TRAPPIST Announces First East Coast US Tour Dates: Ancient Brewing Tactics LP Out Now Through Relapse Records

 Los Angeles-based  TRAPPIST  - founded by alumni from the likes of Spazz, Infest, Despise You, -16-, Crom, and more - has booked their first East Coast US shows, supporting their inebriating debut album,  Ancient Brewing Tactics , which saw released through Relapse Records in August. The trio not only creates a debilitating blend of powerviolence/grindcore-infused hardcore, it also showcases their deep interest, knowledge, and pride in the creation and ingestion of craft beer.  Having performed across the West Coast over the past year,  TRAPPIST  will now raid the East Coast this fall. The shows see the band in Brooklyn, New York on November 16th, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware on the 17th, and Washington, DC on November 18th. These shows are taking place at beer-based events and at breweries. The Brooklyn show at Saint Vitus Bar is The Six Most Metal Breweries presents  No Corporate Beer NYC, which includes a solo doom set by Todd Haug, a 6MMB pilot screening, and a set by  TRAPPIST , with unlimited pours from 6-8pm by KCBC, Barrier, Transmitter, Bridge and Tunnel,  TRAPPIST  x Wayfinder collaboration Steinbier poured by the band, and a cash bar featuring Burial, Trve, and the first keg of 3 Floyds Zombie Dust ever distributed to NYC! The Rehoboth Beach show takes place at Dogfish Head Brewing's Analog A Go Go festival event, and the DC show takes place at Atlas Brew Works.  Upon their return to California,  TRAPPIST  will play at Decibel Magazine's inaugural Beer & Metal Fest Los Angeles on December 1st and 2nd, set to perform alongside the likes of Testament, Triptykon, Godflesh, The Black Dahlia Murder, Khemmis, Pig Destroyer, Yob, Power Trip, and others, with a wide array of craft breweries set to fill the joint with high quality suds.  The  TRAPPIST  crew declares, "We're taking our 'talents' to the Eastern Seaboard this November so hide your high-ABV libations and Anti-Cimex records."   TRAPPIST Tour Dates:   11/16/2018 Saint Vitus Bar - Brooklyn, NY @ No Corporate Beer NYC [ info ]  11/17/2018 Dogfish Head Brewing - Rehoboth Beach, DE @ Analog A Go Go [ info ]  11/18/2018 Atlas Brew Works - Washington, DC [ info ]  12/01-02/2018 The Wiltern - Los Angeles, CA @ Decibel Beer & Metal Fest Los Angeles [ info ]   Ancient Brewing Tactics  is out now on CD, LP, and digital platforms. See the "Victims Of A Bomber Raid" and "No Soldier Left Behind" videos, the "Hymn To Ninkasi" lyric video, and stream the entire album alongside preorder options at Relapse.com   HERE   and via digital services   HERE  .   TRAPPIST  is bassist/vocalist/brewer Chris Dodge (Spazz, ex-Infest, ex-Despise You, etc.), guitarist/vocalist/fermenter Phil Vera (Crom, Despise You, ex- -16-), and drummer/vocalist/bottler Ryan Harkins (co-owner of Grill 'Em All). The band has one clear mission: to annihilate the listener with a storm of d-beat, crust punk, powerviolence, and hardcore all in the name of BEER. Picture Discharge-style punk and Xeroxed WWII photos with bombs replaced by casks, cans, and kegs. Ancient Brewing Tactics  deploys twenty-one tracks in thirty-three minutes; booze-induced chaos, bound to knock you on your ass faster than shotgunning a 15% Russian Imperial Stout. The album features guest appearances by Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan), Steve Brooks (Torche), and Blake Harrison (Pig Destroyer). For the ultimate sensory experience,  TRAPPIST  has recommended a specific beer pairing for listeners to drink along to each song on the album.

KATAKLYSM Release New Animated Video For “…And Then I Saw Blood”

Death… Is Just The Beginning European Tour Starts This Thursday!

