New Orleans’ grimy punk problem children CLASSHOLE will commence a West Coast tour. Slated to take place from March 27th to April 12th, the sixteen-date journey includes performances alongside Swedish hardcore act DS-13, and Cleveland, Ohio-based hardcore band, Fuck You Pay Me. CLASSHOLE will be joined by drummer Jorge Herrera (Despise You, ACxDC) this run filling in for Paul Webb.
CLASSHOLE features alumni from Eyehategod, Hawg Jaw, Outlaw Order, The Mystick Krewe Of Clearlight, Mountain Of Wizard, Mangina, Tirefire, haarp, and more. The devastatingly real band released their self-titled debut via The Compound Recs in conjunction with the band’s own Terror Cult imprint last year. Already issued in a limited vinyl run via Terror Cult, the CD edition comes as a four-panel digipak featuring an alternate layout and lyric liner, plus bonus video footage of the band performing live in NOLA.
I have never seen them live but if they are half as amped up as they sound on the recordings, this tour will take one of your eyes and several teeth but most likely it’ll be worth it.
