Hide your children… and your dog. The masked miscreants in GHOUL are coming back to seize your soul and all your worldly possessions on another run of live assaults this Fall. Slated to commence on September 5th in Chicago, the band will reduce seventeen municipalities to rubble and snicker at the aftermath. GHOUL will be supporting blackened thrash headliners, Skeletonwitch, and black metal tyrants, Black Anvil!
Comments the band from their lair, “GHOUL is very excited to come back to your inbred, bullet-riddled country, and engage in the wholesale slaughter of some of your society’s least desirable high school students; that is, if there are any still alive when we get there. To have the honor of doing so with the likes of Skeletonwitch and Black Anvil is really the death icing on the murder cake. Forward into carnage!”

GHOUL will be touring in support of themselves as well as their Hang Ten EP released earlier this year via Tankcrimes. Recorded by Salvador Raya at Earhammer Studios in Oakland (birthing home of GHOUL‘s Splatterhash, Splatterthrash and Transmission Zero), mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering with cover art by Sean Aaberg of Pork Magazine, Hang Ten is pus-encrusted sonic surf metal celebration, boasting guest vocals from Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan) as Henchman #1 and the inimitable R.A. MacLean (ex-Deadbolt) as Kreeg, alongside Digestor, Cremator, Fermentor, Dissector and The Moron Cavern-Shackled Choir. Picking up where Transmission Zero left off, the limited edition six-song (mostly) instrumental 10″ relays the tale of a Creepsylvania in ruins, and the terrible power struggle that ensues between two vicious motorcycle gangs. Order yours HERE.
In related news, team GHOUL recently ventured into the wide world of television with their own YouTube broadcast. The first episode of GHOUL‘s Burning Questions is out now and boasts bassist Cremator and other members of GHOUL answering email, video, and phoned-in questions from fans. Doleful ghoulunatics brave enough to engage the hooded cannibals directly will have advice and insults hurled at them. The first episode of GHOUL‘s Burning Questions can be viewed below along with a tour statement.
