Canadian heavy cosmic rockers WHITENAILS have announced an imminent U.S. touring cycle they will be participating on.
They will be providing direct support to an upcoming eastern U.S. co-headlining trek from WHORES. and BLACK TUSK. The run will see the trio (or most of them) appearing at several festivals along the way, including the Riff Relevant-sponsored RPM FEST in Western Massachusetts, plus Stoned Meadow Of Doom Fest and the inaugural Heavy Mountain Fest in Asheville, North Carolina this September.
WHITENAILS‘ 2017 debut, “First Trip“, was a smashing success that continues to win folks over with each new introduction to it or the band. We are including a stream of it here, just in case you somehow missed this amazing record.
You can find the tour itinerary below and don’t forget, WHITENAILS will be contributing their cover of “Waiting For The Worms” to Magnetic Eye Records‘ upcoming dual-album Pink Floyd tribute “The Wall [Redux]“. Other bands adding reinterpretations include ASG, Melvins, Howling Giant, Ruby The Hatchet, Mark Lanegan, Sasquatch, Pallbearer, Mos Generator, and more!
