PROBOT To Perform Live At MTV Studios!

January 23, 2004

PROBOT, the metal side-project of former NIRVANA drummer/current FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl, will be taping a live performance at the MTV studios in New York City on Wednesday, January 28.

Grohl will be joined for the occasion by a one-off band featuring Eric Wagner (TROUBLE),Wino (ex-THE OBSESSED, ST. VITUS, SPIRIT CARAVAN),Greg Anderson (Southern Lord Records head honcho) and Nick Raskulinecz (PROBOT, FOO FIGHTERS mixer).

PROBOT's rendition of the album cut "My Tortured Soul", as well as interviews and a PROBOT-themed "Headbanger's Ball" featuring the world premier of the "Shake Your Blood" video (with MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy) will be airing close to street date of PROBOT's self-titled debut CD, due on February 10 through Southern Lord Records.

In a recent interview with Metal Update, Grohl spoke abut the possibility of PROBOT one day performing live.

"We talked about it a little bit, but you can imagine it took three years to make this record," he said. "The logistics of pulling everybody together in the same room, in the same place, in the same night would be fucking phenomenal. I think the odds are better that a fucking meteor strikes the Earth.

"I always imagine the most insane record release party I've ever been to in my life. Like, 'Yeah, let's get everybody together in one bar for one night.' It would be fucking out of control. But I think it's practically impossible. At one point I thought it'd be cool to headline a festival. To play some big metal festival and have the headliners be PROBOT. At the end of the night each person would come out and do their thing. It'd be great, but I don't think it'd ever work." Read the rest of the interview here.
