Eyehategod are celebrating 30 years of Take as Needed for Pain with a U.S. tour where they’ll be accompanied by Goatwhore. Not gonna lie, I would love to get to one of these dates. That run starts on April 8 in Atlanta, and includes a full performance of that album at Decibel Metal & Beer Fest in Philly.
