 STABBING WESTWARD 

- 30th ANNIVERSARY REUNION SHOW -

 

American Industrial rock band Stabbing Westward have reunited and are on their way to performing live shows once more to celebrate 30 years of their music.

Christopher Hall and Walter Flakus formed the band Stabbing Westward when they were in college back in 1986 in Macomb, Illinois. They came up with the name while working at the college radio station WIUS-FM. During an interview in 1996, Hall stated, "Since we went to Western Illinois University, Stabbing Westward had a certain 'kill everybody in the school' vibe to it! The school's way out in farm country and the country is really close minded. I was walking around like Robert Smith with real big hair, big baggy black clothes, black fingernail polish and eye makeup. They just didn't get it. We hated the town."

In late 1993, Columbia issued the band's major-label debut, Ungod. Although the album wasn't a success, the group promoted it relentlessly, touring constantly and doing scores of interviews. The groundwork paid off in 1996, when the group released their second album, Wither Blister Burn & Peel. The touring and promotion had built a solid, albeit small fan base which provided the launching pad for the second record's first single, "What Do I Have to Do." The single became a Buzz Clip on MTV, and by the summer, it was a modern rock radio hit that pushed the album to gold status. Stabbing Westward received further exposure that summer when they opened several dates for the reunited Sex Pistols.

Stabbing Westward announced a dissolution on February 9th, 2002, but they are now back to yet again. perform once more.
