DOOMSTRESS ‘How The West Was Doomed’ Tour With DISENCHANTER

Article By: Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker ‡ Edited By: Leanne Ridgeway

Never ones to sit idle and rest upon their laurels, Texas’ heavy doom unit Doomstress are gearing up for some major touring actions soon. First, April will see the band unite with their DHU Records label mates Disenchanter for the ‘How The West Was Doomed‘ trek.

The pair will lay waste to many locales within the western U.S. together, beginning April 4th in Colorado Springs, CO. The tour will culminate with an incredible one-off for Doomstress only on the apropos 4/20 date in Austin. That tour-ending date will see them play alongside The Shrine, Jex Thoth, and Duel at The Barracuda.

A couple of weeks rest and then Doomstress will head out on their own headlining jaunt dubbed the ‘May-Day! Mayhem! Tour‘. That mid-May run will see the band zigzagging across the central & midwest U.S., as they share stages with acts like Spacetrucker, The Judge, Thorr-Axe, Iron Tongue, Stone Machine Electric, Forming The Void, and others.

The Doomstress line up for these live excursions is:

Doomstress Alexis – bass / vox
Brandon Johnson – lead & rhythm guitar
Matt Taylor- (touring) rhythm & lead guitar
April drum duties by Andy Kaos Vehnekamp (Texas Massacre / Supergrave / ex-DRI)

May drum duties by Alex Erhardt (The Scourge)
