Roll up a fat one, because Weedeater are ready to ride another rip-roaring high. The sludge-stoned tar heels are chasing the dragon up and down the East Coast this spring. Along the way, they’ll be throwing wizard fights aboard the Rocks Off Concert Cruise and chunking $20 peanuts at Grim Reefer Fest. 

Joining as main support on all 15 days of this excellent adventure are the Iowa stoners in Telekinetic Yeti. Purveyors of fifth dimensional riffs Heavy Temple will open the first leg. Next up are bonafide blues rockers Left Lane Cruiser, followed by badass doomsayers Restless Spirit.

Weedeater rose like a doobie out of the harbor town of Wilmington about the year 1998. Their crushing and massive first full-length …and Justice for Y’all (2001) created an immediate buzz, while critics were struggling to put a tag on their sound. Nearly everybody agreed that stoner rock, doom, sludge and some crusty elements were part of the mix, which the band simply calls “weed metal”.

Their debut was produced by renowned engineer Billy Anderson (Eyehategod, Neurosis) as well as sophomore album Sixteen Tons (2002). After some detours of Dixie Dave, third album God Luck and Good Speed hit the world in 2007 and shifted the band’s focus slightly towards the stoner side. Jason… the Dragon got delayed when Dave lost a toe due to an incident with his favorite shotgun. When the sludge driven album finally came out in 2011, shows in the US and Europe cemented the band’s reputation as a fierce live entity.

After signing to Season of Mist, Weedeater reissued their full back-catalogue. Their most recent album ‘Goliathan’ makes the South smoke again. Lean back and let this monster record blow your mind!
