Stabbing Westward '30th Anniversary Shows!'
We Love The Underground
Stabbing Westward is an American industrial rock band. They formed in 1986 in Macomb, Illinois, but did not release their first studio album until eight years later. The band released three more studio albums before announcing a dissolution on February 9, 2002. Stabbing Westward reunited in 2016 to celebrate their 30th anniversary together, and will play more shows in 2017.
Regarding the band's name, Andy Kubiszewski said: «essentially when Chris and Walter were putting the band together, they had a gig and there was a deadline for a name for the band, so they pulled out a bunch of album covers and they pulled out a record cover and it had an excerpt from, I believe it was an Eisenhower speech, where he was talking about communism coming to the west and he used the phrase 'stabbing westward,' and they went oh well, 'Stabbing Westward,' that will work.»
