Dixie Dave of Weedeater at Europa (more by BBG)

BrooklynVegan is proud to present the inaugural US tour of Hail! Hornet, the Southern supergroup consisting of "Dixie" Dave Collins (Weedeater, Buzzov*en), Erik Larson (Alabama Thunderpussy, Parasytic), Vince Burke (Beaten Back to Pure) and T-roy Medlin (Sourvein, Buzzov*en). The quartet recently released their second LP Disperse The Curse via Relapse and you can stream it in its entirety below.

In addition, the tour will feature TWO other notable appearances: Zoroaster (who play NYC next week with Black Cobra) and a screening of the excellent Slow Southern Steel which was directed by CT of Rwake (and which made its East Coast debut in August). Full tour dates are below, including Europa in Brooklyn on 2/8. Tickets for that show are $15/17 DOS and will be on sale soon.

If you missed it, Rwake's Rest made both the Decibel and Pitchfork favorites of the year.

This name is just a ripoff of the Hail! metal band with Tim "Ripper" Owens and Mike Portnoy.

This band was formed before "Ripoff" Owens' band.

Look, knowledge is the key to sustainability. If there was a way to PROVE green energy and alternative energy works beyond a reasonable doubt, Congress would have the knowledge to do the right thing. That what we preach at Basic Fuels.
