CRUMBSUCKERS Tap PRO-PAIN Guitarist TOM KLIMCHUCK For Reunion Show

Legendary New York hardcore/metal act CRUMBSUCKERS have recruited PRO-PAIN's Tom Klimchuck to play second guitar at their their much-anticipated reunion show on August 3 at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in New York City to mark the 20th anniversary of their classic "Life of Dreams" release, informed sources have told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. Klimchuck will be joining original members Chris Notaro (vocals), Chuck Lenihan (guitar; GENITORTURERS), Gary Meskil (bass; PRO-PAIN) and Dan Richardson (drums; LIFE OF AGONY, PRO-PAIN, STEREOMUD) at the concert, which will feature support from SUBZERO, IRONBOUND NYC (featuring members of SICK OF IT ALL, KILLING TIME, MAXIMUM PENALTY, STRAIGHT AHEAD and NAUSEA) and CAR BOMB.

CRUMBSUCKERS released two full-length albums through the Combat label — 1986's "Life of Dreams" and 1988's "Beast On My Back" — before finally calling it a day in the early Nineties. Several members embarked on a melodic metal venture called HEAVY RAIN, but that band was short-lived. The rhythm section of Meskil and Richardson went on to PRO-PAIN, while Chuck Lenihan ended up with GENITORTURERS.
