A Killer’s Confession Premiere “Remember” Video

A Killer’s Confession, the band featuring Waylon Reavis (ex-Mushroomhead), have premiered a new video for their new song “Remember.” The track, which was co-produced by Ra vocalist Sahaj Ticotin, is expected to appear on the group’s upcoming album.

Reavis commented:

“Sometimes in life people are quick to forget the good and the bad. We all need to be reminded from time to time where the line in the sand is truly drawn.”

He also added the following about the video, which stars his wife Julie:

“It is a post-apocalyptic Snow White. I gave full reigns to [director] Wombat Fire to create what he wanted for this video. He did an absolutely amazing job. I always love seeing an interpretation of what I have set forth with my art with someone else’s art.”

Waylon Reavis (A Killer’s Confession, Ex-Mushroomhead) Diagnosed With Colon Cancer

Waylon Reavis (A Killer’s Confession, ex-Mushroomhead) has revealed that he is currently battling colon cancer. The frontman says he was diagnosed with the disease two months ago.

Reavis discussed his diagnosis during a recent virtual “Headbangers Con” event:

“My heart crashed. My father passed away from this at 58 years old, and my mother passed at 39 from breast cancer. I was just waiting for my time. Luckily, they caught it early, and they were able to cut it all out. I have had four removed, but they keep growing fast. I have changed my entire diet, thanks to my wife and taking medications. I may have to battle this the rest of my life, but I am going to live my life happy and fight.”

He later added that his cancer battle and his father’s death have also influenced some of the material on the new A Killer’s Confession album:

“A couple of songs are about my cancer and about my father. Those songs mean a lot to me. I cannot wait for everyone to hear them. I’m really excited about this one. Every album I write is different and will never be the same as the others. This one is both heavy and melodic. I took myself back to my roots. It’s what the fans want, so I always like to give them what they have been waiting to hear.”

The record’s first single, “Remember,” is set to be released on January 27.

David Ellefson (Megadeth) Announces Fall Dates With Saliva, The Crowned, & A Killer’s Confession

David Ellefson (Megadeth) has booked some socially distanced shows in support of his new covers album “No Cover” (out November 20). Saliva, The Crowned, and A Killer’s Confession will open on select dates.

Tour Dates:

With Saliva, The Crowned, & A Killer’s Confession:

10/30 San Antonio, TX – Historic Sunset Station

11/01 Houston, TX – Barge 295

11/18 Pekin, IL – Twisted Spoke Saloon
11/19 Indianapolis, IN – Emerson Theater
11/20 Chicago, IL – WC Social Club (‘No Cover‘ album release show)
11/21 Green Bay, WI – Phat Headz II (‘No Cover‘ album release show)

Ellefson commented:

“Like you, we’re all trying to make sense of everything right now. We got offered some shows in Texas with Saliva several months ago, and as things opened back up, we thought if they could be done as safely as possible, for us and our fans, it might be possible to do them. So we decided to try. And with ‘NO COVER‘ coming out in November, we wanted to try and play a few intimate, limited capacity shows around the release, just to get out briefly and say hello.

So we are excited to announce a handful of ‘NO COVER‘ CD Release events in the Midwest, with The Crowned, in addition to our upcoming TX/LA END OF DAYS shows with Saliva, The Crowned, and A Killer’s Confession!!!

We have safety plans and protocols in place for capacity, limited interaction meet and greets, etc, and we think we can still have fun, play great shows, and keep everyone safe. These are very intimate club events, some with extremely low capacity, which we are hoping will make it possible for us all to stay as safe as possible and have some fun and semi-normalcy for a night. Trust me, we are just as excited to come see you, as you are to see us.”
