Baton Rouge sludge metal greats Thou will go on tour this summer in continued support of last year's Heathen, with Minneapolis black metallers False opening.

The tour hits NYC twice, first for a Saint Vitus show on July 31, and then for a matinee at ABC No Rio (8/1) the next day. Advance tickets for Vitus are on sale now. After that run, Thou will go on a collaborative tour with The Body in support of their collaborative album, You, Whom I Have Always Hated. All dates (with more TBA) are listed below.

Speaking of False, they finally followed their 2012 split with Barghest (who have members of Thou) with their first full length last week. Like their 2011 EP, it's untitled, and out now on Gilead Media. You can stream the full thing below.
