GOATWHORE Bassist JAMES HARVEY's Sewing Needle-Impacted Thigh

According to Dave Wedge of the LimeWire Music Blog, GOATWHORE bassist James Harvey played with his bandmates at the August 24, 2010 stop of Ozzy Osbourne's travelling festival, Ozzfest, in Mansfield, Masachusetts with a massive hematoma on his leg (see gruesome photo below) inflicted by a sewing needle. "Apparently, [James] had a needle in his pocket for some unknown reason during a show last week and rammed it deep into his thigh while playing," Wedge writes in his review of the show. "He went to the hospital where doctors dug a hole in his leg in a failed attempt to find and remove the metal shard, he told LimeWire Music Blog."

As previously reported, GOATWHORE was forced to cancel its appearance at the August 21 Ozzfest in Hartford, Connecticut due to a "medical emergency" involving Harvey.

GOATWHORE's latest album, "Carving Out The Eyes Of God", sold around 2,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 190. The CD landed at No. 67 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

"Carving Out The Eyes of God" was released in the U.S. on June 23, 2009 via Metal Blade Records.

For the follow-up to 2006's "A Haunting Curse", GOATWHORE headed back to St. Petersburg, Florida to record with producer Erik Rutan at Mana Recording Studios, with mastering being handled by Alan Douches of West West Side.
