EYEHATEGOD will take over MetalSucks’ Instagram page for the day on Friday, April 14th prior to their headlining set on day one of this year’s Berserker Fest in Pontiac, Michigan alongside Off!, Negative Approach, Fuck You Pay Me, and so many more. The performance serves as frontman Mike IX Williams’ first show since a liver transplant this past December. Be sure to follow a day of EYEHATEGOD shenanigans using the hashtag #EyehategodTakeover.
In addition to Berserker, EYEHATEGOD will make their way to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Brooklyn, New York this weekend. The band recently booked additional shows next month in Louisiana and Texas. See all confirmed dates below.

EYEHATEGOD continues to deafen the masses in support of their self-titled LP which dropped in 2014 via Housecore Records, breaking the band’s decade-and-a-half gap since their prior full-length and marking the most successful release of the band’s storied history. Having helped define the “NOLA sound” with their signature down-tuned, blues-inflected guitars awash in furious distortion, underpinning the tormented screams of Mike IX Williams over a thundering rhythm section, EYEHATEGOD reemerged stronger and more determined than ever before. EyeHateGod personifies desperation and addiction in the various backwaters of forgotten America, punctuated by the “N’awlins” sound of rebellion and pollution resulting in triumph over adversity.
The band will be celebrating their thirtieth anniversary next year. Stay tuned for special releases to be announced in the future.
