General Bastard will begin touring the United States in November 2012 in support of their new CD "Rock N' Roll Mercenary" due out
late fall of 2012 on SEG MEdia.
Hailed by many as the guitar hero of our era General Bastard and his band mates have wowed audiences and built a loyal fan base all across the United States with their blend of Surf Thrash. General Bastard also starred in and wrote/performed music for the now cult classic horror film Thankskilling which has been available on every major cable system in the U.S, not to mention a top rated film on Netflix and Hulu and has built up a huge cult fan base. General Bastard also plays guitar with legendary shock rock band The Mentors as Licks Alotopus.
Decked out in camouflage and Luchador mask the General amazes audiences with his guitar acrobats playing songs and solos over the neck of his guitar and displaying an ability to play one handed solos using only his pickhand tapping on the fretboard with his fingers.
General Bastard also shows a diverse range of influences with songs ranging from Punk & metal to straight up surf music that would make Dick Dale himself proud and a knack for covering television theme songs such as The Jefferson's, Laverne & Shirley, King of the Hill and many others.
General Bastard songs are also filled with humour that hasn't been seen since the likes of Frank Zappa. Metal Maniacs magazine said this about General Bastard "Combining hilarious thought provoking original material alongside your favorite TV themes songs like Laverne & Shirley & Gilligans Island among others. The General will have you laughing and singing along all night long! He's not politically correct, he hates sissy rockers Like Scott Stapp & Creed, He sings about how "Emo Must Die" and "Simon Cowell is Fucking With Me" and other tender nuggets like "I Hope You Have a Heart Attack & Fucking Die". Part Big Time Wrestler, Part Bastardized General, Part Professional Pervert The General says the things we're all thinking, but are too afraid to talk about just in case big brother is scantering about."
