Former bandmates reunite for power trio Neon Warship

When Ferret Music recording artists’ Twelve Tribes called it a day in 2007, Dayton metal fans mourned the loss of an internationally recognized powerhouse act with a decade and a half of touring, MTV appearances and a significant back catalogue of critically-acclaimed albums under their belts. To the delight of local headbangers, it wasn’t long before vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Kevin Shindel began pulverizing eardrums with the Mouth of the Architect and channeling Norwegian black metal maestros with Bringers of Disease. But, metal fans in some circles held their breath that he’d someday reunite with Twelve Tribes bandmates in some capacity for a project, or, fingers crossed, a full-blown reunion. While no reunion is currently on the books, Shindel, former Twelve Tribes bassist Matt Tackett, and Tackett’s bandmate Jay Bird from short-lived Goodlife Records band Waking Kills The Dream, emerged in 2011 with a classic metal -inspired trio that nods to metal forefathers like Led Zepplin, Black Sabbath, St. Vitus and the like. The band have put finishing touches on a demo with a local engineer/producer and will be showing off their latest epics at Blind Bob’s this December 17 with Architects of DOOM , Zuel and Footbinder in tow. Find out more about the band by searching “Neon Warship” on Facebook.
