PIG, Julien K, Ghostfeeder
August 5, 2017 @ 8:00 PM - 11:30 PM
The Lord of Lard returns to Asylum 13 August 5 with Julien K and Ghostfeeder.
Watts will preach the word of the Lard alongside exhaulted prophets of pork and former KMFDM members Günter Schulz and En Esch, reuniting 3/4 of the powerhouse that dominated Industrial Rock throughout much of the 80’s and 90’s. In a time of such political angst as we see now, we could use some of the brutal musical disobediance unleashed by that trio.
During this unholy mass, En Esch will take over the pulpit with a sermon of sin that includes his independent teachings as well as excertps from the gospel of Slick Idiot, the band formed when he and Schulz were blessed with a shared vision of the Lard.
The Lord of Lard also welcomes some newer converts to preach the pork: Z Marr has seen the error of his deceitful ways and no longer plays the organs in the Church of the Combichrist, now bashing his keys for the boar.

Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck have been musical partners for 15+ years. During their time together they have weaved in and out of mainstream music like a constantly evolving musical fashion house. In the late 90’s they were responsible for massive radio and sales hits such as “Blind” (Korn), “Blue Monday”,” Stitches”, and “Fiction” (Orgy), and recently “Crawl Back In” and “Let Down” (Dead By Sunrise with their pal Chester Bennington). After enjoying years of traditional music business success, they have spent the last 10 years methodically moving away from the mainstream approach that put them on the map, opting to carefully steer their fans in a new direction, towards their new independent alternative electro rock project Julien-K – which sounds more at home with the likes of modern acts such as M83, The Kills, LCD Soundsystem, The Naked and Famous, Empire of the Sun, and even the Black Keys (see Derakh’s sleazy electro-blues guitar playing on “We’re Here With You”).
Ghostfeeder is the brainchild of songwriter, programmer, and vocalist Derek Walborn. Along with guitarist/compatriot Luke Dangler, he presses riffing guitars and get-up-and-dance bass lines through a filter of gritty synth leads and painstakingly calculated digital glitches. The end result is the sonic equivalent of dragging a lifetime of 8-bit video games and science fiction films across the sticky floor of your local rock music hall and then cleaning it up just enough to sneak past the bouncer at that dance club you’ve always wanted to get into.
Eager to provide fans, colleagues, and venues alike with an unexpected degree of professionalism, Ghostfeeder’s ever-evolving performance makes an impression. Thus far, Ghostfeeder has shared stages and venues with national acts including Blink 182, Powerman 5000, The Bunny The Bear, Genitorturers, Nonpoint, Royal Blood, and Filter. Thanks to overwhelming fan support, the band also played on the Ernie Ball Stage at the 2013 Van’s Warped Tour. In February of 2014, Ghostfeeder, in collaboration with Chris Corner of IAMX, released a music video for the song “Just Like That,” propelling their name, music, and style into the international spotlight. October of 2014 saw Ghostfeeder releasing “The Messenger,” a conceptual EP about alien abduction with the support of Beyond Therapy Records. In 2015, Ghostfeeder successfully wrapped their first North American tour in direct support of En Esch, formerly of KMFDM, making many new friends along the way.
