Black Tusk 2016In anticipation of their forthcoming Pillars of Ash LP (January 29th, Relapse), Savannah, GA’s Black Tusk will be on tour in North America from January through April.  Two separate tour legs have been announced; from January 22nd through February 6th, will be on the road alongside Royal Thunder and Bask, and from February 23rd to April 2nd, which features extensive touring in Canada, will be joined by Holy Grail.  Check out the tour routings below.

Since their formation over 10 years ago, have established themselves as one of the hardest working bands in rock. After four full-lengths, numerous splits and EP’s and thousands of shows under their belts, the punk/metal power trio was faced with an immense and unexpected tragedy in late 2014 when founding bassist/vocalist Jonathan Athon passed away after a motorcycle accident in his hometown. Now, as a testament to his profound and lasting legacy on the heavy music scene, the band are releasing Pillars of Ash, their final recordings with Athon, on January 29th, 2016 via Relapse Records.  Recorded with Toxic Holocaust’s Joel Grind behind the boards and featuring gorgeous artwork by Jeremy Hush (Skeletonwitch, Rwake), Pillars of Ash is the culmination of three brothers-in-arms’ blood, sweat and tears, and is ’s finest accomplishment to date.

Listen to new songs off of Pillars of Ash below and stay tuned for more news coming soon.
