At least it’s finally nice out and stuff. Mondays still suck.
It looks as though Cloak is going to spend most of 2022 on the road, and that is good news for all of us. Following their current run with Acid Witch, they’ll embark on a brief tour with Bewitcherin June and July. No dates near me, unfortunately.
Tomorrow is going to be a long one. Anyway, not much to share here but I’m sure we’ll find something.
Most importantly, we’ll lead off with the Wilderun headlining tour, set to kick off on June 2nd in Atlanta, and wrapping up on the 10th in Boston. Tickets are available here. I’m really hoping to get to at least one of those dates. Wilderun rules.
Next up we have The World Without Us, who are releasing a new EP on July 8th, titled Body Forth. Check out the video for “Eden”, premiered by The Circle Pit. Side note: I bet the world without us would be a wonderful, wonderful place.
Hyperspace Metal Festival announced 2023 details, and they don’t suck! The Vancouver festival will feature Exmortus, Striker, Judicator and more, and is set for April 13th through 15th next year. Should be a good time. Here’s the ticket link.
We’ll wrap up our Monday with Dawn Of Solace, who are following up the January release of Flames Of Perdition with a new EP, titled Notes Of Perdition. That drops on May 20th through Noble Demon. Check out the acoustic studio video for “Event Horizon” directly below.
Watain and Mayhem are touring North America this coming March. The tour kicks off on the 7th in San Francisco and wraps up on April 3rd in Joliet, and additional support is in the form of Midnight. Watain has also just finished recording their latest full-length, which should drop early next year through Nuclear Blast. Good stuff.
Voyager have announced a new special virtual show which they’ve titled “A Voyage Through Time”. The show will air on Sunday, September 5th, a date that also celebrates the launch of Voyager 1. Tickets can be acquired here, and more details are to follow soon (I hope).
Dawn Of Solace, the solo project of gothic death/doom icon Tuomas Saukkonen, has set November 12th as the release date for Flames of Perdition. The third album under that project will be out through Noble Demon, and can be pre-saved/ordered here.
Iron Maiden covers are entertaining, so I’ll link in this version of “Flight of Icarus” from White Wizzard. The track features regular touring vocalist Mikey Dean Gremio (ex-Cellador), which is a fun fact of sorts.
And we’ll wrap up with the latest fan-created Body Count video for “The Hate Is Real”. That’s the second such version for that track, which is taken from Carnivore (Century Media). Give it a watch below.
Alright, today was a little less stupid than yesterday, and I’ll take it.
Paladin has announced the “Shredocalypse” U.S. tour, which will also feature Immortal Guardian and Unleash the Archers for a couple of dates. The tour kicks off on August 17th and runs through September 11th, with more dates to be announced later, apparently.
Chicago-based black metal project Annihilus has announced a new album, Follow A Song From The Sky, which is set for an August 13th release through Federal Prisoner. Pre-order the album here, and keep an eye out for a new track titled “Draw the Beast”, which is floating around somewhere.
And we’ll wrap up our Tuesday with Mercury Circle, who have shared a track from their upcoming debut full-length, Killing Moons. That album is set for an October 8th release through Noble Demon, but you can peep the new clip for “Black Mirrors” below. Enjoy.
