Cock and Ball Torture Australian tour January 2013!

Posted by Lachlan

Germany's goregrind legends Cock and Ball TortureAbsolutely huge news for gore/grind fiends. German gore legends Cock and Ball Torture are heading down under in January 2013!

For that you can thank  Southern Extremeties Productions in association with Grindhead Records and Shananigans Entertainment.

Here's the press release:

A progenitor of pitch-shifted, porn influenced goregrind, and one of the most influential groups within the style, Germany's Cock and Ball Torture make their first ever trip "Down Under" at the very start of 2013.

After 3 full lengths and several EPs and splits, the group is known and loved worldwide for their catchy, grooving, down-tuned, rancid horegrind, and have a strong and supportive worldwide fan base on the back of their impressive discography and excellent live performances.

After 15 years together, and countless successful shows and tours, the lurid lads decided it was finally time to make a trip to the "Land Down Under", and give Australia a taste of the aural filth they've been dishing up for 1 and a 1/2 decades.

So this is it, the tour so many have wanted to see: Cock and Ball Torture - Bulldozing Australia 2013.
