Not unlike GWAR, members of Cleveland-based electro-industrial-monster-metal band Mushroomhead lurk behind frightening costumes and junior-high-worthy pseudonyms (Jeffrey Nothing, Skinny, Gravy, and Pig Benis to name a few).
On October 5, 2015, vocalist Waylon Reavis announced via his Facebook page that he had parted ways with Mushroomhead, citing “irreconcilable differences with band ownership” and stating he had “severed all ties with Mushroomhead and Filthy Hands Company.” Two months ago, it was announced that vocalist and founding member Jeffrey “Nothing” Hatrix had parted ways with the band. Two days later, guitarist Tommy Church announced that he had also quit the band.
With new members at the helm and a genre that hasn’t been popular for a long while (except in places like San Antonio, we guess,) time will tell how long these dudes continue to release records and tour.
$17, Sat May 12, 7pm, The Rock Box, 1223 E. Houston St., (210) 677-9453, therockboxsa.com.
