Major Thank You to Brandon Hoffman and Everything Went Black from for picking us up when our alternator blew and letting us play on all their gear and also to Joe Atkinson from Quare Verum for always giving us a home away from home in St. Louis, and last but not least thank you to Ray Houska and everyone involved in Forward Ohio 2013, it was an amazing fest for some awesome causes and we were happy to play a part.

Australian Tour 2013


From the mouth of ENABLER itself - “the world is fucked, and this is the soundtrack to its demise”. The Milwaukee four-piece has pushed out eight furious releases of their own unique meshing of metal, punk, hardcore and grind influences in the last few years, all while touring across the US and Europe with such legendary acts as Rotten Sound, Black Breath, Martyrdöd, and Wormrot. Following on from 2012’s critically acclaimed All Hail The Void album for Southern Lord Records, ENABLER has just released their scorching Shift of Redemption EP through Think Fast! Records, and will be heading down under for the first time this July to launch it.

Joining them on all ten shows will be blackened crust/sludge group URNS. Based in Melbourne, the band released a 7” through Midnight Funeral in 2012, and has recently reconfigured their lineup to its fullest, most devastating potential. The band has previously shared the stage with Tragedy, Burning Love and Rosetta.

All shows $15 on the door.
