Never ones for sitting still too long, North Carolina sludgers Weedeater will head out in their relative back yard next month, stomping their way around the Southeastern US as they continue to support their 2015 Season of Mist label debut, Goliathan (review here). Their fifth album, it was a record that underscored the rolling, consuming riffs that have made Weedeater nothing less than an institution since their late-’90s inception, and the crusty edge they’ve been able to maintain in their approach while adding in more daring elements to their sound like melody, brooding bluegrass banjo, and so on.
You don’t need me to tell you to go see Weedeater if they’re coming through your town. It’s a given. They’ll be out with in the familiar company of ASG for a lot of these shows as well, so yeah. Dig in.
From the PR wire:
