Comments Off on Thrash Metalheads BELUSHI SPEED BALL Serve Up New Album, Stellkira, On May 10th

Louisville thrash metalheads and saucy pie enthusiasts, BELUSHI SPEED BALL, have announced plans to release their 3rd album, Stellkira, on May 10th

Commenting on the upcoming record, bassist and lead vocalist Vinny Crastellano says:

We are proud to present the world with, ‘Stellkira.’ An album that truly encompasses the DNA that embodies the entity Belushi Speed Ball. Our fans can expect an unrelenting punch to the gut dripping with pepperoni grease.

This is what happens when you go beyond sixteen chapels and make the mythical seventeenth! Hold on to your lug nuts, It’s time for an overhaul!” 

Today, the band has served up a piping hot slice of the highly anticipated new album; the delicious single “My Favorite Color Is Pizza.”

Crastellano adds about the new single: 

Belushi Speed Ball’s music has been compared to frozen pizza. Which is a hilarious attempt at insulting us. Frozen pizza is absolutely delicious and Pizza Thrash is some of the most fun music ever created. We fully embrace this concept and proudly present our newest single, “My Favorite Color is Pizza”! A Pizza Thrash anthem that will have even the most elitist gatekeeper shamefully slurping up every riff out of the tub drain.

Stream “My Favorite Color Is Pizza“: 

In an unprecedented move, the connoisseurs of crust BELUSHI SPEED BALL have released the new single “My Favorite Color Is Pizza” on an actual slice of pizza encased in resin. That’s right, a playable, amplified slice of ‘za. The release follows previous “alternative formats” including singles/records released on Teddy Ruxpin, Gameboy Advanced, N64 cartridges, Furby, 90’s Lunch Box, Sega CD and more.

Crastellano says of the tasty release:

Belushi Speed Ball is the first pizza thrash band (or any band) to release music on actual pizza!

We have encased the slice in resin to preserve it’s freshness. Just click the button and let the pizza play for you our newest single, ‘My Favorite Color is Pizza.’ We will have the single available in Detroit and New York style.

Belushi Speed Ball is a Kentucky-based band founded in 2013 as a studio project amongst friends with a penchant for cliché crossover thrash. Their first live performances came soon after, enthralling a rapidly growing fanbase with a uniquely interactive brand of theatrics and unorthodox approach to releases and merch.

Dubbed “one of the funniest fucking things I have heard this year” by The Needle Drop’s Anthony Fantano, Belushi Speed Ball are inspired by bands from Toxic Holocaust and Anthrax to Gwar and Municipal Waste, to whom they simultaneously play homage and satirize a mean comment from a fan in their song “Ripping off Municipal Waste”, which was voted one of Leo Magazine’s top 20 songs of 2022.

With a reputation for both trashing venues and meticulously cleaning them up after each individually themed performance, Belushi Speed Ball are masters of executing the unthinkable.  From playing out of a Mad Max-esque moving van and starting Terminator-inspired 300-person Nerf gun fights to releasing entire albums in N64… or Furby… formats, nothing is sacred as they continue evolving as, in the words of Metalsucks, “a freakshow of blistering thrash dedicated to laughing its ass off at blistering thrash.” 

This year, Belushi Speedball are readier than ever to keep that momentum going, with yet another album mastered to perfection by Joel Grind of Toxic Holocaust, as well as a host of festival appearances, tours, and merch set to drop over the months to come.
