EYEHATEGOD Returning To New Zealand In July

EYEHATEGOD Returning To New Zealand In July

Chris Cudby / Thursday 7th March, 2024 9:00AM

Returning to Aotearoa for the first time in half a decade, US sludge overlords EYEHATEGOD will be kicking up a mega-heavy ruckus in Tāmaki Makaurau and Te Whanganui-a-Tara this coming winter. Figureheads of their New Orleans metal community since emerging in 1988 and still featuring founding members Jimmy Bower (guitar) and vocalist Mike Williams, alongside Gary Mader (bassist since 2002) and Aaron Hill (drummer from 2013), EYEHATEGOD are finally back down under following the 2021 release of their latest album A History of Nomadic Behavior. Their last visit was a notably rowdy affair (check out Bruce Mackay's snaps HERE), don't delay in nabbing tickets or much wailing and gnashing of teeth (on your part) may ensue — brought to you by Valhalla Touring...

Press release:

EYEHATEGOD have become the high water mark when it comes to so called sludge metal, having birthed rock's unholy bastards and inspiring multiple others with their combined sounds of southern rock, blues riffs and hardcore punk. Noting Black Flag, The Melvins and Black Sabbath as a domineering and significant influence to their sound today, they are the cornerstone for countless other sonic acolytes following in their fetid footsteps and have made themselves one of the most reputable and distinctive bands ever.

EYEHATEGOD’s latest album ‘A History of Nomadic Behavior’ and their most recent since their last Australian tour in 2019, is a blowtorch-distortion and blues-saturated combination of songs pierced with scarring pain and disconsolate fury. The album combines an unsettling, chaotic tone with a scathing, scabrous slab of cacophonous sensory overload that only EYEHATEGOD know how to convey.
