Weedeater at The Studio at Webster Hall (more by Markus Shaffer)

After over a year of literally crippling injuries to all three of WEEDEATER's members hitting the headlines, including infamous classics like "Dixie Dave blew off part of his foot with a shotgun," or "Keko tore his meniscus this week," and "Shep broke his goddamn pinkie on tour" or even "Dixie nearly died in his ninja-scuba assassin Halloween costume" and more, the band still forged on through these blows for multiple tours -- several regional and national headlining tours, as well as supporting Down and The Melvins -- to finally complete [their new] record. Although delayed by eight months, the haggard trio infiltrated Steve Albini's Electrical Audio Studio in Chicago this past September to pound out Jason... The Dragon.

As with their Southern Lord debut God Luck And Good Speed, the Jason... album was mastered by the legendary John Golden at Golden Studios in southern California, unearthing the true grit that this band dumps forth. [press release]

Weedeater will begin their trek towards Jason... The Dragon, due on March 15th via Southern Lord, when they hit the road in late February. BrooklynVegan is proud to present the Jason... The Dragon US Tour with ASG and then Zoroaster that will include stops at SXSW and in NYC on February 24th at Santos Party House (with ASG). Tickets for the NYC show will be on sale soon.

All dates, some videos, the tour flyer, and the new album tracklist and Arik Roper-created cover art, below...
