March Tours: Hot Graves // B A T I L L U S

The month of March in 2013 brings the mighty ringed planet Saturn out to dance in the sky above the waning gibbous moon. As Saturn peers over the earth from deep space, two bands of titanic proportions will make terrestrial landfall over the U.S., punishing its crust.

Hot Graves brings forth brooding evil d-beat with enough swag to make fashion punks shiver in their freshly-studded boots. Their latest EP, Fashion Victim unleashes four punked-out rippers expounding on their take of punk's upside down crossed, studded and back patched impact on high fashion. No one is safe from the wrath of the Graves, and when butt flaps make it to the runways and shops on Madison Avenue, be sure the knights in white phosphorus will be there to crush them.

While Hot Graves hastens the march to your shallow place of rest, Batillus composes deep industrialized doom for the requiem. Your decomposing body will have time to reflect on its past life as Concrete Sustain pulses slowly into a bleak realm of pain and urban decay. Batillus' guitars chug and sustain into glorious feedback while synthesizers loom overhead of pounding drum and bass.

Like Saturn watching closely overhead, you should keep watch of Hot Graves and Batillus as they hit the road this March. All tour dates are listed below.
