New Noise Magazine Presents; Royal Thunder & Bask also appearing / Black Tusk's Pillars of Ash LP coming 1/29/16

In anticipation of the release of their forthcoming Pillars of Ash LP (January 29th, Relapse), Savannah, GA's Black Tusk will kick off a U.S. tour, presented by New Noise Magazine, with Royal Thunder and special guest Bask.  The first leg of the tour has been announced today and will take the bands throughout the southern portion of the United States, with stops in North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, Florida and Georgia for two weeks in January and February.  Check out the tour routing below.
Since their formation over 10 years ago, Black Tusk 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 Black Tusk's finest accomplishment to date.  Listen to the first song to surface from the album, titled "God's On Vacation", on NPR's All Songs Considered.
More news coming soon.
