Poison the Well kick off brief reunion tour at Backbooth

Back in the heady, sweltering days of the Florida post-hardcore renaissance (circa 1997-2001), Miami's Poison the Well held a place near the top of the metalcore pantheon. They gained a devoted following on the strength of their doomy riffs, screamy vocals and super-moshable breakdowns: the perfect soundtrack for a generation of angsty youths with nothing to do but go to matinee shows. This show kicks off an extremely short (only five dates) reunion tour for the band. While founding guitarist Derek Miller has skipped this limited reunion tour to focus on his work with his successful noise-pop project, Sleigh Bells, previous reunion shows in New York and New Jersey were reportedly as sweaty and thrashy as ever.
