I just got news in the mail that Billy Club Sandwich is putting out DVD of their Japan tour, which is cool news if you're a fan of the band just like I am. I still get crazy whenever I hear The Usual Suspects album, it was a time when this band could do no wrong. I don't think they would be able to come with a weak song even if they wanted to. Obviously, Dead City Records is having a hand in making this dvd happen.
Veteran Bronx NYHC foursome, Billy Club Sandwich, has announced a DVD collection, Japan Suspects Tour, to be released on May 12 via Dead City Records. Featuring over 70-minutes of Billy Club Sandwich mayhem - professionally recorded live footage of classic songs, rare, behind-the-scenes lost tour footage, music videos, bonus footage and more - Japan Suspects Tour is a snapshot one of hardcore's most diverse bands in the Land of the Rising Sun.
Billy Club Sandwich drummer, Glen Lorieo, commented: "It was always a dream of ours to play Japan, and when we finally did we were lucky enough to have it documented. The footage that is captured truly shows BCS at its finest. This is some truly amazing video of BCS on tour, and along with the bonus footage, this DVD is a great historical release for our band."
"This tour was an amazing experience and proved to us once again that hardcore really is a worldwide family," BCS bassist, Gary Muttley, recalled. "We have nothing but love and appreciation for our Japanese family who helped us throughout the tour and everyone who came out to spend the time with us. I'm glad we were able to document this once-in-a-lifetime event and share it with everyone around the globe."
