Joey with Eyehategod at Europa, June 2010 (more by Samantha Marble)
Eyehategod

Eyehategod have issued a statement regarding the passing of drummer Joey LaCaze:

Joseph M. LaCaze, New Orleans native and drummer for EyeHateGod, Mystick Krewe of Clearlight and Outlaw Order passed away on Aug. 23rd in New Orleans after a very successful five week UK and European tour w/ EHG.

He also performed ceremonial voodoo drumming and in numerous solo experimental electronic projects.

Doctors confirmed to family members the cause as respiratory failure. He also suffered from severe long term asthma.

An account is set up for the benefit of his daughter Lilith LaCaze. Checks can be made payable to the Lilith LaCaze or Joseph LaCaze donation fund at any Capital One Bank in any city.

So far the band has not commented on the status of the 25th Anniversary shows in the US, but we'd imagine it would be very tough to replace such a solid drummer on this short of notice.

Our heart goes out to the Eyehategod families and especially LaCaze's family.

yeah, I hate when I show people live EHG videos and they just think it's terrible because they don't get the point of the feedback.

Because people don't like music/art/entertainment you have make an effort for to appreciate it. If it's not easy-listening, it ain't good. Simple as that.
