Marc Rizzo Announces New Project, Solo Album, Live Dates; Group Debuts KISS Cover

Courtesy: O’Donnell Media Group

Marc Rizzo has joined with two well-known friends to form a new band.

The announcement was made Thursday through a press release. Rizzo, Tony Campos (Static-X, Soulfly), and Christian “Opus” Lawrence (Dead By Wednesday, Ellefson) have formed the new super group, Hail The Horns. The group premiered the lyric video for its cover of KISS’ song, ‘God Of Thunder’ Tuesday.

The video features the original song’s lyrics over imagers of skulls and occasional shots of the band. The band’s take on the original song is a presentation that audiences will find interesting. That is due to the stark contrast of the homage that the instrumentation pays to the original work against Campos’ heavy vocals. Campos’ vocals are far heavier and gritter than those of Gene Simmons, who provided vocals to the original song.

In related news, Hail The Horns has announced a brief tour in November. The brief Midwest tour is scheduled to run from Nov. 18 in Lombard, IL to Nov. 21 in Braidwood, IL, with performances in Fort Wayne, IN and Des Moines, IA in between. The tour’s schedule is noted below.

The group have announced Midwest tour dates for November 2021:
Nov 18 – Lombard, IL – Brauerhouse
Nov 19 – Fort Wayne, IN – Piere’s
Nov 20 – Des Moines, IA – Venue TBA
Nov 21 – Braidwood, IL – Top Fuel Saloon
More dates to be announced!

In other news, Rizzo is scheduled to release his first ever hits compilation, Living Shred Vol. 1 Sept. 10 through Godsize Records. The 11-song record will pull songs from all four of Rizzo’s solo albums.

Rizzo’s tour dates with Hail the Horns are not his only live dates scheduled this year. He is also scheduled to tour with Whiskeydick this month. The band’s tour dates are noted below.

Catch Rizzo Solo on tour this August with WHISKEYDICK :
August 13 – Sioux Falls, SD – Big’s Bar w/ Enuff Z’Nuff
August 14 – New Market, MN – The Doublewide
August 15 – Green Bay, WI – Old School Bar

August 24 – Denver, CO – Lion’s Lair
August 25 – Colorado Springs, CO – The Triple Nickel
August 26 – Amarillo, TX – Zombiez
August 27 – Fort Worth, TX – The Rail Club

In other touring news, Rizzo was originally scheduled to tour with Soulfly. However an announcement from Nuclear Blast Records Thursday revealed that Fear Factory founding guitarist Dino Cazares has allegedly taken Rizzo’s place on the tour. The announcement offered no explanation as to whether Cazares was replacing Rizzo and whether Rizzo is still a member of Soulfly.

When he was asked about that matter, Rizzo offered the following brief statement:

“I’m super excited to move foward with my solo project, Hail the Horns, and Revenge Beast!!! These last few years have been too much of a stress on my life and being home this past year focusing on my projects has been super healthy for me. Much love to all the fans and I can’t wait to hang with you guys after my shows and talk more in person!!
