Eyehategod and Ringworm tour2014-04-11 by Travis Marmon | 12 Comments
|In support of their first album since 2000's Confederacy of Ruined Lives, legendary |
New Orleans sludge metal band Eyehategod will embark on a tour of the United States this
summer, with support from Cleveland metalcore stalwarts Ringworm and up-and-coming crust
This was the announcement from Eyehategod's Facebook page:
Today, New Orleans’ favorite musical miscreants, EYEHATEGOD, announces their most
extensive US tour in years. Scheduled to commence in Atlanta, Georgia on May 28th, the day
after the official North America release of their long-awaited new full-length, the trek
will punish twenty-six cities, coming to a close on June 22nd in Tampa, Florida. Support
will come from Cleveland metallic hardcore legends, Ringworm, and Milwaukee morose punk
metal perpetrators, Enabler. The mammoth roadside takeover follows EYEHATEGOD’s previously
announced string of live incursions later this month which includes an appearance at Three
Floyds Beer’s annual Dark Lord Day Festival and a special performance in Baltimore,
Maryland with High On Fire and Corrosion Of Conformity.
EYEHATEGOD's forthcoming self-titled long player was assembled and financed entirely by
the band and will be released on May 27th, 2014 by Housecore Records. Called, “the record
that EHG fans have been waiting for; a stomping and venomous set of eleven tracks that
reignite the band’s amazing propensity for down-trodden, electric blues and with their
late drummer LaCaze behind the kit,” by Vice Magazine’s music portal, Noisey, Eyehategod
is the band’s first proper release in over a decade. The domestic version of the self-
titled offering will come in a CD digipack while the LP will be a single slab of vinyl in
a gatefold jacket. The first pressing will be limited to 1600 copies and made available in
the following color variations: black (600 copies), purple (300 copies), clear (400
copies), purple and grey (300 copies).

Sweet! Enabler is a good opening band but not sure about Ringworm. Might try and make the Philly dates if I can.
People are losing their crap all over my Facebook friends list about the Erie and Rochester dates.
The guy who booked the Erie show usually books much smaller bands, so it's especially
exciting...there are never really any shows in Erie
Can't believe they're playing a show in Appleton, WI, either. How often do they get shows over Milwaukee or Madison?
I'll go to that Boston show if I can, although I bet my dad won't like their music. Luckily, he's not religious so he at least won't be offended by their name.
Really excited for this one; hoping to go to the Cleveland show.

Your parents still chaperone you to concerts?
enabler =/= crust
Digging: Sheer Mag - Sheer Mag II
I can only imagine the smell at one of those concerts
Digging: Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation
My band has played at Basement Transmissions in Erie countless times. I'm good friends with the owner, super cool guy. I'm for sure going to that.
"Your parents still chaperone you to concerts?"
Dude, I'm only 14, do the math. Late reply, but better late than never.
Was I supposed to know that you're 14 offhand? Most 14-year-olds wouldn't be doing reviews of Neurosis' discography.
I wouldn't expect you to know that, I'm just clarifying. I'll take the Neurosis statement as a compliment though.
