Atreyu has also announced a fairly massive U.S. tour this coming November and December. They’ll be supported by Tetrarch, Crown The Empire, Saul, and Defying Decay. Tickets go on sale this coming Friday, but there’s always a pre-sale code for those that want it.
I have officially stocked the fridge with more spring appropriate beers.
Let’s start with Emperor, who are marking their 30 years of existence with a livestream event titled “A Night of Emperial Wrath 2021”. The event is scheduled for May 23rd and will include guest appearances from Faust and Mortiis. Tickets are available here.
And we’ll close Tuesday with the new single and video from Desaster for “Learn to Love the Void”. That track comes with the announcement of a new album, Churches Without Saints, which will be out on June 4th through Metal Blade Records.
This week get you down? Too much monkey business? All of the above? It’s Saturday. Finally. Put the week in your rearview and focus on our Saturday morning mixtape of things we’ve been cranking this week. We’ve got a Slay At Home performance from The Lion’s Daughter, some Opeth, YOB, Schammasch, Hammer King, Beggar, Cloud Rat, Craven Idol, and several more from all over the music spectrum. So, let the rough side drag and jam with us.
I am very tired today. Must be the fact that I exercised for a change?
We’ll start with Crown, because I’ve found myself listening to a lot of The End of All Things recently. They released a new video for “Illumination” today, the latest to drop in advance of the aforementioned album’s release. The End of All Things will be available on April 16th through Pelagic Records.
And now for something (relatively) different! Did you ever wonder what it would be like if a band like August Burns Red covered the “Westworld” theme song? Well, wonder no more! Honestly, I’m kind of into it. Fun fact: I’ve tried watching that show on three separate occasions and always end up getting lost.
And finally, as I was saying, new Gojira is obviously the most important news of the day. Fortitude drops on April 30th, and can be pre-ordered here. Below you’ll find the clip for the new track, “Born For One Thing”, which brings all the riffs.
