Southern Lord Records signs Weedeater
North Carolina's Weedeater has officially joined the Southern Lord Records roster. The band has previously released material with Crucial Blast Records, among others. Here's a statement from Southern Lord: "After a long and arguably grueling courtship, Southern Lord is finally harmoniously involved with North Carolinas' filthiest, and finest heathens: Weedeater! Some of you may remember their appalling and compelling appearance at the Southern Lord South by Southwest showcase in 2003, and track on the very first Southern Lord label compilation: 'Let There Be Doom.' Well now this summer, we are stoked to be bringing you their Lord debut album God Luck and Good Speed." The new album was recorded in January and February at Chicago's Electrical Audio with producer Steve Albini. You can listen to some of the band's material here.
