WATAIN’S “F*CK THE WORLD” TOUR: BEST PRESS RELEASE EVER?I love Watain – love ’em – and the press release announcing their forthcoming North American “Fuck the World” tour made me giggle. I honestly can’t tell if these guys are goofing around or mean to be taken seriously – I mean, I’ve read some interviews with Watain in the past where they struck me as borderline humorless, but I don’t know how the fuck anyone could not find this tour announcement hilarious:

“Hark in woe, infidels! One and a half year after their triumphant display of magic and death upon North American, Watain shall now return to those lands on a headliner tour. Due to the strict prohibitions of anything Satanic and Criminal passing over the border to USA, a lot of compromises had to be made on the last US tour regarding both members and stage-show. This time however, the full artillery shall be brought across the sea, in all it’s terrible glory.

“The first date is on October 3rd and after that the wolves shall storm from Canada through USA on what shall constitute the last part of the monstrous crusade that has been the ‘Fuck the World Tour.’”
