Last Thursday, we were all pretty shocked to learn that deathcore outfit All Shall Perish was coming back to play their first live show in more than a decade. At the time we learned via social media that they were ready to play the Big Texas Metal Fest in May.
Earlier today, the band once again took to social media to announce that they were all set to go and that (most) of the lineup was set in stone.
“We are so back. The cyclical nature of things has come to pass over even The Deathcore. Perhaps the genre never died but zombified?
“The first All Shall Perish record was released in 2003 and the ‘last’ in 2011; and now only 9 years after we announced our (failed) reunification and almost 13 years since our last album, we can finally say of the end…. It is finished. We have awoken from our dogmatic slumbers to find ourselves in a strange world, where Deathcore lives and the kids are alight. The blood of the martyrs has been the seed of revival.
“Thank you to all the bands, old and new, who kept the torch burning for a genre that faced straight up hate and has emerged re-discovered and sick AF, much to the chagrin of purity-spiralers worldwide.
“To all the fans, who every single day of our absence, never stopped expressing their discontent, this is for you.
“FIRST SHOWS IN 10 YEARS
Big Texas Metal Fest – May 2024
Inkcarceration Festival – July 2024″
According to the band, the lineup will consist of singer Hernan “Eddie” Hermida, guitarists Chris Storey and Ben Orum and drummer Matthew Kuykendall. There’s no new information about who’ll handle bass for them.
Remember, the band tried to get back together in 2020 with vocalists Hernan “Eddie” Hermida and Craig Betit, guitarists Chris Storey and Ben Orum, bassist Caysen Russo, and drummer Matt Kuykendall rounding out the lineup. Unfortunately, that never really came to fruition. And that was pretty much how things went over a multiple reunion attempts. After all, this is the same band that’s had an on again, off again relationship with Hermida since he joined Suicide Silence in 2013.
Either way, it’s exciting to know we’re gonna get at least a couple shows with All Shall Perish this year.