 Montréal based melodic death metallers  KATAKLYSM  will kick off the European leg of the    Death… Is Just The Beginning   tour with   label-mates  HYPOCRISY  and  THE SPIRIT  this Thursday!. Today, the band offer a new music video for  “…And Then I Saw Blood”  in celebration of the upcoming trek.   KATAKLYSM  explored a new creative and artistic side when they hired acclaimed Romanian visionary artist  Costin Chioreanu  to tell the story of  “…And Then I Saw Blood” . The video chronicles a post-apocalyptic world dominated by A.I. Two dying brothers are brought to a facility where their minds are uploaded into a digital virtual world dominated and controlled by oppressors of mankind. As hope appears to defy the system in place, the two brothers are forced to make a decision to either follow their human instinct or their new found conscious.   KATAKLYSM  frontman comments “ '…And Then I Saw Blood'  can be interpreted in many different ways as it has an open concept to it. Everyone can see it the way they want but we wanted an animated video done with an artistic flair.  Costin  was the perfect artist to do it. I told him the central theme of the track deals with the betrayal of two close friends. I asked him to bring in his own world on how he envisioned the song and theme.  Costin  totally out did himself in this futuristic but realistic interpretation of where we are headedas people continue to get absorbed by technology and this urge to create something bigger, stronger, and more intelligent in this obsession to become godlike."

ENSIFERUM Announces 2019 Path To Glory North American Headlining Tour

 After nearly four years of absence,  ENSIFERUM  has announced a full North American headlining tour. Set to begin January 5th and run through January 29th, support will be provided by Septicflesh as well as an additional opener still to be announced.  Comments bassist Sami Hinkka, "It's been way too many years since we rocked with our North American warrior brothers and sisters. So early 2019 we will set sails and head to your shores and we are not coming alone. We will join forces with a brilliant and ass kicking band, Septicflesh, and a special guest. What a way to start a new year! This tour will leave its mark on the history of metal so get your ticket in advance and get ready to mosh with us like there is no tomorrow. On this tour, we have no chance to play in  every  city that we would want to, so we are doing our best to return to North America for a second time in 2019. Stay tuned and see you soon!"  Following the trek,  ENSIFERUM  will also make an appearance on the 70,000 Tons Of Metal 2019 cruise. See all confirmed dates below.   ENSIFERUM w/ Septicflesh, special guest TBA:   1/05/2019 Baltimore Soundstage - Baltimore, MD  1/06/2019 Irving Plaza - New York, NY  1/07/2019 Brighton Music Hall - Boston, MA  1/08/2019 Imperial Bell - Quebec City, QC  1/09/2019 Corona Theatre - Montreal, QC  1/01/2019 Opera House - Toronto, ON  1/11/2019 Harpo's - Detroit, MI  1/12/2019 The Forge - Joliet, IL  1/13/2019 Skyway Theater - Minneapolis, MN  1/14/2019 The Riot Room - Kansas City, MO  1/15/2019 Oriental Theater - Denver, CO  1/17/2019 El Corazon - Seattle, WA  1/18/2019 Rickshaw Theatre - Vancouver, BC  1/19/2019 Hawthorne Theatre - Portland, OR  1/20/2019 Metro Opera House - Oakland, CA  1/21/2019 The Regent - Los Angeles, CA  1/22/2019 Club Red - Mesa, AZ  1/23/2019 Rockhouse Bar & Grill - El Paso, TX  1/24/2019 Gas Monkey Bar & Grill - Dallas, TX  1/25/2019 Come And Take It Live! - Austin, TX  1/26/2019 White Oak Music Hall - Houston, TX  1/28/2019 The Masquerade (Hell) - Atlanta, GA  1/29/2019 The Orpheum - Tampa, FL  1/31 - 2/04/2019 70,000 Tons Of Metal - Fort Lauderdale, FL  You can't talk about the true greats of folk-inspired melodic death metal without reverent mention of  ENSIFERUM , and with their latest album,  Two Paths , they once more affirm their place in the pantheons of the genre. Further building upon the thrilling metallic hybrid honed across six full-lengths,  Two Paths  is the Finnish quintet's most epic and far-reaching collection of songs to date as well as their most organic.  "When we made  One Man Army  (2015), we wanted it to sound more like a live album than a traditional studio album. With  Two Paths , we took that to the next level with analog recording, cutting down tracks and even recording songs without a click, and because of that there is a totally different kind of groove compared to most modern metal albums," notes Hinkka. While their ideas are huge and they consistently prove they have the talent to back them up, the band maintains the grounded MO that has served them so well over the years, with the results speaking for themselves. "It all comes down to writing music that sounds good to us and is fun to play live, and I would say  with Two Paths  we've done everything better than we ever have before."

