Jared Gomes commenteed:

“I’m a kid from the 70s that was raised on rock radio. The songs on this record have a special place in my heart. The 70s, amazing songwriting and produced some timeless music. These are the Gods of Rock and Roll! It was an honor to be able to attack these tracks with a new perspective. We stripped down these classics and put our own G-Punk spin on them.”

Former (hed)p.e. Drummer BC Vaught Joins Breaking In A Sequence

Former (hed)p.e. drummer Ben “BC” Vaught has officially joined Breaking In A Sequence. He will be replacing David Silveria (ex-Korn), who exited the group earlier this year.

The band issued the following statement:

“We are excited to announce that we have filled the vacant drummer position in B.I.A.S. Thank you to all of the drummers that reached out to us for auditions. It is very humbling to see so many talented players so eager to jam with us. Also, HUGE thank you to everyone else for the overwhelming amount of support for us to push forward.

Please join us in welcoming BC Vaught to the band. BC is a SoCal / Orange County native and the original drummer of (hed)p.e. He recorded the first three albums, self-titled, Broke, and Blackout, respectively. He also played with Breaking Benjamin for the touring cycle of their “We Are Not Alone” album. It is truly and honor to have him in the band.

We’ve spent the last couple months dialing in the songs and BC definitely has added his own flair. BUT most importantly… THERE IS STILL GROOVE. We all gel very well together and are all on the same page; gotta keep it fun! We’re excited for this next chapter of the band and can’t wait for everyone to hear it!

Our first official show back will be on Saturday, November 5th for the HUEVOS Years Reunion at Backstage Bar & Billiards in Las Vegas, NV with NONPOINT, MUGG, and special guests. Also, we’re stoked to have the one and only DJ Product from OG (hed)p.e. joining us on stage for our debut show!”

(hed)p.e., Crazy Town, & Twiztid Members Guest On Dropout Kings’ Remix Of “GlitchGang”

Dropout Kings have teamed up with members of (hed)p.e., Crazy Town, and Twiztid for a new remix of their song “GlitchGang.” That track appears on Dropout Kings and (hed)p.e.’s split EP “The Last One’s Standing“. Dropout Kings’ Adam Ramey commented:

“When we came up with the idea to remix ‘GlitchGang‘ we thought it would be cool to bring together the old school and new school of nu metal on one track. We’ve become like brothers with the guys in (Hed) P.E since we toured with them last year, Crazy Town took us out on one of our first national tours back in the day, and then the guys in Twiztid introduced us to their rabid fanbase inviting us to play shows together. It all sort of comes back around full circle and those guys all killed it on the track.”
