Joey LaCaze

According to numerous reports out of New Orleans, Joey LaCaze, drummer of EYEHATEGOD, OUTLAW ORDER and TEN SUICIDES, has passed away. He was 42 years old and leaves behind a wife and a child. No further details are currently available.

EYEHATEGOD just completed a month-long tour of Europe (see our review here AND here) and was gearing up for a string of dates in celebration of its 25th anniversary.

It was recently announced that EYEHATEGOD would make an appearance at Philip Anselmo‘s first annual Housecore Horror Film Festival this fall in Austin, Texas.

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 the late Eighties.

Eyehategod – Kuudes Linja Helsinki Finland

August 17th, 2013

EYEHATEGOD

The7th of August 2013

Kuudes Linja Helsinki Finland

The southern sludge mongers have become regular visitors to Finland during the last few years. Their previous gig in  Helsinki has been described as one of the most extreme violent, brutal and even chaotic musical events witnessed in Helsinki for years. Therefore, expecting the sludge maelstrom and chaotic and relentless audience was nothing, but obvious. The Kuudes Linja club is extremely small to create and have the utter chaos and real intensive atmosphere. Read the rest of this entry »

Battling our way ever closer to the venue, passing cattle-like throngs of football fans recently purged from nearby Emirates Stadium, I silently utter thanks that I am not a fan of  ‘the so-called beautiful game.’ Then again, on reflection, perhaps these people have similar thoughts when they pass the line of gig going, black-clad metalheads all drunk and rowdy and drinking in the street… At least we’re queuing for something awesome! And tonight that is NOLA sludgemasters Eyehategod at The Highbury Garage…

EYEHATEGOD Announce Additional East Coast Dates

November 17th, 2011

Following the sonic devastation that was their performance at Fun Fun Fun Fest earlier this month, New Orleans’ hardcore, blues-based, post-amplification, dirge-doers EYEHATEGOD are set to head East this December to further their audio decimation. The band will level Boston, Allentown and Brooklyn beginning December 2.

Commented frontman Mike Williams on the next round of pummel: “Following an amazing dark and cloudy show at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun fest, America’s drunkest sweethearts will set off on yet another East Coast exploration and research field trip into the age old tradition of self-abuse.”

EYEHATEGOD Tour Dates 2011/2012

12/02/2011 Wonderland Ballroom (Formerly Club Lido) – Boston, MA

12/03/2011 Jimmy’s – Allentown, PA

12/04/2011 Europa – Brooklyn, NY w/ Doomriders, Hull, Knight Terror

01/21/2012 Sonar – Baltimore, MD w/ Integrity 9 (A389 Anniversary Show)

05/24/2012 Maryland Deathfest @ Sonar – Baltimore, MD

 

EYEHATEGOD unleashed their Live DVD earlier this year via MVD. The 88-minute production features multi-camera footage from 2009 (Baltimore, MD) and 2010 (Cleveland, OH), with bonus clips from the last show of their 2010 European tour and videos never before released before on DVD. Commented popular Canadian web portal Hellbound in a recent review of the film: “Trust EYEHATEGOD to put out a live DVD that looks like a fifth-generation VHS bootleg from 25 years ago. And bless ‘em for it. After all, the pure grit and amateurishness of the way the two live sets on Live are shot are far more appropriate for the New Orleans sludge legends than, say, a lavish light show, crane shots galore, and a five-channel surround mix. Nah, instead we’re privy to poorly lit, hand-held shots from various angles, most of which are right smack in the middle of the chaos the band is creating, and sound quality that’s muddy and distorted. It looks and sounds absolutely filthy, and it’s perfect.” Added Cvlt Nation simply: “…a piece of EYEHATEGOD cinematic history.” A perfect dose of Black Flag meets Black Sabbath in ragged, live glory. Order your copy HERE where you’ll also find a new selections of T-shirts and hoodies.

