Savannah, Georgia’s Black Tusk have confirmed that they will be appearing at the inaugural “Orion Music + More Festival” curated by Metallica. The festival will be held in Atlantic City, New Jersey at Bader Field on June 23rd and June 24th.
“We are honored to play the first Orion Fest. Metallica has always been an influence for our band. This is yet another contribution they are making for music, not just metal,” says drummer James May.
Black Tusk are preparing to kick off an extensive North American tour starting today in Memphis, TN. This run will feature headlining tour dates with support coming from East of the Wall, label-mates Royal Thunder and Hull, plus a string of dates supporting Prong and select shows with Intronaut and Skeletonwitch in March.
