Tombs Book August Dates With Planks


Brooklyn’s finest Tombs have just rolled out a bushel of tour dates with German black metallers Planks. If you’re not familiar with either band, you should check ‘em out. Definitely worth the listen.

In fact, not too long ago, Tombs — who are just heavier than Billy Milano’s left ass cheek — and Planks released a split twelve-inch in Europe through PruegelprinzRecords. I haven’t heard it but I’m sure you can get it as an import. If you do, write a review of it for me.

Actually, I think I’ll get a copy when the tour ends August 22 in Brooklyn. Surely, Tombs will have copies of the vinyl. You should get a copy too when you go see Tombs. Oh yes, you will go see Tombs. Because, let’s be honest: Tombs are just one of a handful of bands from Brooklyn not comprised of butt dart hipsters. They’re the best thing to come out of New York since flagels.

Man, New York was once a bastion of ballsy fucking music. The hardcore scene was vibrant, both in the boroughs and on Long Island. Type O Negative and Life of Agony were fucking shit up. CBGB was still open. A soda pop only set you back a shiny nickel. Now I’m just dating myself. Alas, New York has been Vampire Weekend-ed. So, uh, yeah, here’s them tour dates:

August 12: Bethlehem, PA – Secret Arts Space

August 13: Philadelphia, PA – Broad Street Ministries

August 14: Richmond, VA – Grey Matter

August 15: Greensboro, NC – Legitimate Business

August 16: Nashville, TN – The Muse
