Canadian stoner metallers BISON B.C., who were scheduled to play a special one-off show at Seattle, Washington's El Corazon this past weekend with sludge heathens EYEHATEGOD, were unable to cross the border and thus did not play the gig.
Comments BISON B.C. guitarist/vocalist James Farwell of the ordeal: "Due to our vicious plot to undermine the American economy and to destroy the citizens of the United States of America's belief in freedom and baseball or whatever, we weren't allowed to cross that fascinating imaginary line. More likely due to a fucking clerical error somewhere in corporate America, the fine people at Homeland Security had no choice but to keep Americans secure from us dirty fucking Canadians. But fear not, my fellow poser Canadians, we will get our fucking paper work in order soon enough and be down destroying things before you can say, 'Does Celine Dion shit in the fucking woods?!,' — and yes indeed she does."
In other news, BISON B.C. is currently in the studio penning the follow-up to its critically acclaimed "Dark Ages" full-length, which made its way on to a host of year-end lists including Revolver magazine's Top 20 of 2010 where the band was commended for releasing, "the best meat-and-potatoes stoner-metal record this year."
"Dark Ages" was released in April 2010 via Metal Blade Records. The CD was recorded by Jesse Gander, who also recorded 2008's "Quiet Earth", at The Hive Creative Labs in Burnaby, British Columbia and was mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (CONVERGE, HATEBREED, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN) in New Windsor, New York.
