Mike IX Williams, Eyehategod’s multitalented vocalist, is no stranger to extracurricular activities (and we’re talking the purely legal ones here, folks). He’s a published author and poet (check out his book Cancer As A Social Activity if you get a chance); sings with a side outfit Arson Anthem and also released a spoken word seven-inch titled “That’s What The Obituary Said.” Clearly, he’s making good use of the time we’ve been waiting for a new EHG album.
Williams is now lending his talents to grinders Strong Intention. He’s featured on two of the six tracks on the EP “Razorblade Express.” Williams sings on the title track, parts of which remind us a bit of “Memories Of Tomorrow” on the first and best Suicidal Tendencies album, and “3rd Space Gorilla Generator,” streaming below.
Razorblade Express will be released via PATAC Records on June 1, 2012 in a limited vinyl run of 500 copies. If you live on the East Coast, make sure to see the band when they tour next month. You can order the album here.
