Weedeater Band PictureMonths after announcing a new album and starting a tour, doom rockers Weedeater are packing it in due to a hand injury to guitarist Dave Shepard.

Record label Southern Lord issued the official statement on the state of Weedeater and the rest of the tour:

“Guitarist Shep broke his hand and can no longer wield his mighty axe of six strings for the remaining four shows including Orlando (tonight), Atlanta, Spartanburg and Savannah; tour mates Zoroaster will still play the Orlando and Atlanta shows. But, as with every previous injury this band has sustained — while on or off of tour – Shep will heal his mangled bones and they’ll get back out there to hit you all with a dose of their inhumanly heavy live show once again in the near future.

Also, Weedeater’s upcoming European tour and appearance at Roadburn 2011 are still happening, so Europe, get ready to get pummeled. Weedeater raged for every single day since embarking on the tour in mid February, in support of their newest album Jason… The Dragon, including inciting some massive liver/ear damage to the masses at SXSW this past week, and with many of the shows on the tour completely sold-out.”

    Indeed, for a tank, a warmogs is a good cchioe too, but if one thinks beyond, a tank receives additional life of many items, and the additional regeneration, it can be made completely from a force of nature. Frozen Mallet?, a character like ramus or any other tank can reach an enemy, and slow him, more cc then?, it’s a good cchioe too, everything depends on the way you play with the character.O.o!!! P.D: sry for the english!!!!
