WEEDEATER: New Album Title Announced

North Carolina's sludge pillagers WEEDEATER have set "Jason...The Dragon" as the title of their fourth album, tentatively due this fall via Southern Lord Recordings. The CD will be recorded starting late April with producer Steve Albini (NIRVANA, NEUROSIS, PIXIES) at his Electrical Audio studio in Chicago, Illinois.

WEEDEATER — in light of the recent loss of frontman Dave "Dixie" Collins' toe due to a self-inflicted gun-cleaning wound — has announced the routing for its upcoming U.S. tour, now officially dubbed the "Nine Toe" tour. The month-long trek kicks off a week before this year's South By Southwest (SXSW), where WEEDEATER will headline the Tone Deaf Touring showcase on March 20. Support bands for the tour include BLACK COBRA, ASG, BLACK TUSK, THE GATES OF SLUMBER, US CHRISTMAS, and STRUCK BY LIGHTNING.
