Chad Smith/ Hemlock
- EMG Gear/
Hemlock is a heavy metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada. The band has been together for more than 13 years and has played concerts with likes of Lamb of God, Hatebreed, Slipknot, Snot, Obituary, Drowning Pool, Chimaira, Meshuggah, & Ministry.
The band, fronted by bass guitarist/lead vocalist Chad Smith, makes a valiant effort to be real to their fans while on tour, often staying at the venue hours after the last song to hang out with fans. Smith, with his long dreadlocked hair and workingman attitude, also handles the merchandise booth at venues and is the heart of the band.
Hemlock has been signed to Continental Entertainment Inc. in December 2006. As of 2007, they were on tour with Ministry. Since that tour, Hemlock has headlined their own U.S. Tour, and gone to tour in Japan on a Headlining tour as well. They are currently working on a new CD, due out later in 2009.
