EyeHateGod To Release New Album

Following countless years of personal hardships, studio disasters and times of music industry indecision, New Orleans' own EyeHateGod, with much relief and excitement, is proud to announce the release of a brand new full-length.

Entirely assembled and financed by the band, the self-titled, eleven-track long player will be released on May 27th by the band's partners at Housecore Records in North America, May 26th by Century Media in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and May 21st by Daymare in Japan.

Comments vocalist Mike IX Williams, "I have to say I don't believe we've lost nary a step in the creation of this album and we think these newer songs are a killer combination of classic EyeHateGod mixed along with our best production, mixing, engineering and songwriting in thirteen years. The main and total tragic break in the chain, was obviously last year's death of our great friend and drummer, Joey LaCaze. However, his original drum tracks made it onto the final master recordings and we're fucking psyched about that... As for working with Housecore, it was a no-brainer. We've always been a family, and will always remain a family."

Adds Housecore founder Philip H. Anselmo, "Being a part of the new EHG record is a dream come true. I've known, supported and loved the guys for almost as long as I've been playing music myself, and it is our pleasure here at The Housecore Records Compound to have 'em aboard. And I gotta mention, having heard the new record, this is the EyeHateGod record every true fan has been waiting for.... Hail!"

EyeHateGod Cancels Australian Shows

EyeHateGod's 25 Years Of Dysfunctional Family Abuse Tour 2014, which included five Australian dates, was derailed when the band was left stranded at the airport.

Comments the band in an official statement: "Due to poor planning by the Australian booking agent, EyeHateGod are sorry to say our Australian tour is now cancelled. We were left at the airport without our flights booked and then were expected to pay for them out of pocket an hour before boarding time.

"We were literally left standing with passports in hand but no way to travel. Many, many apologies to our Australian friends and fans. We will be back as soon as we can. Please understand this is not our fault. EyeHateGod loves Australia and were super excited to come back over."

The band is currently looking to book some last minute U.S. shows in place of these cancelled dates. Previously announced performances in Reno, San Francisco, Oakland, Seattle and Denver later this month are unaffected by the unfortunate news.

Housecore Sucessfully Blends Horror and Metal

Housecore Horror Film and Heavy metal festival masterminds, Corey Mitchell and Philip H. Anselmo brought Austin, Texas a rare entertainment opportunity, packaged in human flesh, marred by celluloid cigarette burns--a four-day, multi-stage, multi-tent, multi-everything horror-movie festival. Industry people arrived from all around the world to help support this lofty endeavor.

The gorier the better as many of the major stars of the film portion of the festival had participated in legendary blood spillers such as the "Nekromantik" film series (Director Jörg Buttgereit ), "Coffin Joe" (Director José Mojica Marins ) and "Friday the 13th." Ari Lehman made film history when Jason Voorhees finally sprung to life after the murder of his mother. Lehman attended the festival not only as a film celebrity, but as a musician. Nefarious of Macabre joined Lehman on stage in his First Jason band to perform campy horror metal songs about that guy in the hockey mask. More...

Dale Crover To Fill In With EyeHateGod

Following the death of EyeHateGod drummer Joey LaCaze, legendary Melvins basher Dale Crover recently volunteered to seize the drum stool for the band's scheduled set at the inaugural Housecore Horror Film Fest later this month.

Joey LaCaze passed away of respiratory failure on August 23rd in New Orleans following the band's five-week Undermining Society's Rules Since 1988 European Tour. LaCaze was 42.

Said the band in a collective statement: "With the recent passing of our longtime friend and drummer, Joey LaCaze, there's no way to pay him a better tribute than EyeHateGod performing alongside one of his main influences and favorite musicians!"

EyeHateGod will level Housecore with Crover on October 27th at Emo's in Austin alongside Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Goblin and more.

The band has also booked an additional handful of live takeovers following the fest including a special Halloween show at the fabled House of Shock in Jefferson, Louisiana. The drummer for those dates will be announced in the coming weeks. Confirmed dates are included below. EyeHateGod was also recently covered in our Sunday Old School column here.

Column

Sunday Old School: EyeHateGod

With the recent passing of their drummer Joey LaCaze, it seemed an appropriate time to look back on Eyehategod, one of the most esteemed metal bands to ever come from New Orleans, a city which has produced some of the finest music to ever come from the United States of America. Eyehategod were formed in 1988, on April 20th to be precise, by LaCaze and guitarist Jimmy Bower, before being joined shortly afterwards by vocalist, Mike Williams, bassist Steve Dale and second guitarist, Brian Patton. They soon recorded two demos entitled, "Garden Dwarf Woman Driver" and "Lack of Almost Everything" and sent them off to various labels, eventually finding success in their pursuit when they were signed to a French label named Intellectual Convulsion. Through the label, they released their first full length album, "In the Name of Suffering," which was noticeably more hardcore in sound than their later work. Not long after releasing their debut, Intellectual Convulsion Records folded and the band were forced to find a new label, which came in the shape of Century Media, who re-released the album.

The following year, Eyehategod got to work on their sophomore record, "Take as Needed for Pain," which displayed their blues and southern rock influences a lot more prominently than their previous efforts. It also featured the recording debut of their new bass player, Mark Schultz, though this would be his only album with the group. The album was released to a positive response, with Mike Williams claiming that it remains almost all of the band members' favourite material, and allowed them to tour with other established acts such as White Zombie and Corrosion of Conformity amongst others. Despite the positive response, the band was put on hold for a short while whilst the members of the band contributed to other projects, perhaps the most notable being Jimmy Bower who performed drums on the Crowbar album, "Broken Glass" and "NOLA," the debut album by supergroup, Down which also featured the frontmen of Crowbar, Corrosion of Conformity and Pantera. Some of the other members' activities included Brian Patton performing guitar duties on the debut Soilent Green album, "Pussysoul" and Mike Williams contributing to Metal Maniacs magazine. More...
