LA’s Goatsnake have announced a new set of European tour dates for May this year.

Kicking off with an appearance at the UK’s Temples Festival, the band will then make their way through Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany and Greece.

The news comes alongside the band revealing early details of their new album. The LP will feature the familiar faces of Greg Rogers (The Obsessed, Sonic Medusa) on drums, Greg Anderson (Sunn O)))) on guitar, Pete Stahl (Scream, Wool, Earthlings?) on vocals and new man Scott Renner (Brickbat, Sourvein, Sonic Medusa) on bass.

The album was produced by Grammy winner Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush, Alice In Chains, Mastodon and Ghost).

Says Anderson of the record: “We are beyond stoked about the new ‘Snake album. We all rose to the occasion and with the help of Nick and the state of Tennessee delivered the fucking goods. More soul, more power, more balls.”

Goatsnake’s confirmed European tour dates are as follows:

30th May: Temples Festival – Bristol UK
01st Jun: De Kreun – Kortrijk BE
02nd Jun: Melkweg – Amsterdam NL
03rd Jun: SO36 – Berlin DE
04th Jun: Freakvalley Festival – Siegen DE
06th Jun: AN Club – Athens GR

Meanwhile, ‘Snake men Greg Anderson and Pete Stahl both recently contributed to the debut album by Teenage Time Killers, the supergroup founded by Reed Mullin (Corrosion Of Conformity), Mick Murphy (My Ruin, The Birds Of Satan, Chevy Metal) and John “Lou” Lousteau.

Teenage Time Killers recently signed a deal with Rise Records to release Greatest Hits Vol.1 in 2015.
