Below is our complete Dredg news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Although it wasn't expected until December, the organizers of Australia's Soundwave Festival have made their second band announcement. Joining the 60 bands already announced are Staind, Wednesday 13, Unearth, Cathedral, Shadows Fall, Heaven Shall Burn, Your Demise, Kittie, and 14 other (mostly non-metal) bands.
Hole has pulled out of the festival after frontwoman Courtney Love refused to play before Limp Bizkit. Soundwave boss AJ Maddah said on Twitter that he was "relieved we got the moody old cow off the bill. [There’s] no point talking her back, only for her to cancel later, or turn up & act like a rotten twat to other artists, fans, etc."
A third announcement in early December will add another five bands to the lineup, and Danzig is one of the confirmed possibilities. More...
Fair to Midland has been confirmed to support The Damned Things and Maylene & The Sons of Disaser on the Inked Magazine tour this summer. "We're very excited about being a part of this tour," says bassist Jon Dicken. "We're fans of all the bands involved and are looking forward to hitting the road with them for what looks like should be a fun summer. It's a great way to kick off the release of our new record. Also, since it's called the Inked Magazine Tour we may need to make a few tattoo shop stops before the tour starts!"
The band has also been confirmed to support Dredg in July along side The Trophy Fire. Those dates are in addition to the cluster of CD Release shows the act announced earlier this week.
Fair to Midland will release a new full-length entitled "Arrows and Anchors" on July 12th, 2011. This is the band’s follow-up to the "Fables from a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times Is True" record released in 2007. One of the new tracks, titled "Amarillo Sleeps on My Pillow" is still being given away as a free download.

Judgement Day has issued the second report from their European tour with Dredg, with a humorous anecdote as well:
"As soon as we hit Germany, our casual European vacation turned into a full-on, epic rock tour. Dredg are heroes in Germany, and every night we played to over 1000 people. This was definitely the biggest week in Judgement Day’s life so far, and it went incredibly well. For all of the German shows we were also joined by another cool band called The Parlor Mob, from New Jersey. They fit perfectly into the bill with excellent musicianship and a sound vaguely reminiscent of classic Led Zeppelin. They seemed to be excited about our band as well. Their sound engineer Tony liked us so much that he ended up doing our sound for free, which made a huge difference for us.
"A few days before our show in Berlin, Dredg got a memo from the Berlin police department saying that they were looking for 'Dradg' for questioning about some 'property damage.' Everyone in the band got really paranoid, so Drew Roulette (bass player) came up with a brilliant prank:
"On the night of the Berlin show, he hired 2 actors to dress up like German police, come on stage in the middle of the set and arrest Gavin and Dino (singer and drummer)! It worked perfectly: Gavin and Dino were scared shitless!
"Drew wanted all of the fans to think that the arrest was real for the first few days, so after the show we posted this video, which cuts off just before the prank is revealed:
Three days later we posted the full, uncut version: More...

American progressive rock band Dredg has cancelled their supporting Australian tour with Karnivool, set to take place from mid November through to December around Australia.
The band commented: “Unfortunately, dredg will no longer be touring in Australia with Karnivool this November/December. After further planning and some unexpected twists we have found that the tour is no longer feasible. We are extremely apologetic and hope that someday, in the near future, we will be able to finally tour there. Until then…”
Judgement Day has issued a European tour report from their tour with Dredg. Here are some excerpts, which are interesting to contrast the European hospitality the bands receive:
"This tour has been quite luxurious. The main reason is that we are splitting a tour bus with Dredg. Riding on a bus makes everything so much easier. We party, watch movies and sleep during the drives, and then wake up every morning exactly where we need to be. Riding with Dredg has been incredibly fun. There are eleven of us total riding on the bus and everyone hangs out and has a good time. It’s much easier to be traveling with a larger group of people because you don’t get sick of everyone. It also helps that everyone on our bus is chill and fun.
"In addition to the luxury of the bus, the hospitality in Europe is absolutely amazing. Almost every day we find our dressing room stocked with gourmet cheese, meats, vegetables and sweets. Almost every night we have an amazing catered dinner with wine. They sure know how to treat musicians over here.
"It hasn’t been all fun and games though. To help offset the enormous bill that we are going to get at the end of the tour we have been hustling extra hard to sell cds. We have been playing on street corners in the day and sometimes outside of the clubs when the shows get out:
"We made a special European tour cd that we are only selling on this trip called Excerpts. It includes three songs off of our upcoming record Peacocks /Pink Monsters as well as all of Opus 3: Acoustic."
