On Friday night (June 16), the original lineup of BIOHAZARD, consisting of guitarist/vocalist Billy Gradziadei, guitarist Bobby Hambel, drummer Danny Schuler, and bassist/vocalist Evan Seinfeld, graced the stage of Irving Plaza in New York City, marking their first concert in the city in over 12 years. Fans captured the exhilarating performance on video, which can be viewed below.
Prior to this, the reunion of Gradziadei, Hambel, Schuler, and Seinfeld kicked off on May 26 at Milwaukee Metal Fest held at The Rave/Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
On June 7, Seinfeld posted some pics to his Instagram of the reunited original lineup of BIOHAZARD, including the following message: “Sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Reuniting with BIOHAZARD after 12 years and seeing what we have all accomplished on our own, many incredible things and now so hopeful optimistic and excited for this new chapter where once again all things are possible if you believe.
“We are going to write a new album, released a documentary film with our brother at @stonefilmsnyc ,create a new branded line of merchandise and of course tour of the world. The only thing constant in life is change.
“At one point in my life I had closed the chapter on BIOHAZARD thinking there was nothing left for me to do or accomplish and now I see so many possibilities because the energy when the four of us are together is boundless. Four kids from Brooklyn who went from the street corner to festival main stages Arenas and stadiums.
“BIOHAZARD sold millions of albums and played thousands of concerts in 100 countries around the world. This was my life education to see the entire world as an ambassador of positivity with my music in our metal hard-core and even hip-hop styles. All of the incredible human connections I made and all of the emotions I’ve experienced have helped shape me into who I am today.
“What I realize today is that every day is a new beginning and if you ever feel stuck in your life just know that you are one second away from completely changing your life believing in something new putting your heart and passion and your soul into something you care about or sometimes even just loving someone or yourself. When we carry around resentments it’s almost always an over reaction of our ego. Resentment is the number one offender it only hurts us.
“Life is a gift and I’m full of gratitude today for BIOHAZARD our incredible management team our incredible agencies worldwide.
“This shoot is so special to me my guy @trusttheshooter @jeremydeputat absolutely captured the many sides of BIOHAZARD in a long day at our first rehearsal in 12 years.
“See you all in the pit… somewhere!
