Eyehategod Tap Withered For Some June Shows
Withered, have been tapped to support the notorious Eyehategod for a handful of shows in June. Nachtmystium also appear on most dates.
The band had been off the road since last summer's "Blackened Fest," with MAYHEM, but in mid-March did a mini-tour to Texas, where they appeared at Prosthetic's official South By Southwest Showcase and a party in Austin, and Brofest in Dallas.
Guitarist/vocalist Mike Thompson commented on the March: "We had a couple of shows before and after SXSW. We stopped at 'The Barin Metairie, LA on the way down. It was our first show since last August so we were very eager to perform. The show was great. The next day was SXSW then we headed down to San Antonio the next day. We were fortunate to meet up with our friends in Javelina & Howl. Great bands. The crowd was great despite being small. Then, we headed up to Dallas to play at Brofest. It was a mix between metal bands and indie rock on two stages. It was a great event and we received great crowd response. Overall, the entire trip was very successful. Well, outside of having to replace our trailer axle in Austin. We can't wait to get back out on the road, especially with new material."
