The maniacally unhinged maestros of southern sludge, North Carolina’s WEEDEATER, announces a December mini-tour of U.S. east coast live dates.
Currently consisting of five dates in total, the jaunt will serve as a warm-up to the band’s upcoming trek with Corrosion Of Conformity, Crowbar, and Mothership. That excursion, dubbed the “A Quest To Believe – A Call To The Void“ Tour, launches in January 2019 and sees WEEDEATER supporting the first leg of the run. The Obsessed will then join the package in WEEDEATER‘s slot for the second leg. Find all those dates HERE.
For all of the upcoming live performances from WEEDEATER, it is expected that band members “Dixie” Dave Collins (vocals/bass) and Dave “Shep” Shepherd (guitar) will be rejoined by drummer Travis “T-Boogie” Owen.
On August 24th of this year, the band’s drummer at the time, Carlos Denogean, unexpectedly passed away from a brain aneurysm. A GoFundMe campaign to assist Denogean’s surviving family members can be found at this LINK. Please help if you can.
