David Pajo Tours With Metal Band, Releases Split Single
Former Slint/Zwan/Tortoise/For Carnation guitarist and current solo artist David Pajo is heading out on tour with Dead Child, his metal band consisting of fellow Louisville, KY post-rockers Michael McMahan (For Carnation, Slint's 2005 touring band), Todd Cook (For Carnation, Slint's 2005 touring band, Papa M, Crain), Tony Bailey (Papa M, Crain) and "Dahm" (the vocalist, of course). Dead Child formed after last year's Slint reunion tour and takes as its influences "early Metallica, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest."
In addition to the tour, Dead Child are planning the release of their debut EP on Cold Sweat Records. Details are vague since the only real evidence of the EP's existence is on the band's website and MySpace page, but if you can't stand the wait until whenever that comes out, their entire first show is available for download here.
Pajo will also release a split single under his surname with the Swedish band Audrey, featuring two tracks from Pajo and two tracks from Audrey's debut, Visible Forms. Stereo Test Kit Records released the single in the UK today, October 23.
