Chris Colohan's Left for Dead Reunite for A389 Anniversary Show
Published Aug 31, 2012Current Burning Love vocalist Chris Colohan got cozy with A389 Records earlier this year when the U.S. imprint reissued some recording from the musician's old, double-vocalist hardcore crew Countdown to Oblivion, but the love jones doesn't stop there. It's just been reported that another of Colohan's high-speed '90s-era outfits, Left for Dead, will be reuniting to headline a performance at the label's eighth anniversary bash in Baltimore early next year.
Brooklyn Vegan points out that the two-day festival finds Left for Dead taking top billing on the second night of proceedings, January 19, at the city's Ottobar. The previous night's performance will feature longtime greats Integrity and a reunion set from Catharsis.
It's unclear at this point if Left for Dead will play any other shows around the same time, or if this means that A389 has some reissues in mind for the act. The unit's Splitting Heads compilation CD -- which collected material off their 1996 split with Ochre, their 1997 split with Acrid, and 11 live sings culled from a split 12-inch with Chokehold (which also featured Colohan) -- is currently out of print, but is still available via iTunes.
This isn't the first time Left for Dead have got back together, however. Though they split in the late '90s, a reunion gig in 2004 was preserved on a self-titled LP on Deranged.
