Two bands that represent the U.S. stoner doom set, West Virginia occult rockers BRIMSTONE COVEN and Illinois power metal unit SPILLAGE, announce they will unite for a tour this August.
The “Blood And Hellfire Tour 2019” will see the pair playing their sonic wares mainly in the American southeast and midwest regions. Both acts will be continuing live support for their latest releases; BRIMSTONE COVEN for their third album, 2018’s ‘What Was And What Shall Be‘, and SPILLAGE for their sophomore effort, ‘Blood Of Angels‘, released earlier this year. You can listen to both albums in their entirety below.
For many people outside of the vicinity of the U.S. Eastern seaboard, this will be their first opportunity to see BRIMSTONE COVEN on stage since the band was streamlined. A trio now comprised of Corey Roth (guitar and vocals), Andrew D’Cagna (bass and vocals), and Dave Trik (drums), the line up that recorded the 2018 record, have taken their initial sound to all-new levels. Their music still possesses the band’s vintage essence and retro leanings at its core, while expanding new dynamics in their songwriting and vocally.
On the other end of the sound spectrum is Chicago’s blues and doom-fused, metal powerhouse SPILLAGE. The band, Elvin Rodriguez (vocals), Tony Spillman (guitars), Nick Bozidarevic (guitars), Billy McGuffey (bass), Chris Martins (drums), and Paul Rau (keyboards), channel classic metal influences with contemporary ferocity. With strong musicianship and talent second to none, the band delivers unforgettable live performances laden with that unmistakable Windy City sound at its deepest core.
Discover all of this for yourself in August when you get out and catch BRIMSTONE COVEN and SPILLAGE on the road together!
