Comprised of three integral parts: Eric Calvert – Guitar/Vocals, Jon Elizondo – Drums, and Chris Black – Bass, Switchblade Jesus have set out to create the mandatory soundtrack for your roadtrip through the deserts of Hades, hitting 666 mph in a beer-fueled Dodge Challenger ’69 and embarking on a brain melting hellride through space and time accompanied by three massively talented Texans and a case of Lone Star Beer. They have already torn apart the stages of SXSW, Chaos in Tejas, The Reverend Horton Heat Fest, and the Borderland Fuzz Fiesta, having shared the stage with the likes of Gwar, Orange Goblin, Kylesa, Black Tusk, Ghoul, Cro Mags, Mothership, Wo Fat, Valient Thorr, Jake E Lee, Rev Horton Heat, Supersuckers, DRI, and Honky.
Mixing southwestern boogie, desert-worn blues, retro-metal assault and fierce rocking into a sound that screams Texas–at times sanguine and starkly beautiful, at others full of damn sexy groove and assaulting violence.
