A little over 24 hours ago, legendary mathcore outfit Botch announced they were going on tour for the first time in two decades, bringing their music to old heads and a new generation of potential fans at the same time. It was super awesome and we at MetalSucks were fucking stoked to report on it.
Well, it turns out they weren’t done breaking news and putting venues in their crosshairs, as they’re now going to play New York City for two consecutive nights (November 10 and November 11) and they’ve added a November 18th gig at New Jersey’s Starland Ballroom to the itinerary.
Currently, the tour will still start with a three night stint in their hometown of Tacoma, Washington starting on February 17 and come to an end on December 12 in San Francisco. These aren’t going to be their first shows back, however. That distinction goes to their sold out gig tonight in Tacoma.
In addition to the tour, the band will commemorate the 25th anniversary of their debut album American Nervoso by reissuing it on the date it was originally released, March 24, via Sargent House.
Botch originally formed in 1993 in Tacoma, Washington. They released three EPs and two albums, including the boundary-obliterating We Are the Romans in 1999, which was also recently reissued.
