Welcome back, kiddos. We're currently tearing it up with our latest release Brass Tactics and the critics unanimously agree: it's loud and weird as hell! And with a release so loud people are listening! Check out some praise below:
"Brass Tactics is the mark of an exhilarating new voice that's fun, ferocious, and ultimately exhausting in the most satisfying kind of way... proof that ambition and skill don't automatically cancel out heart."
"So good I can't stop laughing."
"Big 'ole minus points for the name."
Yeah, well, can't please em all. But go pick it up direct from Good To Die Records!!
Or download it digitally on the cheap over here.

*Please note that guitar stage right is not KK Downing but some 31-year-young hot shot completely shredding KK under the table. This dude was incredible, and from what I heard has had bottles thrown at him for the unforgivable sin of not being KK Downing on stage. He retired, guys. Ease off.
Then there was Ben Verellen from Helms Alee at his brother Dave's Halloween party. I'll just let the picture do the yelling:
Then DOG SHREDDER performed as Bellingham's premier Pantera tribute band, PANTERA LIVES! with Full Frontal Assault/Leatherhorn singer Jeff Kastelic. Serious blast was had. I would post the set list, but odds are we will do it again and I wouldn't want to spoil it for any fans of Pantera. So keep your eyes afixed to your Facefuck feed and wait with baited breath, yos.
Here we are:
Left to right: Rex "Rocker" Brown, Phil Anselmo, Vinnie Paul, and Dimebag Darrell

Anyway, here's a picture of Me and Lord Dosnok with Melt Banana at Chop Suey a couple of weeks ago:
And here are some crazy fuckers in my Kitchen after the Dog Shredder/White Orange/Mongoloid Village show on Friday 10/14:
Left to right: Mandar, JTN and Dave from Bongoloid Village, Carey Ross™, Dustin and Dean from White Orange, Fester from MV, and Peter. Thanks for drinking all the pink lemonade vodka!
THIS HALLOWEEN MONDAY 10/31 WE WILL BE APPEARING AT THE SHAKEDOWN AS PANTERA LIVES!
We're gonna have some friends join us on stage and perform all of the hits from your favorite confederate hick metal icons! Spoiler alert: Noah is Vinnie. Bring your own Jager!
Don't miss Vinnie's "rap" at 2:47
Finally here's a REALLY bad picture of me and Oderus from GWAR.

In related news, I've been touring all over with Hyro Da Hero, a pretty gifted rapper from Houston, TX. Playing with members of Failure, Pretty Girls Make Graves and Idiot Pilot. Having a blast. We shot this video in Britain a few months back. You'll see me playing Bass in the back. Dig!

And then there's Portland. Where the band gets wasted and does this in the middle of the night after I fall asleep:
And then we hugged Ben Kahn's butthole.
You can read a review of our show in PDX here.
Flip out with your tip out!

Anyhoo, I've noticed that our tune "Dog Shredder" is by far the most captured-then-YouTubed song in our set. Must be it's massive titular appeal. Here is the history of "Dog Shredder" in chronological order from the very first time we played it live to the last time we played it on Friday.

We are playing in Bellingham tonight with Bright Weapons ('ham), Grenades (Seattle), and of course, Helms Alee. Word has it they have fully recorded their new album. You had better get there early, punky!
Also our drummer, Lord Dosnok, has another band. Leatherhorn rips pretty hard. Here is their new demo:
And one of our oldest buddies Patrick "Ray Vaughn" Oiye and his homeboys in Smooth Sailing have a new album coming out. Here is a track from it and I think it sounds pretty sick. These guys are pretty good live, too, and their black-out light show takes us back to Seattle circa 2000. An era we are all fond of... *caugh*botch.

Our show at the Viking Union on Friday was our first in two months and it totally slayed. Big, sloppy, homo public thanks to Brent and Whats Up! Magazine for having us. As we get a little older it gets harder to connect with an under-aged crowd and we felt completely welcomed.
Also, haven't heard from Lord Dosnok in a while. Where you been, bro? No love for the Blog?
Anyhoo. Here's a picture of Noah and I rocking out at the end of Red Fang's set in Bellingham back in May.
Yup. That's us on the left.
And while I was looking for that photo on their blog I found these "comments" I certainly do not remember making:
And by BTW, this was the link I attached. I lose:

So this is gonna happen. Lozen, two of the coolest, hottest, smartest, sweetest and most talented people around, asked us to go on tour with them. For 10 days we'll be forced to stop peeing in gatorade bottles mid-drive and cozy up. Hozi and Juice are awesome. Listen to them here.

(Rendezvous) At the nexus of metal's harsh tonalities, punk's anti-aspirations, and indie's creative cross-pollinations, there exists a cluster of bands bashing against those realms' respective campy aesthetics, downgraded musicianship, and pop sensibilities. Tonight's a perfect opportunity to add to your diet a few different flavors from that peculiar cross section of unglued and unapologetically cerebral aggression. Have a healthy portion of Grenades' heavily syncopated rhythm section and spacey guitar leads, chew on Dog Shredder's frantic and furious seven-minute opuses, sample Sandrider's allegretto single-coil snarl, and finish things off with Smooth Sailing's tech-metal/post-rock hybrids. It's quite a combo platter. Stringent Headbangers Ball, Maximumrocknroll, or Pitchfork consumers, however, are bound to be unsatisfied.