So early 2019 we will set sails and head to your shores and we are not coming alone. We will join forces with a brilliant and ass kicking band, Septicflesh, and a special guest. What a way to start a new year! This tour will leave its mark on the history of metal so get your ticket in advance and get ready to mosh with us like there is no tomorrow. On this tour, we have no chance to play in every city that we would want to, so we are doing our best to return to North America for a second time in 2019. Stay tuned and see you soon!"

You can't talk about the true greats of folk-inspired melodic death metal without reverent mention of ENSIFERUM, and with their latest album, Two Paths, they once more affirm their place in the pantheons of the genre. Further building upon the thrilling metallic hybrid honed across six full-lengths, Two Paths is the Finnish quintet's most epic and far-reaching collection of songs to date as well as their most organic.

"When we made One Man Army (2015), we wanted it to sound more like a live album than a traditional studio album. With Two Paths, we took that to the next level with analog recording, cutting down tracks and even recording songs without a click, and because of that there is a totally different kind of groove compared to most modern metal albums," notes Hinkka. While their ideas are huge and they consistently prove they have the talent to back them up, the band maintains the grounded MO that has served them so well over the years, with the results speaking for themselves. "It all comes down to writing music that sounds good to us and is fun to play live, and I would say with Two Paths we've done everything better than we ever have before."

 Winston-Salem, NC-based progressive/experimental rock/metal quartet  STELLAR CIRCUITS  will release their upcoming album,   Ways We Haunt  , out November 9, 2018. The album was produced by renowned producer Jamie King ( Between The Buried And Me, Scale The Summit, The Contortionist ), and is available for pre-orders in  digital  and  physical/merch  formats. Select tracks are also available for streaming via Spotify.  Today,  STELLAR CIRCUITS  have revealed the second "Under the Surface" video blog in a new series of blogs running in advance of the release of   Ways We Haunt   detailing lyrical content, behind-the-scenes footage of recording, and more.

I think making music is one of those things that... help us make sense of what it's like..."

In addition to those elements,   Ways We Haunt  incorporates influences from the outer-sphere of metal and rock, past and present, reflecting out-of-the-box artists like  A Perfect Circle ,  Karnivool ,  Between The Buried And Me ,  The Contortionist  and beyond.   STELLAR CIRCUITS  formed in 2015 with the idea of creating progressively-minded music that resonates with the masses. The name "Stellar Circuits" is derived from the eight-circuit model of consciousness, a theory proposed in the 1970's about expanding consciousness and understanding the process of our mind as it pertains to existentialism. Although the music revolves heavily around introspection and self-reflection, this is also coupled with the importance of aesthetics and groove.  Creating music both intellectual and visceral,  STELLAR CIRCUITS  is nothing short of a vehicle - transporting the listener to places both chaotic and cathartic.    Ways We Haunt  track listing:   1.

SÂVER: Dark, Atmospheric Norwegian Unit Featuring Members Of Tombstones And Hymn Joins Pelagic Records

 Pelagic Records is pleased to welcome  SÂVER --  a new project featuring Ole Christian Helstad, Ole Ulvik Rokseth, and Markus Støle of Norway doom outfits Tombstones and Hymn -- to their expanding roster of engrossing bands.  "The idea of starting  SÂVER  was a consequence of ending something," comments Helstad. "In the beginning, it was a good mix of loss, in a way, and the excitement of a blank canvas. In hindsight, we shared a feeling of longing for an escape, getting away from the known, and immersing ourselves into something completely different... which is scary and exciting at the same time. It mirrors the band both in a literary sense, as well as the general mood during the writing process."  Self-described as, "heavy, spaced out darkness out of Oslo,"  SÂVER 's debut album,  They Came With Sunlight , will see release in early 2019. An album of sublime heaviness, shimmering moogs, fiery vocals, and a gnarly bass tone, fans of bands like Breach, The Old Wind, and Cult Of Luna, pay heed.   Until then, check out a SÂVER teaser at    THIS LOCATION   .    http://www.facebook.com/saveroslo    http://pelagic-records.com   http://www.facebook.com/pelagicrecords   http://www.instagram.com/pelagic_records

