Weedeater Checks In With Band Activity Update

Weedeater has checked in with the following update about the band's upcoming activity:

"It's been a while since we've chimed in, we know. But regarding Weedeater, silence is sometimes a good thing, this being one of those times. First off, and as many of you might already know, we are very happy to announce that Jason...The Dragon is fully completed and in production now to be released March 15th via Southern Lord on CD, and sometime in April on vinyl. We would like to thank Steve Albini and everyone at Electrical Audio for once again doing a great job of capturing this band on tape, and a big thanks to John Golden and Golden studios for another superb mastering job. And of course a big thanks to Greg and everyone at Southern Lord for helping us make this happen. Who knows, one of those new songs might just pop up here soon on myspace so you can grab a quick listen. We will also have a few special pre-order options for you early birds; stay tuned for updates on that front.

"Lastly, we are heading out to tour in support of Jason... very soon, with the US jaunt (sponsored by the good folks at The Brooklyn Vegan) starting February 18th and a European tour (to be announced soon) following Roadburn. Touring support in the US will be provided by our old friends in ASG (1st leg) and Zoroaster (2nd leg). It's gonna be a great time! Dates are posted below and tickets will go on sale later this week. Hope to see you all out there, and thanks as always for your support! More updates coming soon."
