Gorguts @ Hopscotch Festival - 9/6/13
Reports continue to trickle in from Raleigh, N.C.'s Hopscotch Festival. The metal marched on during Friday (9/6) night with an extremely intimate set at Slim's, featuring Pig Destroyer, Gorguts, Vattnet Viskar, and Brooklyn's own Sannhet. Slim's has a capacity of just 100 people, and either Pig Destroyer or Gorguts could easily have sold the place out.
For Gorguts, the Hopscotch show was part of their short tour, which has come to a close, but they recently told us on the Invisible Oranges East Village Radio show that they're planning some more dates for the end of the year, and they're also confirmed for Maryland Deathfest 2014. Their new album, Colored Sands, is out now and can be streamed below (via Revolver).
Pig Destroyer also recently debuted a new song via Adult Swim. They'll be at Hudson, NY's two-day Basilica Sound Scape festival this Friday (9/13) with Pharmakon, Richard Hell (reading), Evian Christ, Julianna Barwick, and more. Tickets for both days are still available.
