The biggest defenders of traditional heavy metal, 3 Inches Of Blood, are currently preparing for the next big North American touring onslaught, which kicks off with a massive run across Canada on April 28th with Goatwhore. This leads them directly into the much anticipated, big summer festival Rockstar Mayhem Tour performing alongside such major acts as Lamb of God, Rob Zombie and Hatebreed. Be sure to visit www.myspace.com/3iob now to view their complete touring itinerary. The band will also be performing a series of off-dates with Lamb of God and Hatebreed (see after the jump).
3 Inches Of Blood have also teamed back up with acclaimed director Rick Podd (The Watcher, Hellraiser), who previously shot their “Battles and Brotherhood” video, to shoot a new clip for the track “Silent Killer.” The group’s latest album, Here Waits Thy Doom, is going to be reissued as a Mayhem Tour edition with four exclusive new tracks along with a bonus DVD featuring their video for “Battles and Brotherhood,” their performance on Fuel TV and more. Look for this new edition everywhere on June 29th.
Shane Clark (guitars) further comments: “Hey all. It’s that exciting time again when we’re making another video. Fuck Yeah! This time around it’s for our song ‘Silent Killer.’ It’s going to be a straight up East Van production once again directed by our friend Rick Podd who directed our barbaric ‘Battles and Brotherhood’ video. This time, it’s going to be about us getting killed by an assassin methodically throughout one fine Vancouver evening. I personally am excited because we have one of the industry’s finest FX artists around helping us add a nice element of gore and guts which will get your blood boiling. Not to mention babes doin’ the killin.’ All is going great so we will have it ready just in time for Rockstar Mayhem Fest, which we are super stoked as all Hell for. Lots of great bands and a whole lotta BBQs and partying. Can’t wait for this summer because we will be once again be bringing our brand of kick ass metal to the masses. See you there and lets rage!”
