A trio of swell metal shows is headed to Tampa Bay this week. Get details on the concerts below.
Eyehategod w/The Obsessed/Antiseen Just 16 dates are on Eyehategod’s spring tour, and this April 11 Ybor City gig finds the band — dubbed “one of America’s great live bands” by Rolling Stone — nearing the end of the run (the tour’s hometown finale is on Saturday in New Orleans), so expect the sludge-rock icons to be fully ready to bring all of their bravado to a potentially sold-out Crowbar. crowbarybor.com
The Plot In You w/LMTF/Dayseeker/Limbs Local group done good, Limbs, opens this April 12 hardcore gig at Crowbar headlined by The Plot In You, which recently pivoted away from its own hardcore roots. The Plot In You’s latest album, Dispose, finds vocalist Landon Tewers ditching big breakdowns and screaming and trading them in for almost R&B-esque clean vocals, a touch of electronics and catchy melodies. crowbarybor.com
Hatebreed w/Obituary/Terror/Cro-Mags/Fit For an Autopsy A juggernaut hard-rock and metal lineup lands at The Ritz in Ybor City on Monday, April 15 thanks to Connecticut’s Hatebreed, which is celebrating 25 years of bandom alongside two influential bands, Cro-Mags and Tampa’s own Obituary. “I can’t believe it’s been 25 years already,” Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta said in a release. “Every band on this bill is a headliner in their own right. The show will be run festival-style with bands you don’t want to miss playing early. Activate the pit!” theritzybor.com
