Founding Members of Christian Death To Perform As CD1334

Founding members of the seminal Goth/Punk band CHRISTIAN DEATH, under the name CD1334, will be performing the landmark first album ONLY THEATRE OF PAIN at the SHOCK-N-ROLL SPOOKTACULAR, part of the FANGORIA WEEKEND OF HORRORS Friday May 18 at the Burbank Airport Marriott Hotel at 9PM. The show will be an all ages event with a bar for the over 21 crowd.

2007 marks the 25th anniversary of the ONLY THEATRE OF PAIN album and founding members George Belanger, James McGearty and Rikk Agnew wanted to do something special for the occasion. Since singer Rozz Willaims had sadly passed away , the band enlisted Williams’ ex-wife Eva O. to sing the songs and added guitarist Jaime Pina and keyboardist Le Rue De Lashay to flesh out the sound while appearing under the new name CD 1334. Belanger had to drop out due to family matters and former Williams’ associate Christian Omar Madrigal Izzo was brought in on drums.

Frontier Records has pressed a limited silver anniversary edition of the vinyl that will only be available when the band plays this year. The band’s performance at the Henry Fonda Theatre last month was a highly emotional event with people flying in from all over the world to experience the original members re-creating the magik of what a CHRISTIAN DEATH concert was like while pushing it into a new era. The band will be performing the album in its entirety as well as the songs from Hell Comes To Your House and the Deathwish e.p. as well a new song titled “Rites”.
