Pit Stories: The Brawl Pit

We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week Australian metal band The Red Shore's manager Roman Koester shares a story from their recent tour in the States:

So we were on the 'No Mercy Tour' in the U.S in September 2010. We got to Pennsylvania, the show was at The Smiling Moose. We were staying with this girl who kindly put us up. She seemed into it and was up the front the whole show. The room was small, but completely packed. After a few encouraging words from our vocalist Chase, fights began to break out. Within a few seconds the entire place was brawling, about 6 individual fights, noses breaking, blood everywhere! The next thing I see is this guy running at the girl whose place we were staying at. At this point she was still facing the stage, intent on focusing on the music. Just as she decided to turn around, this big guy unleashes a haymaker straight into her face. We were certain she was going to drop, but to our surprise she stood her ground and smashed the dude right back in the face and dropped in, then proceeding to kick him in the face while he was down... America's rough!

The Red Shore just recently wrapped up some dates on Despided Icon's farewell tour in Australia after releasing their latest album, "The Avarice of Man" in September. You can check out some of their music here.

Check back every Tuesday for more pit stories.

The Red Shore Pulls Out of Summer Slaughter Tour

Melbourne’s The Red Shore has decided to pull out of the inaugural Australian Summer Slaughter Tour, scheduled for March 2009.

Here is an official statement from the band:

“We regret to inform our Australian fans and also the fans of the Summer Slaughter tour, that due to various reasons, The Red Shore will no longer be able to participate in the tour. Throughout the last few months we felt that certain circumstances pertaining to the tour did not suit the band and this coupled with some ongoing medical problems with some of our members and some financial constraint simply means that opting out of this tour was the best thing for the band at this point in time. We hope you will all still go to the shows and support both Aussie Metal and Metal worldwide. Thanks.”

Local openers will be announced on Monday, February 23, after the Battle Of Bands results have been decided.

The Australian Summer Slaughter 2009 Tour features Necrophagist, Dying Fetus, Aborted and The Faceless, plus the local openers to be announced. They are playing on the following dates:

The Red Shore Bassist Charged Over Bus Crash

The Sydney Morning Herald has issued the following report regarding Australian metalcore/death metal outfit THE RED SHORE:

Police have charged the bass player of a band in relation to a crash that killed two of his mates last year.

Geelong heavy metal band Red Shore were on tour when their van veered off the Pacific Highway, went down an embankment and smashed into a tree near Coffs Harbour just after 7am on December 19.

They were on their way to a gig in Sydney after performing at a Brisbane club the previous night.

Lead singer Damien Morris died at the crash site and roadie Andy Milner died later in hospital. Three other men also suffered serious injuries.

NSW police this week interviewed bass player Jamie Hope, who was driving the van, and other band members. They also met the dead men's families.

A NSW police spokesman confirmed that Hope had been charged on summons with negligent driving causing death and three counts of negligent driving causing grievous bodily harm. He will face court on August 4.

The charges come as the band prepares for its first tour since the tragedy.

The band will play 24 shows across the country - including Coffs Harbour - from May 22, with Hope filling Morris' place as lead singer.

500+ Turn Out For The Red Shore Vocalist's Funeral

The Geelong advertiser reports: Damien "Damo' Morris always told his mates all he wanted to do was get up on stage and scream with a heavy metal band and he was living that dream when his life was cut short.

The lead singer of acclaimed Geelong death metal band The Red Shore died at 27 on December 19 in a minivan crash near Coffs Harbour, while touring with All Shall Perish. His mate Andy Milner also died. They were on tour.

One of Damo's long-time mates Ryan Chameley told more than 500 mourners at Kardinia Heights Centre yesterday that they had been dorky kids together trying to start bands.

"He actually did it, he walked out on stage and thousands of people would just do what he said,' Mr Chameley said.

Damo's mother said she had been shocked and amazed by the level of media attention he, the band and the accident had received. "I was blessed to have a son who touched many lives and touched many hearts,' she said.

The Red Shore Singer Killed In Crash

The West Australian reports that the lead singer of the Geelong, Victoria, Australia-based heavy metal band THE RED SHORE has died in a crash on a New South Wales highway, according to the group's booking agent.

An employee for Pan Studios in Geelong said the company had received news that the singer, believed to be about 23, had died in the crash.

The group's driver and merchandiser had also been killed, she said.

The men died after their minivan veered off the Pacific Highway north of Coffs Harbour and hit a tree.

One man died at the scene and seven others were taken to Coffs Harbour Hospital.

One of the injured men, a 30-year-old who had been trapped in the van wreckage for an hour, died in hospital from serious head injuries.

THE RED SHORE were touring with U.S. death metal outfit ALL SHALL PERISH on the "Christmas Carnage" tour, when the crash occurred.

Both bands played at Brisbane's Club Phoenix on Tuesday night and were scheduled to play at Hermann's Bar at Sydney University on Wednesday night.

The van carrying eight men, most aged in their 20s, plunged down an embankment before rolling into a tree at about 7am (AEDT).

NSW police later said the two men killed were aged 22 and 27, and said relatives had asked that their names not be released.

Jarrod, a barman at The National Hotel in Geelong, where the band has played, described the lead singer as quiet and "chilled out".

"He was a nice, quiet guy, contrary to the band's music," Jarrod said.

Sally Laver, the owner of Pan Studios, said THE RED SHORE's musical career had just started to take off.

The band drew crowds of up to 200 people in their home town of Geelong, she said.

"They're one of our bigger bands," she said.

Ms Laver said the singer was "wonderful."

"He was a very sensitive young man."

"He was very passionate about everything he did."

Two People Killed In Christmas Carnage Tour Crash

Australia's The Sydney Morning Herald reports that two men have died and four have been injured after a minibus carrying men involved in a heavy metal band tour has crashed down an embankment of the Pacific Highway.

The minibus was in a convoy carrying the ALL SHALL PERISH and THE RED SHORE "deathcore" bands on their Christmas Carnage tour.

A spokeswoman for the tour organizer said that members of the Califorinia-based ALL SHALL PERISH were not involved in the crash. She was unable to provide details about the dead men.

The bands were due to perform at Hermann's bar at the University of Sydney tonight.

One man was pronounced dead at the crash site, while a second man died at Coffs Harbour hospital after being trapped for an hour in the minibus after the minibus veered off the road and rolled down an embankment near Cunninghams Bridge at Moonee Beach in northern NSW at 7am.

Four other male passengers are in a stable condition.

The bus had been carrying eight passengers, all men in their 20s, when it veered off the road, said Ambulance spokeswoman Clare Pemberton.

"There are varying degrees of injury with the other six patients, multiple fractures, abrasions, mainly cuts and bruises for the majority of them," she told Macquarie Radio.

"Most of them are walking. They seem to have come out okay."

Police have closed the highway in both directions, and have urged motorists to avoid the area if possible.

"There will be local traffic diversions in place, but we are urging people to avoid the area if at all possible," a police spokesman said.
