Venomin James Return to Stage, Release New Album Next Week

Posted By on Thu, Sep 9, 2010 at 9:32 AM


Venomin James will open for Fu Manchu at the Grog Shop tonight. The show will be the Cleveland band’s first gig since drummer Jared Koston succumbed to cancer in June.

(Living Stereo frontman Brandon Abate will fill in on drums. Pro-Pain/Spudmonsters drummer Eric Matthews will sit at the kit in upcoming shows.)

Koston played on the band’s debut album, Crowe Valley Blues, which will be released by local label Auburn Records next week.

The disc includes Death’s Wings, an EP of unreleased and remixed material.

Bill Peters, head of Auburn, says Koston recorded drum tracks for another album's worth of material.
