New Orleans’ favorite road demons GOATWHORE will take to the streets again with their first live performances of 2016. The onstage uprising begins tonight on their home turf at Gasa Gasa. Next week, the band will level stages in six cities from February 25th through March 1st including an appearance at Inertia Entertainment’s 20th Anniversary Show with Sacrifice, Macabre and Panzerfaust at The Opera House in Toronto. Additionally, team GOATWHORE will play at Shredmonton Fest in Canada in May as well as Bloodstock Fest in the UK and Motorcultor Fest in France, both set to take place in August, with supplementary live invasions currently in their plotting stages.

Comments frontman Ben Falgoust, “In August, we will be making our first appearance at Bloodstock Open Air. After many years of diligent work and relentless touring we have been presented with this fine experience. We are quite ready to give our fans and newcomers a performance well deserved of BOA. See you all then! We have some more festival announcements coming in the next month, so keep your eyes open for more details. If any of our European fans would like to see us at other festivals please step forward and demand our presence directly to the festival that you would like to see us perform at.”

GOATWHORE released their unanimously-adored Constricting Rage Of The Merciless full-length via Metal Blade in 2014. Crowned a, “blasphemous blast,” by Decibel Magazine and commended for channeling, “every evil impulse of its blackened death thrash,” into the record by The Austin Chronicle, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless debuted at #81 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, crushing their last entry position of #171 with Blood For The Master. Constricting… also hit the #21 spot on Billboard’s Rock chart, #7 on the Hard Rock chart, #13 on the Independent chart and, boasting ten mutinous tracks of thick, predatory, subterranean metal, continues to reap the exaltation of fans and critics globally.
