New Orleans sludge overlords EYEHATEGOD have scheduled a special one-off show this Friday, May 7 at Emo's in Austin, Texas where they will play their coveted first two full-length albums — "In The Name Of Suffering" and "Take As Needed For Pain" — in their entirety!
EYEHATEGOD will kick off its long-anticipated U.S. tour alongside psychedelic black metallers NACHTMYSTIUM (June 4 -15) and a rotating roster of other killer openers on June 3 at Blackbooth in Orlando, Florida and wind down with two special shows at the Empty Bottle in Chicago, Illinois. Tickets are on sale now. Special limited VIP packages will be available on select dates, including South Carolina, Kentucky and Maryland as well as Michigan and North Carolina (both recent additions).

Since forming in 1988, EYEHATEGOD has defied all odds and continues to exist and persist despite personal and professional setbacks. They've been called doomcore, sludge and stoner rock, survived line-up shuffles, label hassles and a short-lived split. And after more than a decade of creating some of the most corrosive, vile music known to man, EYEHATEGOD still hasn't lost the piss and vinegar that fueled it back in '88.
