North Carolina henchmen WEEDEATER today confirm the details on their mammoth five-week American tour, set to begin one month from today. Sponsored by Brooklyn Vegan, the brutal tour will be fully in support of WEEDEATER's upcoming album 'Jason... The Dragon', due out on Southern Lord March 15th, 2011. WEEDEATER will be supported by ASG on the first eight gigs, then by Zoroaster for the majority of the tour. The trek also includes the band's invasion of SXSW in Austin; details on live activities for WEEDEATER and several Southern Lord artists will be announced in the coming days. Check out the full routing here, and view the tour poster for the upcoming assault and more here.
The band's second album for Southern Lord Recordings, 'Jason... The Dragon' was mastered by the legendary John Golden at Golden Studios in southern California, unearthing the true grit that this band dumps forth. With no argument to be had,' Jason...' is by far WEEDEATER's most varied and organic recording to date, taking their caustic, resin-coated sludge to otherworldly new realms of delirium by the band simply taking it all closer to home, integrating acoustic bass, banjo, piano, and sporadic cleaner vocal tactics. This is still WEEDEATER. It's just WEEDEATER at their finest hour yet.
