"Weedeater took the stage in true, drunken form for a performance that blew their Charleston show out of the water. Between fellating the microphone, sipping Robitussin (evidence below) and puking in the trashcan (I think), 'Dixie' Dave's rasp, rumbling bass and cross-eyed stare basically define "sludge". Chugging doom riffs and rolling drums filled out the thick, muddled sound as the band banged out a good mix of old and new(er) material." [a 2010 BV show review]

Another BV sponsored Weedeater trek begins on 9/6 with a tour kickoff in the band's native North Carolina at King's Barcade. The tour then dots the East Coast for a couple of weeks before landing in Chicago at Reggie's on September 17th with Saviours, Bison BC & Fight Amp. Tickets are on sale. All tour dates are listed below.

Saviours have a new LP in Death Procession, due via Kemado on 9/6. BrooklynVegan recently premiered the new song "To The Grave Possessed". Check that out.
