ABOUT ERIC HAMMERS
A child of the 80s underground punk/skateboarding scene, musician and songwriter Eric Hammers found inspiration here to propel him to where he is today. Spending a majority of his life playing shows and traveling the globe, he’s been lucky enough to have his most recent band, Deathwish, get signed by Beer City Records (Milwaukee, WI), the label of other major bands including Die Kruzen, Verbal Abuse, Millions of Dead Cops, DRI, and many more. His other band, Wartorn, is signed by Southern Lord Records (Los Angeles, CA) and includes label mates such as Pro-Bot featuring Lemmy Kilmister, Dave Grohl, Poison Idea, Sleep, Black Breath, Sunn O))), and more.
Hammers’ endless work in his bands Deathwish, Dresden, Wartorn, and Remission has given him the opportunity to tour with the likes of DRI, MDC, Raw Power, Municipal Waste, Deviant Instinct, Oi Polloi, Channel 3, and Hellshock. Spending more than 100 days a year on the road, Hammers has been endorsed by companies such as Lace Pickups, Skull Strings, Vader Cabs, Saldivar Social, and Mittnacht Guitars. His next gigs will be a tour of Japan with Deathwish, and later this year a DRI / Deathwish Gulf Coast tour.
Fun facts about Hammers! He was a two time sponsored skateboarder and a former pro-wrestler who also taught the sport. One of his and Mike Mercury’s students and friend, Mr. Kennedy / Anderson went on to win money in the bank at Wrestlemania, and was also a WWE USA Champ and two-time TNA World Champion, beating Sting and Jeff Hardy.
That wraps up this bio and like Eric Hammers likes to say, “See you on the road!”
