The members of EYEHATEGOD arrived home from their latest East Coast run of dates earlier this week with varying degrees of injuries — mental, spiritual and physical. Dubbed the “Unchecking Our Already Questionable Health In A Shitty Van Tour 2011,” vocalist Mike Williams, guitarists Jimmy Bower and Brian Patton, bassist Gary Mader and drummer Joey LaCaze, kicked off the festivities in Philadelphia, PA on February 16th and systematically leveled clubs in Baltimore, Brooklyn, Syracuse and Boston before being forced to miss their show in Connecticut due to blizzard-like conditions. Commented Williams of the cancellation: “Due to horribly bad weather, we had to cancel our Milford, Connecticut show on Monday in order to make it back down South. Many apologies to the true fans who came to the show disappointed. EYEHATEGOD are greedy, money pig bastards, so don’t think we passed up this gig for any other reason but shitty snow and ice.”
Bringing the festivities to a close, the proud brothers of New Orleans riff debauchery and feedback will play their annual Mardi Gras show tomorrow at Siberia with Phobia and Venomous Maximus.

As previously reported, EYEHATEGOD will unleash an official live DVD on March 22 via MVD. Simply titled Live, the 88-minute production features multi-camera footage from 2009 (Baltimore, MD) and 2010 (Cleveland, OH), with bonus clips from the last show of their 2010 European tour and videos never before released before on DVD. A perfect dose of Black Flag meets Black Sabbath in ragged, live glory.
