More video from Saint Vitus!

Here’s some HD, multi-cam footage of another new jammer from the MetalSucks.net 10th Anniversary Bash at Saint Vitus Bar. Thanks to Max Volume Silence Live for this clip (See all clips here). It of course features our Jason, our new vocalist/synth/noise (and all around great) guy. Watch below!

Change is good.

Thanks brooklyn, you fucking rule. Thanks to MetalSucks.net and Saint Vitus Bar for having us!

If you were at Saint Vitus Bar last night, then you know that we are embarking on a new creative and sonic chapter starting this year. It starts with welcoming a new member into the fold, the incredibly talented Jason Sherman (Torrential Downpour) on vocals/synth/noise. He adds a new dimension to our tunes and we are really excited to share what we’ve been working on. You heard some new tunes last night, here’s a taste courtesy of MetalSucks.net.

We have big plans for the spring, including some recording and a few more shows coming up.

5/13 – Lucky 13, Brooklyn NY w/ Tusko, King Dead, Machine Arms (RSVP)

Help us get back on the road!

Our beloved Lt. Van is currently in the shop getting some new guts today after trying to strand us on LI. We managed to make it to both of our shows thanks to a lot of kindness, rides, and borrowed gear- and we thank everyone who came out and helped us out!

If you ever thought about snagging some merch from us, now would be a great time! Everything is currently discounted and all our music is name-your-own-price. Help us get Lt. Van back on the road!

<3 Thanks

If you know who we are, then we don’t need to tell you who Lazer/Wulf is. If you somehow missed that train, for shame! But here’s your chance. Sometimes, a special bond is formed between similarly disturbed individuals, like the Notebook, but with chainsaws. and guitars. We had been following their music before sharing a stage together last year, and to say this band rules is an understatement. This will be a week of strange instrumental magic. Can’t wait to see all your faces!

8/25 – Kung Fu Necktie, Philadelphia PA w/ X-Hunters (RSVP)
8/26 – Saint Vitus Bar, Brooklyn NY w/ Chrome Over Brass (RSVP)
8/27 – The Anchor, Kingston NY w/ Top Secret Special Guest! (RSVP)
8/28 – RPM Fest, Greenfield MA w/ Moon Tooth (RSVP)
