Biohazard is back. Celebrating their 35th anniversary as a band, Brooklyn, NY hardcore metal legends Biohazard have returned, reuniting their original lineup of Billy Graziadel, Bobby Hambel, Danny Schuler and Evan Seinfeld. The first wave of confirmed dates for the seminal outfit include multiple international festivals in summer 2023, as well as select appearances in America. See dates below, with more announcements coming soon. In addition to touring, Biohazard have a 35th anniversary documentary in the works containing previously unreleased footage spanning four decades. They also plan on returning to the studio to record new material in early 2023.
“Biohazard is an iconic band that ripped it up on the streets of New York when I lived there in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, so I’m excited to be working with them to bring their pioneering hardcore sound to a new generation,” says Andy Gould (Rob Zombie, Pantera, Type O Negative). The band is managed by Andy Gould and Paul Gargano, and booked by Jim Morewood at the K2 Agency internationally, and Scott Sokol at Pinnacle in North America. Biohazard pioneered a genre, with a trailblazing sound that fused elements of hardcore, heavy metal, punk and hip-hop. Expect their live sets to be rife with mosh pit classics from their classic early catalog, including their self-titled debut (1990), ‘Urban Discipline’ (1992) and ’State Of The World Address’ (1994).
BILLY GRAZIADEL: “Over the years we made some great music together and had so many incredible shows on some pretty amazing tours. After spending much time and focus on PowerFlo and my solo BillyBio, I decided it was the right time to recapture these iconic moments. Always kicking ass and looking for the next challenge, I’m ready to do it with Danny, Bobby and Evan once again!”BOBBY HAMBEL: “I’m honored to perform with the band again. I can’t wait to get onstage with the guys and do what we do! I’m looking forward to traveling and playing live – see you out there!”DANNY SCHULER: “Life is short, things happen, and before you know it, it’s too late – that’s why I’m extremely grateful that we are getting the chance to do this again, forgiving the past and focusing on the future. I’ve missed the band and the great times we’ve had, and I’m looking forward to the shows, the travel, and seeing our friends all over the world again… This is gonna be awesome, let’s go!” EVAN SEINFELD: “It’s been ten years since we all played together, and I’m in a huge place of gratitude for the opportunity to get back to the roots of Biohazard and not only reconnect with the other guys, but also the fans. We’ve been through decades of madness, and it feels like the fantastic four are back together.”
