Weedeater Announce Tour with Zeke and Sierra; Playing Maryland Doom Fest & Electric Funeral Fest

So Weedeater are playing Maryland Doom Fest 2018, headlining the final night of the thing on June 24. In true Weedeater fashion, they’re using this as the launch point for a 30-date run alongside reignited speedrockers Zeke and about-to-have-the-adventure-of-a-lifetime outfit Sierra. Because, hey, if you’re playing one show, you might as well play 30, right? Anybody??

Well, to be fair, in addition to MDDF, they’ll be at Electric Funeral Fest in Denver a few nights later, so it’s not just the one fest appearance, but you get the point, and the point is that Weedeater just keep touring. Every time they come off the road — they were just in Europe playing God Luck and Good Speed in full at Roadburn as they did on a US run this past February — I think maybe they’ll head back into the studio, but nope, they’re just waiting to announce the next tour, the next destination. Destination: everywhere.

Going coast to coast in the interim and even heading up to Vancouver, they start in Maryland and finish even closer to home in the Paris of the South, as the PR wire confirms:
