Eat The Turnbuckle "El Lucha-Tour"

Thursday "The Champions of Deathmatch Hardcore" Eat the Turnbuckle kicked off their "El Lucha-Tour" in Philadelphia, PA. I was on-hand to interview the band and film the show (with heavy lifting from Kevin Gallagher and Woodshop Films Philly). The band will hit LA, Vegas and New Orleans before coming back east to Middletown, NY to battle ECW original Balls Mahoney. 

Eat the Turnbuckle are a mixture of extreme music and ultra-violent wrestling. I did a write-up on them last June when they were just starting out (check it out!) and we even did a shirt and album give-away for their E.P "Fans Bring Weapons" (here). Now they have a new record, a new tour AND now a new video! 

The whole thing was shot at Kung Fu Necktie, the premiere spot for independent live music in the city. This is a promo piece for the band, made from the heart. Hopefully people like it. Please be aware that the content is extreme; think ECW/backyard wrestling mixed with Entombed. The band are friends, but I can truly call myself a fan. They have separated themselves from the homogeous hardcore and metal scenes of today; a gargantuan feat all by itself. Take a look at the new video and STEP IN THE RING

The full promo - "Death from Above"!

After Philly, Pittsburgh was next. They didn't even stand a chance!

New Album "Step in the Ring":
