Santa Cruz doomsters DUSTED ANGEL have been confirmed as direct support for fellow Californians and stoner rock legends Fu Manchu on their upcoming home state tour! The tour kicks off on January 13th and will see the DUSTED ANGEL opening for Fu in Silverlake, Santa Cruz, San Francisco and San Diego throughout the state, with more dates with DA-only to be scheduled around these appearances.

DUSTED ANGEL’s debut full-length Earth Sick Mind was released on Mankind Records in November, boasting seven anthems bridging the early hardcore roots of the band’s members with a crushing stoner rock groove. They’ve slammed their way up and down the West Coast US for the past 2 years, continuing to build on their diehard fanbase, and in 2011, plan on taking their doom to the road throughout other parts of the country. Stay tuned for more live updates and tours throughout the year.

“…a stoner dream from start to finish, incorporating dusty, doom metal elements with a hint of California sunshine added for good measure. Dusted Angel’s doom falls in line with traditional acts like 70’s era Pentagram and Saint Vitus’ more rockin’ moments, which is to say, a fine thing indeed.” – Metal-Rules “
…no doom fan should miss out on Dusted Angel.” – Hellride Music
“…a solid band with a wealth of experience that more than pays off on Earth Sick Mind. They’ve played with Fu Manchu, Nebula, Saviours, Saint Vitus and Black Cobra, and I can wholeheartedly recommend Dusted Angel to any fan of those bands.” – The Sleeping Shaman “…plenty of huge, infectious riffs, a thick production with a nicely audible bass, hard hitting percussion, and a gruff wail from vocalist Clifford Dinsmore all come together to produce a solid stoner metal album.” – About.com
