EYEHATEGOD released A History of Nomadic Behavior in March via Century Media Records. The record followed a period that saw the band on the road for three years, preceded by vocalist Mike IX Williams suffering liver failure and a transplant. The album was produced by Eyehategod, Sanford Parker (Yob, Voivod), and James Whitten (Thou, High On Fire), with mixing by Whitten. The band recorded at HighTower Recording and Hypercube Studios.
EYEHATEGOD is the snarling, bilious sound of dead-end America. Since 1988, they’ve been a soundtrack for the troubled masses. Pitchfork dubbed them the, “quintessential Southern sludge band,” Rolling Stone crowned them one of, “America’s great live bands,” while Thrasher called them, “true musical pioneers in every sense of the word.” Anyone familiar with EYEHATEGOD‘s trajectory knows this is survivor’s music, a sound unto itself where Sabbathian riffs are meted out with a caustic anger that goes beyond punk. That’s been the blueprint since guitarist Jimmy Bower (also of NOLA supergroup, Down) founded the band in 1988 with vocalist Michael IX Williams joining not long after. With a discography including sludge-punk mainstays like In The Name Of Suffering (1990), Take As Needed For Pain (1993) Dopesick (1996), Confederacy Of Ruined Lives (2000), and 2014’s eponymous LP, released in the US through Housecore Records, EYEHATEGOD laid the cracked foundation for their infamous and influential sound. The band is rounded out by bassist Gary Mader and drummer Aaron Hill.
