"These Midwestern weirdos have a real knack for crafting some of the most out-there noise-core imaginable. Whether it's teaming up with the "God of Noise" Merzbow, for the Merzbannon project, or crafting a rock opera centered on somebody who makes a pact with the devil to become a transsexual rock star, these guys certainly know how to push the limits of extreme music and get under your skin.... [Verbicide]"

Racebannon are hitting the road in late April, tagging a pair of shows in NYC including Saint Vitus on April 24th with Vaz and Guardian Alien and Cake Shop on April 25th with White Suns and Zulus. Full tour schedule is below.
