We’ll start with Gojira, since they are fresh off the release of Fortitude and all. They’ve got a handful of headlining dates here in the United States this coming September and October, which does include a couple festival appearances. Tickets go on sale Friday, and you know I’ll be ready to jump on that.
And the second tour I wanted to highlight today is headlined by Beartooth. Those are August and September dates, with support from Wage War and Dragged Under. Tickets go on sale Friday as well. And while you’re at it, you may as well pre-order Below, which is out June 25th via Red Bull Records.
And then we have a new video from Culted for “Crush My Soul”, which we will round things out with. That Godflesh cover is taken from Nous, which dropped back in February. Pick it up here if you hadn’t already done so.
Boris are releasing a visual (streaming) party for the release of NO. The viewing period start on May 1st and will run through the 10th. The video was shot with a 360 degree camera, making this thing pretty damn immersive. A tour “in your head”, as it’s described. Here’s the link to the Boris YouTube channel, for when the time comes.
I suppose we can wrap up with some more melodic metal. This is the new video (as of last Friday) from Dead Atlantic for “Falling into the Grave”. That track is taken from Lost, which drops this year through Zombie Shark Records.
I don’t know about you but the live show wait has nearly come to a sudden stop with the announcement of Deicide hitting the road AND coming near me. As far as this show goes, August can’t come soon enough and if any of you are near or somewhat near the ATL, hit me up. Alrighty, we’re back, again, for another installment of “what’s new and exciting this week.” Answer: plenty. Goregäng return from the crypts of death with a few new tracks and a few live tracks, everyone’s favorite hard hitters Gojira offer up album number seven—finally, Mortifero cover that dark folk space I love so much, and ewïg frost continue their reign of beer swillin’, liquor shooting, excellent speed metal. And that’s just the start of a lengthy list that follows. So, hop to it.
Oh look, another new Gojira track. Check out the lyric video for “Into The Storm“, the latest taken from Fortitude. I haven’t listened to this one yet, but I will say that April 30th release date suddenly feels somewhat close, and I am quite excited.
And we’ll close with the new track from Myronath titled “Evigt Mörker”. That one is taken from their upcoming new album, Djevelkraft, which will be out through Hellstain Productions sometime in the near future. Not sure exactly when, I didn’t look very hard.
I was going to skip this today, but there is just way too much going on.
What better way to welcome the weekend than with a new Hypocrisy album announcement. Kind of! Based on today’s update, the new album is recorded and mastered, and at this point we’re just waiting on a release date… and basically every other detail. Either way, I’ll take it!
And we have to close with the new track from Gojira, titled “Amazonia”. Most importantly, proceeds from the song benefit The Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (APIB), who advocate for environmental and cultural rights of indigenous tribes in the Amazon. So, good stuff all around with this one. Fortitude is out on April 30th.
