Weedeater is a sludge metal band formed in Wilmington, North Carolina in 1997 with members from the recently defunct Buzzov•en. The band has released four full length albums. In April 2007, the band signed on to the Southern Lord record label.

In January 2010, vocalist "Dixie" Dave Collins lost his big toe in an accident involving his "favorite shotgun", causing the recording of their fourth album to stall.[1]

Weedeater has just been signed to French metal label Season Of Mist for an as-yet-untitled fifth album.[2]
