Eyehategod will, in fact, be playing the upcoming Housecore Horror Film Festival, despite the recent death of their drummer, Joey LaCaze.
The Melvins’ Dale Crover will be manning the kit for Eyehategod’s set, and the Melvins have also agreed to play the fest.
The Melvins will play October 26 with an appearance alongside Gwar, Whitechapel, Goatwhore, and Iron Reagan.
“Sadly, Crowbar will not be able to make the gig. But madly great news is that the mighty Melvins are gonna jam the fucking night away,” boasts fest co-founder Phil Anselmo.
“In the wake of severe tragedy, with Eyehategod drummer Joey LaCaze passing away recently, Melvins drummer Dale Crover will be filling in for an unforgettable alliance,” Anselmo says.
“Dammit, you KNOW you have to see this unique performance! If you don’t have a ticket to the Eyehategod, get one ASAP to witness this historic event. It’ll be historic on so many levels!”
That is fucking cool. I wish I could go.
Fly me in to review it, Phil.
