So many shows this summer! Lots of folks are hitting the road. False is jamming out for 30+ shows in a month, encircling the entire US. Thou will join them for a portion of those dates. Barghest are leaving the swamp to head North for a bit, all the way to Canada, and also have a new song up on their Bandcamp page. And Northless will join up with Primitive Man to bring sonic destruction to much of the West Coast.

I am quite pleased to finally announce pre-orders are open for two incredible records.
Barghest – The Virtuous Purge LP (w/optional t-shirt package option)
Baton Rouge black metal project Barghest return in 2014 with a new full-length, The Virtuous Purge. On this follow up to 2011’s Untitled LP (Gilead Media/Howling Mine), and 2012 split 12″ with False (Gilead Media/Mirror Universe), Barghest emerge from the shadows with a refined sound and an increased intensity.
Though their past recordings were deeply rooted in the realm of lo-fi black metal, with The Virtuous Purge, Barghest have shifted their focus, crafting subtle hints of death and doom throughout their new work without abandoning the harsh anti-human/anti-life aesthetic. This amalgam was brought to life under the guidance of recording engineer James Whitten, who worked with Barghest to tread this new sonic ground. Long-time fans will notice the significant change in recording fidelity as James and Barghest have taken a different approach to production, all the while remaining true to the vicious aggression and atmosphere for which Barghest are known.
The Virtuous Purge was mixed by James Whitten, mastered by Adam Tucker, and features artwork
by Hal Rotter.
1.5″ button and patch included with all pre-orders. Clear vinyl limited to 200 pieces.
Also available in a package deal alongside the new Barghest shirt featuring Hal Rotter’s artwork for the album. T-shirts are printed on Next Level Apparel 100% ringspun cotton t-shirts. These are somewhat similar in fit and feel to an American Apparel shirt.
Thou – Heathen 2LP (US Pressing)
The U.S. pressing of the newest Thou full-length is now finally available after months of pressing plant setbacks.
Self-released by the band, Gilead Media is handling online pre-orders.
1000 copies. 180g Black vinyl. Gatefold tip-on jackets.