Tech-Death Icons GOROD Release Lyric Video for Title Track "Aethra"

Watch Here

New Full-Length Album, Aethra, out October 19, 2018 via Overpowered Records

Pre-Orders Available Now via Amazon | iTunes | Google Play

 Technical metal icons  GOROD  recently announced their upcoming 10-track album,   Aethra  , set to be released on October 19, 2018 via their new international label,Overpowered Records. The album is available to pre-order digitally via  Amazon ,  iTunes  and  Google Play , and in several physical formats via Overpowered Records'  merchandise site .  Today,  GOROD  revealed a brand new lyric video for the album's title track, "Aethra", available to view now via the band's YouTube channel:  https://youtu.be/BdpP-aAZhjs   Vocalist Julien Deyres says about the track:  "'Aethra' refers precisely to the complexity of naming, especially when it comes to distant entities both in space and time. Indeed, even among historians, the name Aethra is debated. Some see her as the mother of Theseus, others as Hyperion's wife, mother of Helios, Selene and Eos. The subject that actually caught my attention for this album is that of an Aethra (more frequently called Theia) who would be the mother of the moon. Moreover, there is a scientific theory mentioning that an asteroid collided with the Earth which left us a fragment that is still turning around us, and that appears and disappears completely every 28 days. Aethra is therefore the missing mother who left us the corpse of her offspring in orbit as a memory of the tragedy... but the purpose of the lyrics remains here to leave you all a personal 'substantial part of fantasy'!"   More recent videos from  GOROD :  "The Sentry" track stream:  https://youtu.be/ZTDP0Em9k5Q   Behind-the-scenes   Aethra   guitar + bass tracking video:  https://youtu.be/4-DbEVS1RYs   Behind-the-scenes   Aethra   drum tracking video:  https://youtu.be/2GUvzXdNg_Q     Aethra   album teaser:  https://youtu.be/_aifeqTfHxk   Produced and recorded by  GOROD  guitarist/mastermind Mathieu Pascal in his own Bud Studio, mixed at Dugout Studio by the outstanding Daniel Bergstrand ( Meshuggah, Behemoth, Decapitated, In    Flames ) and mastered by Lawrence Mackrory at Obey Mastering ( Decapitated, Nightrage ),   Aethra   is a profound progression in terms of production, songwriting and arrangements.  With   Aethra  ,  GOROD  transports the listener to a tragic and melancholic universe - a completely new level of darkness - while preserving what  GOROD  considers their tried and true core sound: incomparable groove, remarkable dexterity, and relentless technicality. But all the while, the band never sacrifices earworm hooks and unforgettable riffage.    Aethra  track listing:   1) Wolfsmond  2) Bekhten's Curse  3) Aethra  4) The Sentry  5) Hina  6) And the Moon Turned Black  7) Chandra and the Maiden  8) Goddess of Dirt  9) Inexorable  10) A Light Unseen  Vocalist Julien Deyres explains the concept behind   Aethra  ,  "The moon: a star, an allegory, a universal symbol that concerns all peoples and eras... this is the central theme of the lyrical concept of this album which is divided into ten texts that follow a form of parity in terms of genres: four titles are devoted to female lunar deities, four to male deities.

Technical metal icons GOROD recently announced their upcoming 10-track album, Aethra, set to be released on October 19, 2018 via their new international label,Overpowered Records. The album is available to pre-order digitally via AmazoniTunes and Google Play, and in several physical formats via Overpowered Records' merchandise site.

Today, GOROD revealed a brand new lyric video for the album's title track, "Aethra", available to view now via the band's YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/BdpP-aAZhjs

Vocalist Julien Deyres says about the track: "'Aethra' refers precisely to the complexity of naming, especially when it comes to distant entities both in space and time. Indeed, even among historians, the name Aethra is debated. Some see her as the mother of Theseus, others as Hyperion's wife, mother of Helios, Selene and Eos. The subject that actually caught my attention for this album is that of an Aethra (more frequently called Theia) who would be the mother of the moon. Moreover, there is a scientific theory mentioning that an asteroid collided with the Earth which left us a fragment that is still turning around us, and that appears and disappears completely every 28 days. Aethra is therefore the missing mother who left us the corpse of her offspring in orbit as a memory of the tragedy... but the purpose of the lyrics remains here to leave you all a personal 'substantial part of fantasy'!"

