Blues punks The Bobby Lees (Sam Quartin , Kendall Wind , Macky Bowman, Nick Casa) have been tearing it up on stages in Upstate, NY and around the country. While you may recognize Quartin from movie roles like the (forthcoming) Run With The Hunted and Let Me Make You A Martyr , this band is not a novelty project but a full fledged rock n rollercoaster. They totally scorch the stage with a howling sense of purpose and poetic sting, capturing a primal and at times even fun energy on Beauty Pageant . Feral animals and ghosts hiding in the trees agree that this band is the shit. This record and group truly deserve to be heard, so head to their Bandcamp and blast "Deem Em Dead" now. You can say you knew 'em when.

Word to your fuckin’ mom, came to drop bombs…er, bongs?
Cape Fear’s own WEEDEATER are like no other heavy band. With a style and presence that is unfiltered, unrefined, and unruly, the notorious North Carolina trio have burned through the heavy rock underground for over fifteen years. Now, WEEDEATER and Season of Mist bring you ‘…And Justice For Y’All’, a reissue of their classic first album on cd and – for the very first time – on vinyl.
WEEDEATER …And Justice for Y’all Release date: North America September 2, 2014Add to My Radar
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.
Check out the tour dates, the full-size tour poster, and Weedeater’s freshly-baked “Mancoon/Turkey Warlock” video right here.

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
