Orange Goblin are pure rock n' roll... feared, respected and mentioned in whispers by awed rock fans and youngsters across the world. Orange Goblin are the modern UK metal heroes who never give up and always keep kicking ass. Back with their first live album, the pants-seat scorching A EULOGY FOR THE FANS (Candlelight), "The Goblin" just get better with age. Seriously, could this band be any more awesome? I think not.

North Carolina sludge demons, Weedeater, having enjoyed the last few months off the road, have decided that it’s time for another headlining North American tour for September/October in support of their recently-released latest full-length, “Jason… The Dragon”.
The mayhem of sludge shall begin in Raleigh, North Carolina on September 6 and continue its sludge-a-licious rampage through thirty-two American cities before closing out in Savannah, Georgia on October 14. While Weedeater’s caustic style of aggressive sludge is devastating on its own live, the trio have enlisted some help on this rampage from Saviours, Bison b.c. and Fight Amp to supply opening support for the duration of the venture. Saviours will not play the Philly or Brooklyn shows, but Oxbow will be supplying direct support for Weedeater at the Brooklyn gig.

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.”Add to My Radar
North Carolina sludge metal outfit Weedeater have announced the details for their fourth full length album titled “Jason… the Dragon.” The band has suffered numerous delays on the recording of the new album including vocalist “Dixie” Dave Collins blowing off his big toe with his favorite shotgun.
