1349 Tap Job For A Cowboy Drummer For Upcoming Tour
Swedish black metal legends MARDUK are hitting the road with 1349, WITHERED and WEAPON for a string of North American dates that commence in early June. This marks 1349's first activity on this continent since 2010, when they supported CANNIBAL CORPSE and TRIPTYKON on separate treks. Frontman Ravn comments on the group's impending return, which will see JOB FOR A COWBOY's Jon "The Charn" Rice filling in on drums for the band:
"After touring North America at least once a year, this tradition was broken in 2011, so it is with honor we accepted the invitation from Marduk to tour with them. We look forward to once again cross this continent and spread our Aural Hellfire."
The tour will include one headline performance at The Glass House in Pomona, Calif. on June 18. Tickets go on sale Saturday. After wrapping up the tour in San Diego two nights later, the group will travel to Chile, where they will perform at Santiago's Club 334 on June 23rd.
