BISON b.c. Comment On Border Detainment
Canadian stoner metallers BISON b.c., who were scheduled to play a special one-off show at Seattle’s El Corazon this past weekend with NOLA sludge heathens Eyehategod, were unable to cross the border and thus, did not play the gig.
Comments guitarist/vocalist James Farwell of the ordeal: “Due to our vicious plot to undermine the American economy and to destroy the citizens of the United States of America’s belief in freedom and baseball or whatever, we weren’t allowed to cross that fascinating imaginary line. More likely due to a fucking clerical error somewhere in Corporate America, the fine people at Homeland Security had no choice but to keep Americans secure from us dirty fucking Canadians. But fear not my fellow poser Canadians, we will get our fucking paper work in order soon enough and be down destroying things before you can say, ‘Does Celine Dion shit in the fucking woods?!,’ — and yes indeed she does. Peace on Earth.”
In related news, the band is currently in the studio penning the follow-up to their critically acclaimed Dark Ages full-length, which made its way on to a host of Year End lists including Revolver Magazine’s Top 20 of 2010 where the band was commended for releasing, “the best meat-and-potatoes stoner-metal record this year.” Further details to be revealed soon…
Dark Ages was release via Metal Blade Records last year and continues to astound with its unsuspected riff urgency. BISON b.c. CDs and merch can be purchased at Indiemerchstore.com.
