WOE: Black Metal Antagonists Announce Live Assaults

Black metal antagonists WOE are pleased to announce a bout of live assaults next month. Scheduled to commence September 6 and run through September 22, the latest run marks the band’s lengthiest tour of their career. WOE will be joined by genre-crushing co-headliners Inter Arma.

Elaborates vocalist/guitarist Chris Grigg of the trek, “Not only is this WOE‘s longest tour to date, it is almost entirely new ground for us. We couldn’t be more appreciative for this opportunity to ruin so many beautiful cities and their charming populations. We are especially glad to be teaming up with Inter Arma, one of our favorite bands in the American metal scene.”

WOE will be touring in support of their latest album, Withdrawal. Called “a staggeringly diverse album,” by City Paper, and “WOE‘s greatest triumph to date,” by Decibel, Withdrawal was unleashed last Spring via Candlelight Records. The seven track offering was produced by Grigg and continues to reap critical accolades from fans and media alike. Pitchfork crowned the record one of this year’s “most irrepressible and energized metal records,” adding that “WOE plays with an urgency that suggests they have a chip on their collective shoulder and a point to prove,” while Cvlt Nation calls it, “exceptional, exciting and a definite landmark in the band’s career and the discography of USBM.” Adds Stereogum, Withdrawal ups the power quotient by a mile.”
