Danzig at Riot Fest in 2013 (more by Kirstie Shanley)
Samhain now have a guitarist and a solidified lineup for their upcoming run of 30 Bloody Years dates. First, the addition: Peter Adams of Baroness. Says Peter, "I'm truly excited, It's a great honor to share the stage with Samhain on the 30th Anniversary of Initium! Samhain has helped shape how I've played music, and the music I've listened to, since I was a teenager and will continue to, on into the future. To be a part of this legacy is great beyond words!" The rest of the group is rounded out by Danzig Legacy players London May and Steve Zing. (Yep, no Eerie Von. Maybe next reunion.) And, you know, Glenn Danzig will be there. Samhain is set to play Riot Fest, Housecore Horror Fest, and Samhain Night at NYC's Best Buy Theater among other dates.
In related news (and mentioning them here might be the only way to get the two together besides a lawsuit), the Misfits have been added to GWAR-B-Q. They'll be joined by Jello Biafra, the other recent add to an expanded lineup that includes Hatebreed, Body Count, Revocation, Iron Reagan, Goatwhore, Noisem, and more. You can find the updated bill below. GWAR-B-Q will kick off on August 16 at Richmond, Virginia's Hadad's Lake.
