The Dread Crew of Oddwood‘s mighty landlocked Lawful Evil North American tour will see the band keelhauling audiences with this grog-soaked barrage in the flesh for thirty-three days between August 12th and September 30th. The itinerary is mixed with a wide array of standard music venues as well as Renaissance Faires. The four Canadian gigs and two in Florida will also see the outfit joined by Wilderun, and the opening show in Los Angeles on August 12th will include a special one-off West Coast set by fellow seafaring cohorts, Swashbuckle.
Declares the outfit’s Stark Cordwain on the upcoming raid, “We are returning to some of our favorite North American cities, armed to the beards with fresh acoustic antics! Lawful Evil is coming for you, so crack open a fine whiskey, get ready to party, and hold onto your butts!”
Gear Gods offers that Lawful Evil is, “A fully acoustic band playing pirate music that isn’t corny or too ren-fair-y – it’s just badass.” Angry Metal Guy commends the band as, “strong songwriters with a knack for hooks and effective time management.” We Love Metal’s praise-filled review includes, “The heaviness is there song after song, and although I’m not a big fan of comparing bands to one another, when it comes to THE DREAD CREW think of Dropkick Murphy’s drunk; kicking the shit out of Alestorm.” Cryptic Rock proclaimed, “Making the audience feel as if they were in the 1500s at a pub filled with rum-drunk pirates, their music was melodic with pounding drums and catchy choruses.” National Rock Review dubbed the record, “an entertainingly fun hour of some of the best folk metal you would ever hear,” and Toilet Ov Hell commends, “The lack of amps and electric instruments only strengthens the band’s throwback sound, allowing all the instruments time to shine.”
