Weedeater-"Jason the Dragon" Coke Bottle Green Vinyl, Limited to 500.
Coke Bottle Green Vinyl, Limited to 500.
After 2007's critically acclaimed and now classic release, God Luck and Good Speed, had been toured to death around the world, the boys of WEEDEATER took time between the mishaps and mayhem of 2010 to write and record their 2nd album for Southern Lord Recordings and 4th full-length CD/LP, Jason ... the Dragon, which will be released March 15th. Recorded and mixed by the legendary Steve Albini and mastered by the equally legendary John Golden, Jason ... continues the legacy that has culminated over nearly 15 years of the band's existence into something truly unique and masterful. WEEDEATER takes the listening doomernaut on a slithering journey though a sludgy world of viscous, black molasses riffs that are punctuated by cannon drums and some of the album's most memorable lyrics. With a full headlining tour of the US planned for February and March and a European tour shortly thereafter with a stop at Roadburn and more dates to be announce soon, the band is rearing to take 2011 by storm and there is a horde of rabid fans ready to hear their newest offerings. Pure, unabashed, musical violence in every form. It's real, and it's dangerous, and it feels so damn good.
