Primal Rock Rebellion frontman and former Sikth screamer Mikee Goodman has unveiled his brand new project – and unsurprisingly, it’s a bit nuts.

Featuring Mikee on vocals, vocals, Kieron Pepper on bass, Charley Olsen on guitar and Will Romain on drums, Outpatients will tour the UK next month and have unveiled their first ever video, Throw Rocks.

Check out the video below and find out where you can catch the guys in October:

THROW ROCKS ou†pa†ien†s from OUTPATIENTS on Vimeo.

Outpatients UK Tour

Friday 18th @ The Anvil, Bournemouth
Saturday 19th @ The Hope, Brighton
Sunday 20th Scholar Bar, Leicester
Monday 21st @ The Boileroom, Guildford
Thursday 24th @ O2 Academy, Oxford
Friday 25th @ Voodoo, Electrowerkz, London (onstage midnight)
Wed 30th @ The Black Heart, Camden, London
Thurs 31st @ The White Rabbit, Plymouth (with Skindred)

“I went to Tokyo last year in a search for something new to inspire my mind,” says Mikee of how the band came together. “Finding Yuuri opened up many more possibilities. Her versatile style and unique melodic voice works so well with my own. I actually think SikTh fans would be into this band, cos of the dual vocals and frantic nature, but this is very much out there on its own, in terms of style and sound.”

Joey LaCaze: RIP

Mike Williams, frontman with NOLA sludgers Eyehategod, has released the following statement surrounding the shocking death of drummer Joey LaCaze.

“Joseph M. LaCaze, New Orleans native and drummer for Eyehategod, Mystick Krewe Of Clearlight and Outlaw Order, passed away on August 23rd in New Orleans after a very successful five-week U.K. and European tour with Eyehategod. He also performed ceremonial voodoo drumming and in numerous solo experimental electronic projects. Doctors confirmed to family members the cause as respiratory failure. He also suffered from severe long-term asthma.

“An account is set up for the benefit of his daughter Lilith LaCaze. Checks can be made payable to the Lilith LaCaze or Joseph LaCaze donation fund at any Capital One bank in any city.”

Hammer would like to send our thoughts and sympathies to Joseph’s friends, family and bandmates.
