Here’s a blast from the past: Mordred.
The San Francisco Bay Area funk metal act who’ve been dormant for decades are returning for a U.K. tour this August.
The band’s also launched an Indiegogo campaign seeking funds for the trek, as well as a reunion EP.
Mordred also would like to reissue the band’s catalog, including making the “In This Live” video available as a DVD/digital download.
Says the band:
“It’s been a while… but we just jammed together in San Francisco over the summer and had an awesome time! We heard there was still a following for us; we had no idea! So we got the idea from a friend why not have some fun and tour again? Play for all our friends and fans old and new, and maybe even write some new songs. Of course, we’ll be getting paid from the gigs and stuff we sell on the summer U.K. tour, but we need money now for things like promotion, paying someone to help us book this thing, merchandise up-front costs, 6 plane tickets, 6 visas, transportation, fuel, living accommodations the list goes on and on and on.
“Help the Bastard Son of Heavy Metal tour again; every bit helps! See you soon!!!”
