Ex-Thumbscrew Members Form Poacher

Members of former Texas hardcore bands Thumbscrew, 25 Dollar Massacre and Bitter End have started a new band called Poacher.

According to the band, "In the past year most of the bands have either called it quits or have chosen to remain on hiatus. Other members of these memorable bands have joined other bands or went on with their future endeavors. With members from Thumbscrew (Poopie and Drew), vocalist of 25 Dollar Massacre (Chris) and former Bitter End bassist (Keith), this should prove to be something new and unique."

Poacher will be hitting the studio in late may and will have a label announcement following immediatly afterward.

In the meantime, you can check out a few tracks at the band's MySpace.

"The new material is much heavier and pissed off then our older stuff." says their singer Daniel. "Herb (Imagine It) has really took us under his wing and made us feel right at home, making us very comfortable. I'm sure good things will come from this friendship as well as our partnership."

After recording, Thumbscrew will do a stint of shows on the Six Feet Under, Sworn Enemy, Animosity, Job For A Cowboy tour. Here are the dates Thumbscrew are playing:
