EYEHATEGOD will kick off another European leg of their Staggering Backward live takeover. Slated to commence tomorrow, June 6th, 2015, the band will deafen ears through nearly two-dozen venues and thirteen countries beginning in Siegen, Germany at Freak Valley Festival 2015 alongside Earthless, Electric Moon and many more.
The tour also includes a stop at Hellfest in Clisson, France with Superjoint, Saint Vitus, Life Of Agony, Weedeater etc. as well as In Flammen Open Air in Torgau, Germany with Bömbers, Vader, Darkened Nocturn Slaugthercult, Terrorizer LA and others.
The latest stretch of live demolitions follow EYEHATEGOD‘s US mini tour last month which included a punishing performance at Psycho California and the band’s recent Big Easy Entertainment Award win in the category of Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal.
Comments frontman Mike IX Williams: “After multiple nominations throughout the past years; EYEHATEGOD have won the local Big Easy Awards for best New Orleans Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band in this god forbidden city that care has obviously forgotten.”

EYEHATEGOD continues to quake stages in support of their Housecore Records released self-titled LP which inundated the masses in 2014, breaking the band’s decade-and-a-half gap since their prior full-length and marking the most successful release in the band’s twenty-five-year lineage. Having helped define the NOLA sound with their signature down-tuned, blues-inflected guitars awash in furious distortion, underpinning the tormented screams of Mike IX Williams over a thundering rhythm section, EYEHATEGOD reemerged stronger and more determined than ever before. EyeHateGod personifies desperation and addiction in the various backwaters of forgotten America, punctuated by the “N’awlins” sound of rebellion and pollution resulting in triumph over adversity.

“…the best material of their 25-year career.” – Exclaim
“…the record that EHG fans have been waiting for; a stomping and venomous set of eleven tracks that reignite the band’s amazing propensity for down-trodden, electric blues and with their late drummer LaCaze behind the kit.” – Noisey
“…in terms of consistency and sheer ‘fuck yeah’-ness this is right up there in that first tier of must-have EYEHATEGOD platters. Welcome back, boys. You earned it.” – Metal Injection
