Byzantine Announces Three Local Reunion Shows

West Virginia thrash metal band Byzantine has begun plans for a weekend of reunion shows after a hiatus of over 2 years.

Vocalist/Rhythm Guitar Chris "OJ" Ojeda comments about their upcoming reunion, "2 and 1/2 years ago we put a sudden and abrupt halt to our musical careers under the name Byzantine. It was a really anti-climactic way to go out. We know a lot of fans and friends alike felt cheated that we didn't play any shows supporting our last album, 'Oblivion Beckons.' Now, we all feel like it's time to give a little something back, all guns blazing. Unfortunately, we are unable to tour since we live scattered across 3 states, have children and full time jobs, but we want to give our local fans something to remember us by."

The reunion show schedule is as follows:

03/5 - The Sound Factory, Charleston, WV
03/6 - The V Club, Huntington, WV
03/7 - 123 Pleasant Street, Morgantown, WV
