EYEHATEGOD Announces Left To Starve Summer Tour

EYEHATEGOD EYEHATEGOD will kick off a thirty-nine-date US mega tour next month. The Left To Starve summer takeover will commence on August 1st, run through September 13th, and includes performances with Capitalist Casualties, Phobia, Primitive Man, Negative Approach, Antiseen, Cro-Mags, Pig Destroyer, The Obsessed, and Mountain Of Wizard on select dates! The journey also marks frontman Mike IX Williams' lengthiest tour since undergoing liver transplant surgery this past December.

Comments IX Williams, "This band, for better or worse, has endured a mind-numbing and brain-expanding thirty years of making some of the most criminally riff filled and abhorrent sounds ever heard on the planet earth. No middle ground; EYEHATEGOD is either wonderfully loved or instinctively hated. Predicting the future accidentally and preaching the end time message, see the band LIVE now before something else bad happens..."

EYEHATEGOD continues to deafen the masses in support of their self-titled LP which dropped in 2014 via Housecore Records, breaking the band's decade-and-a-half gap since their prior full-length and marking the most successful release of the band's storied history. Consequence Of Sound called the record, "...their most entertaining release since 1996's Dopesick... urgent and raw, as if the band hasn't aged a day," Pitchfork gushed, "they've come out swinging, armed with yet another of their often-renewed leases on life and still spoiling for a fight. That EyeHateGod exists at all is a miracle in and of itself, but the fact that it is so damn great is simply extraordinary." Added Metal Injection, "in terms of consistency and sheer 'fuck yeah!'-ness. this is right up there in that first tier of must have EYEHATEGOD platters. Welcome back, boys. You earned it."

In related news, EYEHATEGOD's Take As Needed For Pain full-length (1993) recently earned the #92 spot on Rolling Stone Magazine's 100 Greatest Metal Albums Of All Time list, the esteemed publication noting, "Standouts, such as 'Blank' and the title track hammer the listener with turbulent riffs before downshifting into heaving swing rhythms that drive home the band's fluency in the funkier aspects of NOLA's musical culture. 'Sister Fucker (Pt. 1),' meanwhile, marries vile imagery with hip-shaking boogie rock. The band found the perfect foil in engineer Robinson Mills, whose warm, no-frills tones complemented Williams' acrid screech, the menacing swells of feedback on tracks like "30$ Bag" and unsettling police-scanner-inspired noise piece 'Disturbance.' While bands such as Crowbar and the Southern supergroup Down (which features EYEHATEGOD guitarist Jimmy Bower behind the drums) would also serve as able ambassadors for New Orleans metal, none of them would capture the city's seedy rebel spirit quite as effectively as EYEHATEGOD did here."

The band will be celebrating their thirtieth anniversary next year. Stay tuned for special releases to be announced in the future.
