Black Breath: Back in Action

The first of what will be many live assaults this year...

Following several months off the touring grid, Seattle's unstoppable Black Breath will return to the road this month on a swift and brutal trek originating on the opposite side of the country at Maryland Deathfest 2014. Black Breath's impending set at MDF marks the band's first time playing the fest since their 2010 performance, and also is the first tour of the year for the generally non-stop touring machine, following their misfortune in January where drummer Jamie Byrum was hit by a car and badly injured. While Jamie is still working on getting back to maximum killing capacity, he's now able to slay his kit like a champ once again, and the band is ready to bring some decimating, high-paced action to their fans at these shows.

The action begins with a pre-tour hometown throwdown on May 14th with Theories, Bell Witch and He Whose Ox Is Gored. From there, the band will traverse the country, Baltimore-bound. A pre-MDF show on May 21st will be followed three days later with the band's actual fest set on Saturday, May 24th, the band sharing the Baltimore Soundstage venue with Theories, БУТ, Sick/Tired. Archagathus, Stapled Shut, Victims, DropDead, Birdlfesh, Noothgrush, Extinction Of Mankind and Excruciating Terror for the evening. Six nights of damage will ensue directly after MDF, as BB will tour their way back towards the West Coast, raiding Hartford, Cambridge, New York, Cleveland, Detroit and Chicago joined by Mutilation Rites, Yautja and Theories on all dates.

Much more Black Breath action is in store for 2014 as the band constructs their undoubtedly crushing third album for Southern Lord, the highly anticipated follow-up to their lauded 2012-released Sentenced To Life LP. Stand by for further transmissions in the coming weeks.
