New Noise Magazine & Boss Tweed Backline Present : Black Tusk & Royal Thunder
January 30, 2016 @ 7:00 pm
Black Tusk and Royal Thunder are touring the US along with special guests, Bask & Greenbeard! Join us at Empire Control Room & Garage for an evening filled with heavy hitting rock and roll — encompassing everything from hardcore heavy metal riffs to dark psychedleic grooves.
Black Tusk is on tour in support of their 4th upcoming album, “Pillar of Ash” released through Relapse Records. “Pillar of Ash’ features final recordings with their founding bassist, Jonathan Athon. Needless to say, this record is highly anticipated. These Savannah, Georgia rockers will be bringing their signature blend of swamp metal to Austin!
Relapse Records label mates and fellow Georgians, ROYAL THUNDER are also on the road with their April release, “Crooked Doors”. This sophmore record digs deep into and showcases the band’s rooted connection with the hypnotic side of rock laced together with heavy guitar drones, cavernous jams, and howling melodic vocals, courtesy of bassist and singer, Mlny Parsonz.
Special guests, Bask complete the tour caravan, and will be dousing the stage with a fresh blend of Americana roots and heavy soundscapes.
Local rockmeisters, Greenbeard will be kicking the evening off with a barrage of headbanging riffs, entrancing rhythms, and blasting stage antics.
