Taintstick, the explosive gods of heavy metal ecstasy, have announced they have recruited Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden to handle bass duties for their upcoming World Tour. Taintstick promises to arouse the once-proud demons of rock and roll from their long and shameful slumber, when they drop their debut album on Suburban Noize Records on Oct 27th, 2009.
Benji Madden took to Twitter to break the news, stating: “I am psyched to announce that I am playing bass for TAINTSTICK! We are playing our first show at Wasted Space in Las Vegas on October 24th, 2009 for the TAINTSTICK record release party. It’s gonna be an awesome night!”
Other special guests for Taintstick’s CD release party will be Tony Hawk, Carey Hart, Rev. Bob Levy (Howard Stern Show comedian), Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller (MTV’s Bully Beatdown), Andy Bell and the rest of MTV’s Nitro Circus, alt-porn vixen Joanna Angel and many more!
Quite possibly the best thing to hit rock n’ roll since the Beatles, Taintstick is fronted bypro skateboarder and MMA fighter Jason Ellis, alongside drummer/studio mastermind Shoebox and ace shredder Cowfucker on guitar.
