Weedeater and ASG announce U.S. tour

Weedeater and ASG have announced a four-week tour across the United States, kicking off in Savannah, Ga. at The Jinx.

The tour comes as ASG celebrate their highest charting and most critically acclaimed album to date, the breakthrough release Blood Drive.  The twelve-song collection landed at #15 on Billboard’s Heat Seeker chart and also had impressive debuts on the trade magazine’s Hard Music (#32) and Indie (#67) charts.

Stereogum said “Blood Drive is a heavy album, no question, but it’s primarily a catchy album, full of resin-sticky summertime metal.”  Revolver called the album “a catchy, melodic triumph of heavy music,” while Alternative Press asserted that “mentioning ASG in the same breath as riff-rockers Torche or Queens of the Stone Age is not only misleading, it might even be an understatement.”  Artist Direct went even further saying “every now and again a band puts out a record that changes the tides for them” and continued by describing Blood Drive as a “tipping point moment.”

Fellow North Carolinians Weedeater recently performed at Maryland Death Fest and are currently featured in the premiere episode of Noisey’s Heavy Dicks series (http://youtu.be/nze_JpRrksQ). The band is currently working on a follow-up to 2011’s Jason‚Ķ The Dragon.
