Biography

Rock City Morgue formed in New Orleans in late 2002.
Founding members Rik Slave (of “Man Scouts of America”) and Sean Yseult (of “White Zombie”) moved from the South to spend their formative years in New York City's Lower East Side, where their undying love for underground music and horror movies bonded their friendship. After both spnet time in different bands, they later found each other in New Orleans - where they met Johnny Brashear, guitarist, and drummer Keith Hajjar, to form the group.
Their self released e.p., “Some Ghouls” is produced by Daniel Rey (of Ramones fame), and engineered by grammy award-winning Trina Schumaker. After receiving accolades in the press, it was recently rereleased by Antidote Records in America, K Industria Records in Spain, and Lonestar Records in Germany. Live shows across the U.S.and Europe have brought out a wide spread fanbase, and playing shows with bands such as Green Day, Velvet Revolver, the Pixies, Cramps, X, and the Buzzcocks has kept them busy on the homefront. They will be touring Europe through January and February 2005.
They are currently mixing their first full album, to be produced by Daniel Rey and J.Yuenger (“White Zombie” guitarist and producer of “Fu Manchu”, “Puny Humans”) and released on Nocturnal Records in Jan 2005.
