Legendary Tacoma, Washington mathcore/hardcore/metal band Botch announces EU/UK tour dates today for Spring 2024. Please see all dates below. All ticket links are HERE. “Playing in Europe has always been a highlight for us,” says vocalist Dave Verellen. “Very stoked to have one last run over there.”
Following a headline slot at this year’s Hellfest and two club shows in June 2023, the band decided to assemble one last European tour — their first since 2000. The reunited band will be supporting the Sargent House reissues of We Are the Romans, America Nervoso and most recently, An Anthology of Dead Ends (vinyl out on October 27th, 2023).
Originally recorded in 2002, An Anthology of Dead Ends serves as a swan song, sending off one of heavy music’s most inventive groups. Their monstrous concoction of metal, noise, indie rock guitar trickery, and depth is on full display. This is a last will and testament to the group’s drive and intent, cementing their legacy as one of the untouchable greats, already having influenced many a group.
Bassist Brian Cook, guitarist David Knudson, drummer Tim Latona, and vocalist Dave Verellen formed Botch in 1993, becoming one of the most ground-breaking and influential bands during a pivotal shift in heavy music. Their final show was June 15, 2002, the same day as the original release of An Anthology of Dead Ends. The members would go on to play in These Arms Are Snakes, Minus the Bear, Russian Circles and Sumac, among others, with acclaim for the band coming mostly post-breakup.
An Anthology of Dead Ends is available digitally and will see its vinyl release on October 27th, 2023 via Sargent House. Pre-order HERE.
