Long running Maryland biker doom masters, EARTHRIDE, will be performing at the legendary Stoner Hands of Doom 12 Festival in Frederick, Maryland on August 13th, 2011. This is the third time the band will be playing the fest f and the first with new bassist Josh Hart (ex Unorthodox and Revelation). Said vocalist Dave Sherman, “We played SHoD in 1999 when Earthride first formed and it was great; it was actually the pre-SHoD festival, and it was held in downtown DC. Some of the same bands that played that first year, like Las Cruces, will be playing again, and I think this time around will be one of the most brutal SHoDs ever. If you want to see some of the best bands this genre has to offer, don’t miss it!”
