Planet Stage at the Shanghai Strawberry Festival, their BloodStock debut, shows opening for Delain, etc. – we wanted to help spread their message in a fun way. So, how better than with an exclusive list? We Are The Catalyst help you to survive with their Top 10 things you need in a Zombie Apocalypse.

10. Baseball Bat
– …or crowbar, pipe or anything durable and hard just laying around in wait of bashing zombie skulls.

09. Firecrackers and Lighter
– For luring Zombies away. Also, to celebrate luring them away….and to do it all over again once they hear the firecrackers and come back. So LOTS of firecrackers.

08. Cigarettes
– For trading. Since everybody, for some reason, has to smoke during a Zombie apocalypse, instead of working on their cardio; which is what they should be doing!

07. Rope
– You will always find a use for rope. Anybody who has played adventure games know this.

06. Pistol with One Bullet
– To use in case of infection.

05. Friends
– Lots of friends. As bait.

04. Booze
– Because after a long day Zombie slaying, you need to relax with a nice glass of Pinot Grigio.

03. Safety Glasses and Mask
– Blood splatter, anyone?

02. Duct/Gaffer Tape
– This actually applies even without a Zombie apocalypse.

01. Good Sneakers
– You don’t need to be the fastest runner in the world, you just need to be able to run faster than the person you are with!
