SLAYER Drummer's PHILM Confirmed For 'Slaughter By The Water' Festival
PHILM — the Los Angeles-based experimental post-hardcore triumvirate featuring drummer Dave Lombardo (SLAYER), guitarist/vocalist Gerry Nestler (CIVIL DEFIANCE), and bassist Pancho Tomaselli (WAR) — has been confirmed for the Slaughter By The Water festival, set to take place on August 25 aboard the decommissioned USS Hornet flight carrier docked in Alameda, California.
The festival billing is shaping up as follows:
FOG OF WAR
The USS Hornet, 893 feet long and 33,000 tons of metal, is nicknamed "The Grey Ghost in Alameda" and is said to be one of the most haunted warships in the American Navy, with numerous reports of supernatural events occurring onboard. She is also a "Rosie the Riveter" ship with thirty percent of her construction crew being women and she holds a couple Navy records: most planes shot down in a day (72) and most planes shot down in a month (255). The USS Hornet was also where San Francisco Bay Area thrashers EXODUS filmed the video for the song "War Is My Sheppard".
