After a short touring break following their massive assault with Napalm Death and Municipal Waste amidst a solid year of touring, gore metal purveyors EXHUMED will take their sonic raucousness to the streets once again this week. This time the road warriors will be systematically blasting their home state of California alongside grind cohorts Phobia; the frenzy will begin tomorrow, February 15th in Lancaster, followed by beatings in San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Fullerton, Ventura, Santa Cruz, Modesto, Lake Tahoe and San Francisco on the nine city assault.
Stated notorious quotesmith/founding EXHUMED dude Matt Harvey on the affair: “We haven’t played a show in… well; it’s been over a month, so things have been way too quiet. So we’re psyched to get into some of the nooks and crannies of the golden state with our old buddies in Phobia. We’ve totally re-vamped our set, and we’ll be rolling out a track from the new record this time around as well, so the show will be all new even for our friends and family locally who’ve been subjected to our racket a few times recently already. We’ve been talking about getting on the road with Shane the pain and crew for a long time, so this little jaunt is well overdue. We hope to see a bunch of mutants, maniacs, earth dogs, rivet heads, gorehounds, toe cutters and eye gougers out there on the road! Cheers! – Matt and the usual gang of idiots,”
Additionally, a massive feature with Harvey was also just featured on MetalSucks, where he discusses his outrageous devotion to Metallica; check it out here.
