EyeHateGod Kicking Off Spring U.S. Tour Dates

New Orleans’ favorite amplification dealers from EyeHateGod will return to the stage next week on a near-two week run of live dates.

Slated to commence on May 25th in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and crumble eleven cities through June 4th, the band’s latest trek serves as fron tman Mike IX Williams’ first official tour since his liver transplant this past December. The band will be performing as a four piece for this run with guitarist Brian Patton sitting these dates out in preparation for the birth of his second child.

True underground outcast preachers of the End Time message and dealers of back alley filth and feedback, EyeHateGod returns to the road to dig a proverbial grave for the power-hungry enemies of the people.”
