Weedeater IS touring w/ Down/Melvins (& Evil Army) (dates)

by Black Bubblegum

DOWNLOAD: Weedeater – “God Luck & Good Speed” (MP3)


It’s official… As previously discussed, Down, Melvins, and Weedeater WILL team up for a tour with Canada getting Voivod (!!!) while the US will split Danava and Evil Army (NYC gets Evil Army). Tickets for the Nokia Theater show on 9/11 are on sale and full tour dates are below.

Southern doom gods Weedeater recently released their 2007 album God Luck & Good Speed on LP via Southern Lord. Dixie Dave of Weedeater first came into the public eye as a member of the legendary southern doom troupe Buzzov*en, but went on to play bass in Bongzilla and his cousin T-Roy’s band Sourvein before forming Weedeater. Dixie Dave also plays with Hail! Hornet with T-Roy.

Voivod, who counts former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted as a studio member, released their final album Infini on Relapse last week. The album marks the final release for the band and the last material written by founding member Dennis “Piggy” D’Amour before his untimely passing.

Phil Anselmo’s (of Down) bandmate in Arson Anthem (with Mike Williams of Eyehategod) and the now-defunct Superjoint Ritual, Hank III, recently played Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Bassist Bones of Evil Army recently passed away.
