“It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Trevor Scott Strnad. Beloved son, brother, and Shepard of good times, he was loved by all that met him. A walking encyclopedia of all things music. He was a hugger, a writer, and truly one of the world’s greatest entertainers. His lyrics provided the world with stories and spells and horror and whimsy. It was his life to be your show. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 800-273-8255″

The Black Dahlia Murder Share “Sunless Empire” Performance From Upcoming “Yule ‘Em All” Event

The Black Dahlia Murder have shared a new live video for their song “Sunless Empire.” The footage is taken from the band’s upcoming “Yule ‘Em All: A Holiday Variety Extravaganza” event. That virtual performance will stream on December 18 and tickets can be found HERE.

The group commented:

“It’s also our absolute honor to introduce the hilarious Neil Hamburger as our handsome holiday time host. He killed it in every respect and gave Yule ‘Em All a nice healthy shot of weird juice! Neil was gracious enough to work with us and lend his special brand of yuletide humor to round out this awesome extravaganza of death metal entertainment for you all.

We’ve been hard at work piecing this whole venture together and it honestly just keeps getting better and better. High-Definition live music, Claymation, skits, drunken hilarity, and now Neil Hamburger? Sounds pretty sick, right? You’re gonna love what we’ve come up with and I’m sure this is going to go down as a major milestone event in TBDM history right next to Majesty and Fool ‘em All!

The stream launches December 18th at 7 pm EST and will be available on-demand for the following 48 hours for unlimited viewing (good news for you guys in different parts of the world who are on vastly different times). Australia, UK, Europe, Mexico, South America… no matter where you are at, this is a worldwide event and I am calling you out to get involved! Come rock with us and have a laugh… TBDM style”
