No, I will not be at the Big Four at Yankee Stadium tonight. Yes, I am a bad New Yorker, but to be honest, I don’t even really care. I have seen all of those bands before. I don’t need to see them in The Bronx, together. Big Four? More like Big Snore.
Being from New York, I am proud of my heritage, and the fact that Suffocation are also from the Big Apple. Turns out our boys are actually hard at work on material for their new album, tentatively due next year through Nuclear Blast Records.
“With no shortage of chaotic mayhem and earth-shattering slams, the content and concepts are sure to please Suffocation fans new and old,” the band says in a statement. “Prepare to receive the mark!”
I went to see Suffocation at the Best Buy Theatre in New York once. Before the show, the dudes from the band were hanging out. The Goat and I were chatting with them.
I swear, during that conversation, at least three fans came up and slipped illicit drugs into one of the band members’ hands. Coke and weed, I think. I was amazed.
Free drugs? That’s why you join a fucking band, people.
