For every show that Hemlock performs, the members, friends, family and street team of Hemlock promote for weeks in advance, hanging up posters and signs, and passing out fliers by hand to thousands of people. Hemlock also has free email and standard mailing lists with thousands of names of fans who have signed up at the shows and on the band's official website, hemlockworld.com, which has gotten over 50,000 hits in only a few months.
After Hemlock draws in the crowds, selling out countless venues, these gifted musicians creatively keep the concert-goers happy and entertained. Two legendary Hemlock concert events that everyone eagerly anticipates are the "All Girl Pit" for the song Sour and the "Split the Pit" of Conniption Fit, both of which have video footage fans can download from Hemlock's website hemlockworld.com. Unique merchandise created by the band are Hemlock mousepads, wallets, antennae balls that look like Hemlock members, snowglobes, panties, visors and trucker hats, backpacks, lunchboxes, purses, belts, and even Hemlock perfume and cologne, plus there's the typical CDs, hoodies, windbreakers, and other goodies Hemlock has to offer. And as always, after the show, Hemlock holds a "Meet and Greet" so fans can have the chance to visit with them and get autographs and photos with the group.
Hemlock is not just a passing craze-they've been together since 1993 and have recorded five albums: Hard Pressed, Controlance, Return of the Clunkinator, Shut Down, and their most recent Pigeonholed, produced by Mikey Doling of Soulfly and Snot fame. Based in Las Vegas, NV, Hemlock has toured throughout the Western U.S. and as far East as Louisiana with bands such as Hatebreed, Chimaira (with plans to tour the East Coast with them later this year), Drowning Pool, Coal Chamber, Soulfly, System of a Down, Hed Pe, Papa Roach, Machinehead, and many more. Hemlock wins contests and earns regular rotation slots on radio stations like KUPD in Phoenix, KZGL in Flagstaff, KDOT of the Reno/Lake Tahoe area, Las Vegas's 107.5 X-treme Radio and KOMP 92.3, XM Radio, The X of the Inland Empire of California, and dozens of college radio stations in the Western U.S.
More tours, radio airplay, and CD recordings are in the works for Hemlock, but the growing fame these bring doesn't go to their heads. Hemlock will always stay loyal to their fans, signing autographs or just saying hello and visiting for a few minutes at a restaurant or mall, and their music will always be true, because as Chad says in his intro to Kill Your Children, "This one's about me. This one's about you. This one's about all of us…" It's not just a band, an audience, and music-Hemlock is a way of life.
Plans were in the works to revive MASTIV with all original members in spring 2015 when sadly, founding member Lance Isbell passed away from a heart attack in July of 2015.
In fall of 2016 Steve Thiriot reached out to founding Members Chris Whitney, and Chris Meyer, to reform MASTIV and honor they're fallen band mate. Both were unable to commit due to other important obligations. Chris and Chris gave Steve they're blessing to continue on.
November 2016 started the rebirth of MASTIV. Steve invited long time friend James Hoover (Drums) to join him on this new chapter of MASTIV adding Nikki Rangel (Bass) and for a short time Del Vaught (Guitar)
In July of 2017 MASTIV Added Madzilla (Lead Guitar) and Dane Haws (Rhythm Guitar) to complete the missing pieces of the puzzle and the current line up of MASTIV.
#NELastWords will tease the ears and daze the eyes. Their high energy and outstanding crowd commanding execution keeps the show fast paced and pounding. The band rallys together well with their fanbase to bring the high energy not only to the stage, but to the audience as well. Definitely representing the local music scene as well as painting a picture of the ups and downs of this wild and amazing city called Las Vegas.
NE Last Words are ready for you. The question is... Are you ready for them?
