Well, this is pretty much the coolest thing ever, and it’s definitely happening 3,000 miles from where I live. Thanks a lot, guys. Wow, hey, another great show in San Francisco and Los Angeles and Seattle. That’s so amazing, because you never see anything there. Oh wait, you see everything there. Stupid California (and in this case, Washington). Not enough that you have the fourth largest economy in the world and enough natural resources to sustain the entire planet, you have to have Goatsnake too? Fuckers.
The PR wire mocks my lame New Jersey ass with the following:
Running from August 8th through 12th, the three-show tour features Southern Lord artists Eagle Twin, Black Breath and the return of Goatsnake. All of this is in addition to the headliner for the festivities; the recently reunited circa-1986 Animosity album lineup of Corrosion of Conformity, featuring Woody Weatherman on guitar, Mike Dean on bass and vocals, and Reed Mullin on drums! The tour will also showcase openers Righteous Fool featuring Mike and Reed from C.O.C.
The string of dates kick off in Los Angeles at the Southern Lord sponsored The Power Of The Riff Festival, featuring this tour’s full lineup as well as countless other brutal acts including Repulsion, Trap Them, Nails, From Ashes Rise and more. The full lineup and info behind the fest will be announced soon.
