| 24 June 2013 | Reply


June 24, 2013, Philadelphia – ASG, who recently released the critically-acclaimed album Blood Drive, have announced a handful of additional tour dates as well as a free download via Scion 10 Series Music Release.

The added dates include a stop with Mastodon on Aug. 14 at The Orange Peel in Asheville, N.C. and a pair of additional performances with Weedeater:  June 29 at Zydeco in Birmingham, Ala. and July 6 at The Launchpad in Albuquerque, N.M.  The band’s full tour routing is listed below.

The North Carolina quartet have also contributed a song to Scion’s 10thAnniversary compilation, titled “Mourning of the Earth,” the track is available for free download at

ASG recently celebrated their highest charting and most critically acclaimed album to date, the breakthrough release Blood Drive.  The twelve-song collection landed at #15 on Billboard’s Heat Seeker chart and also had impressive debuts on the trade magazine’s Hard Music (#32) and Indie (#67) charts.  The album is streaming via Bandcamp at

Stereogum said “Blood Drive is a heavy album, no question, but it’s primarily a catchy album, full of resin-sticky summertime metal.”  Revolver called the album “a catchy, melodic triumph of heavy music,” while Alternative Press asserted that “mentioning ASG in the same breath as riff-rockers Torche or Queens of the Stone Age is not only misleading, it might even be an understatement.”  Artist Direct went even further saying “every now and again a band puts out a record that changes the tides for them” and continued by describing Blood Drive as a “tipping point moment.”

A video for “Day’s Work,” filmed by guitarist/vocalist Jason Shi, will premiere shortly.
