Joecephus and The George Jonestown Massacre
Blazing a trail out of Memphis, Tennessee, Joecephus and the George Jonestown Massacre are on a roll. Having been referred to as “a cross between Motorhead and Merle Haggard,” the band in their 16 years of touring can be heard regularly on Sirius XM and have shared the stage with such diverse artists as Johnny Winter and Shooter Jennings to Mike Watt, MC50, Antiseen and many more, Joey "Joecephus" Killingsworth and his revolving band are bringing their full auditory assault to any venue that can take it. Their latest release now available from Saustex Records is called Heirs of The Dog: A Tribute To Nazareth and features guests from Clutch, Nashville Pussy, Supersuckers and more.. All the bands profits from this release is going to The FSH Society for Muscular Dystrophy Research.
