Preachers & Pornstars / Bio

To the uninitiated, a band called Preachers & Pornstars may elicit images of some white trash metal sleazefest — some ungodly mix of Nashville Pussy, White Zombie, Lynyrd Skynyrd, a truckful of whiskey and a garage full of crack. When asked for a description, they recall one fan’s opinion of them: “If by some weird twist of fate Kurt Cobain (before he was killed by Courtney), Rob Zombie, and Ozzy ended up in a huge orgy with a gaggle of white trash debutantes, the stain on the sheets would be [us].”
The music and songs pay at least as much heed to ’70s road warriors such as Grand Funk Railroad and Black Sabbath as they do White Zombie.
“ It’s time for real rock to make a huge comeback and we feel that we’re helping that happen.” states Parsons. "We try to make kick ass music that we would listen to. How can we expect other people to get into what were doing if we’re not enjoying it ourselves?!”
P&P have shared the stage Powerman 5000, played back to back gigs with Prong, The Exies and Drowning Pool at the World Famous Whisky A Go-Go in Hollywood. They also landed a slot on HELLYEAH's Balls, Volume and Strength Tour, when it made a stop at the Majestic Ventura as well as numerous other national opening slots. When asked about the Preachers & Pornstars experience so far, this is what Parsons had to say - “It’s been an amazing ride so far. We’ve made it through a ton of crap (losing and replacing members, car accidents, shattered bones, blood, sweat, tears, uncontrollable rashes, etc.) Life’s full of all kinds of stuff like that, but if you want something bad enough you just have to pull yourself up, dust yourself off, shake off the bumps, get back down to business and make shit happen. It’s that simple and I wouldn’t change a thing about any of it.
