It was just about a month ago when I shared some news about the Season Of Mist Records artist Weedeater (seen HERE). Since I’ve been trying to broaden our readership in other territories I figured that keeping up with the band’s adventures outside of my own media perimeter was a good idea. Let’s check it out.
The Press Release:
Cape Fear metal legends WEEDEATER have announced a slew of U.S. headliner tour dates this upcoming April. The trek will kick off on April 14 in the band’s homestate of North Carolina in Raleigh and will conclude on April 30 in Richmond, VA. WEEDEATER will be joined by very special guests on various dates, including ASG (April 14, 29-30), BEITTHEMEANS (April 14-18), THE SKULL (April 18-27), HIGH TONE SON OF A BITCH (April 19-25), and Black Cobra (April 25).

Check it out down below and know that I will return at the close.

It seemed like just the other day that I found myself watching Motorhead deliver a crushing set of Heavy Rock & Roll during the “Masters Of Metal” tour. I’m sure if you are a Metal head of the most discerning type that you remember or even attended that tour which found Motorhead on the same stage with Testament, Heaven and Hell and the mighty Judas Priest. If you missed that one, well I can honestly just say that you missed one hell of an event and that’s a shame since a lineup like that one does not get put together all that often. So here we were a little over a month and a half later as one of the loudest Rock and Roll bands alive was doing a short headlining tour. The tour was originally supposed to feature both Airborne and The Misfits but something changed a few weeks before that took Airborne off the list and it was shortly after that when we learned that The Misfits would also no longer be participating. This depressed me a bit as I have enjoyed what I heard from Airborne, but The Misfits would be performing at B.B. King’s on Halloween so I could easily catch them on a night that would be more appropriate. By the time I attended the show the lineup was set as ASG, Year Long Disaster and Valient Thorr as the opening acts for Motorhead and while the main attraction is an SPV Records artist, all of the other groups come care of Volcom Entertainment.
