Last time we talked about Eyehategod it was to bring you the news that the band had postponed its Australian and Mexican tour dates because of vocalist Mike IX Williams’ mental stability and health. We hope that those issues are truly resolved, as we want nothing but the best for the legendary vocalist.
Whether or not he’s back to top form, Eyehategod will kick off their Staggering Backwards European takeover next week. Set to embark on March 30th, in Finland, the trek will fester its way through nearly two dozen cities throughout Europe, including stops at the Durbuy Rock Festival in Belgium, Desertfest in the UK, and Roadburn in the Netherlands where.
While in the Netherlands, both guitarist Jimmy Bower and vocalist Mike IX Williams will appear on a special Q&A panel April 10th, to discuss Noisey’s NOLA: Life, Death And Heavy Blues From The Bayou documentary. Released last year, the fascinating seven-part series explores the people and culture that helped spawn the Crescent City’s now-legendary hotbed of talent. A full screening of the documentary will follow the Q&A as part of Roadburn Cinema. For further info go here.
In related Eyehategod tour news, the band will return to the West Coast in May to deafen ears on day one of Psycho California in Santa Ana, California, alongside Atriarch, Author & Punisher, Old Man Gloom, Cough, and more. The following month the band will return to France for Hellfest 2015 with additional onstage abrasions being conspired.
