Acid Bath did release two albums, that much is true. They were called "When the Kitestring Pops
" and "Paegan Terrorism Tactics
". A lot you hear about these guys is untrue unfortunately. Their drummer is alive, despite rumors. The fatality in the band was the bassist, Audie Petrie. Audie and both of his parents were killed when their car was hit by a drunk driver on the Bourg-Larose Highway in Louisiana
, January 23rd, 1997
. Also in the car was Audie's 13 year old brother Kelly who survived the crash. As a sidenote the driver of the truck that his the Petrie's car was on his fourth DUI
and was driving without a license. He was reported to be uninjured.
Other rumors involve the band being in and out of jail for years, practicing in an abandoned porno
theater, loads of drug use and murder. I have no idea if any of this is true but considering the nature of rumors, I have my doubts about the rest of these rumors.
Acid Bath was made up of Dax Riggs
), Sammy Pierre Duet (guitar
ist), Audie Pitre (bass
ist), Mike Sanchez (guitarist) and Jimmy Kyle (drummer
Dax has been singing in two main bands recently, Agents of Oblivion
