RWAKE: Announce End of Year Shows
Arkansas’ backwoods doomsayers RWAKE have announced a series of end of year shows to close out 2012. The shows start Dec. 19th in the band’s hometown of Little Rock and wrap up with a special show in Atlanta, GA with NEUROSIS, PRIMATE & US CHRISTMAS on Dec. 29th. A complete listing of dates is included below.
RWAKE recently premiered their disturbingly controversial new video for “It Was Beautiful, But Now It’s Sour” via Noisey at this location. The 12 minute short film, directed Danish horror aficionado Casper Haugegaard, features devastating slow motion close-ups of actual pig fetuses being absolutely annihilated by a variety of implements. RWAKE released Rest, their first album in over four years, last year to immense critical acclaim. The harrowingly beautiful progressive/doom/sludge masterpiece is currently available for streaming here.

Dec 28 Nashville, TN Exit In w/ Forest of Tygers, Hellbender
