Atlanta-based sludge slingers SONS OF TONATIUH today officially kick off their U.S. Summer tour. Set to commence tonight in Knoxville, Tennessee, the Beckoning The End Tour will rampage through 16 cities throughout July, August and September with more dates to be added soon.
SONS OF TONATIUH will be touring in support of their Parade Of Sorrow full-length. Called, “a savagely aggressive, sonically belligerent album that is among the rawest to emerge from the southern USA in the last decade,” by This Is Not A Scene and fondly compared to “a plague of locusts swarming for the attack,” by Creative Loafing, Parade Of Sorrow was released through Hydro-Phonic Records last month and offers up nearly forty minutes of gritty, Southern-fried dirgey deliciousness. The follow-up to 2010’s self-titled LP was recorded in Athens, Georgia by Kyle Spence of Harvey Milk and features artwork by Chris Parry. A must-have for fans of Eyehategod, Buzzov*en, Floor and the like.
Additionally, the band will appear on the Southwest Terror Fest, a two-day auditory assault organized by Arizona sludge terrorists Godhunter. Set to take place on October 19th and 20th, 2012, the debauchery-ridden shenanigans will include over thirty local and nationally-based acts, some on tour and others specific to this event.
