Earthen Grave Playing East Coast Shows This Weekend, Live Footage Posted Online

Amidst a cluster of regional Summer tours, including recent performances throughout the Midwest and Southern U.S. and a show in Canada, Chicago’s orchestral epic doom outfit Earthen Grave will head east this week.

The band will play an early show at Acheron in Brooklyn, New York this Friday, preceded by a concert by bassist Ron Holzner’s other band The Skull with Eric Wagner at Saint Vitus Bar. The next day Earthen Grave will travel to Connecticut for a performance at Stoner Hands of Doom XII on Saturday alongside RoadSaw, Ichabod, Raw Radar War, Pilgrim, Earthride, Revelation, Pale Divine, Iron Man, Elder, War Injun and tons more at the four-day all-ages event. Earthen Grave will be unveiling a brand new track at the East Coast shows this weekend as well.

Earthen Grave will also be supporting Kill Devil Hill (featuring Rex Brown and Vinny Appice) Thursday Sept 13th at Chicago’s Double Door, and the performance is to be streamed live on Gigity.TV. Specifics will be posted on the band’s website shortly. Earthen Grave recently performed at the two-day Days Of The Doomed II Festival in Cudahy, Wisconsin alongside Solace, Blood Farmers, Earthride, Revelation, Argus and more.

The outfit then crossed into Canada and played a first international show, as part of the Music & Beyond Festival in Ontario where the band performed within a deconsecrated wood cathedral. Several weeks later as the group was set to play in New Orleans, the show was canceled en-route. Making last-minute arrangements, EG ended up joining the bill at a raging, beer-soaked CD release party for Hipsterectomy in Austin, and also landed a spot on Ripple Festival in Dallas where the infamous Sherman from Earthride joined for two songs, and guitarist Jason Muxlow met one his biggest metal influences when he busted a guitar string mid-set and John Perez stepped out of the crowd to fix it.

Upcoming live shows are:

8/31/2012 The Acheron - Brooklyn, NY w/ Iron Man, War Injun, Kin of Ettins
9/01/2012 El 'n' Gee - New London, CT @ SHoD Fest
