The Bastard Noise dedicating NYC shows to Lee Altomare – Cake Shop, a Brooklyn show (?) & other 2010 tour dates
The Bastard Noise at MHOW (more by Lori Baily)
As previously discussed, The Bastard Noise are playing a NYC show at Cake Shop with Anal Cunt on June 26th as part of a June campaign following their appearance at Chaos in Tejas. As also previously mentioned, a second NYC date seems to be scheduled for June 28th. No venue announced yet for that, and no word yet on what the band's live lineup will be on the east coast, though Chaos In Tejas's lineup is confirmed to be Wood, Connell and Nelson.
The NYC shows are dedicated to Lee Altomare, who recently passed on after complications during surgery, and whose band The Communion are scheduled to open both of them:
WE ARE DEDICATING OUR NEW YORK CITY SHOWS IN JUNE TO OUR FALLEN BROTHER LEE ALTOMARE(R.I.P.)AND HIS BAND THE COMMUNION - WE REALIZE HIS DEAR FAMILY AND BANDMATES ARE DEALING WITH THE UNTHINKABLE AS WE ALL ARE. FOR ME(WOOD), LEE WAS A TRUE BROTHER AND REAL SUPPORTER AND SO PASSIONATE ABOUT MUSIC AND LIFE IN GENERAL. HE MADE ME FEEL LIKE I HAD KNOW HIM ALL MY LIFE AFTER ONLY KNOWING HIM DAYS. BROTHER, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MISSED AND NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. CONNELL/NELSON/WOOD - THE BASTARD NOISE
The future of the Communion is still unknown, though all dates are still listed at their MySpace.
As previously discussed, the alter ego of The Bastard Noise, Man Is The Bastard, have unearthed unreleased tracks intended for releases with Spazz and Despise You from twelve years ago.
