Whisteria Cottage Show Tonight With Fuck The Facts
July 29, 2009
Baltimore, MD's fast rising extreme metallers, Whisteria Cottage, will be hitting the stage tonight at the Talking Head club in Baltimore, alongside Fuck The Facts and several other bands. The show may also be the final show for original frontman Mike Comegys. The full line up for tonight's show is as follows:

Fuck The Facts
Rumplestiltskin​ Grinder
Whisteria Cottage
Strong Intention
Destined For Nothing
Absolute Vengeance

The band recently announced that they were searching for a fill in vocalist for an east coast run with blaspheming death metallers Rose Funeral, as Mike would not be able to hit the road with the band due to personal issues. The tour dates have now expanded to a nationwide run, though no update has been given on who will be stepping in to fill the vocal position in Mike's absence.

Regarding tonight's show and his place in the band, Mike has issued the following brief update via Myspace:

"This will probably be my last show with Whisteria Cottage unless we can get something scheduled later on in September. It would mean alot to me and the rest of the guys if you could make it out to this show and support us and what we love to do."

Tour dates for the Rose Funeral headliner are as follows (exact locations will be announced shortly):

8/20 - Indianapolis, IN
8/21 - Peoria, IL
8/22 - Kansas City, MO
8/23 - Wichita, KS
8/24 - Fort Collins, CO
8/25 - Salt Lake City, UT

9/11 - Virginia Beach, VA

In related news, the band's debut album, 'Heathen', is now available via iTunes. The album, which was released back in January, has previously been available directly from the band's Merch Store, as well as Interpunk and Smartpunk, and select Hot Topic locations and all good independent record stores nationwide. In the meantime, you can check out tracks from 'Heathen' below.

iTunes is currently both the top selling digital music store in the nation, and the top music retailer in the nation overall, making it the logical choice for bands large and small, commercial and underground to have their music made available through the digital retail giant.

After dropping off the "Creatures Of Exodus" tour earlier this year (which also featured Within The Ruins and Wretched on the bill) and subsequently cancelling two headline runs due to issues with their Van, Whisteria Cottage used the down time to work on material for their next record and playing select shows in and around their local area.

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 2002
HOME TOWN: Philadelphia, PA
MEMBERS:
Patrick Battaglia - Drums
Matt Moore - Guitars and Bkup Vox
Shawn Riley - Bass and Lead Vox
Ryan Moll - Lead Guitar

There is a secret underground crime syndicate called RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER (Society RsG) that has been running shit for eons. They are not the mob; they are bigger than the mob. No one knows who heads this lethal organization. The only visible entities of this secret society are the criminal thrash band RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER and members of the Orange and Black Attack.

The musical arm of RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER formed in early part of the new millennium, around 2002, with Matt Moore, Ryan Moll and Pat Battaglia requesting the services of Shawn Riley and Jason Sidote to round out the evil assault. After a vicious 7" and thousands of dollars in stolen goods, Sidote parted ways to pursue the diabolically pornographic XXX Maniak. The super sly Eli Shaika, Orange and Black Attack assassin and member of Witchaven, was decided to be the only choice as to take the reins of this dastardly quintet. New goals for heists have been laid out with RsG’s Relapse Records debut, Buried In The Front Yard… and the crime wave of the future has been realized with RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER.

The band RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER is the physical manifest of the criminal works and diabolical will of Society RsG. The band themselves are experienced criminals, and are a recruiting tool for the syndicate to get more members of the Orange and Black Attack. When asked why now was the time for the physical manifestation of RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER, Shaika comments: “Today’s metal is filled with the false and boring. No one wants to hear the same old same old. Dudes started dressing like girls, and playing like dorks. Metal needed to become dangerous again, and with their superior diabolical burglar metal, RsG brings an edge back into the metal world not known since the days of burning churches and eating brains!”

The Orange and Black Attack are the enforcers of Society RsG. They are trained in both thievery and assassination, and take care of all the 'dirty work' for the syndicate. Any problems within the syndicate or with the band itself will be handled by the Orange and Black Attack. This group of individuals also lives in secret, but you can identify their membership by the symbol of the RUMPELSTILTSKIN (the little icon dude on RsG merch). New members are recruited at every show, and every person that buys a CD, or more importantly, buys a shirt, will be seen by the world as a proud member of the Orange and Black Attack.

Eli Shaika left the syndicate to pursue other mischief.
