Mike IX Williams Returning To The Stage In April

EyeHateGod frontman Mike IX Williams successfully underwent a liver transplant last month and continues a slow road to recovery. The IX Lives IX Lives Benefit, set to commence in Williams' hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana this coming weekend, was organized to help with his mounting medical expenses.

The three-day event will take place at Siberia and Poor Boys venues and includes appearances by Crowbar, Superjoint, Goatwhore, Thou, Classhole, Mountain Of Wizard, and many more acts bound together for the cause.

EyeHateGod will close Saturday night's show with a host of guest singers including Philip H. Anselmo (Superjoint, Down), Ben Falgoust (Goatwhore, Soilent Green), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Brain Tentacles, Corrections House), Hollise Murphy (Fat Stupid Ugly People), Shawn Knight (Child Bite), and more. See the day-to-day lineup below.

Though weekend passes are no longer available, the shows are not sold out. Remaining tickets will be available at the door for each show. Orange amplification has donated a Micro Dark amp with O headphones that will be raffled off along with EyeHateGod test presses and other Mike IX memorabilia.

In related news, Williams will make his return to the stage with EyeHateGod for a performance at this year's Berserker IV Music Fest in Pontiac, Michigan. Comments Williams: "These past few years have been somewhat of a rough ride for me health wise, but thanks to my super supportive fans, friends, and family, I am finally on the mend and looking forward to the future."

Awesome news. Glad he's on the mend and will be back prowling the stage soon. I wish I could go to the benefit shows. I hope they bring in a serious cash. His medical bills are probably outrageous. A liver transplant is probably in the range of $500k - maybe more.
