When Rob Zombie dismembered his band for a film career The Death Riders were born. After years of touring with Rob Zombie, Blasko (bassist) was offered the 2004 Ozzfest tour with Ozzy. Shortly thereafter, Ozzy found himself bedridden from an accident while off roading, and Blasko found himself without a tour. While talking with a close friend, Blasko heard about a band from Venice, CA called The Death Riders. He received a demo from guitarist Jonny Coffin (owner of coffincase.com) and immediately wanted to be involved.
