Black Tusk


Black Tusk have just announced another round of late spring and summer tour dates that extend their already never-ending itinerary. After touring with Skeletonwitch back in late January, the Savannah, Ga. band found time to finish recording its debut LP for Relapse Records, 'Taste the Sin,' with Jay Matheson and Steve Slavich in Columbia, S.C. (Baroness, Band of Horses, Kylesa). Without skipping a beat, the band members were back on the road, performing at both the Scion Rock Fest and at SXSW.

Early last month, drummer James May checked in with Noisecreep on BT's tour with Weedeater, which included Zoroaster -- another band to come out of Savannah. The new tour dates include a co-headlining bill with Zoroaster that spans most of America, but before that begins on June 15, Black Tusk will tour for most of June with Eyehategod after a week's worth of dates with Pentagram. With an album release date for May 25, 'Taste the Sin' will come out while the band members perform around their old stomping grounds in the Southeast.
