by BWW News Desk - Aug 3, 2015

A show played perfectly to an empty bar. A singer with life and death on his shoulders, swinging a microphone like Samson swung a jawbone. The real ones who die with nothing half the time.

Jeffrey Foucault will release Salt As Wolves on October 16 via Blueblade Records (more...)
