We seem to be getting a metric ton of newsworthy tour announcements from the fine folks over at Season Of Mist Records and since they have an absolutely wonderful wealth of that which be heavy, I will share them as soon as my writing itinerary permits me to do so. That being said, here is a brief about the Stoner Metal act Weedeater. Dig in.

WEEDEATER was formed by front-man/bassist “Dixie” Dave Collins. Following the release of their 2001 debut ‘…And Justice For Y’All’, WEEDEATER immediately established themselves as a force in the U.S. tour circuit and quickly gained notoriety in the American metal scene. In the time since, the band have released three critically-acclaimed albums: ‘Sixteen Tons’ (2002), ‘God Luck And Good Speed’ (2007), and ‘Jason… The Dragon’ (2011), and toured around the world with the likes of DOWN, SAINT VITUS, HIGH ON FIRE, and THE MELVINS, HANK III, EARTH, SUNN O))) and more. The band has played prestigious festivals such as Maryland Deathfest, Hopscotch Festival, Stoned From The Underground, Asymmetry Festival, Roadburn Festival, Hellfest, and many more.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told I am not all that up on the music of Weedeater and historically speaking, I don’t think that I’ve even caught them in concert yet but perhaps the regular deluge of my day is making me slightly forgettful as I type this announcement for you. The band is not hitting my neck of the woods with this run but if they manage to make it over here in the soonish I’m going to try and be more on point. They sure are on a prolific label that keeps their fans in the heavy music genre fandom quite happy in terms of regular music releases and concert tours. What do you folks think about this one? Is the band coming to a club near you or have you seen them before? Chime in down below in the comments section since its always good to hear from you. Until next time.
