#LINKFROGGING...staying the course
Life has remained nice and busy in Venomous Maximus land (aka Houston). The band signed with Napalm Records last month, as rave reviews for their debut full-length ‘Beg Upon The Light’ continued to roll in, and is currently putting together plans for a summer tour. A June 18 stop in Little Rock is already confirmed as is a date at Reggie’s in Chicago June 22 with Valient Thorr, Gypsyhawk, and Ramming Speed.

In this episode, Jibbies and Loond get out into the field, visiting the always sonically spectacular Scout Bar in the southern Houston ‘burbs to take in DevilDriver and Skeletonwitch.

Once J&L detail the show itself, they turn toward the future, pontificating on the ins-and-outs of Anthrax and Testament ‘co-headlining’ their upcoming tour and attempting to answer the question, “Is it really a Dead Horse reunion without Michael Haaga participating?”
[Ed. Note: Our interview with DevilDriver guitarist Jeff Kendrick, though not labelled as such, was Ep. 016, making this Ep. 017]
