Jo Schüftan of Horns Up Rocks! conducted an interview with EYEHATEGOD guitarist Jimmy Bower, who is also the drummer of DOWN, on November 27 after EYEHATEGOD‘s show in New York City. You can now watch the chat below.
Between touring in EYEHATEGOD and their numerous affiliated projects, the band has been slowly stacking up new demo material to put towards an upcoming album. You may have heard a few songs in the band’s live set as of late, including the recent staple “New Orleans Is The New Vietnam”, which made its recorded debut via a seven-inch release on A389 Recordings.
EYEHATEGOD released an official live DVD in March 2011 via MVD. Simply titled “Live”, the 88-minute production features multi-camera footage from 2009 (Baltimore, Maryland) and 2010 (Cleveland, Ohio), with bonus clips from the last show of their 2010 European tour and videos never before released on DVD.
Since forming in 1988, EYEHATEGOD has defied all odds and continues to exist and persist despite personal and professional setbacks. They’ve been called doomcore, sludge and stoner rock, survived line-up shuffles, label hassles and a short-lived split. And after more than two decades of creating some of the most corrosive, vile music known to man, EYEHATEGOD still hasn’t lost the piss and vinegar that fueled it back in ’88.
