Tombs' Frontman Upgrades Gear, Spring Tour Plans Still Uncertain
Keeping up the momentum, Tombs frontman Mike Hill has upgraded some of his gear for upcoming shows. "I picked up a Boss DD-6 Digital Delay Pedal to replace the Rocktron Short Timer," he told Noisecreep. "I'm also back to the Boss [CH-1] Super Chorus Pedal. It lends that sort of later '80s sheen to the guitar sound, similar to 'Best Wishes' by Cro-Mags."
Hill recently recapped his band's experience with Buried Inside, discussing the difficulties of being both a performer and tour manager. Tombs had recently announced a U.S. tour with Krallice and Ludicra, in which they would be the main support for Norwegian metal band, Mayhem, but sources at Relapse have confirmed that Mayhem did cancel their tour. Tombs will continue to play SXSW and around those dates, but it's still uncertain as to whether Tombs will go forth with the originally planned dates in April.
