Reunited Texan thrashers RIGOR MORTIS have re-launched their official web site at www.rigormortis.com.The group's bassist/vocalist Casey Orr, who has spent the past few weeks playing with the reunited SPEEDEALER, has posted the following update on the band's activities: "A lot has been happening since this site went down for reconstructive surgery, so I'll cut to the chase. "[Guitarist] Mike [Scaccia], [drummer] Harden [Harrison], and I got together in January 2003 and started jamming together and discussing the possibility of putting RIGOR MORTIS back together. Before that could happen, Mike was called back into active duty with MINISTRY for some extensive touring. Meanwhile Harden's band, SPEEDEALER, has reactivated and is working on a new album to be produced by Jeff Pincus of BUTTHOLE SURFERS fame. I will be playing bass for SPEEDEALER on the new record and through a June/July east coast tour. At that point, SPEEDEALER should have a permanent bassist in place, and I will be back full time playing with THE BURDEN BROTHERS. Also, my punk band, THE HELLIONS, will be reuniting to play a show June 2nd with BLACK FLAG. You can find a listing of all our activities on each respective webpage. "As for RIGOR MORTIS, we hope to find time to work on some new material and eventually put out a new record sometime before Hell freezes over! In the meantime we have the re-issue of the first record available and new shirts coming soon. I hope you enjoy the site and keep checking back for updates, etc."
