Long running Maryland powerviolence legion, STRONG INTENTION, will embark on a short run of tour dates this February opening for Lock Up and Goatwhore. The trek will commence on February 8 in Buffalo and pummel its way through seven cities before coming to a ceremonial close on February 16 in Brooklyn.
Commented frontman Zac Ohler: “We as a band are honored to be taking part in Lock Up’s first ever North American tour. It will be our second go’round with Goatwhore and the first time in five years that we will be touring with Mr. Tomas Lindberg since the Disfear tour in 2006. We will be bringing a complete bombastic display of thrash/grind/punk/hardcore terrorism with us as a tour like this demands it.”
