WITHERED will headline one night of the Blood the Wolf Festival. The band will make a rare appearance at the Lexington, KY festival on Friday, March 23, and continue through their previously announced Winter 2018 tour with WAKE. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

Regarding the tour, WITHERED guitarist Mike Thompson comments, “After 6 months of one-off shows, a little writing, and regrouping, we can’t handle not being on the road any longer. So, we invited Canadian grinders, WAKE to join us late this winter for an eastern North America run. We plan to bring a new show with some songs we haven’t played in over a decade and can’t wait to reintroduce some of Withered’s back catalogue to new and old fans. It’s going to be one for the books.


WITHERED are touring in support of their new album, ‘Grief Relic’. The album, hailed as “a smarter and more sophisticated version of Withered, staking out territory in a more expansive landscape.” (Stereogum) is streaming now at the official WITHERED bandcamp page. The highly anticipated full-length is available across multiple CD and LP formats here.
