HE WHOSE OX IS GORED Announce West Coast Tour

Go see this band live! Give them your money!

Go see this band live! Give them your money!

The Pacific Northwest has long been a stronghold for great heavy metal, and Seattle's He Whose Ox Is Gored is one of the region's best kept secrets. The band combines aspects of shoegaze, doom metal, and post-rock to make a hearty stew of delicious post-everything heavy metal. No doubt some of you reading this are the kind of troo metal lunkheads who recoil at even the slightest hint of experimentation, but if you philistines give the band a chance you might discover something new to enjoy. There are some ethereal synth passages, it's true, but they're usually layered over an avalanche of riffs and acrobatic guitar work. He Whose Ox Is Gored have something for everyone, and 2014 may be the year the band gains a wider audience.

Aside from the upcoming Rumours EP which is due out later this year, the band is also working on their debut full length. To top it off, they're also preparing to head out on a series of West Coast tour dates that will see them spread their gospel all over the left side of this great nation of ours. The tour commences in Portland, Oregon on August 5th and wraps up in Spokane, Washington on August 17th. Below you can see a full list of dates and venues as well as listen to the track "Charming the Snake" from the band's Nightshade EP which was released earlier this year. See He Whose Ox Is Gored play when they're in your town and give them money in exchange for stuff through their Bandcamp page.
