#NoTourForOIdMen - The Slaughterhouse Chorus and The End Men

New York rock 'n' roots bands The End Men and The Slaughterhouse Chorus join forces for a 10-date U.S. tour this March, binging on booze, blues and barbecue from Bushwick to Bucktown. Spiking classic Americana influences with liberal shots of punk, garage and rock and roll, the two bands present a raucous, unpredictable and, dare we say, intoxicating double-bill. "No Tour For Old Men" kicks off in Brooklyn, NY at Muchmore's on March 20th, with Sons of an Illustrious Father!

Brooklynites The End Men distill their blend of blues, punk, garage and carnival music into what can best be described as pure rock 'n roll. It's a heady, heavy, immediate sound, one that made multiplatinum producer Bob Power exclaim "HOLY S#%%! Tom Waits meets the White Stripes." Flattering, sure, but maybe a little simplistic - the power-duo of Matthew Hendershot (vocals, guitar, bass) and Livia Ranalli (drums, percussions, vocals) conjure up a musical chaos quite unlike any you've heard before. Comedic interludes offset the energetic musical onslaught as the two play anything within reach; homemade instruments and found objects litter the stage, adding an unpredictable element to a floor-shaking live show that radiates reckless joy and abandon. 2013 is looking like a big year for the End Men: the terrible twosome have just released their first full-length record "Play With Your Toys" and will embark on their second tour of Europe this summer.

Hailing from the capital of the Empire State, Albany quartet The Slaughterhouse Chorus marinade their rampaging punk rock in country twang and classic rock swagger. 2012 saw the band touring the East Coast, racking up "Best Local Punk Band" designations in both the Albany Metroland Readers' and Critics' Polls, and unleashing their debut full-length on the world. Self-produced in their home studio (colloquially known as the John Wilkes Sound Booth), the album features a dozen boot-stomping singalongs that get political, personal, and downright apocalyptic- it's "a hell-bound hayride through the heart of America" (Dying The new year finds The Slaughterhouse Chorus releasing a split 7" record with Syracuse punk rockers Bridge Under Fire before hitting the road in March. Always committed to the DIY spirit, the band is also producing and releasing several albums by New York's finest independent bands over the course of 2013 on their own Built4BBQ label. (
