King’s X Cancel Shows Due To Jerry Gaskill Suffering Heart Issues

King’s X have been forced to cancel their remaining 2019 dates. This news comes after drummer Jerry Gaskill “was informed that he had some issues with his heart that needed to be addressed.”

The band issued the following statement:

“A letter to the Fans,

On October 14th, during a recent check-up with his Cardiologist, Jerry Gaskill was informed that he had some issues with his heart that needed to be addressed and as a result, he will need to have some procedures to help rectify these issues. Jerry is feeling positive and is looking toward the future, He wanted to make sure that his feelings were truly expressed, on how awful he feels about having this happen. He and the band were looking forward to playing these upcoming shows, especially knowing that they were selling out. Jerry is determined as always to do whatever he can to get back out and see all of the fans, and as his focus is turned inward we all ask that you keep FAITH HOPE AND LOVE during this process.

“ It is with great sadness and sorrow that we must cancel and reschedule these upcoming shows. I thought of every possible way that I could actually get out there and do this. I was very much looking forward to it. But I realized in the end that it just would not be wise. Yet, I am determined once again to come back and be better than ever. Thanks for all the love and understanding.” – Jerry Gaskill

On behalf of King’s X, It is with humbled sadness, that we must announce, that ALL upcoming “King’s X” shows for 2019 will be canceled, to allow for Jerry to fully recover after his operation. The band and Jerry ask that you respect his privacy at this time and please allow for him to recover with peace of mind that he will be back upon the rock’n roll throne once again.

Watch New Video For Beauty In Chaos’ “Un-Natural Disaster (Collide Mix)” Feat. Dug Pinnick, Ice-T, Zakk Wylde, & Pete Parada

Beauty In Chaos, the project led by guitarist Michael Ciravolo, have premiered a new video for “Un-Natural Disaster (Collide Mix)” via Rolling Stone. The original track featured Body Count’s Ice-T, King’s X’s Dug Pinnick, and The Offspring’s Pete Parada. As an added bonus, this remix also includes a new guest solo from Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society). The track will appear on Beauty In Chaos’ “Beauty Re-Envisioned,” which will be released on June 21.

“Un-Natural Disaster” focuses on the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Harvey and Ciravolo had the following to say about it:

“This song really hits close to home as I was born and raised in New Orleans. I lived in Los Angeles when Katrina hit, but watched as friends and family lost everything. My elderly aunt was evacuated as the city’s services shut down, and sadly she did not survive the move to Alabama. She, along with at least 1,200 others, lost their lives as a result of this devastating hurricane.”

Pinnick also commented:

“The remix of this track is even heavier, more brutal and danceable than the album version, which I love! I know Michael was from New Orleans … and I lived in Houston for quite a while. I witnessed what Hurricane Harvey did there and saw the good and bad in humanity. I think the video translates the lyrics and what was in my head and heart extremely well. Loved that Ice put his punctuation mark on it as only he can!”

Parada added:

“This song is striking in its imagery. The destruction and devastation left behind from these storms is brought to life in the music. I was completely honored to play on a track with both Michael, Dug, and Ice. Then to have Zakk Wylde on the remix really elevated it to a whole new level.”