Produced and recorded by GOROD guitarist/mastermind Mathieu Pascal in his own Bud Studio, mixed at Dugout Studio by the outstanding Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, Behemoth, Decapitated, In

Flames) and mastered by Lawrence Mackrory at Obey Mastering (Decapitated, Nightrage), Aethra is a profound progression in terms of production, songwriting and arrangements.

With AethraGOROD transports the listener to a tragic and melancholic universe - a completely new level of darkness - while preserving what GOROD considers their tried and true core sound: incomparable groove, remarkable dexterity, and relentless technicality. But all the while, the band never sacrifices earworm hooks and unforgettable riffage.

Aethra track listing:

1) Wolfsmond

2) Bekhten's Curse

3) Aethra

4) The Sentry

5) Hina

6) And the Moon Turned Black

7) Chandra and the Maiden

8) Goddess of Dirt

9) Inexorable

10) A Light Unseen

Vocalist Julien Deyres explains the concept behind Aethra"The moon: a star, an allegory, a universal symbol that concerns all peoples and eras... this is the central theme of the lyrical concept of this album which is divided into ten texts that follow a form of parity in terms of genres: four titles are devoted to female lunar deities, four to male deities. The remaining two are respectively dealing with the universal symbolism of the owl and the star itself.

The concept is basically a study of different cults associated with the moon through the ages and peoples. Some themes are treated in a purely narrative way, some others in a more philosophical or poetic way, but generally it remains a personal reading of each myth, which aims to awaken critical thought as much as evasion."

 French noise rock trio  SOFY MAJOR  will unleash their long-awaited fourth full-length this January! Titled  Total Dump , the follow-up to 2015's triumphant  Waste  LP was recorded and mixed by Dave Curran (Unsane, Big Business) at Black Box Studios, mastered by Carl Saff (Fu Manchu, Rosetta, KEN mode, Child Bite) at Saff Mastering, and delivers eleven rocked out, Big-Muff-powered tracks of relentlessly raw, driving, melody. Fans of Unsane, Harvey Milk, The Jesus Lizard, Coliseum, and the like pay heed.   Total Dump  will be released January 25th on limited edition vinyl via Corpse Flower Records with Deadlight Entertainment and Antena Krzyku handling the CD and vinyl releases in Europe respectively. Corpse Flower's vinyl edition will come in three color variants - 100 gold, 100 mustard yellow with baby blue splatter and 100 half tan/half sea blue.

But the history of  SOFY MAJOR  has always been riddled with obstacles and setbacks and this time, the band could rely on a rejuvenated and solidified lineup to gut it out and enjoy a fruitful, creative process. All of this showed once they entered the studio, where sound wizard Dave Curran captured the magic. And it will show on stage. Following hundreds of shows across Europe, the UK, and the US, alongside Unsane, Pigs, Baroness, Big Business, Kylesa, and so many others,  SOFY MAJOR  is eager to deafen the masses again in 2019.

