Doomriders (Converge, etc.) join Deathwish lineup
Doomriders have officially joined the Deathwish Inc. roster. The group features Nate Newton (Converge), Jebb Riley (There Were Wires), Chris Pupecki (Cast Iron Hike), and Chris Bevalaqua (Hallraker) and the label describes them this way: "[This] wall of sound is the bastard child of Classic Rock, Death N' Roll and raging Skate Rock. With a majority of their songs Skate-inspired, they push forth with a heaviness that brings to mind later era Entombed and Integrity, while their raw punk bursts conjure memories of the legendary JFA." You can listen to one of their MP3s here. The band will enter Godcity Studios with Kurt Ballou this winter to record their Deathwish debut, which should hit stores in early-2005.
