Biohazard’s Classic Line-Up To Play Selected Shows In 2023
The classic line-up of Biohazard have announced they will play “scattered” shows “throughout 2023.”
Billy Graziadei (rhythm guitar, vocals), Bobby Hambel (lead guitar),Danny Schuler (drums) and Evan Seinfeld (lead vocals, bass) will reunite for an appearance at next year’s Bloodstock Open Air festival at Catton Park, Walton-on-Trent, United Kingdom. Biohazard will headline Sunday night, August 13, 2023, on the Sophie Lancaster stage, and they will also perform at the Dynamo Metalfest, set to take place August 19-20, 2023 in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
Earlier today, Graziadei shared a video message on Instagram in which he said: “You guys have been hearing a lot about Biohazard camp doing shit. We all have our lives and work, and we are going to be doing shows scattered throughout 2023. Free time off. It’ll be our paid vacations. What a better way to spend time off from work than with you guys, huh? Fucking awesome.”
Billy went on to confirm that Biohazard’s line-up for the upcoming shows will consist of “the original guys: Evan, Danny, Bobby and me.”
Asked by Metal Injection about Biohazard’s status, Billy said in March: “We talk often. I was with Evan at a memorial for my friend Scott [Koenig], and it was great to see him. Danny and Bobby and I talk quite often, and during the pandemic there were a few people that wanted to play bass for us. And then during the pandemic, we were all discussing and had a heart to heart. And basically, the outcome was, like, life’s too short. If we don’t take away anything from this pandemic, it’s, like, if we’re going to do something, let’s put the band back together again.
“I’m the only member of the band that’s still active in music,” he continued. “I know the guys do things here and there, but it’s what I do with what I love. It’s me, so I’m going to keep going.
“With Biohazard, it’s always been a vibe thing with us. It’s not like we sit down and say, ‘Hey, in 2023, let’s make an album. Let’s go on tour and release the album mid-tour.’ In a business sense, that’d be great. If I had the business sense that I have now, I would have been way more successful. But like I said, that was never my goal. It’s still not my goal. My goal is music and art first. I probably won’t be recognized for anything awesome until I’m dead and gone, but it’s okay. I have other means to pay the bills and I have a great wife who supports me.”
