Chris Colohan Talks Upcoming Left For Dead Reunion

Chris Colohan (Burning Love/ex-Cursed, etc.) has chimed in with the reasoning behind Left For Dead‘s forthcoming reunion show and subsequent discography release. An excerpt from that can be read below with his full piece available via Blogspot.

“Yes it’s true – the Left For Dead show in Baltimore in January is on. I just wanted to explain for my own part, as someone that doesn’t love reunion culture, especially seeing it apply to my generation of bands – why we’re doing this. My rant about old burnouts that haven’t picked up a guitar since they turned 21 (or 19 up here), got wasted, gave in to the status quo and forgot all about hardcore, rehashing the one good thing they did by accident at 17 on the reunion circuit as if they gave a shit – that’s for another day. I’ll leave it at this – everything isn’t necessary just because it’s possible. Buyer, beware.

On BL tour this summer I saw Dom from A389 in Baltimore. He just did a very loving job of the Countdown to Oblivion discography that the world wasn’t asking for but that he’s been persistent enough to get us to complete for years now. Dom was from up here before he moved down there, our bands used to play together and he was there for it all in real time. He asked me what it would take to do an LFD show for his last A389 bash in Baltimore, and my obvious answer was “John Waters”.

Omens and Portents: Strangely, just the day before in Richmond, the fine young men of Atlanta’s Dead In The Dirt convinced me to sing Skin Graft with them (which they do better than we ever did) and doing it I realized that those songs and words are still front and centre in my mind. Negative as they were, these were songs about our very real frustrations and they continue to mean a lot to me. Also, for most of us we’re not doing this again, because we haven’t stopped yet to begin with.

We’ve lost some friends physically and some mentally, along the way. There’s been good and bad times between us all, and right now they’re all so much black water under the Skyway Bridge, and we have no good reason not to. It’s not for money, or lack of commitments and things going on with our other bands (Burning Love and Pick Your Side). We had the chance to do something very redeeming and next-level with this, which is hopefully gonna work out as planned, and to play in good company with a bunch of bands that fed our fire back in the day…”

Left For Dead (and numerous others) will play the “A389 Recordings IX Anniversary Bash” at The Ottobar in Baltimore, MD on January 19th.
