Eyehategod Celebrating 30th Anniversary of ‘Take as Needed for Pain’ on 2023 Tour With Goatwhore
In celebration of the 30th anniversary of their classic album Take As Needed for Pain, New Orleans sludge legends Eyehategod will be playing the record in full on a U.S. tour with fellow NOLA pals Goatwhore.
The 23-date jaunt kicks off in Atlanta, Georgia and makes a stop at the Decibel Metal & Beer Fest, one of just three stops that will not feature Goatwhore.
Released in 1993, Take As Needed For Pain is regarded as one of the earliest sludge metal masterpieces and demonstrated a significant stylistic leap from the more punk and hardcore addled debut, In the Name of Suffering. Now, fans will have the opportunity to hear all 12 tracks live with two of the record's remaining members, vocalist Mike IX Williams and guitarist Jimmy Bower.
Goatwhore, meanwhile, will be out in support of last year's Angels Hung From the Arches of Heaven, their eighth studio album.
