Boston's DOOMRIDERS are sonically antisocial and undeniably unforgettable as they come. DOOMRIDERS are comprised of a stellar lineup featuring Nate Newton (Converge, Old Man Gloom), along with longtime friends Jebb Riley (There Were Wires, Disappearer), Chris Pupecki (Cast Iron Hike), and JR Conners (Cave In). The demon child of their collective unhealthy obsession with Classic Rock, Hardcore, and Skateboarding, DOOMRIDERS are a rare beast in today's music world. Their soulful no frills approach conjures the spirits of Thin Lizzy, Entombed, and damn near every evil in between.
Taylor Hawkins (born Oliver Taylor Hawkins on February 17, 1972 at Harris Hospital, Fort Worth, Texas) is an American musician, best known as the drummer of the rock band Foo Fighters. Prior to joining the band in 1997, he was previously the touring drummer for Alanis Morissette on her Jagged Little Pill tour, as well as the drummer for a short-lived experimental band called Sylvia. He has also founded a band named Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders, in which he plays drums and sings.
From the drummer of Foo Fighters comes Taylor Hawkins & The Coattail Riders. A small side-project turned into a fully fledged album, the front man and drummer, Taylor Hawkins, describes it as "an accident." Other members include Chris Chaney on bass (Jane's Addiction, and also played with Taylor with Alanis Morissette) and an enigmatic "Gannin" on guitar.
Hailing from Essex, England BLACK RADIO was formed in late 2005 by Mike Jones, Allan Gunby and Jay Lloyd. Originally conceived as a side project, the disbanding of Al and Mike's previous band, political punk rockers THE FILAMENTS made BLACK RADIO a top priority. Jay's move to playing bass marks a departure from his stint as the lungs and vocal chords of KILL THE LIGHTS. With a healthy addiction to whiskey nights and speed rock there was only one route the band could ever take; TURBOCHARGED PUNK ROCK.
