Memphis Zealots Joecephus & The George Jonestown Massacre Announce "Five Minutes To Live: A Tribute To Johnny Cash" October 20th

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Joey Killingsworth anchors Memphis-based Joecephus & The George Jonestown Massacre which features a revolving cast on bass and drums. He has set his mind to producing a series of tribute albums alongside Dik LeDoux with Joecephus & The GJM as the backing band, with special guest stars to benefit various charities. The first was 2016's double LP "Mutants of The Monster: A Tribute to Black Oak Arkansas", which featured an astounding lineup and raised money for the Memphis area animal rescue The Saviour Foundation.

Now, Saustex will release the latest effort "Five Minutes to Live: A Tribute to Johnny Cash" on October 20th and it is once again impeccably conceived by the pair and recorded in Memphis, TN.

Pinkus (The Butthole Surfers, Honky). The EP is available on 12" 140 gram blue vinyl in an edition of 200 (exclusively as well as black vinyl, CD and digital. As a kicker, all of the band's profits benefit the FSH Society. The band will tour in October (dates below).
