Following the tragic death of EYEHATEGOD drummer Joey LaCaze, legendary Melvins basher, Dale Crover, recently volunteered to seize the drum stool for the band’s scheduled set at the inaugural Housecore Horror Film Fest later this month.
Said the band in a collective statement: “With the recent passing of our longtime friend and drummer, Joey LaCaze, there’s no way to pay him a better tribute than EYEHATEGOD performing alongside one of his main influences and favorite musicians!”
EYEHATEGOD will level Housecore with Crover on October 27th at Emo’s in Austin alongside Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Goblin and more.
The band has also booked an additional handful of live takeovers following the fest including a special Halloween show at the fabled House of Shock in Jefferson, Louisiana. The drummer for those dates will be announced in the coming weeks. Confirmed dates are included below.
