(January 30th, 2018) – Our respected metal overlords in GOATWHORE will set sail this week on the 2018 edition of the 70000 Tons of Metal Cruise alongside Cannibal Corpse, Exhumed, Enslaved, Meshuggah, and many more noteworthy acts. The hefty sea-bound voyage, which runs from February 1st through February 5th, comes in anticipation of GOATWHORE’s bone-crunching month-long European tour with Sepultura, Obscura, and Fit For An Autopsy. A complete list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

The band’s frontman, Ben Falgoust, is beyond overhyped, stating in a recent video post,

“I just want to let [you all] know how happy we are to be part of 70000 Tons of Metal… Hopefully you will get on the boat!”

70000 Tons of Metal Cruise offers 4 days worth of 60 live bands in the ultimate metal experience. Departing from Port Everglades in Florida, the cruise routes through the Turks and Caicos Islands in the Caribbean, all the while giving you an unrestricted festival access. We’re talking 120 live shows on board, 70000 Tons of Karaoke until sunrise, Jamming With Waters In International Waters- the official 70000 Tons of Metal All Star Jam which purportedly writes Metal History every year, clinics and workshops with the musicians, and so much more. And, perhaps best yet, the bars never close.
