METALSUCKS-SPONSORED HAUNTED TOUR GETS SOME NEW BANDS

270

Lots and lots of you have e-mailed us this week to ask about the fact that Intronaut and Kylesa have both dropped off The Haunted’s upcoming, MetalSucks-sponsored headlining trek in order to go tour with the almighty Mastodon. And, yeah, it’s bittersweet news at best; we were looking forward to seeing them with The Haunted, but it’s not as though the Atlanta quartet is really any less awesome than our favorite Swedes.

Of course, the always spectacular non-Nazis in Nachtmystium are still doing The Haunted tour, and now the replacement bands for Intronaut and Kylesa have been announced: Merauder and The Agonist.

Full confession: I’m not really familiar with either of these bands. But, hey, I love discovering new music, and now I have a project to look forward to! And even if for some reason you don’t like one or both of these bands, you’ve still got Nachtmystium (awesome) and, of course, THE MUTHAFUCKIN’ HAUNTED.

Apr. 02 – The Glasshouse – Pomona, CA

We will be at the April 19 show at BB King’s… although, to be honest, after the killer time we had in Atlanta last weekend, I’m tempted to get on a plane and check out the gig at The Masquerade. Sigh.
