Milwaukee-based wrecking crew ENABLER have just announced a new string of North American live assaults set to run from mid-October through the first week of November. The full list of dates has been updated, as well.
The dates include FORMER THIEVES mini tour:
Oct 21 – Philadelphia, PA – Kung Fu Necktie
Oct 23 – Harrisonburg, VA – The Blue Nile
Oct 24 – Columbia, SC – One Unit Art Space
Oct 25 – Atlanta, GA – TBA
Oct 28 – Gainesville, FL – The Laboratory (THE FEST)
Oct 29 – Pensacola, FL – TBA
Oct 30 – Birmingham, AL – The Forge
With shows booked as part of the annual CMJ conference in New York City, this year’s installment of the massive Fest, Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas, the eleventh annual incarnation of The Fest in Gainesville, Florida and more, Enabler will share the stage with the likes of Yakuza, Former Thieves, Converge, Kvelertak, Brutal Truth and a range of other potent acts along the way.
Following their brutal touring schedule over the first half of the year, having toured to SXSW and back across the country, and then having toasted the country on the massive Summer Southern Lord package tour alongside labelmates Burning Love, Martyrdöd, Black Breath and others, Enabler took a bit of time to regroup. The new incarnation of this crushing riff engine contains founding guitarist/vocalist Jeff Lohrber (Today Is the Day, Trap Them, Harlots) and bassist Amanda Daniels, who now induct new drummer Dave Mann (Mouth of the Architect, ex-Rune) and new guitarist Eric Dunn (By Way of Sunstorm, ex Harlots), re-solidifying the outfit’s lineup and setting Enabler up to wage war on false metal once again.
Enabler’s energetic, hook-laden brutality stands as some of the most infectious metallic hardcore within the modern scene. The Wisconsin warriors have developed a devout fanbase over recent years through a plethora of indie and DIY releases and diehard touring. The band’s Southern Lord debut All Hail the Void surges with 35-minutes of the band’s most lethal material to date which has pillaged media outlets internationally since its release in July.
