The teaser released Tuesday and titled “Initiation,” shows a group of student witches all done up in black skirts, high heels, white shirts and blunted witch hats as the march past a man with a cow's head and into the “house in New Orleans” (from the accompanying track, “The House of the Rising Sun”).
