Beastmaker hail from the unlikely locale of Fresno, California. Sweating profusely in a parched no man’s land about three and a half hours northeast of Los Angeles, the city isn’t exactly a cultural mecca-and yet it’s the birthplace of Hollywood outsiders and weirdos like Sid Haig, Slim Pickens and director Sam Peckinpah. Still, it suffers from an unsurprising dearth of musicians interested in heavy rock.
As the band prepares for the release of their sophomore album Inside the Skull this summer they are ready to hit the road again in North America! The first run of dates with Mothership and Slow Season begins March 10th in Costa Mesa, CA and runs through March 18th in Seattle, WA.
Following a quick break the band will return to the road supporting Zakk Sabbath (Zakk Wylde’s Black Sabbath Cover Band). These dates begin May 19th in New York, NY and run through June 10th in San Francisco, CA. A complete list of all dates can be found below.
Drummer Andrew Alejandro Saldate IV cannot wait to hit the road:
“We are pumped to go out a support our new record Inside The Skull with the rockin folk of Mothership & All star trio of Zakk Sabbath!! It’s gonna be a hell on wheels!!! Look out!!!”
Beastmaker released their debut Lusus Naturae earlier this year via Rise Above Records. Lusus Naturae is available to order HERE.
Though front man Trevor Church had the concept for Beastmaker as far back as 2006, it wasn’t until he and drummer Andres Alejandro Saldate IV, a.k.a. Juan Bonham, hooked up with bassist John Tucker in 2014 that the band was fully realized.
Beastmaker’s lyrical landscape is awash in imagery from midnight movies and the dark arts, but that’s only part of the picture.
