Super late canto because sometimes life be like that.
TRVE Brewing’s 11th anniversary event is officially set for June 24 at the Gothic Theatre in Englewood, Colorado. The lineup features Godflesh, Sumerlands, Stormkeep, and more. If I lived out that way… you know I would be there. Anyway, here’s your ticket link (they go on sale Friday).
Abrams have announced a run of shows out West with BleakHeart, which covers a good chunk of May. They’ll be promoting their latest release, In The Dark, which is available through Small Stone Recordings.
Jesus Piece released “Silver Lining”, the latest from …So Unknown. Give it a listen here. That album is slated for an April 14 release through Century Media.
Closing out, we have Nine Circles favorite The Wraith. They’re back with their new vocalist Harley Mace, and a video for “Overthrown” can be seen below. You can also snag it through Bandcamp. That’s taken from Ghost March, which we’ll look out for later this year.
Last one of these this week, because apparently I’m flying somewhere tomorrow.
Let’s lead off with some new Wo Fat! The psychedelic doom veterans unveiled an epic new 14-minute single titled “Orphans of the Singe”. Check it out here. That’s taken from their upcoming new album, The Singularity, which drops on May 6th through Ripple Music.
We’re going to close out the day with The Wraith. The video for “Toil” (from 2019’s Gloom Ballet) has surfaced as a tribute to frontman Davey Bales, who sadly passed away a couple months ago. RIP. Give it a watch below.
Welcome to another Saturday mixtape, friends. Today we bring you a triple dose of Intronaut, a new Cirith Ungol song (which is not something I thought I’d ever get to say), and a host of other jams of various and sundry genres. As always, take a listen below.
