Aussies Slug Guts are here, and will kick of a North American tour at Bruar Falls in Brooklyn TONIGHT (3/11) with The Surprisers, Dutch Treat, and Brett and the Whisperers. It's their only NYC show before they head off to Texas for a stint in Austin at SXSW. After SXSW the band will duke it out with NYC again, this time on 3/23 at Death By Audio with Bogan Dust, Blank Realm, and The Dreebs.
For those of you heading to Austin, you can catch Slug Guts at any number of parties including the Sacred Bones/Chaos In Tejas/Stereogum party at Beerland on March 17th. There the band will be joined by Altaar (who is playing NYC this weekend too), Liturgy, Human Eye, Chelsea Wolfe, and many others including an exclusive performance by Zola Jesus. Show flyer is below.
Slug Guts take notes from their dark post-punk countrymen The Birthday Party on their new Howlin' Gang LP. The record, released by Sacred Bones on Feb 22nd, is currently available on CD and LP. Check out a stream of the track "Howlin'", a video and all dates, below...
