BLACK TUSK Announce European Tour #tourdates #originalphotos #videointerview #metal

Black Tusk is one of our favorites in the metal genre and maybe the only "swamp metal" band around.   Here's our original video interview with the guys and our live show shots from a number of their Chicago gigs over the past few years.

BLACK TUSK have confirmed that they 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.

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 has also announced a handful of regional tour dates for this summer.  They start July 24th in Augusta, GA and runs through July 27th in Memphis, TN.
