When Sleeper Horse broke up, it was a sad day for Denver music. The act's brand of heavy-duty musical brutality and adrenaline-fueled live shows earned accolades in the short time it existed, and to see the group fall apart before it could fulfill the awesome potential they displayed was a true bummer. A big part of the band's draw was the charisma, stage presence and talent of frontman Mike Herrera. We just got word that Mr. Herrera is in a new band called the Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill. The band has a MySpace
set up, but no tunes on it yet, so it's hard to say what it'll sound like. Here's what we do know: the outfit's being led Herrera, it has a kick-ass name borrowed from one of the best segments of Creepshow
, and the great sketch illustrating this post was in the pictures section. That's more than enough to pique our curosity.
