Dark Meat Fall Tour


Dark Meat
Dark Meat, the 17-piece Athens, GA based psychedelic rock collective, is hitting the road yet again this fall for a series of 21 high energy shows throughout the Midwest, Canada, and select East Coast dates throughout September and October.

Following up the success of the release of Universal Indians on Vice Records this April, their massive 66 date tour earlier this summer, and two monumental shows with Diplo to celebrate the release of their split 7" on Chunklet, Dark Meat will return to their 1972 GMC coach bus to bring their brand of wild-eyed Southern jams to a city near you.

Press on Dark Meat:

"Expect chaos when Athens, Georgia's Dark Meat come to town." -SPIN

"Towering swamp-boogie drug-rock. When sixteen people all play the same riff at once, it can be a magical thing." -VILLAGE VOICE

"The group's communal excitement make Universal Indians a fascinating feat, surprisingly accessible and rewarding." -PITCHFORK

These kids are insane! I caught them opening for someone a few months ago. It was in a tiny room packed with sweaty bodies - but it was an all out party during their set. Not sure about the tunes, but they get an A+ for showmanship.

long haired freaky people. i saw them cram into the smallest hole in the wall bar in buffalo, pretty cool shit. Im sure they must be quite fantastic on some heavy drugs, angel of meth is a good tune.

these guys grabbed my attention at summercamp, not just with their far-out wall of sound, but also with interesting quotables: "this song is dedicated to the rabbits fucking by my campsite;" "this one is called 'in the light,' it's where we're NOT gonna be;" etc

best band name Ive heard in a while! Much better than Tapes and Tapes, Arctic Monkeys, or Tea Leaf Green.
