Hammers of Misfortune

Bay Area metal staples and two sides of the John Cobbett coin, prog-power-metal gods Hammers of Misfortune and blackened killers Ludicra, are hitting the road in August. On the EAST COAST. That's right, the pair have lined up an East Coast tour in August including an NYC date, August 11th, at Santos Party House! Ticket info is forthcoming, as well as (we hear) more dates as well.

Hammers of Misfortune dropped their double LP, Fields / Church Of Broken Glass, via Profound Lore/20 Buck Spin in the tail end of 2008. Ludicra's last release was 2006's Fex Urbis, Lex Orbis on Jello Biafra's Alternative Tentacles imprint.

John Cobbett, formerly of Slough Feg, has also contributed to Amber Asylum. Ampber Asylum has a new LP and recently dropped a new MP3.
