BIOHAZARD - "MEANS TO AN END" IN-STORES AUGUST 30! Be sure to check out the new Biohazard E-card.
The Spyderz is the brainchild of Evan Seinfeld, a reinvention of hard rock to the next level. The marriage of riffs and melody fused with lyrics straight from the gut that almost anyone who is willing to be real about who they are and what is really going on can relate to. After 20 years of screaming his head off in BIOHAZARD, Evan felt it was finally time to spread his wings and take his musical ability to the next level. Evan explains: "Biohazard was the single biggest chapter in my life... Danny, Scott, Billy and I speak all the time, and all felt it was time we explored musical paths we had yet to travel, so no, there was no violent break-up, and we reserve the right to play together anytime we see fit. "My 5 year career as an actor on HBO's "Oz" and all my roles in film, along with my adult film career alongside my fucking bomb ass wife, Tera Patrick, have catapulted my inner spirit to new heights where rock and roll, emotion, motorcycles, and sex kinda-all become the same thing. The Spyderz are an amazing bunch of musicians from many different genres of rock and metal, that make up the foundation of our sound, which brings together classic rock, punk, metal, southern rock, and the blues. It is a fundamental and timeless rock project that is aimed at non trendy rockers who have a true appreciation of song writing, and lyrics from the gut. No weird makeup, no costumes, no rap .... Just good old rock and roll that kicks you in the balls and leaves you on your knees gasping for air." The Spyderz spin a web that is all about the good times. All about beautiful women, low to the ground hot rodz, horsepower, guitars, drums, bass, and more beautiful women. The lyrics run the gamut of everyday life, covering everything from the magic of fresh lust, to severing the ties of toxic relationships. Songs touch on the desperation of love, and near death experiences. Writing constantly alongside his new partner Dirrty, Evan and The Spyderz have been getting together a collection of songs, taking in influences from the Stones and the Dead, from the Misfits to Social Distortion, in preparation for their debut album, due to hit the streets early next year. The band made their live debut supporting Buck Cherry in Long Island last month, going down a storm with the sleazy rockers in attendance, and are now planning to show European audiences what all the fuss is about. The Spyderz will play The Netherland's "Fields Of Rock" festival on June 16th (where Evan and his wife Tera will be MC-ing the main stage) alongside Ozzy Osbourne, Velvet Revolver and Iron Maiden. After this they will hit Brussels on June 18th, where they will play a show at Noise Impact ASBL after which they will be making their way to the UK for an exclusive show at London's Underworld on June 19th. The Spyderz live: Saturday 16th June, Fields of Rock – Biddinghuizen (NL) Monday 18th June, Magazine 4 – Bussels (B) Tuesday 19th June, Underworld – London (UK)
In a recent interview with Britain's Zero Tolerance magazine, Biohazard guitarist/vocalist Billy Graziadei confirmed that the band's recently released tenth album, "Means to an End", will also be their last: Biohazard are splitting up. "It was a natural progression with the band," Billy said. "We've grown in different areas. I have a daughter and I'm focusing now on my other band Suicide City [also featuring former Kittie bassist Jennifer Arroyo]; Danny [Schuler, drums] has three kids now, so things have really changed for him; Evan [Seinfeld, vocals and bass] is doing his big porno-acting thing now, and that's cool. One of the things about Biohazard is that it's your life, your way. So to each his own. "I think over the years we just grew apart," Billy continued. "I've come to a stage in my life where I've come full circle and music is only for pleasure now. Don't get me wrong, I always dug it, always enjoyed it, I've had a fucking great time, but I didn't know any better. All I had was music. But my reality now is that I have a family and we've got to pay the bills. I'm no different from you - we've both got to buy the same token to ride a train, you know? So I'm back in the workforce, hanging out with my buddies at the weekend and dealing with the bullshit so I can enjoy the pleasures of life, like making music."
Two new Biohazard tracks entitled "Kings Never Die" and "Don;t Stand Alone" have made their way here. The tracks come off the band's upcoming release "Means to an End" due in the U.S. on August 30 through SPV Records and one day earlier internationally. Track listing for "Means To An End": 01. My Life, My Way 02. The Fire Burns Inside 03. Killing To Be Free 04. Filled With Hate 05. Devotion 06. Break It Away From Me 07. Kings Never Die 08. Don't Stand Alone 09. To The Grave 10. Set Me Free
The original lineup of the highly influential New York-based group Biohazard, whose intense fusion of the aggression of hardcore, punk and thrash metal with the socio-critical commentary and authenticity of hip-hop earned the band extensive international acclaim will reunite for a series of performances in the summer of 2008 to commemorate the band's 20th anniversary. Bassist/vocalist Evan Seinfeld, guitarist/vocalist Billy Graziadei, drummer Danny Schuler and guitarist Bobby Hambel have not performed together publicly since 1995, when Hambel left the group at the end of the touring cycle for Biohazard's third album and major-label debut, "State Of The World Address." Like its predecessor, the landmark "Urban Discipline" (1992), "State Of The World Address" sold more than 1 million copies worldwide and capped the band's evolution from a Brooklyn local favorite into an international success. In recent years, Schuler kept busy by playing drums for the band Bloodclot and occasionally mixing music for other artists, frequently in collaboration with Graziadei. In addition to his success with his new band Suicide City (currently working on the second release) Graziadei also stays active producing and recording bands in his studio; Underground Sound Studios. Seinfeld, meanwhile, remained in the public eye via high-profile appearances on HBO (five seasons on the critically acclaimed prison drama "Oz") and VH1 ("SuperGroup"), as well as a column in Stuff magazine. Additionally, he shot photos for such publications as Playboy, Penthouse and FHM and voiced characters in the video games Manhunt, The Warriors and the forthcoming Grand Theft Auto IV, and as CEO of Teravision, he currently manages the career of his wife, leading adult film star Tera Patrick, whom he has directed and performed with under the name Spyder Jonez. He also recently launched a new band, The Spyderz. Seinfeld admits that none of these extracurricular activities would have been possible without the success of Biohazard, and looks forward to returning to his roots. "Biohazard was the single most important chapter in our lives," he says. "Our music brought us together and helped us rise up out of the streets of Brooklyn. Our journey has been an amazing one, and for me, it's all about my brothers Billy, Bobby and Danny, and of course the fans, whose undying support has never given up on the hopes of a reunion of the original band. I'm proud to announce that the four of us have decided to bring our special brand of hardcore tribal ceremony better known as a Biohazard live show to select venues across the globe. Here comes the pain, and see you in the pit, motherfuckers!" Adds Hambel, "We owe it to ourselves and to everyone who wants to see the original band reunite. We've lost a lot of great friends and musicians over the years, but we're still here — and it's time to set the record straight!" In early January, the original Biohazard members met and rehearsed together for the first time in a dozen years. "To be in the same room with old friends again fuckin' rocked," says Graziadei. "We created something unique back in the day and I'm psyched we can all hang together and recapture that vibe. It's like time stood still and we're all 19 again!" "I'm extremely happy that we're all friends again," Schuler adds. "Life is too short, and all the fights, rumors and beefs don't matter anymore. What matters is the four of us being friends and getting up on stage again together. I can't wait to do this."
