Black Tusk - Complete Work On New EP

Georgia's sludge/hardcore combo Black Tusk have finished the recordings of their new EP, which is scheduled to be released later this spring via Relapse Records. The EP, recorded with producer Phillip Cope (Kylesa, Baroness, Dark Castle and more) at the Jam Room Recording Studio in Columbia, will serve as a gateway between their last Set The Dial and the band's next full-length.

James May (drummer) commented on the progress of the release: "This new release is a mean one. It reminds me of a new twist on an old days Black Tusk sound. We got back together with Jay and Phillip Cope to turn this out with some of that earlier, brutal sound you might have heard back in the beginning albums. We figured it was about time to see what the old gang could do years later."

Black Tusk is also scheduled to appear at this year's SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX. The group will be headlining both the Rock of Ages Tattoo Showcase at Yellow Jacket Social Club on Friday March 15th with label mates Howl and True Widow and the Official Relapse Records / Chaos in Tejas Showcase with ASG, Royal Thunder, Howl, Inter Arma and Call Of The Void on Saturday March 16th at Red 7.

Combo Breaker
Their second full-length "Taste The Sin" was really successful. I wish something as good.
