West Coast doom metal legion, CASTLE, will kick off the first leg of their epic North American live takeover this evening in Phoenix, Arizona. The mammoth trek includes a three-week run of tour dates around their appearance at the Maryland Doom Fest on June 24th followed by a month-long headlining trek beginning July 17th and running through August 20th. From there, CASTLE will take a week-long pause before taking to the streets yet again for a month’s worth of Canadian dates through September 29th.

Comments guitarist/vocalist Mat Davis, “We’re looking forward to unleashing the new tracks on the road this Summer and excited to be playing with some great bands along the way; including one of our favorites, The Obsessed at The Maryland Doom Fest – not to be missed!”

The band’s latest excursion comes in advance of the release of their anticipated Welcome To The Graveyard full-length. Captured by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, Eyehategod, Ommadon et al) at Type Foundry Studios in Portland, Oregon this past Winter, the record finds CASTLE merging their crushing, doom-powered riffing with soaring 1970s rock. A hard-boiled barrage of classic heavy metal riffery tempered with blasts of melodic orchestrated doom, Welcome To The Graveyard is a creepy-crawl through the wastelands of the band’s new Los Angeles’ ­­home and the perfect soundtrack for a Hollywood cult initiation. The eight-track offering will see official release July 15th via Ván Records.

 

Sample CASTLE’s hypnotic new video clip for the track “Hammer And The Cross.” Filmed at an old, abandoned dairy farm north of Toronto in the middle of February and initially premiered via Revolver Magazine, the clip can be seen at THIS LOCATION where you can also sample first single, “Flash Of The Pentagram.”
