After a solid month on the road in support of the almighty Goatwhore as part of the Metal Alliance tour, BLACK TUSK stops into RVA after a noticeable absence in town. These thrash/doom/punk/swamp metal freaks have been doing it hard for well over a decade and even god himself couldn't take them down with the untimely passing of brother Athon. Black Tusk is the sound of southern metal perseverance and throughout their lengthy and diverse career they continue to remain a dominant force in American heavy music. They'll be joined by some very special guests TBA soon.

Black Tusk
Black Tusk
American Heavy Metal band from Savannah, Georgia. The band formed in 2005, when its members were all living on the same street.

Black Tusk is mostly associated with Baroness and Kylesa, for their shared hometown of Savannah, as well as for their Sludge Metal sound. The band is linked to Baroness' guitarist and vocalist John Dyer Baizley, who is also a painter and created most of Black Tusk's artwork. Black Tusk's members described their music as "Swamp Metal". The term is a reference to the climate of Savannah in relation to the music that the band created.

Bassist and vocalist Jonathan Athon passed away on 9 November 2014 from injuries sustained from a motorcycle accident that happened two days earlier. In December 2014 it was announced that Corey Barhorst would take his place for the time being. In 2018 Chris 'Scary' Adams joined the band.
