Biography

Blazing a trail out of Memphis, Tennessee, Joecephus and the George Jonestown Massacre are on a roll. Having been referred to as “a cross between Motorhead and Merle Haggard” and having served as opening acts for such diverse artists as Shooter Jennings, David Allan Coe, Charlie Robison, Southern Culture On The Skids, Jim Dickinson, Unknown Hinson, Joe Buck, Scott Biram, The Reverend Horton Heat,H. R. of the legendary Bad Brains and many more. Joecephus and company are ready for full auditory assault in any venue that can take it. Exhibiting a tireless work ethic, the band has played Honky-tonk venues as well as Punk/ Metal clubs throughout the tri-state area. They have created a unique style by mixing “outlaw” country sounds with rockabilly rhythms in combination with hardcore metal drumbeats, blurring the boundaries of country, psychobilly, and punk. Rigorous time spent in the studio and on the road has not prevented the band from finding time to write and record a song for the soundtrack of the upcoming movie, “The Importance of Being Russell”. “Cityfied,” will be used in this film while the song, “Going Back to Memphis” was featured on the compilation CD, “Yells from the Crypt” from Gravewax records.Another movie, “Grim Sweaper” uses their song “Quittin’ Time” Featuring members who come together from a prestigious list of some of Memphis’ finest bands, this is just the beginning for a band that will be tearing shit up for a long time to come.
