Woah. I don’t think of myself as a jealous person but fuck me sideways, this is unfair in the best possible way. To celebrate ten years of providing moshers, grinders and hardcore dancers with the finest threads, IndieMerch have gathered together a who’s who of the heaviest bands around. Headlining the tour are The Black Dahlia Murder, who may or may not be my favourite band, and if that isn’t enough to get your wallets out then wait for the support acts. Representing the denim jacketed thrash masses are Iron Reagan. Next up is hatecore monsters Harm’s Way, fresh from dropping the phenomenal Rust. Is that all? No. Maruta are playing these shows too… Jealous.

Thrash, hardcore, deathgrind and death metal all reprented on one big tour package. People in these cities are spoiled rotten and I could shit I am not one of them. The Black Dahlia Murder will probably be playing the recently released debut track from upcoming Metal Blade release Abysmal. Maybe more new songs too? Iron Reagan are held in high regards when their live shows come into question and Harm’s Way and Maruta have both released stellar albums already this year. Again, I can’t put across how much I want to get to one of these shoes.
