U.S. Tour Announced By Castle, “Black Widow” Video Clip Available

Newly relocated to the Mojave Desert where writing for a fifth full-length is currently underway, occult rock alchemists Castle will be taking a break from conjuring the as-of-yet untitled album, to take on another round of live takeovers.

The perpetually road-bound unit will take to the streets later this month on the previously announced “Stormbringer” trek which will run from June 30th in West Hollywood, California through July 9th in Las Vegas, Nevada. The band will play three more shows the following month before kicking off the “Endless Graveyard” tour set to commence on September 7th in Riverside, California and come to a close on September 30th in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Castle will make some festival stops throughout the upcoming journey, including performances at the Fire In The Mountains in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Tour Of The Doomed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Shadow Woods Metal Fest in White Hall, Maryland, and the Stoned Meadow Of Doom Fest in Omaha, Nebraska. Since the release of the most recent offering, “Welcome To The Graveyard,” issued last summer via Ván Records, Castle’s massive 170-date world takeover has included tours of the US, Europe, Canada, and the band’s first ever tour of Japan last December.

Apothesary Announces New Album “Accept Loss Forever”

Fresh from a successful tour of the western U.S., the Northern California-based death metal/core quartet Apothesary has finished recording a sophomore full-length album. Titled “Accept Loss Forever,” the album has been described by the band as an “ode to suffering” and will be issued by M-Theory Audio on July 7th, 2017.

Taking advantage of a break in the busy touring schedule of his other band Hatchet, guitarist Clayton Cagle and his Apothesary band mates – guitarist/vocalist Jared Eandi, drummer Greg O’Neill and bassist Brittany Shankle – spent much of April on the road in support of 2016 EP “Sensory Overload.”

That was all just a precursor for “Accept Loss Forever,” which Cagle describes as an emotional and cathartic album that painstakingly captures the group’s evolution, musically and personally.

“’Accept Loss Forever’ is the true definition of ‘coming of age,’ as some of its material dates back to 2012 – when our average age was just 17 – and spans over half the life of the band,” he explains. “That makes these songs special, because they’re the most accurate representation of our growth both as a band and as human beings. Every significant moment of our transition from adolescence to adulthood has a place on this record, and I don’t know where I would be right now if I didn’t have this outlet to help put life in perspective. It is my hope that the music on this record helps someone else in the same way it helped me, and the rest of Apothesary, to write. We can’t thank the M-Theory team more for believing in us enough to make this release a reality.”

Apothesary will next perform live on May 27th, headlining the seventh annual Metalfest of Middletown in Northern California. Later this summer, the group will share the stage with M-Theory label mates Helsott and Sicocis at Hollywood’s legendary Viper Room. Additional tour dates will be announced shortly.

3Teeth Posts Full New Album Online

LA industrial group 3Teeth today released “Shutdown.exe” on OMF Records. Fans can now purchase and stream the record at all digital retailers and indie record stores – listen in below.

Over the last few years, 3Teeth has quickly evolved from a provocative underground act to a band on the cusp of becoming one of rock’s most exciting new bands. 2016 found the group opening for the likes of Tool, and this year that meteoric rise continues with the release of 2nd full-length album, “Shutdown.exe.”

Self-produced by the band, mixed by Sean Beavan, and mastered by Howie Wienberg, the new album is a brooding record that seethes with relentless aggression and unrepentant attitude.

The band will embark on spring/summer tour in late May supporting the album, which kicks off with a performance at Blackest of the Black Festival in Silverado, CA and includes dates with Rammstein and headlining shows across the country.

3teeth Posts “Away From Me” Music Video

Los Angeles’ thriving industrial band 3Teeth today premieres a video for brand-new single, “Away From Me.” The track is found on the band’s upcoming album, “shutdown.exe,” which is due out on May 19th via OMF Records.

Alexis Mincolla (vocals) comments: “I believe we live in very regressive times despite our huge advances in technology and communication. We’re still territorially pissing like cavemen, and the tragedy of the commons has become an accepted way of life.

“The song is really about how strong willed minds can still stay autonomous and empowered even in the face of all this. I wanted the video to represent this from a human story rather than a political one as it’s becoming more and more apparent that geopolitics outweigh the human experience in terms of what is navigating our world.”

3Teeth will be mounting a spring/summer tour in May in support of the album, which kicks off with a performance at Blackest of the Black Festival in Silverado, CA and includes dates with Rammstein and headlining shows across the country.
