Formed in early 2001 in Pereira, Colombia, Headcrusher blends thrash, death metal and hardcore for a brutal sound that helped them become one of South America’s more well-known metal acts. The band moved to Austin in the summer of 2008, and eventually released their self-titled debut EP the following year.
Since moving to Texas, the band landed an official SXSW slot alongside SA’s Upon A Burning Body and in 2012 were asked to play “Barge To Hell”, the world's first extreme metal cruise.
To promote their new album, which comes out July 28, Headcrusher is going out on tour through Texas and Colombia with their first stop right here in SA. With Toluca, Nahaya, Percocet, $5-$8, 9pm Wed. July 12, thelimelightsa.com.
