Crumbsuckers To Reunite For Anniversary Show

Legendary New York hardcore/metal act CRUMBSUCKERS will be reuniting for a special show to mark the 20th anniversary of their classic "Life of Dreams" release. Original members Chris Notaro (vocals), Chuck Lenihan (guitar; GENITORTURERS), Gary Meskil (bass; PRO-PAIN) and Dan Richardson (drums; LIFE OF AGONY, PRO-PAIN, STEREOMUD) will be accompanied by an as-yet-undetermined second guitarist for a reunion concert in New York City this summer.

"Over the past week, I have been in close contact with my old bandmates via phone and e-mail," Meskil confirmed. "I'm happy to say that all are optimistic and xcited about a CRUMBSUCKERS reunion."

"At this point we are still in the early planning stages, but we intend to play a special 'Life Of Dreams' 20th anniversary reunion concert in NYC this summer (date and venue to be announced), which will certainly be a lot of fun."

CRUMBSUCKERS released two full-length albums through the Combat label — 1986's "Life of Dreams" and 1988's "Beast On My Back" — before finally calling it a day in the early 90's. Several members embarked on a melodic metal venture called HEAVY RAIN, but that band was short-lived. The rhythm section of Meskil and Richardson went on to PRO-PAIN, while Chuck Lenihan ended up with GENITORTURERS.

They only came out with 2 albums but it was really good. This isn't gonna help me being that it will be in New York but it is good news anyway. Plus combat was a great label back in the day. Maybe they will colaborate and put another album together. Thanks DB!
