So while working preemptively on my Decibel Magazine Top 40 Albums of the Year list I realized that even in a very solid year for heavy music a few releases stand out as heavyweight contenders. And Dead Ends, the latest album from Miami’s Shroud Eater, is the sort of record that could uppercut someone’s head into gory confetti and then paste it back together with care. With crushing riffs and eerie beauty, it’s one of the few 2013 releases I encourage ANYONE who likes rock music to check out and support. And now, if you live in the southeastern portion of this country you may have the chance to see this fantastic band live. The tour information and dates are as follows:

SHROUD EATER is excited to announce a Southern tour September 5-10, taking them to Little Rock, AR for a performance on the Mutants of the Monster Fest III. The band is touring in support of their highly  acclaimed 2013 EP DEAD ENDS, out on The Path Less Traveled Records and Primitive Violence Records and Visual.

Thursday 9/5/13 MIAMI, FL @ Churchills Pub
Friday 9/6/13 ATLANTA, GA @ The Masquerade (Purgatory)
Saturday 9/7/13 NASHVILLE, TN @ The Owl Farm
Sunday 9/8/13 LITTLE ROCK, AK @ Mutants of the Monster Fest III
Monday 9/9/13 BIRMINGHAM, AL @ The High Note
Tuesday 9/10/13 JACKSONVILLE, FL @ Warehouse 818

"Gritty, hefty, and impressive." - HEAVY Music Magazine, (Australia)
"A viscous, plunging record full of unexpected surges and explosions" - Exclaim!, 2013
"Grimy, powerful, explosive ..." - MeatMeadMetal
"DEAD ENDS is a coloss, the sound is monolithic." - Metal Bandcamp, 2013
"The hooks and rhythms in this are excellent." - Heavy Metal About.com, 2013

I’m bummed that I’m going to miss this tour with a trip to Atlanta two weeks after the above tour date, especially since Shroud Eater’s set will likely leave the city in ruins. I expect Atlanta to be leveled and overrun with nomadic cannibals and blood-thirsty birds scavenging human flesh when I arrive. If you have to drive miles and states out of the way to see one of these shows, do it.
