O'Death To Tour: Casbah November 23

I promised to post more press releases, and this one is a good place to start. O'Death returns to San Diego, playing at the Casbah on November 23.

"The result is a polygamous marriage of the Violent Femmes on meth, Gogol Bordello on fatback and the bastard lovechild of a Charlie Daniels Band-Japonize Elephants-Metallica three-way. And while polygamy might be illegal in most states, this marriage works." -- New York Press

Brooklyn, NY shanty heroes O'Death are proud to announced their new National Fall tour dates. Their live show that is quite simply unforgettable and sure to bring out the agro-primal oompah-pah spirit in you.

Their third LP, Broken Hymns, Limbs and Skin, (out October 28th) feels like a giddy junkyard hoedown, from the panicked fiddle screeches of opener “Low Tide” to the celebratory gallop of closer “Lean-To.” At times it sounds morose or contemplative, but underneath the melancholy is a gospel fervor—bashed from paint buckets, banjos, guitars and anything else in kicking distance—that defines their sound. The quintet, which contains vocalist/guitarist Greg Jamie, vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Gabe Darling, fiddle player Bob Pycior, bassist Newman and drummer David Rogers-Berry, has evolved the possessed americana-meets-gypsy-punk of recent years into a more urgent, unrelenting celebration of life, death and everything in between.

Is it even legal for me to directly publish a press release? I'll have to look into it. In the meantime, get your tickets for this show online at the Casbah's site.