Northward     It was during the 'All Star Jam' at  Progpower  USA Festival in 2007, when current  NIGHTWISH  singer  Floor Jansen  and  PAGAN'S MIND  guitarist  Jorn Viggo Lofstad  spontaneously joined forces on stage for some cover songs and noticed the creative magic between them. Although the two musicians had never met before, they soon discovered their mutual love for stripped down hard rock and decided to write some songs together. In 2008 still barely knowing each other, they composed an entire album's worth of material in next to no time. But due to their tight schedules with their main bands, their new project named  NORTHWARD  never found its way into the spotlight - until this day!  In 2017, the year of  NIGHTWISH 's break,  Floor  took the opportunity to contact her old friend Jorn Viggo  again, to see if he was still interested in resurrecting  NORTHWARD  - and of course he was!  "Jørn Viggo was positive about the project and we started to make the overall plans, meeting again in March of 2017 in Sweden to go through all the material together to see if we still felt happy with what we had created",  remembers  Floor Jansen.    Stepping free from all boundaries  NORTHWARD 's sound is strong, euphoric and straight in the tradition of  SKUNK ANANSIE ,  FOO FIGHTERS  and  ALTER BRIDGE  but also older bands such as  DEEP PURPLE  and  LED ZEPPELIN,  the music gets straight to the point and makes no compromises.   With the help of producer  Jacob Hansen  ( VOLBEAT  etc.), who mixed the record, they forged a raw diamond composed of heavy riffs and  Floor 's incomparable voice, free from influences of the musicians' main bands. And although the songs had originally been written in 2008, they feel as fresh and alive upon a second hearing, as they had on the very first day of their creation.  "The music is melodic, but also in your face and kick ass rock. Cool riffs, good melodies, tasteful arrangements. We would simply like to call it 'Good Music'" , comments Floor. She goes on to add:  "We wanted to explore a stripped down sound, with drums, bass, guitar and vocals. Not the heavy layers of keyboards, choirs etc."   Alongside  Floor Jansen  and  Jorn Viggo Lofstad, Morty Black  ( TNT ) took on bass duties, while drums were handled by  Jango  Nilsen and  Stian Kristoffersen  ( PAGAN'S MIND ). You will also hear a guest appearance by  Floor 's sister  Irene Jansen,  singing a duet on the song " Drifting Islands" . And finally,  Ronny Tegner  from  PAGAN'S MIND  played the piano on a track.      This year,  NORTHWARD  is ready to break free.  Floor   Jansen  states:  "We are happy and exited to be able to release this rock album under Nuclear Blast’s name. They accepted the challenge of bringing this non metal album into the world by believing in us as musicians, and also for the pure love for music that sounds good to them. We have both put our heart and soul into this album. We are very proud of it and we cant wait to show it to you all!"

Only one and a half weeks until NORTHWARD, the hard rock project from masterminds Floor Jansen and Jorn Viggo Lofstad, will release their powerful debut self-titled album.

It was during the 'All Star Jam' at Progpower USA Festival in 2007, when current NIGHTWISH singer Floor Jansen and PAGAN'S MIND guitarist Jorn Viggo Lofstad spontaneously joined forces on stage for some cover songs and noticed the creative magic between them. Although the two musicians had never met before, they soon discovered their mutual love for stripped down hard rock and decided to write some songs together. In 2008 still barely knowing each other, they composed an entire album's worth of material in next to no time. But due to their tight schedules with their main bands, their new project named NORTHWARD never found its way into the spotlight - until this day!

In 2017, the year of NIGHTWISH's break, Floor took the opportunity to contact her old friendJorn Viggo again, to see if he was still interested in resurrecting NORTHWARD - and of course he was! "Jørn Viggo was positive about the project and we started to make the overall plans, meeting again in March of 2017 in Sweden to go through all the material together to see if we still felt happy with what we had created", remembers Floor Jansen. 

Stepping free from all boundaries NORTHWARD's sound is strong, euphoric and straight in the tradition of SKUNK ANANSIEFOO FIGHTERS and ALTER BRIDGE but also older bands such as DEEP PURPLE and LED ZEPPELIN, the music gets straight to the point and makes no compromises. 

With the help of producer Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT etc.), who mixed the record, they forged a raw diamond composed of heavy riffs and Floor's incomparable voice, free from influences of the musicians' main bands. And although the songs had originally been written in 2008, they feel as fresh and alive upon a second hearing, as they had on the very first day of their creation. "The music is melodic, but also in your face and kick ass rock. Cool riffs, good melodies, tasteful arrangements. We would simply like to call it 'Good Music'", comments Floor. She goes on to add: "We wanted to explore a stripped down sound, with drums, bass, guitar and vocals. Not the heavy layers of keyboards, choirs etc."

Alongside Floor Jansen and Jorn Viggo Lofstad, Morty Black (TNT) took on bass duties, while drums were handled by Jango Nilsen and Stian Kristoffersen (PAGAN'S MIND). You will also hear a guest appearance by Floor's sister Irene Jansen, singing a duet on the song "Drifting Islands". And finally, Ronny Tegner from PAGAN'S MIND played the piano on a track.  

This year, NORTHWARD is ready to break free. Floor Jansen states: "We are happy and exited to be able to release this rock album under Nuclear Blast’s name. They accepted the challenge of bringing this non metal album into the world by believing in us as musicians, and also for the pure love for music that sounds good to them. We have both put our heart and soul into this album. We are very proud of it and we cant wait to show it to you all!"

