Weedeater and Today Is The Day at the Hi-Tone 

North Carolina stoner-metal band Weedeater return to Memphis this Sunday for a show at the Hi-Tone. Formed in Wilmington, North Carolina, in 1998, Weedeater found underground success with their 2001 album ...And Justice for Y'all, released on their then-record label Beserker Records. As far as stoner-metal band names go, Weedeater might get the top prize, with their only real competition being Madison, Wisconsin's Bongzilla. Singer Dave Collins was the leader of the band Buzzoven prior to forming Weedeater, and his signature scary warlock-style vocals are the band's main calling card. Joining Weedeater is Author & Punisher, the one-man industrial metal machine from San Diego, California. The main project of Tristan Shone, Author & Punisher makes industrial doom metal fit for any horror-movie soundtrack, and he's been effectively creeping out audiences since 2004. Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Down) produced Shone's latest album.

Also set to play are Nashville noise rockers Today Is the Day. Formed in the early '90s, Today Is the Day helped shape the sound that their early label, Amphetamine Reptile became known for. Lord Dying, the Portland, Oregon, metal band that released last year's Poisoned Altars round out this impressive bill.
