Screeching Weasel
Screeching Weasel
Formed in 1986 by acerbic front man Ben Weasel, Screeching Weasel immediately set out to provoke. In their early days the band was known as much for Weasel's on-stage diatribes and battles with audience members as their music, but with the release of 1991's My Brain Hurts they helped to usher in the pop-punk explosion, and have remained at the forefront of the genre ever since. In a career punctuated by internal friction and break-ups, to say nothing of their run-ins with promoters, label owners, other musicians and the press, Screeching Weasel has inspired countless bands with their infectious, hook-laden songs; Blink-182 and the All-American Rejects cite Screeching Weasel as an influence and Green Day's Mike Dirnt (who played on the band's 1994 How To Make Enemies And Irritate People) sports a Weasel head tattoo on his arm.

Ben Weasel, the only remaining original member and the only constant amidst dozens of lineup changes, sums up the band's notoriety by noting "You can't worry about making friends or alienating people. You've got to be your own man no matter who it upsets. That's the only way to make music of any lasting value." More than a quarter of a century on, the band continues to court controversy while seemingly effortlessly cranking out new pop-punk gems. "My goal," says Weasel, "was always to put the crowd in a position where they didn't know whether to boo us or start dancing." Screeching Weasel continues to win over fans both old and new with each new release; none of their 11 studio albums have ever been out of print and their latest release, the 7-song EP Carnival Of Schadenfreude, finds the band as cantankerous and tuneful as ever. The newest lineup of Screeching Weasel is on the road and working on new songs, and will be for years to come if Weasel has his way. "Screeching Weasel is never breaking up again," he says. "The band dies when I do."

Up until now, the only thing these four crooks were good at making was toilet wine in the joint, but we sent them into Atlas Studios to record with Matt Allison (Alkaline Trio, Less Than Jake, Smoking Popes, etc.) and out came a pop-punk/power-pop masterpiece. They looted a vault of hooks, melodies, and many-layered harmonies for this debut full-length. Think Descendents meets Weezer in a dark alley! There's already plenty of squealers and snitches talking about MASKED INTRUDER, and these thugs have been invited to play all the cool festivals and will be touring with Teenage Bottlerocket in support of this release. It's fun stuff and you're gonna like it...or else.

Cadaver Dogs are too much. Too provocative, too outrageous, too wicked, too scandalous, just too fucking much.

You know the feeling. It's four in the morning and your head is spinning, you can't tell if you're in a room full of people or all alone. All you know for sure is that there's a line on the table, a rolled up dollar bill in your hand, and a decision to be made. Let the Dogs give you a little advice. Do too much.

We're not talking about a band here, we're talking about a barbaric two-headed rock hellion, as likely to break your teeth out with a bottle of Jägermeister as it is to make your toes tap or your ass shake.

With three studio releases of raucous, radio-ready rock and roll already under their belts, including their phenomenal debut full length, 2012's 'superloose', Cadaver Dogs are going in for the kill with the release of their brand new album 'TOO MUCH'. A mesmerizing myriad of brazen bangers and ballistic twisters that'll blacken your brain while whispering in your ear how much it loves you. Their first record as a duo, you'll swear you're actually listening to at least six musicians, a dominatrix, and a witchdoctor, but it's just two scurrilous mutts hell-bent on a good time.

And let's not forget their manic live show, equal parts blood, sweat, vomit, and flying floor toms. This is where the Dogs really run wild, each show a tumultuous lesson in chaos and excess. Having drug their filthy paws coast to coast sharing stages with Andrew WK, Foxy Shazam, Filter, Semi Precious Weapons, Valient Thorr, and more, the Dogs are prepping for their busiest year yet. The band will be carousing the nation with their batch of exhilarating new songs, looking for the weirdest party they can conjure up. They'll also be making stops at various festivals along the way including busting open the Carolina Rebellion Festival in Charlotte, NC alongside Rob Zombie and Avenged Sevenfold, as well as the inaugural Fashion Meets Music Festival alongside Cold War Kids, Circa Survive, and New Found Glory in their home city of Columbus, OH. But most importantly, they'll be haunting your every thought, every dream, every delusion, every hallucination, like a parasitic devil forged in your favorite nightmare.

Feeling overwhelmed? Cadaver Dogs are just getting started and you're in their sights. They've got your scent, so it's already too late.

Too bad.
