Saturday, June 30th Backwoods Payback will participate in the second annual Heinzmann Benefit in Frederick, Maryland.
After playing a supporting role in last years stellar lineup (including doom legends Pentagram, Earthride and Iron Man) Backwoods Payback will now act as the headliners of this years festivities! This year the lineup continues to offer the best in underground music from the US and Canada, all joining together to raise money for friends of the underground scene and aid them in the fight against cancer.
In somewhat related news, Backwoods Payback front man Mike Cummings (a cancer survivor himself) has been featured on the front cover of a newly released "Book of Beards". Independently released this past week, the book features stunning portraits and writings from a large collection of bearded folks from all over the world, again with the goal in mind to help those in need after the incredible financial burden fighting cancer leaves.
