weedeaterWeedeater is a southern metal band that formed in North Carolina during the year 1997. In the mid-1990’s, Weedeater arose from the ashes of the southern-drug-lord-band Buzzov-en, who had disbanded along the swampy shores of the Cape Fear river in North Carolina not too long before. Fronted by famed madman and bass virtuoso “Dixie” Dave Collins, this three piece doom juggernaut has been eating audiences alive for more than 10 years now.

After nearly ten years in existence, and numerous live shows, the band has released three full length albums and continues to tour constantly, including a set of west coast dates with Sunn O))), Earth and Wolves in the Throne Room. In April 2007, the band signed on to the Southern Lord record label for the release of their third album, God Luck and Good Speed. Aside from the national publications, the boys have also been in the weekly mags gaining national attention for being one of the most moving live bands in recent history, with the proof lying in each of the hundreds of blazing shows they play every year.
