WEEDEATER: Jason… The Dragon Tour and SXSW Update

North Carolina sludge warriors WEEDEATER’s upcoming Jason… The Dragon Tour is set to kick off this Friday with a hometown Wilmington sendoff, and will continue to collectively kick in the nation’s ass for five weeks following that night! WEEDEATER’s new full-length of southern brewed hostility Jason… The Dragon rears it’s blazed head on March 15th, 2011 while the band will already be a month into the massive tour.

Since previous tour announcements, Kvelertak have been added to many of the West Coast stops of the tour, Red Fang have been added to the LA show, and the Chico, California venue has been changed. We have also since confirmed WEEDEATER several appearances in Austin, Texas for mid-March, both at the Converse and Thrasher’s Death Match alongside Zoroaster, The Body, Liturgy and Trash Talk, and WEEDEATER’s appearance at the official SXSW stop of the Metalliance tour also with Witchburn, The Atlas Moth, Howl, Red Fang, Kylesa, Crowbar, St. Vitus and Helmet!
