Withered & Wake hooking up for North American jaunt

Georgia blackened death metallers Withered and Canadian crusty grindcore bunch Wake have announced a series of North American tour dates together for this spring.

Sponosred by CVLT Nation, the trek kicks off mid-March and runs until April with New York’s only stop going down in Brooklyn at Saint Vitus on April 4 [TIX tba].

Speaking of the impending tour, Withered guitarist Mike Thompson comments:

After 6 months of one-off shows, a little writing, and regrouping, we can’t handle not being on the road any longer. So, we invited Canadian grinders, WAKE to join us late this winter for an eastern North America run. We plan to bring a new show with some songs we haven’t played in over a decade and can’t wait to reintroduce some of Withered’s back catalogue to new and old fans. It’s going to be one for the books.

Withered are trekking in support of their last release on Season of Mist, Grief Relic. Wake will hit the road in support of their forthcoming LP on Translation Loss Records, Misery Rites (due 2/23).
