San Francisco Doom Metalers, CASTLE is set to release their breakout fourth full-length studio recording this Summer via Ván Records worldwide.
Titled Welcome To The Graveyard, the follow up to 2014’s critically-lauded Under Siege was recorded by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, Eyehategod, Ommadon et al) at Type Foundry Studios in Portland, Oregon this past Winter. Welcome To The Graveyard is set for official unveiling July 15th.
Comprised of 8 tracks written over the last year, Welcome To The Graveyard sees CASTLE merge their doom powered riffing with soaring 1970s rock . The album features a new level of confident songwriting and is a creepy-crawl through the wastelands of the band’s new L.A. home; a hard-boiled barrage of classic heavy metal riffery tempered with blasts of melodic orchestrated doom. The perfect soundtrack for a Hollywood cult initiation.
Just two days after the release of Welcome To The Graveyard, CASTLE is poised to hit the road in support of the new record, kicking off on July 17th in Fullerton California for a full U.S. Tour ending on Aug 20th back in L.A.
