KICKED IN THE TEETH ON A HELLBENDER
When the Schorem barbers and a bunch of our friends compiled lists of bands we wanted at the baptism of Scumbash in 2013, the name Zeke came up the most. But damn, the Seattle speed kings hadn’t been in Europe for almost a decade and didn’t seem to have plans in that direction anymore. Hell, for ten years in a row Peter Pan Speedrock tried to bring Zeke over for Speedfest, to no avail.
Lo and behold, in 2017 Zeke finally will burn more jet fuel and land in Europe again. Frontman Blind Marky Felchtone gave the band an overhaul and now they’re ready to kick us in the teeth two times. ScumBash has the honor to host Zeke’s first show on the Old Continent in a dozen years. In July our friends of Sjock festival in Belgium will give you another chance to Ride with Zeke.
The Lords of the Highway also returned to the studio to record a new album with super sound conjurer Jack Endino. The title is Hellbender and it’s due for a release early next year on Relapse Records. Get in gear for this, ‘cause Zeke’s bludgeoning punk rock & roll is tantamount to tractor pulling and drag racing. Zeke you Til' The Livin' End!
