Black Tusk and Howl team up for European tour

Black Tusk and Howl will team up for a co-headlining European tour starting in early February. This will be the first time either band has toured Europe and will be doing so in support of their Relapse debuts. The month-long tour will kick-off on February 4th in Germany and cover a dozen countries. A listing of confirmed tour dates and cities can be found below with more details to be announced soon.

Black Tusk released their Relapse debut, Taste The Sin, in May and are currently out on a three-week U.S. tour alongside sludge masters Crowbar. The band has recently seen their track “The Takeoff”, taken from Taste The Sin, remixed by Grammy Award winner RZA for the RZA Vs. Nike 6.0 video series. “The Takeoff” remix can be heard during the video “The RZA vs. Garrett Reynolds” (professional BMX rider, X-Games winner, Dew Tour rider) that’s viewable here.

Howl are also currently on tour in the U.S., rounding out dates with Every Time I Die on their “Shit Happens: The Tour”. This four week tour kicked off earlier this month with remaining stops in Pittsburgh, South Hackensack, and Cleveland. Howl released their new full-length Full Of Hell this past spring and are streaming the release in its entirety at
