New Orleans’ road warriors GOATWHORE will return to the US tour circuit this Fall on a short run of live abrasions prior to and following their Ozzfest appearance in San Bernardino, California on September 24th. The trek will commence on September 16th and rupture fifteen stages through October 1st. Support will be provided by The Blood Royale on select dates. GOATWHORE‘s latest US journey will follow a two-week stretch of European onstage debauchery set to kick off next month.
Comments GOATWHORE frontman Ben Falgoust: “We have been associated with Ozzfest in the past and are grateful to be playing it this year, but being part of Black Sabbath’s final West Coast show is another legendary experience to be affiliated with and be able to witness first hand, taking in every element of a band that has been a great influence on all levels in the metal world. Also, Ozzfest has given opportunities to countless freshly emerging metal acts to forge new paths and give people new levels of extreme music to connect with and hear… that doesn’t exclude this year. Tons of acts that have been pretty damn strong in the underground metal community will be making their first appearances at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, as well as repeat acts that have been a part of it in the past. So, when you come to see Black Sabbath out West for their last time, come early and be a part of the future of metal, as well as its legendary past.”
Adds drummer Zack Simmons: “We are very honored to be a part of Black Sabbath’s last ever California performance and Ozzfest’s 20th Anniversary. It’ll be a ripping day of heavy metal and a bittersweet farewell to the godfathers of the genre.”

GOATWHORE released their unanimously revered Constricting Rage Of The Merciless full-length via Metal Blade in 2014. Crowned a, “blasphemous blast,” by Decibel Magazine and commended for channeling, “every evil impulse of its blackened death thrash,” into the record by The Austin Chronicle, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless debuted at #81 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, crushing their last entry position of #171 with Blood For The Master. Constricting… also hit the #21 spot on Billboard’s Rock chart, #7 on the Hard Rock chart, #13 on the Independent chart and, boasting ten mutinous tracks of thick, predatory, subterranean metal, continues to reap the exaltation of fans and critics globally.
