Old Christian Death Lineup Reunites For Show Under New Moniker

Surving members from CHRISTIAN DEATH's landmark ONLY THEATRE OF PAIN album have reunited as CHRISTIAN DEATH 1334 and will be performing the album in its entirety at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, California on Friday the 13th of April 2007. The new line-up includes OTOP participants guitarist Rikk Agnew (Adolescents, D.I.), bassist James McGearty and providing the vocals will be the late singer Rozz Williams' ex-wife and musical partner Eva O. (Superheroines, Shadow Project). On drums will be Christian Omar Madrigal Izzo (Chokebore, Daucus Karota) who played on the CHRISTIAN DEATH album PATH OF SORROWS and new members Jaime Pina (45 Grave, Punk Rock Vatos) on guitar and Le' rue Delashay on keyboards.

The band has added the the 1334 to the name in order to make the distinction that this band is carrying on the legacy created by the original band and 1334 was Rozz Williams' signature number. The performance is to celebrate the 25th anniversary of OTOP and to introduce the public to the new line-up. They are already working on new songs and will begin recording a new album later in the year. The album's label, Frontier will press a special limited edition clear vinyl version of the album that will only be avaiable at the concert. The band will be doing a signing after the performance. There will also be a special digipak CD edition available from Seventeen Records in Europe.

One part of me really wants to see this - another part does not want to hear Eva O performing Rozz's songs. Rozz was inimitable - whether it's Valor ripping him off or Eva O filling in, neither will ever compare. At least Eva didn't screw him over and ruin his life - she was with him til the end.
