Crunchy Crunk Combo
Triumphs Over Tragedy and Turmoil
Simply put, 2018 has been
a troubling year for Geezër.
Although they've remained
silent for the last few months,
the band's founders now are
finally ready to speak out.
DATELINE MIAMI, FL: Following the release of Geezër's acclaimed 2016 sophomore record, Geezër II, it seemed nothing could derail the super-crunk combo from achieving global superstardom. Then came 2017.
Geezër members found themselves spending much of last year holed up in a South Florida courtroom, embroiled in a bitter battle with the band's longtime label, Ghoul Tone Records. Then, co-founding 92-year-old drummer, Victor Farnsworth, died unexpectedly from repeated self-inflicted blows to the skull with a mallet following a failed croquette tournament effort on the grounds of the group's Miami retirement community. Farnsworth was replaced immediately by Chicago native, Ms. J. However, the 24-year-old drummer soon went MIA, shortly after the kick-off of what was to be the band's U.S. tour. By year's end, Geezër's longtime gangsta back-up vocalist, Lil Shoogie, found herself back occupying a Dade County jail cell following a reported parole violation.
Although the band enjoyed tremendous success with the release of the 2017 holiday single, "Heavy Metal Xmas," Geezër endured only further darkness and despair in 2018 when the lifeless body of co-founding 83-year-old bassist, Calvin Sizemore, was pulled from the back room of a Gifford, Florida crack house on February 9th — resulting in the cancellation of the band's February 11th festival concert appearance in Indian Harbour Beach, Florida.

looking forward to completing the new Geezër album
and making numerous personal appearances in 2018.
Yet, despite these heartbreaking setbacks, co-founding 85-year-old frontman, Harvey Geezer, and his twin brother, co-founding 84-year-old guitarist, Leonard Geezer, remain determined to triumph over the turmoil and tragedy that threatens to thwart their rock and roll mission.
"Death and taxes, there ain't crap you can do about it," stated Leonard following Calvin's February 16th funeral service. "We were born to rock," Harvey added enthusiastically. "We'll just replace the dead guys, and move forward."
Rumors continued to circulate throughout the U.S. underground rock scene, regarding how these recent events will effect Geezër's remaining 2018 schedule. For accurate, up-to-the-minute info, stayed tuned — right here.
