3 INCHES OF BLOOD TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM, “LONG LIVE HEAVY METAL” ON MARCH 27th

January 12th, 2012

Traditionalist metal gods 3 INCHES OF BLOOD will release their highly anticipated 5th studio album, Long Live Heavy Metal , on March 27th via Century Media Records.  Keeping true to their core and bringing their forthcoming album title to life, fans can expect a blast of pure metal assured to leave no face un-melted.  “LONG LIVE HEAVY METAL is the fifth chapter in the book of 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, and we couldn’t be more pleased and proud of our new onslaught of Honest Heavy Metal,” says guitarist Justin Hagberg.  For Long Live Heavy Metal, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD reunited with producer and engineer Terry “Sho” Murray (City of Fire, Exhibitionists), who worked with the band on their 7″, Anthems for the Victorious.

“When a band is releasing a new record, they often speak about it being their most important work or best album to date.  Regardless of how clichéd either statement may sound, I think we would say both apply to this album,” explains vocalist Cam Pipes. “All of us have a special feeling about this one.  We’re more committed than ever to the cause of real, honest, no bullshit heavy metal.  No trends, no fucking around!”

Beginning March 16th, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD will head out on the “Metal Alliance Tour 2012″ alongside DEVILDRIVER, THE FACELESS, DYING FETUS, JOB FOR A COWBOY, IMPENDING DOOM and WRETCHED.  A full list of dates can be seen below.

Bob Wayne and 3 inches of blood release 7″ Split

November 2nd, 2011
Outlaw country modernist BOB WAYNE and heavy metal outfit 3 INCHES OF BLOOD have released a split 7″.  The 7″, which is available today, includes BOB WAYNE’s “Everything’s Legal In Alabama” and a live version of “Call Of The Hammer” from 3 INCHES OF BLOOD featuring Ben Falgoust from GOATWHORE.  The split is available exclusively through CM Distro and can be purchased HERE.

3 INCHES OF BLOOD vocalist Cam Pipes commented on the release, “When asked if we wanted to do a split 7″ with Bob Wayne it was a pretty easy decision. We’ve never done a split 7″ before and Bob’s already a friend of ours, a good ol’ Pacific Northwestern boy.  We’ve also never released a live track before. We had recorded some shows in Vancouver last year, so we picked Call of the Hammer since Ben Falgoust from Goatwhore does guest vocals on it.  All around this is a special release for us.”

BOB WAYNE adds, “I’ve always had fun hangin with those guys [3 Inches Of Blood].  We’ve played a few shows together and I always go and see them live if they’re within 100 miles of me!  I’m a big fan so this is a huge honor.”

3 INCHES OF BLOOD TO PERFORM FOLLOWING “LLOYD THE CONQUEROR” MOVIE PREMIERE

September 15th, 2011
On Saturday, September 24th the film “Lloyd The Conqueror”, staring Mike Smith (Trailer Park Boys) and Brian Posehn, will premiere as part of the Calgary International Film Festival at the Globe Theatre at 7:00 PM.   Century Media’s 3 INCHES OF BLOOD has a cover of the classic Rush song,  “Anthem” featured in the film and directly following the premiere, will be performing at the official after party.  A sure sell out, the event begins at 9:00 PM at Dickens Pub. Tickets can be purchased here: www.primeboxoffice.com

About LLOYD THE CONQUEROR:

When perpetual slacker Lloyd (Evan Williams) and his two best friends ask their history professor, Derek (TRAILER PARK BOYS’ Mike Smith), for an extra-credit assignment, he challenges them to unseat him as the dread lord of his deteriorating LARPing (Live Action Role Playing) league. But this will be no simple grade-grab. Getting to Derek will mean battling a string of dedicated (and downright deranged) Demons & Dwarves players, including a pack of bloodthirsty Danes and a somewhat misplaced Vulcan.

Featuring a cast of cult-comic favourites including Brian Posehn, Harland Williams and FUBAR’s Andrew Sparacino (who also appears in A LEGEND OF WHITEY), and directed by Calgary’s Michael Peterson, LLOYD THE CONQUEROR is a no-holds-barred fantasy romp that casts a 12-sided eye on a much-misunderstood subculture. Whether you’re a die-hard D&D fan or a newbie to all things geek, get ready to be won over by Lloyd and his merry band of adventurers.

More information on the premiere can be seen here.

