Four out of five on the Canto posts. Oh well, I guess Corey’s eating a shoe. Anyway, here’s some news to close out your week:
- Leading off, it’s new-release Friday! A whole bunch of great bands dropped new stuff today, including Imperial Triumphant, Deafheaven, Obscura and more. Check out Josh’s full list in this week’s Initial Descent post here.
- Providence, RI vets Daughters released “Satan in the Wait,” their first song in more than eight years. The band also announced they’d signed with Ipecac Recordings, with plans to release an album sometime later this year.
- In conjunction with their upcoming appearance at Massachusetts’ RPM Fest, Tombs have announced a series of tour dates with Barishi during late August and early September. The New York show will see them opening for the mighty Godflesh. That…may be something I need to dabble in.
- Maryland Deathfest released its second wave of lineup announcements for next year’s festival. Highlights from this round? Cryptic Slaughter, Naglfar, Fleshcrawl, Devourment, Dead in the Manger, Daeva and more. I…don’t see how I’m going to resist this thing.
- Prophecy Productions and Invisible Oranges are teaming up on Prophecy Fest, a two-day festival at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory featuring bands from the label. The first band to be confirmed is new label signees Year of the Cobra, but stay tuned for further announcements. Prophecy Fest will take place on November 2 and 3.
- There’s a new Deicide song called “Excommunicated” out, too. Sorta over Deicide, but this is pretty fun. Their new album’s out in September on Century Media.
- And what the hell, why not close things out with some synthwave? UK institution Gunship shared the title track of their upcoming album, Dark All Day, earlier today. Check it out below:
Dark All Day will be out October 5 via NewRetroWave Records, and you can bet your ass this guy’ll be checking it out. Anyway, that’ll do us for now. Have a good weekend, and check back soon for more!
Keep it heavy,
