SONS OF TONATIUH: U.S. Tour To Commence Today!

Atlanta's SONS OF TONATIUH are set to kick off their fourth U.S. tour today in support of their self-titled debut full-length. The band will hit Stay True Tattoo in St. Augustine, Florida tonight with Hollow Leg and pillage its way through more than a week's worth of dates before winding down in Jackson, Tennessee at Fishguts Farm. SONS OF TONATIUH will be joined by several bands throughout the trek including Hot Graves, Death Before Dying, Car On Fire, Cognitive Dissonance, Currents and Black Pussy. Click here for all dates.

Said the band in a collective statement: "The life expectancy of this planet in terms of the human mind is infinite. We are small minded parasites devouring a dirtball of filth. Traveling through time it is our ancestors that knew the true meaning of life and the consequences of our actions. The final plague will soon wash over us all. SONS OF TONATIUH is part of that plague. We tour to incite riots. Let the riots begin...."

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 later in 2010. Engineered by Jay Matheson (Kylesa, Black Tusk, Dark Castle) at the legendary Jam Room Studios in Columbia, South Carolina, The devouring eight-track long player features the artwork of Rodney Githens and is available on CD as well as blue and gold-colored wax.
