BLACK TUSK Prepare For Tour, EP Release

BLACK TUSK will return to Europe this autumn to tour on the back of their brand new EP Tend No Wounds. The trio from Savannah, Georgia will be supported on all dates by Fight Amp.

 The band commented:

“BLACK TUSK is excited to be returning to Europe and the UK to support our new EP Tend No Wounds. This will be our first time extensively touring the UK as well and we are excited to see new cities show up on the routing that aren’t usually there. We couldn’t be sharing the stage with a bunch of better dudes than Fight Amp and we are looking forward to slaying some shows and drinking some beers with all our buddies on the other side of the pond!”

Additionally, Brutal Panda Records has repressed the long out-of-print BLACK TUSK / Fight Amp split 7″, featuring artwork from Baroness frontman John Baizley, specifically for the tour.  The split is also available for order here. http://brutalpandarecords.com/shop/black-tusk-fight-amp-split-7-vinyl/

Tend No Wounds is a six track EP that takes you on a twenty minute ride of raging Southern rock and pure adrenaline, providing the perfect stop-gap between their last album  – Set The Dial – and their next. The EP was recorded with producer Phillip Cope (Kylesa, Baroness) at the Jam Room in Columbia, South Carolina. Tend No Wounds will be available in CD, Vinyl and digital formats and can be pre-ordered from the Relapse Records Store HERE.

BLACK TUSK Begin Work on New EP

(Savannah, GA) – BLACK TUSK commenced work on new material for their upcoming EP scheduled to be released later this Spring via Relapse Records.

“This new release is a mean one. It reminds me of a new twist on an old days BLACK TUSK sound. We got back together with Jay and Phillip Cope to turn this out with some of that earlier, brutal sound you might have heard back in the beginning albums. We figured it was about time to see what the old gang could do years later.”Black Tusk drummer, James May

The band will be taking a break from the studio in March for a short run of headline dates, followed up by a run of shows with Today is the Day, KEN Mode and Fight Amp. The tour begins March 1 in Spartanburg, SC and runs through April 7 in Chicago, IL. A complete list of dates can be found here, on the TOUR DATES page.

To help UBTR quickly raise funds over the next few weeks to cover Escape’s travel and visa costs to SXSW, BLACK TUSK donated a track to The Red Album, UBTR’s first compilation CD now available by donation at www.unblocktherock.com.
