Recent rehearsal photos of the reunited GRAVEYARD RODEO have been posted at NolaUnderground.com.
GRAVEYARD RODEO is scheduled to perform at the "Raise The Dead Festival II" this Friday, October 19 at The Howlin' Wolf in New Orleans, Louisiana. Also scheduled to appear are CHOKE, RED ARMY and PAIN TRIBE. Tickets are $13 at the door.
GRAVEYARD RODEO once featured C.O.C. / DOWN guitarist Pepper Keenan in its ranks. The band made several demos throughout the 1980s that featured songs like "I Wanna Rot" and "Cell XIII / Paradise Lost". But it wasn't until 1992 that German record label Century Media picked up the band and they re-recorded most of their earlier songs for their 1993 debut entitled "Sowing Discord In The Hants Of Man". They toured Europe and then came back to New Orleans to implode. Original bassist Tommy Scanlan and guitarist Gary Gennaro forged on and secured another lineup to record a follow-up in 1994 entitled "On The Verge", then they disbanded. Rumors of a possible reunion started to surface in 2004, then fizzled shortly thereafter, but this time they say it's really going to happen. "It is time for the world to know what this band was all about," says Gennaro. "We have all grown and matured and have put all of our past bullshit behind us. We promise that you won't be disappointed." The group's current lineup also features Perry McCauley on vocals, Tommy Mesculine on bass and legendary drummer Wayne "Doobie" Fabra.
