In 2012 we’re giving you another dietary supplement from the swampy US Southern states, filled to the brim with toxic heavy metal and questionable types of tobaccos. The initiated call it sludge.
You could also simply describe Weedeater’s sound as a groovy cross between AC/DC and Black Sabbath, played by a group of bong heads with a Dixie flag hanging in the rehearsal room.
Front man "Dixie" Dave and his cronies are without a doubt good-natured Southern folks – the band's first album was called ... And Justice For Y'all with a howdy to Metallica's classic. The music, however, is a deadly mixture of fast riffs, whipped drums and growling vocals.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
