Cock And Ball Torture To Perform In Australia

A progenitor of pitch-shifted, porn influenced goregrind, and one of the most influential groups within the style, Germany's Cock and Ball Torture will make their first ever trip to Australia at the very start of 2013. After three full lengths and several EPs and splits and fifteen years together, the lurid lads decided it was finally time to make a trip to the "Land Down Under", and give Australia a taste of the aural filth they've been dishing up for one and a half decades.

Cock and Ball Torture - Bulldozing Australia 2013, will feature the support acts The Kill, The Day Everything Became Nothing and Tasmanian act Intense Hammer Rage and will take place on January 9th at The Bendigo and January 11th at The Tote in Melbourne. They have also scheduled three other dates in Adelaide, Canberra and Sydney. Get more details over at the show's event page.
