While STAR WARS Day is officially over, a lot of people like to carry things into May 5th each year by switching "May the Fourth Be With You" into "Revenge of the Fifth," so let's roll with that for a second. My boys from PRODUCT OF HATE (NAPALM Records) recently wrapped their first North American Tour, which found them on the road with ALLEGAEON (Metal Blade). Since the tour wrapped, ALLEGAEON guitarist Greg Burgess has been posting some pretty impressive one-take videos on Facebook, and yesterday's found him celebrating STAR WARS Day with a full suite of John Williams' famous score pieces performed on classical acoustic guitar. There's the "STAR WARS Main Title (Theme)," "Binary Sunset," "Cantina Band," "Imperial March," "Parade of the Ewoks," and the "Throne Room/End Title" in there. Check it out..
This week, NAPALM Records has unleashed the first-ever lyric video from Wisconsin's PRODUCT OF HATE. The first taste of the band's forthcoming debut album, BURIED IN VIOLENCE, which will be released this summer, "...As Your Kingdom Falls" made its debut on REVOLVER Magazine's site yesterday, and has been making waves around the metal press today. As many of you know, my connection to PRODUCT OF HATE is a unique one in that I not only co-manage the band... but edited the new lyric video personally. Hope you dig it!
PRODUCT OF HATE is hitting the road this week for our first-ever North American Tour in support of our forthcoming debut album for NAPALM Records (due out Summer 2015).
What's the best news I'm gonna share here on THE ROCK FATHER today? It's that ALLEGAEON have announced the "Get Rekt" Tour, and in addition to including THE AGONIST on select dates, my boys, PRODUCT OF HATE (PoH) will be along for nearly the entire run. As some of you may know, in addition to running this website, I do have some other irons in the fire, one of which is serving as Co-Manager for PRODUCT OF HATE - my dear friends, who I've known since 2009 and have been working with since 2010. PRODUCT OF HATE will be touring in support of their debut album for NAPALM Records, which is currently being mixed by James Murphy (TESTAMENT, DEATH, OBITUARY) at SafeHouse Production in Florida. While a release date has not yet been set, you can check out the band doing what they do best when they roll through town with their brothers and sisters from ALLEGAEON and THE AGONIST. First-round dates below with more to-be-announced...
