Withered Announce North American Tour

Though I received this one earlier today, I decided to wait until the deep dark cold of the winters night to share it with you. It seemed appropriate and well, truth be told there have been a lot of tour announcements to serve up so check out the latest low down with the crushing Metal might of Withered who will be hitting the road very soon.

The Press Release:
WITHERED have announced a new leg of North American tour dates. The Cvlt Nation-sponsored tour kicks off on March 24 and sees support come from WAKE. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

Regarding the tour, WITHERED guitarist Mike Thompson comments, “After 6 months of one-off shows, a little writing, and regrouping, we can’t handle not being on the road any longer. So, we invited Canadian grinders, WAKE to join us late this winter for an eastern North America run. We plan to bring a new show with some songs we haven’t played in over a decade and can’t wait to reintroduce some of Withered’s back catalogue to new and old fans. It’s going to be one for the books.”

WITHERED are touring in support of their new album, ‘Grief Relic’. The album, hailed as “a smarter and more sophisticated version of Withered, staking out territory in a more expansive landscape.” (Stereogum) is streaming now at the official WITHERED bandcamp page.

Label News: Season Of Mist Records Signs Abysmal Dawn

I’m taking a breather from all of the concert tour and television postings since there have been so many of them lately to share the latest news from the American Death Metal band known as Abysmal Dawn who are moving on from Relapse Records and starting a new relationship with Season Of Mist Records. The full press release is below for you to peruse and then I will close up with some thoughts. Sink your teeth into this one.

The Press Release:
ABYSMAL DAWN have signed a multi-album deal with France-based Season of Mist Records.

“We’re very happy to be signed to such an awesome and respected label like Season of Mist,” says ABYSMAL DAWN. “The people there are all die-hard metalheads and we’re glad to be a part of such an enthusiastic and strong team. We also have a long-standing friendship with U.S. label manager Gordon Conrad, who originally signed us. Working with Gordon, Michael, and the other amazing people at the label was just a no-brainer. We’re very excited about the future of ABYSMAL DAWN these days, and judging by the new material that we’ve been working on, great things are to come.”

The members of ABYSMAL DAWN are currently ensconced at an undisclosed Los Angeles location, where they’re invoking the elder gods to power new material for their as-yet-untitled fifth full-length and follow-up to 2014’s ‘Obsolescence’. The Village Voice called Obsolescence “tirelessly inventive”, eventually crowning ABYSMAL DAWN the #1 spot on their 10 Best Metal Albums year-end list. Early samples of ABYSMAL DAWN’s Season of Mist debut demonstrate the trio’s newfound power, ingenuity, and songcraft. Certainly, ABYSMAL DAWN’s new opus picks up where ‘Obsolescence’ left off, but it promises so much more.

Formed in 2004, ABYSMAL DAWN quickly impressed on fan and band alike. The group’s three-song demo landed ABYSMAL DAWN a contract with Arizona-based Crash Music. Within a year, the group were holed up with engineer John Haddad (INTRONAUT, HIRAX) at Shiva Industries recording their debut, ‘From Ashes’. Released in 2006, ‘From Ashes’ was praised for its tactful balance of brutality, melody, and atmosphere, earning heavy praise from media outlets. Blabbermouth gushed, calling it, “irreproachably constructed.” Follow-up album, ‘Programmed to Consume’, again engineered by Haddad, was released in 2008 following a higher profile deal with Relapse Records. Immediately, the press heralded ‘Programmed to Consume’—“thinking man’s metal” said AllMusic.
