BRUJERIA were forced to perform without founding member Dino Cazares (a.k.a. Asesino, ex-FEAR FACTORY) on Saturday (July 3) in McAllen, Texas after Cazares was bitten on his leg by a brown recluse spider, causing a massive infection several days prior to the gig. "I was hospitalized for two days with antibiotics being pumped through my veins and a fever of 103, I was having nightmares and hallucinating and my leg swelled up with blisters... I should be better in a few days", says Dino.
BRUJERIA will make a sixth attempt to play their first Los Angeles show ever on Wednesday, July 14 at The Key in Hollywood, Ca. The prior five attempts were shut down by everything from the local church groups to the chief of police, according to a statement from the band. Special guests at the show will be NME, DEMISE and ALL SHALL PERISH.
BRUJERIA bassist Hongo (a.k.a. Shane Embury, NAPALM DEATH) reportedly played guitar during the McAllen show, with Fantasma (additional vocals) taking over on bass.
