The local hard rock act Hot Ham & Cheese (the band fittingly describes its sound as “hard rock mixed with sludge and doom metal") has plans to officially release its new album, Wake Part 2, in 2013. Diehard fans have the opportunity to purchase it early; the group is selling it on its website and promises that if you buy it now, it’ll arrive in time for Christmas. You can purchase the disc here for the very evil price of $6.66. The band has one last show scheduled for 2012; it plays on Thursday, Dec. 20 at the Foundry in Lakewood.