Mesmerizing New Album, Ways We Haunt, out November 9, 2018

Pre-Order: Digital | Physical/Merch

Produced by Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, Scale The Summit, The Contortionist)

 Winston-Salem, NC-based progressive/experimental rock/metal quartet  STELLAR CIRCUITS  will release their upcoming album,   Ways We Haunt  , out November 9, 2018. The album was produced by renowned producer Jamie King ( Between The Buried And Me, Scale The Summit, The Contortionist ), and is available for pre-orders in  digital  and  physical/merch  formats. Select tracks are also available for streaming via Spotify.  Today,  STELLAR CIRCUITS  has revealed the first of several new video blogs running in advance of the release of   Ways We Haunt  , detailing concepts behind the lyrical content, behind-the-scenes footage of recording, and more. Watch episode one here:  https://youtu.be/gpFUV3jxVLo   Vocalist Bed Beddick says in the first video blog:  "A theme [of the album] that really just started to emerge was - things changing. In particular things being lost.... I think for me a lot of writing this album was dealing with losing things... things in life that you really love that you want to hold onto... that you wish could last forever. But unfortunately, the best things in life are the people that we love and they aren't always going to be around. A big part of writing this album for me was trying to grow as a person and come to terms with life changing like that - shifts in your own personal paradigm."    While online, check out more video content from STELLAR CIRCUITS:   - "Go With Your Ghost" music video:  https://youtu.be/-nYnSYIPkss  (directed/edited by Erez Bader ( Veil of Maya, The Contortionist ), with cinematography from Justin Reich ( Black Label Society, The Browning )  - "Go With Your Ghost" guitar and bass playthrough:  https://youtu.be/adBCzntyvPA   - "Nocturnal Visitor" track:  https://youtu.be/G4N2R4nKjvM    STELLAR CIRCUITS  recently announced their upcoming album release tour, kicking off with their album release show on November 2 at The RamKat in Winston-Salem, NC. The tour will visit several other southeastern U.S. cities, coming to an end in Greenville, SC on November 17. The band will also perform on two select shows in October. See below for a full listing of tour dates:   STELLAR CIRCUITS Tour Dates:   10/21 - Greensboro, NC @ Blind Tiger  10/27 - Spartanburg, SC @ Ground Zero  11/2 - Winston-Salem, NC @ The RamKat  11/9 - Nashville, TN @ Little Harpeth Brewing  11/10 - Huntsville, AL @ Sidetracks Music Hall  11/11 - Memphis, TN @ Growlers  11/13 - Columbus, GA @ Soho  11/14 - Orlando, FL @ Uncle Lou's  **NEW DATE!   11/15 - Sarasota, FL @ 5 O'Clock Club  11/16 - New Port Richey, FL @ The Verona  11/17 - Greenville, SC @ Radio Room   STELLAR CIRCUITS  have been churning out massive soundscapes of rock and metal - chock full of the elements of progressive/experimental rock and metal that fans of the genre love with none of the tired fluff in between. In addition to those elements,   Ways We Haunt  incorporates influences from the outer-sphere of metal and rock, past and present, reflecting out-of-the-box artists like  A Perfect Circle ,  Karnivool ,  Between The Buried And Me ,  The Contortionist  and beyond.   STELLAR CIRCUITS  formed in 2015 with the idea of creating progressively-minded music that resonates with the masses. The name "Stellar Circuits" is derived from the eight-circuit model of consciousness, a theory proposed in the 1970's about expanding consciousness and understanding the process of our mind as it pertains to existentialism. Although the music revolves heavily around introspection and self-reflection, this is also coupled with the importance of aesthetics and groove.  Creating music both intellectual and visceral,  STELLAR CIRCUITS  is nothing short of a vehicle - transporting the listener to places both chaotic and cathartic.    Ways We Haunt  track listing:   1. Nocturnal Visitor  2. Skylights  3. Fell Under A Spell  4. Sleepless Goddess  5. Lose the Forest for the Trees  6. Rorschach  7. Go With Your Ghost  8. Matrioshka  9. Goblin Valley  10.