3 INCHES OF BLOOD WIN 2011 INDIE AWARD FOR “METAL ARTIST/GROUP OF THE YEAR”

March 14th, 2011
3 INCHES OF BLOOD

3 INCHES OF BLOOD

3 INCHES OF BLOOD are excited to announce that they have won the 2011 Indie award for “Metal Artist/Group Of The Year”. The 11th annual Indie Awards – or the “Grammys-of-the-Canadian-Indie-Scene” – took place on Saturday, March 12 at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto, marking the closing festivities of Canadian Music Week. Century Media, EMI Music Canada, and 3IOB’s entire Canadian team would like to congratulate the band on an incredible year!

 

3IOB vocalist Cam Pipes comments, “We’d like to thanks all our fans for voting for us. As a metal band, it’s nice to be recognized on a national scale. Congrats also to our friends in Cancer Bats who also picked up an Indie award the same night. Both bands winning sets up our upcoming tour together with a little extra notoriety.”

 

3 INCHES OF BLOOD will team up with fellow Canadians CANCER BATS for a cross- Canada run in May. Right before that they will hit the U.S. with SKELETONWITCH for a two week run through the Midwest and East coast, which will include a stop at New England Metal and Hardcore Festival in Worcester, MA on April 16th.

 

Born out of a love for pure metal, weaned on a diet of fantasy and mythology, Vancouver’s 3 INCHES OF BLOOD are one of the biggest defenders of traditional heavy metal and have been slaying the infidel for nearly a decade. In that time, they’ve released three albums and splattered the ground with crimson streaks while on tour with such acclaimed acts as Satyricon, The Black Dahlia Murder, Motorhead and Cradle of Filth, to name a few. The band’s latest album, the monumental Here Waits Thy Doom (September 8, 2009, Century Media) has set the standard for new heavy metal.

3 INCHES OF BLOOD Announce “WARRIORS OF THE GREAT WHITE NORTH” Tour

March 2nd, 2011

It’s the tour that Canadian metal fans have been waiting for.

3 Inches of Blood and Cancer Bats, two of Canada’s biggest, most brutal and unrelenting metal bands, will be embarking on a month-long Canadian trek in May, kicking things off in Brandon, MB on May 4 and wrapping up in Victoria, BC on May 29.

3IOB vocalist Cam Pipes states: “This is the kind of Canadian tour that we were meant to do. Cancer Bats are a like-minded band that we’ve talked about touring with for quite a while and we’re very glad it’s finally happening. Canada is a stronghold of metal fans that both bands step up their game for.  All the cards are in place to make this an epic tour.”

3 Inches of Blood fans can also look forward to a brand new EP which the band will release via Century Media Records, just in time for the upcoming May tour…more details coming soon.  In addition, the band has been nominated for a 2011 Indie award for “Metal Artist/Group Of The Year”. The 11th Annual Independent Music Awards – “The Indies” – is Canadian Music Week’s closing party, taking place on Saturday March 12, 2011 at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto.

Born out of a love for pure metal, weaned on a diet of fantasy and mythology, Vancouver’s 3 Inches of Blood are one of the biggest defenders of traditional heavy metal and have been slaying the infidel for nearly a decade.  In that time, they’ve released three albums and splattered the ground with crimson streaks while on tour with such acclaimed acts as Satyricon, The Black Dahlia Murder, Motorhead and Cradle of Filth, to name a few.  The band’s latest album, the monumental Here Waits Thy Doom (September 8, 2009, Century Media) has set the standard for new heavy metal.

3IOB just completed a hugely successful North American tour this February alongside Eluveitie, Holy Grail and System Divide.   The band is also gearing up for two performances at the 2011 Manitoba Metalfest, before hitting the road in May for what is sure to be one of Canada’s most memorable metal tours to date.

3 INCHES OF BLOOD Enters Studio; Prepares For Tour With Eluveitie

January 18th, 2011

3 INCHES OF BLOOD made a huge splash on the heavy metal community with the release of their last epic ‘Here Waits Thy Doom’, now the band is preparing for an exciting tour as direct support to ELUVEITIE, but before that gets started they will be making a quick pit stop into Shostroud Productions in Vancouver to record a couple of their new cuts with Sho Murray (City of Fire) and Byron Stroud (Strapping Young Lad, Fear Factory). One of the songs will be played live on the upcoming tour and will be making its way online soon. The band comments:

“It’s a great time for us to be touring North America again. We haven’t slugged it out in the US since Mayhem fest in summer 2010 and we’re always happy to play to our loyal Canadian brethren. Everyone in the 3IOB camp have been eagerly anticipating this tour. We’ve never toured with a band like Eluveitie before. Their fan base is probably more similar to ours than most other bands we’ve toured with in the past. The Holy Grail guys are always fun to hang out with and we’re curious to check out System Divide. We’re extra pumped for this tour because it will give us the opportunity to road-test a new song or two. Hope everyone digs the new jams.”
