How come I seem to get sick after doing literally anything these days?
Wayfarer and Wake are touring together this December. Unfortunately, it’s only a handful of dates, none of which are need me, but take a look at the full schedule here. If you can get to this one, do it, and make me jealous.
Some of the same people, but a very different vibe. Lykotonon revealed a new track from Promethean Pathology, titled “The Primal Principle”. Give it a listen here. That album is out on November 25 through Profound Lore.
Killswitch Engage have announced three shows in late December to celebrate the holiday season, in New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts. They’ll be joined by Rivers of Nihil and Unearth, so this is going to be a good time. Get tickets here.
Of course, it would be a mistake to not close with Darkthrone… lest I feel the wrath of Chris. So give “Caravan of Broken Ghosts” a listen immediately below. Astral Fortress is out on October 28 through Peaceville Records… which is a week from Friday. Damn.
Allegaeon have announced their new (old) vocalist, welcoming Ezra Haynes back to the group. Since Elements of the Infinite is still my favorite Allegaeon record, I’m fine with this. Catch them on the European road this coming November with Rivers of Nihil, Fallujah, and more.
Tribulation unveiled a new standalone single, “Hamartia”, the video for which can be seen below. That’s their first new material since last year’s Where The Gloom Becomes Sound, and precedes their upcoming European tour with Abbath and Watain.
Moving to the technical side of death metal, Catalyst are preparing an October release for their second album. A Different Painting For A New World will be out through Non Serviam Records, and I recommend pre-ordering that one here.
And we’re rounding things out with some black metal. Skare are releasing their self-titled debut on vinyl through Amor Fati Productions on September 12th. Naturally, we have a track from that album below. Give “Threshold Into Death” a listen right now.
I know I just referenced it yesterday, but we are officially one month away from Fire In The Mountains.
For now, we’ll stay focused on the items at hand. For example, The Contortionist have announced a headlining tour with Rivers of Nihil, with dates running this September and October. Tickets go on sale Friday at this location.
In the metalcore world, We Came As Romans have unveiled details surrounding their next album. Darkbloom will mark their first album in five years, and is set for an October 14th release through Sharptone Records. Check out the visualizer for “Plagued” here.
Hard rock quintet Wage War release Manic last October through Fearless Records, and today they shared a new live music video for “Godspeed”, taken from that album. Give it a watch here.
I guess we’re on the every other day plan this week. Oh well.
It does bring me some happiness to lead off with tour announcements, so we’ll do that today starting with Rivers of Nihil. They have May and June dates coming up with Fallujah, Alluvial, and Warforged. See all the dates and get your tickets here.
Switching gears a bit, Cremation Lily have announced details surrounding their debut through The Flenser. Dreams Drenched In Static is slated for an April 15th release and the first single, “Selfless”, can be heard here.
Nine Circles favorite Moon Tooth have set May 13th as the release date for Phototroph, which will be out through Pure Noise Records. Check out the clip for “Carry Me Home” below. Also worth mentioning that they have some live dates in April and May, which you should all take advantage of.
