Get ready for a jam-packed night of rock n’ roll, moshing, and head-bobbing at the Echo this Sunday, October 19th! Bringing this medley of bliss to L.A. is the Mississippi band, Bass Drum of Death. What used to be a one-man band is now composed of founding member John Barrett, Len Clark, and Josh Hunter. The band just released their third album, Rip This, a follow-up to their self titled album last year. The new record was released Oct. 7 via Innovative Leisure. Check out their video for their single “Left For Dead” below! Directed by Dick Thompson the video featured a day in the life of an eligible bachelor who’s home is filled with a veritable harem of dangerous women. Oh, and it’s also NSFW!
Bass Drum of Death’s show at the Echo is SOLD OUT, but now’s your chance to be part of the fun! Supporting Bass Drum of Death will be the L.A. band, Shark Toys.
