As the still brand-new year kicks into gear the tour announcements start to come in faster and more furiously. Though we are based in NYC there are times when I’ll be helping to broadcast some of the labels we discuss more frequently and that brings us to the latest live adventures of Season Of Mist Records own Weedeater.

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 still pretty “green” about the band and I realize how corny that reads back after I see how it looks all typed up. This particular tour isn’t coming through my own NYC at all, but they will be a part of the COC run which pays us a visit next week. I am not sure that I will be at that show just yet but if I end up there you can count on some thoughts and images right here on the website. I’ve listed some of the bands works down below on Amazon.com for the curious to check out. The folks at Season Of Mist Records are really keeping me busy with announcments and releases and that is fine by me. What do you think about this news? Chime in down below in the comments and I shall see you very soon.
