Christian Death/CD1334 Call It A Day - Final Show Later This Month

Christian Death/CD1334 Call It A DayThe original ("Only Theatre of Pain") Christian Death line-up (minus Rozz Williams) reunited just over a year and, after some initial shows in Los Angeles, have been touring Europe. I was hoping the band would come to the East Coast but, according to Rikk Agnew's MySpace page, the band's show in Mexico City on March 29th will be the band's last.

It sounded like a good idea when the band got back together and a new album was supposed to follow. Unfortunately, the band seemed to be plagued by problems from the get-go. First George Belanger (drums) dropped out of the band and then the lawsuit from Valor followed. It appears that bassist James McGearty has also left the band, replaced by someone named Corwin.

A live DVD from the band's first official show last April at the Henry Fonda Theatre was supposed to have been released in December on Horror Rock Records but it doesn't look like the site has been updated in a while. Hopefully this disc doesn't end up getting tied up in litigation...

There are a bunch of clips from the band's reunion tour on YouTube. Here is Spiritual Cramp from the band's show in Madrid.
