PENTAGRAM Announce Two Live Shows

March 6th and 7th, 2009 will bear witness to return of the authentic, pioneering madman, Bobby Liebling and PENTAGRAM. This legendary US deity of dark rock and doom will cast its shadow for two nights only, March 6th and 7th, 2009 in NYC and Baltimore.

For the first time in 25 years, the “Godfather of US Doom,” Brooklyn-born Bobby Liebling returns to NYC. He and PENTAGRAM bring their relentless, revolutionary, buzz saw rock to Webster’s Hall on Friday, March 6th, 2009. The show will also be filmed for the 9.14 Pictures (Rock School, Two Days in April) documentary, Last Rites: The Fall & Rise of Bobby Liebling.

The burning rays will again ignite the very next night, March 7th, 2009, as a kindling fire is again prepared for the sign of the wolf! Sonar in Baltimore, MD is the sight of this second and final sonic séance.

On stage with Liebling will be ex-ram family member, Gary Isom (SPIRIT CARAVAN) on drums, who joins Liebling live again for the first time in nearly 15 years. These shows will introduce DC’s Russ Strahan on guitar and Mark Ammen (UNORTHODOX) on bass. Very special guests include Dutch doomrockers THE DEVIL’S BLOOD, Philadelphia’s heavily melodic instrumentalists SERPENT THRONE (Baltimore only) and more should be announced soon.

Bobby had the following to say about the shows:

“To all my fans and friends out there: I get a lot higher on music than getting high got me. Show up and wait and see. I promise you I will show ‘em how. Thanks for your continued support. Hope all the rivetheads had a good holiday and I WILL see you soon.

“Alive and well,
Bobby Liebling
