Guitarist Mark Morton commented:

“To truly understand the essence of the band Burn The Priest, one must first consider the landscape in which it began: the mid-90s. Grunge and alternative music ruled the airwaves. Social media and the internet had yet to assume their role as our collective sources for entertainment and cultural exchange. It was a time when DIY ‘zines turned us onto new bands and regional scenes, and ‘copy and paste’ still implied a print shop and a glue stick.

As our sound and songs developed, so did our goals… we began playing basement parties and warehouse shows and in doing so, we realized that the energy we were creating was transferable. The shows we played in those squats and warehouses [in Philadelphia] and the people we met there are forever embedded in our collective consciousness and the DNA of our band.”


Lamb Of God Share Poster For Apparent Burn The Priest Event

After yesterday’s teasing, Lamb Of God have now shared a poster for an apparent Burn The Priest event in Richmond, VA on March 23. It definitely looks like a concert flyer, but there is no venue listed, and it says things are going down at 10 am, which is pretty early for a show. On top of that, it also says they will be joined by special guest “Martha Splatterhead,” who happens to be The Accused’s mascot. Stay tuned for more information.
