The monstrous post-death metal band from down under, New Zealand’s Ulcerate, have announced their first ever North American tour. Featuring support from Tombs, the band’s short trek will lead up to their appearance at Maryland Deathfest (which I plan on attending, woah!).
Here are the dates, via tour co-sponsor Metalsucks (how come we don’t get to sponsor sweet tours like this? Someone throw us an offer!):
May 18, 2012 — Philadelphia, PA — Kung Fu Necktie
May 19, 2012 — Brooklyn, NY — Public Assembly
May 20, 2012 — Boston, MA — TBA
May 22, 2012 — Quebec City, QC — L’Agitée
May 23, 2012 — Montreal, QC — Katacombes
May 24, 2012 — Toronto, ON — Hard Luck
May 25, 2012 — Rochester, NY — Bug Jar
May 27, 2012 — Baltimore, MD — The Sonar (Maryland Deathfest)
Since this is their first tour on this continent, be sure to make it out and support these guys. As a small band from New Zealand, I’m sure getting over here was not easy. Go out to the show and buy every shirt and album they’re selling.
