SONS OF TONATIUH: Atlanta Sludge Trio Set For East Coast Takeover Next Month

Atlanta sludge trio, SONS OF TONATIUH, will take to the streets next month on another round of lead-footed live invasions touting psalms from their impending new full-length. The tour will kick off on June 17th on their home turf and stomp its way through eleven metropolises in eight states – some of which the band has never performed — concluding on June 27th in Raleigh. Ears will be deafened. Children will cry.

“Seven years running and the coals are still blazing bright,” offers the band of their latest bout of onstage annihilation. “With our first time up to Buffalo and Boston, the Armageddon will ensue. This tour will be in support of our upcoming third release. Touring will be non-stop for the next couple of years as we plan to cover new ground across the pond as well as within this great mud bowl. We hope to see some old friends as well as meet some new ones so don’t be a stranger and come out and support our venom towards authority.”

SONS OF TONATIUH – guitarist/vocalist Dan Caycedo, bassist Twitch and drummer Josh Lomanto – released their Parade Of Sorrow long player via Hydro-Phonic Records in 2012. The Kyle Spence- (Harvey Milk) produced, grisly riff fest was praised for its “joining of galloping thrash and arching doom, bruising hardcore and crackling guitar solos,” by Independent Weekly, likened to “sinking in quicksand” by Exclaim! and continues to charm listeners globally with its gnarly brand of punk-infused, lead-footed, sludge rock anthems.

“Each number builds around screaming vocal harmonies, unexpected melodies, and monstrous guitar solos. But the real power lies in the uncomplicated design of it all.” – Creative Loafing

“…a savagely aggressive, sonically belligerent album that is among the rawest to emerge from the southern USA in the last decade…” – This Is Not A Scene

“…filth-encrusted and viciously heavy…” – One Metal

“…a head-on-collision between early Black Sabbath and Eyehategod.” – Sea Of Tranquility

“…ten tracks of viscous, hard-livin’ Southern doom.” – Ad Hoc

SOT meld the visceral, unrefined DIY sounds of sludge, punk and hardcore into ten tracks and thirty-seven minutes blues for the disenfranchised. SOT songs boomerang from the most atherosclerotic sludge to sick crossover breakdowns and Ginn-esque punk rock.” – Hellride
