The Red Chord, Trap Them, and Gaza played The School of Rock in South Hackensack, NJ on Friday (3/11) on the road to SXSW where each band will play a BV event, Trap Them & The Red Chord play Full Metal Texas on 3/17 and Gaza are playing Lovejoys on 3/18 with Ringworm, Wormrot, Magrudergrind, many others. Pictures from the NJ show are in this post

Also on 3/11, but on the other side of the U.S., another participant in Full Metal Texas, Kvelertak, made it into the country and played their first US show at Thee Parkside in San Francisco, CA. Pictures of them and tourmates Zoroaster (unfortunately none of Weedeater) are below.

As you can see in the pictures below, founding bassist Brent of Zoroaster is not on board as part of the current trek. Creative Loafing has more on his absence:

In February, stoner metal stalwarts Zoroaster announced that they were embarking on U.S. and European tours without bassist and founding member Brent Anderson. Although no one involved will divulge any details surrounding the temporary split, it’s being characterized by the band as a case of tough love. “The future of Brent and Zoroaster is up to him,” drummer Dan Scanlan says. “We felt that he needed to take some time to get his personal affairs in order.”

Scanlan adds that Anderson has not been kicked out of the band, but his reinstatement depends on how things look for him when the group’s schedule slows down in June.

In the meantime, Scanlan and guitarist Will Fiore have recruited Whores’ drummer Travis Owen to fill in playing bass on the road.

Speaking of Full Metal Texas, we’re happy to announce that Fireball Whisky is on board as a sponsor (free drinks). Another FMT sponsor, March is Metal Month, is giving away a downloadable comp from bands like Wormrot, Hour of 13, Deicide & others, and while you’re there check out some records that are currently on sale as part of March is Metal Month.

Trap Them’s smashing new LP, Darker Handcraft, is out now via Prosthetic. Stream the entire thingon NPR.
