Merry Christmas from Dog Shredder

Alright. Let's start this off right.  Chickenfoot is/may be the worst band to ever get drunk and decide to Jam out a debut album on custom made instruments emblazoned with their logo before Sammy Hagar can even say "Hey!", but I find myself strangely drawn to them.  I want to hate them so, so much. But they're not too different from a band like Tight Bros, right?  They're both kinda going for the Dudes About To Rock vibe and are clearly in on the camp of their product.  Difference is that Chickenfoot makes hella dough while doing it and may not be quite as in on the joke as everybody else is. Some serious brass, though. Anyway. You should check it out. Discuss.

I feel like these videos highlight both the vast similarities and vast differences (read budget).

Holy shit balls Halloween was awesome this year. Like a trooper I went and saw Judas Priest on their "farewell" world tour all by myself. I was expecting to see far more freaks than I actually saw at the show. The closest I came was a dude decked out in a PERFECT Ace Frehley costume and some dude dressed up like Keith Stone.

*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:

Here's a video somebody shot of the show:

Check out Full Frontal assault here.
And mos def check out Leatherhorn here.

More exciting Dog Shredder news coming before years end. New tunes and tours are on their way...

Nude Delirium Awareness Day

First off we would like to thank whoever smashed the driver-side window of our van a few weeks ago and stole our really crappy CD player. It was purchased at Wal-Mart for $54 and properly installed by our main man JD after I had completely botched the self instilation by cutting every wire behind the damn thing. As a result, the CD player did not receive AM/FM transmissions, would occasionally shoot sparks out the front of it, and blow the fuse for our tail lights every time we turned on the headlights while jamming tunes. So, thanks again for not stealing anything else, and enjoy the bastard.

Anyway, here's a picture of Me and Lord Dosnok with Melt Banana at Chop Suey a couple of weeks ago:

So Awesome!!

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!


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.

Summer / Fall Update

Alright we're back.  We took a little break but we have a bunch of wicked shows lined up in September and October.  We've got dates with MELT BANANA and KYLESA, we've got the Boss Rhino 12" EP out and available through Made In China Records, we hopefully have a record coming out this year, and maybe even have some coastal and international shredding in 2012. Check the dates to the right, kimosabe.

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!

New Tour Dates With Federation X

We're pretty happy about supporting NW sludg-ends Federation X on one of their now-more-frequent-than-ever reunion stints in the NW on July 21-24. We love those guys, we love that band, and so should you.  Check em out:

Seattle/Portland 2011

Our 2011 tour is in full free-ballin' mode.  We played our 69th and 70th show in Seattle and Portland proper to great crowds and with great people.  The Comet never fails to deliver for us.  I ate two (2) Comet Dogs - a new record - under the advisement of Noah that I only eat 1.  Pish. Just a break down: A Comet Dog is like a huge kielbasa one might buy at Costco on a bun and slathered in sour cream and caramelized onions with jalapenos, sauerkraut and sriracha and served by a dude like this:

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!

The YouTubey Evolution of "Dog Shredder"

Here in the 23rd century, anyone with a cell phone and a YouTube machine can post anything online and the people - well, the people - the people will watch it.  And they should!  It could be your cat puking from a tire swing - Hilarious!  Or, it could be this - WOW!  Or it could be some wannabe Johnny Knoxville walking into a Planned Parenthood posing as a pimp and then - BOOM!  No more free condoms on MY dime, assholes!

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.

Boss Rhino EP 12-inch single hits the streets on Friday!

And it's gonna be SO ballin'!  We pressed a limited 500 copies of this motherfucker and there will be an even MORE limited run of only 100 copies with a hand-numbered, 7-layer silk screened gatefold cover designed and printed by our main man John Overly.  Available only while supplies last, punky!  Get there!  Here's a peek:

New Wax for that Ass!

Hello all, (no one.)
We got our new wax. Test pressings. I'm listening to it wayyy too loud at 2 AM.
Sounds good.
You sound good.

Russian tea cakes sound good.

Today in Official Endorsements:

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.

So in related/unrelated Dog Shredder news:

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:

Stay classy!
