Atlanta sludge merchants, SONS OF TONATIUH are about to embark upon a fourth U.S. tour this January in support of their self-titled debut full-length. The mighty Hollow Leg from Jacksonville, Florida will be joining the band for the first three shows . After that, the band will be tearing its way across through New Orleans and back around through Shreveport before winding down in Chattanooga, Tennessee with the likes of Hot Graves, Death Before Dying, Car On Fire, Cognitive Dissonance, Currents and Black Pussy among others.

"We'll try and keep the church burning down to a minimum as we continually raise the dead of our ancestors through our witchcraft," said the band in a collective statement. "So come out see what we're all about and we'll promise to deliver a good time." SONS OF TONATIUH were recently privileged enough to open for the legendary Eyehategod at the Earl on December 4 in Atlanta. The show went off without a hitch and SONS played a stellar set in front of a massive audience.
The band -- drummer Tim Genius, guitarist/vocalist Dan Caycedo, bassist Mike Tunno and guitarist/vocalist Darby Wilson -- unleashed their debut via Michigan's Hyodro-Phonic Records earlier this year. Engineered by Jay Matheson (Kylesa, Black Tusk, Dark Castle) at the legendary Jam Room Studios in Columbia, South Carolina. The crushing eight-track long player features the artwork of Rodney Githens and is available on CD as well as blue and gold-colored wax.
Hellride called the record, "...a damn anvil being dropped on your head type of heavy," Brooklyn Vegan agreed crowning it, "a merciless onslaught of down-tuned misanthropic riffs," and Fuzzrock added: "A killer album of sludgy goodness, this comes recommended for those who dig Eyehategod, Iron Monkey, Sourvein, and their ilk, but are burnt out on copy cat bands. These guys bring something different to the table with each song, and for that, I commend them."
