Black Tusk Working On New EP, Gearing Up For Live Shows

Savannah, GA's Black Tusk has commenced work on new material for an upcoming EP, scheduled to be released later this Spring via Relapse Records. Drummer James May commented on the progress of the release:

"This new release is a mean one. It reminds me of a new twist on an old days Black Tusk sound. We got back together with Jay and Phillip Cope to turn this out with some of that earlier, brutal sound you might have heard back in the beginning albums. We figured it was about time to see what the old gang could do years later."
