CASEY ORR (Rigor Mortis, GWAR) To Fill-In On WARBEAST Tour

WARBEAST is pleased to announce that Casey Orr (Rigor Mortis, GWAR) will join them as their fill-in bassist while on the road this spring. The upcoming Fate or Chaos Tour with GWAR and Wilson kicks off in Tucson, AZ on April 10.

WARBEAST vocalist Bruce Corbitt states, “Obviously, we are all psyched to have Casey on board for this upcoming tour with GWAR and Wilson. I’ve always respected Casey’s professionalism, abilities and musicianship from our many years together in Rigor Mortis.” He continues, “this will be a natural and comfortable fit for WARBEAST. Plus, he’s still buds with all of the guys in GWAR, so this tour will be a blast… to say the least.”

“I am very excited to accept the challenge of playing bass for the mighty WARBEAST! I’m looking forward to crushing skulls with my brothers in the Beast, and I’m totally stoked to be bringing the thunder on the road this April, supporting my Scumdog family – GWAR,” adds Casey Orr. “Texas Thrash will Destroy!”

“This by far will be the most solid lineup to date with Casey Orr joining us for this tour. I’ve known him all of my life and it just seems right,” adds WARBEAST guitarist Scott Shelby. “Casey is hyped as well, as is the whole band to move on to this new era and continue to Destroy!”

“I’m looking forward to the rhythm section being tighter than ever,” states WARBEAST drummer Joey Gonzalez. “I know Casey will be killer to learn from and jam with.”

TWR Radio Favorites AVATAR Release New Song, Tour Dates

(NEW YORK, NY) – Swedish visual masterminds AVATAR unveiled their latest video for Smells Like A Freakshow today. Click HERE or the image above to watch.

Frontman Johannes Eckerström adds his own words about the new video:

“The video illustrates inner conflict in an explicit manner, using abuse of unjust power in different contexts. The lyrical themes of downfall, embracing of decadence and failed attempts to escape are pointed out by the fact that ultimately the bad guys win.”

The band kicks off their very first U.S. tour supporting LACUNA COIL and SEVENDUST with an intimate performance at The Studio at Webster Hall in New York City on Wednesday, January 30.

1. Let Us Die
2. Torn Apart
3. Ready For The Ride

5. Black Waltz

10. Smells Like A Freakshow

The band released their newest record, Black Waltz earlier this year to much critical acclaim.

RWAKE: Announce End of Year Shows

Arkansas’ backwoods doomsayers RWAKE announced a series of end of year shows, closing out with special show in Atlanta, GA with NEUROSIS, PRIMATE & US CHRISTMAS on December 29. A complete listing of dates is included below.

The band recently premiered their disturbingly controversial new video, It Was Beautiful, But Now It’s Sour. The 12-minute short film, directed Danish horror aficionado Casper Haugegaard, features devastating slow motion close-ups of actual pig fetuses being absolutely annihilated by a variety of implements.

RWAKE released Rest, their first album in over four years, last year to critical acclaim.  The harrowingly beautiful progressive/doom/sludge masterpiece is currently available for streaming here.

RWAKE Tour Dates:
Dec 28        Nashville, TN        Exit In    w/ Forest of Tygers, Hellbender
Dec 29        Atlanta, GA        The Masquerade (Upstairs) w/ Neurosis, US Christmas, Primate Tickets

Updated RWAKE news/tour/release information is available via the Relapse Records website and the band’s official Facebook page.

AVATAR holds their place as one of  top requested artists of 2012 on The Welding Room.

The smash hit single, Ready For The Ride, powered itself into the top played songs on program. So it comes as no surprise that The Welding Room alliance is very familiar with AVATAR.

If you’re not – familiar with the band or song, we apologize for your ignorance. It’s never too late!

However, for TWR Alliance loyalists, AVATAR playing in the States is a welcome surprise.

 

(NEW YORK, NY) – AVATAR, the band that brought you the gut wrenching side show video for Black Waltz and the visually dazzling video for Torn Apart will support SEVENDUST and LACUNA COIL this winter. This is the very first time the band will play the US, dates will stretch up and down the east coast.

 

Drummer John Alfredsson adds his own words:

“It feels truly amazing to get the opportunity to make our first strike in the US with Sevendust and Lacuna Coil. 2013 will be the year of Avatar in the states and we are excited to bring the madness to you!”

The band released their newest record, Black Waltz earlier this year to much critical acclaim
