NYHC kingpins MERAUDER have locked down a string of new live dates for May throughout North America. They kick off the brutality with a pair of California shows, followed by MERAUDER’s headlining appearance at 5/9 Fest in Las Vegas where they’ll be filming for an upcoming DVD. Following the fest they’ll play their way south and cross the border into Mexico for a five-date stretch. They round out the end of the month with two shows in New York (Albany/Brooklyn) alongside state-mates All Out War. They’ve also been confirmed to play the Metalliaurinko Festival in Harjavalta, Finland in early June.

MERAUDER’s latest album God Is I was released last August, their first for Regain Records. Quoted as being the hardcore assassins’ most brutal album to date, the stylized crunch of God Is I shows the band at their most inspired and invigorated in years with its runaway freight train grooves, mid-pace stomps, seething gang vocals and death metal drenched riffs all built into the band’s patented metallic hardcore delivery.
