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 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.

All of WEEDEATER’s albums are now available at fine record stores nationwide and online at the WEEDEATER Bandcamp page.
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. For more on WEEDEATER, follow their official FACEBOOK, TWITTER, and INSTAGRAM pages.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since nothing has changed in terms of my overall exposure to the band since the last time around I will keep this section brief. I didn’t end up making that appearance at the Gramercy Theatre with Corrosion of Conformity but it was a scheduling issue for me at the end of the day. I’d like to try and catch this “Desertfest” event that is listed for Vitus but as always it has to be cleared and I need to see what else is going on around it. Let’s see what happens and as I close this one up I wonder what you readers think about it all. Are you diehard converts to this bands cause yet? Chime in down below as you are the folks that I need to hear from. See you next time right back here with more stuff. Since we are just under a month away from the websites 14th Anniversary, I can only state that there is going to be a lot coming down the pike as we quest to keep on entertaining you. Ciao.
