Tour de Force



Whether they’re shooting themselves in the feet (literally) or fending off sandwich rape from a giant mutant racoon, there is always something interesting going on in the world of Weedeater. And that fact alone might be enough to compel you to go see the band on their upcoming American headlining tour*. But Weedeater are sweetening the deal to further compel you to a show! Not just by playing awesome stoner metal — that’s a given — but by bringing along Saviours, Bison B.C.**, and Fight Amp, too! I’m not like a huge Saviours fan or anything, but Bison and Fight Amp both rule, especially live.

So hide your joint well — you know those bouncers will be extra-on-the-lookout when the band is called “Weedeater” and the poster has pot leaves on it — and get your butt to one of these shows. Dates after the jump!

*”Why not a North American headlining tour?” Canadian (but not Mexican) fans wonder. I’d wager it’s either because a) the Canadians would never ever allow the Weedeaters across their border, or b) because it’s Canada, the silliest place on Earth.

**Can the other Bison please give up now, so we can stop typing “B.C.” all the time? You lost, fellas. The other band is better known than you. Find a new name. I suggest Mastodon. Oh, wait.
