Tucson sludgetroopers GODHUNTER recently wrapped-up filming a self-financed video for their crushing anthem “Wolves Of The North.”
After making its initial appearance on the band’s 2011-released Wolves EP, more recently “Wolves Of The North” reared its ugly head on GODHUNTER’s self-released split 7” with hometown cohorts Inoculara. The split was pressed on off-white wax, with cover artwork by Matt “Zip” Howard, and interior art by Hoss, limited to only three-hundred hand-numbered copies. The video is currently going through final edits in preparation for its release in January.
The “Wolves Of The North” video will be released just in time for GODHUNTER’s newly-confirmed 2013 Winter Tour, sponsored by Acid Reflux Records and Earsplit. Broken into multiple treks between mid-January and mid-March, the quartet will thunder through the Southwestern states and then head back down towards the Gulf Coast, on their way to raid SXSW 2013 for several dates before trekking back to Arizona. Further confirmations will be announced as the dates are finalized in the coming weeks.

The band will enter Arcane Digital Studios in Chandler, Arizona (Exhumed, Misery Index, Phobia) this Summer with producer Ryan Butler (Landmine Marathon, Unruh) to record City Of Dust; a concept album about life and death in a decaying desert shithole of a hometown.
