Ringworm & Nails tour dates

. . .

Ringworm and Nails head out tonight on the most kick-ass tour of the summer. (See dates below.) Most here are familiar with Nails’ wall of sound. Ringworm is a longtime favorite of mine, but haven’t gotten the shine they deserved, perhaps due to not touring much or being a low priority band on Victory. Hopefully this tour will help change that.

Ringworm’s new album Scars has been lashing my ears this week. The slightly clean, compressed sound is a litle foreign, but the tunes rip and should go down well live. Big chunks sound like long-lost ’80s thrash, specifically Anthrax and Slayer. Human Furnace’s scream sounds as good as ever. These shows with Nails should be a blast. If you can’t make it out to one, check out Ringworm’s back catalogue, but hide your kids, hide your wife, and hide your husband.
