On December 21, Austin’s Red 7 will provide the perfect soundtrack for the predicted apocalypse, by reuniting a number of influential area bands.
Those bands include At All Cost, Recover, Employer, Employee, Pack of Wolves, Visitors, and Assacre.
Krum Bums and Spiritual Wives will also be playing the Red 7 show.
“These bands pushed the limits of Austin’s music scene during their time, and sadly, weren’t appreciated until after they had disbanded,” says Red 7 Manager Joaquin Ramirez, who put together the lineup.
Members of Recover went on to form Young Love, who released two successful albums on Island/Def Jam Records, and their drummer, Jimmy Vela, now plays with The Sword. Mike Carrigan of At All Cost now tours with Darkest Hour, just so you know.
Vela, who will play with Recover during a short break from The Sword’s massive world tour, says he’s not sure exactly what it is about his old band’s music that still resonates with so many fans, but he’s excited to reunite with friends.
“We may have just hit the right chord within certain people. We are thankful people still consider us their favorite band,” he says. “We all usually come home during the winter holidays so its fun to be able to have the opportunity to do these ‘get together’ shows since we all live in separate cities. Recover obviously isn’t our main objective any more, but it will always remain part of who we are.”
