Grindcore/death instigators, FULGORA, a mutinous collective uniting members of Pig Destroyer, Misery Index, Agoraphobic Nosebleed and Dying Fetus, were recently added to a pair of dates on the forthcoming It Takes Guts tour featuring reactivated metal giants, Superjoint. FULGORA will be crumbling the stages of the tour’s Poughkeepsie, New York and Lancaster, Pennsylvania stops on July 17th and 18th respectively. Additional support will be provided by labelmates King Parrot and Child Bite.
Watch Superjoint frontman/Housecore Records head, Philip H. Anselmo’s comment on the band’s inclusion via a video transmission below.
The Superjoint shows follow FULGORA‘s punishing performance at this year’s Maryland Deathfest and serve as a precursor to their takeover of Full Terror Assault in Cave-In-Rock, Illinois this Fall with supplementary live abrasions in their conspiring stages.

Check out Strategem , still streaming in all its devouring glory at Decibel Magazine at THIS LOCATION. And if you missed it, watch the visual companion to the track, “Meridian,” playing at Metal Injection at THIS LOCATION.
“The death metal angle provided by the curious ferocity of LaMew’s riffing and Adam’s frenetic drumming helps with the forceful intensity of ‘Meridian,’ the Voivod and screamo influence offer dollops of technical flash and surprising melodic strains in ‘Crutch’ and ‘Artifice,’ the grind injects groove everywhere and everyone smiles with bruised and bloodied lips.” – Metal Hammer
“Strategem is the truth. It’s an unfairly hook-y punch to the gut operating under the guise of being too short, when it’s actually a calculated laser-blast of death metal efficiency that every band on the face of the planet should take notes on.” – Last Rites
“If you’re a fan of pissed-off deathgrind and hardcore, then FULGORA are right up your alley. The pummeling riffs combined with frantic blast beats and those Hatebreed-esq vocals are guaranteed to get the mosh pits started early…” – DC Heavymetal
“FULGORA skews far more to the modern hardcore and crossover thrash side of metal. [Guitarist/vocalist B.L.] LaMew’s vocals are not screamed or squealed, but rather shouted. But never fear; FULGORA still serves up quite a helping of jagged time changes and math-metal riffage. These guys probably couldn’t write a completely straightforward song if they tried to.” – Houston Press
