Goatwhore to tour with Exhumed, Cephalic Carnage, and Havok!
New album being recorded now at Mana Studios in Tampa, FL
Goatwhore is hard at work on the follow up to their most successful album to date, Carving Out The Eyes Of God. Once they wrap up recording with Erik Rutan at Mana Studios, they will immediately hit the road for headlining shows starting in Tampa, FL. From there, they will join the Exhumed tour presented by Hails and Horns, MetalSucks and MetalInjection. Support on the tour comes from Cephalic Carnage and Havok. The tour stars in Gallup, NM on October 26th.
Bassist James Harvey adds, "It has been a while since we toured with our friends in Exhumed and Cephalic Carnage. We are looking forward to having some chaos injected nights of wicked metal with them all. Things are going great in the studio with Rutan. He's a master and definitely brings out the best in us!"
