DON SLATER

“You just look to the old Pork Chop Express and take his advice on a dark and stormy night, alright? When some wild-eyed eight foot tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head against a bar room wall, looks you crooked in the eyes and asks if you’ve paid your dues? […]

The second Knotfest was announced over the weekend. Sorry I am just letting you all know now. I was at my parents’ place trying to fucking relax, and did not touch my laptop the entire time. Now, I’m home, burnt by the sun, and excited for those of you who live out in San Bernardino, […]

Jamey Jasta To Open For The Misfits

Jamey Jasta

Remember when Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed released a solo album? It was a few years back, if I recall correctly, and the reception was rather lukewarm to the music, if I’m not mistaken.
