Sherm and Gary have been the creative catalysts in such genre defining bands as Pentagram, Earthride, and Spirit Caravan, and now they launch their newest, blazing heavy rock venture.

Blitzed out, stoned heaviness is the order as this collection of tales of reefer madness and alligator fights is slated to be released on vinyl in October by Ripple Music.

"Sherm is completely shredding the vocals, undoubtedly turning in his best performance to date, as he is more than ably backed by the rip and tear of the triple-guitar attack courtesy of Gary on slide & lead guitar teamed up with Jason Fisher and Rob Portillo's riffing and rolling. Match that with the full on rhythmic assault of Darren Waters on bass, and the single moniker'd Cougin on drums, and this band is ready to pummel the unsuspecting ear drums of those about to burn."

Dave Sherman Talks Possible Spirit Caravan Reunion

Metal Kaoz recently conducted an interview with Dave Sherman (ex-Spirit Caravan, Earthride) who talked about his new band, Weed is Weed, and the group's future touring plans. Dave also revealed that there is a talk with Scott "Wino" Weinrich about an upcoming Spirit Caravan reunion. An excerpt follows:

Metal Kaoz: I know WEED IS WEED has played several Maryland based shows over the years, but now with a properly released full length album on the horizon, are there any plans to take the band on the road in 2013 for an extended period of time?

Yes! We want to tour as much as we can for this record to get the name out there, so we are booking as many shows as we can for 2013.

Metal Koaz: Sherm, you've been a fixture in the Maryland/DC Doom scene from the start, and have shared the stage with everyone from Wino and Hank III to SOURVEIN and just recently CLUTCH. Have you ever given any thought to doing a solo record? I can't even begin to imagine the all-star lineup you could assemble! More...
