Northern Virginia-based DRUGS OF FAITH, with members of Enemy Soil, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, and more, has announced a short run of Northeastern US tour dates for April, supporting their Decay EP, which saw release last fall through Selfmadegod Records.
With five ripping new songs, Decay marks DRUGS OF FAITH’s first full studio release since 2013’s Architectural Failures, delivering a solid dose of the band’s patented and methodical mid-paced grinding rock riddled with calculated aggression and infectious hooks. Decay was recorded with Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations in Baltimore (Full Of Hell, Magrudergrind) and mastered by JC Griffin at Lakebottom Recording (Cloud Rat, Ceremony Of Senses, Blind Haven).
Following short bursts of live shows surrounding the EP’s release, DRUGS OF FAITH announces their fist short tour of the new year. April 17th, 18th, and 19th will see the band playing across the Northeastern US with shows in Baltimore, Ottisville, and Brooklyn, the Pennsylvania performance as part of the V.O.S. 2020 Fest. See the new dates below and watch for new shows to post over the weeks ahead.
