The Vile Ascension trek will commence on August 1st in Orlando, Florida and conclude August 27th in their home city of New Orleans, Louisiana. Additional support will be provided by Bewitcher and Caveman Cult (on select dates).

Comments guitarist Sammy Duet, “Attention all hellrats, rivetheads and demoniacs! I am beyond stoked to announce that GOATWHORE and Incantation will be joined in an infernal pact for a full US co-headlining tour! Also joining us in the chaos will be black thrashers, Bewitcher and the bestial horde, Caveman Cult! You don’t not want to miss this show of total unholy lunacy!”

Next week, GOATWHORE will kick off a Western US tour supporting Brujeria. The journey will begin on April 26th and run through May 15th. Additional support will be provided by Unidad Trauma. From there, the band will play a short run of headlining shows through Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Iowa before joining Gwar for a three-week stretch of live debauchery from May 24th through June 18th.

GOATWHORE’s most recent full-length, Vengeful Ascension, was released to critical acclaim via Metal Blade Records in 2017. “Vengeful Ascension has extremity black metal fans will dig, groove that will appeal to death metal aficionados and potent guitar work thrash lovers can appreciate,” wrote Loudwire of the band’s highest charting album to date. Louder Sound noted, “Vengeful Ascension is the most mature recording in the GOATWHORE canon. Its combination of disparate subgenres from opposite ends of the structural and melodic continuum is masterful, resulting in a remarkably non-contrasting display of good and evil; that being good songs that sound as evil as all hell.” Added Angry Meta Guy, “This is yet another enjoyable, catchy, and barnstorming GOATWHORE album, baring enough memorable riffs, raw savagery, and variety to remain engaging across its efficient duration… an ideal soundtrack for engaging in mischievous mayhem or simply knocking back some brews with good company, and that folks, is what GOATWHORE is all about.”
