In what is sure to be a misery-laden undertaking of unbridled sonic battery, two of the absolute sludgiest bands, Fistula and Come To Grief, are uniting on tour. That trek will come in the form of the pair’s upcoming May 2018 U.S. tour together.
This soul-crushing journey will commence on May 1st in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and trample thirteen venues through May 13th in Portland, Maine. Cough, Midmourner, and No Funeral are to appear on select shows. See confirmed dates below.
Fistula recently issued the first wave of an ongoing split 7″ series celebrating twenty years of sonic battery. Released via PATAC Records, the first two installments find Fistula sharing wax space with Come To Grief and -(16)-.
The band’s split with Come To Grief features two original and categorically scathing unreleased tracks while the second features -(16)- ‘s cover of “Complications” by Killing Joke and Fistula‘s rendition of “Mongoloid,” by Devo.
Each limited edition seven-inch is available in various color variants (all clear vinyl is sold out). The Come To Grief / FISTULA split is also available on cassette. To order, visit this location.