EYEHATEGOD: Retox And Nihilism Over Europe Tour 2011

June 17th, 2011

New Orleans derelicts, EYEHATEGOD — vocalist Mike Williams, guitarists Jimmy Bower and Brian Patton, bassist Gary Mader and drummer Joey LaCaze — will kick off their long-anticipated European summer tour tomorrow! Dubbed the Retox and Nihilism Over Europe Tour 2011, the debauchery will commence at Hellfest in Clisson, France and level 20 additional cities, before coming to a tumultuous close at the Rock Café in Tallinn, Estonia. The trek will include stops at the Kriston Festival in Spain, GSM Fest in Portugal, the Roskilde Festival in Denmark and the Stoned From The Underground Festival in Germany. EYEHATEGOD will be joined by Japanese doom brigade, Church Of Misery.

 

Said Mike Williams of the journey: “Breaking news to the bastard sons of all unemployed and dysfunctional tribes of homeless malcontents worldwide! Louisiana’s EYEHATEGOD have finally been granted a set of much-maligned overseas work visas today in an unprecedented governmental and congressional decision upheaval. EHG have been given legal permission to invade the European continent… and more. For tour dates, see below. The threat to rock ‘n’ roll, and music in general, is imminent. Kill your Facebook. Smash your Twitter. (R.I.P. Seth Putnam…).”

EYEHATEGOD Ready For Tomorrow’s Annual Mardi Gras Show

February 24th, 2011

Band Returns Safely From Their East Coast Tour; Mike Williams Comments On CT Cancellation The members of EYEHATEGOD arrived home from their latest East Coast run of dates earlier this week with varying degrees of injuries — mental, spiritual and physical. Dubbed the “Unchecking Our Already Questionable Health In A Shitty Van Tour 2011,” vocalist Mike Williams, guitarists Jimmy Bower and Brian Patton, bassist Gary Mader and drummer Joey LaCaze, kicked off the festivities in Philadelphia, PA on February 16th and systematically leveled clubs in Baltimore, Brooklyn, Syracuse and Boston before being forced to miss their show in Connecticut

Commented Williams of the cancellation: “Due to horribly bad weather, we had to cancel our Milford, Connecticut show on Monday in order to make it back down South. Many apologies to the true fans who came to the show disappointed. EYEHATEGOD are greedy, money pig bastards, so don’t think we passed up this gig for any other reason but shitty snow and ice.” Check out footage of the band playing a new tune at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia HERE

Bringing the festivities to a close, the proud brothers of New Orleans riff debauchery and feedback will play their annual Mardi Gras show tomorrow at Siberia with Phobia and Venomous Maximus.

EYEHATEGOD: Winter Tour Commences Today

November 30th, 2010

Legendary NOLA sludge collective EYEHATEGOD will kick off another stretch of tour dates in support of absolutely nothing tomorrow in Birmingham, Alabama at the Bottletree. From there the band will pillage their way through 13 more cities before heading back home in time for holiday hedonism. Supporting the band in the pandemonium will be Phobia, as well as Crowbar, Goatwhore and Zoroaster on select dates [see listing below].   Commented vocalist Mike Williams: “EYEHATEGOD are excited to head out on this next USA trek and ready to do damage. EHG tours are one of a kind; each unique with its own abusive, miserable, broken features. Miss them now and maybe miss them forever…”    Added drummer Joey LaCaze: “The band is probably the tightest its ever been and different, more obscure songs have been added to the traditional set of all-time favorites. Get in the right frame of mind and vent all of your holiday frustrations.”

EYEHATEGOD: U.S. Winter Tour Announced

November 9th, 2010

New Orleans-based, doomed-out, punk/blues/southern rock hardcore freaks, EYEHATEGOD, will head out on another American trek this December in support of absolutely nothing but the glory of hedonism and debauchery. EHG are the originators of a genre now known as “sludge,” a combination of raw, sick vocals and slow, heavy, down-tuned, grooving negative riffs that run together in a live setting in a sometimes volatile mess of guitar feedback, pounding drums, cigarettes, beer, vodka and hurt feelings. See the band in the following cities before they self-destruct:   EYEHATEGOD Winter Tour 2010 w/ Phobia

11/30/2010 Bottletree – Birmingham, AL

12/01/2010 Hideaway – Johnson City, TN
