ULCERATE: Devastating New Track Premieres At Pitchfork; Band Locks Australasian Fall Tour Dates

Now less than two weeks from its official North American release via Relapse, today Pitchfork premieres the latest single from ULCERATE’s demoralizing fourth LP Vermis. Closing out the nearly hour-long LP from the death metal innovators, “Await Rescission” steals the last bit of life from the album’s victims with a suffocating seven-and-a-half minute swelling attack of some of the most bludgeoning black-tinged technical tsunamis of riff and percussion ULCERATE have ever unleashed.

Go hear “Await Rescission”…. you will be crushed. DO IT HEREAlso hear “Weight Of Emptiness” via Loudwire RIGHT HERE, view the art video for “Confronting Entropy” AT THIS LOCATION, and watch the in-studio video documenting the making of Vermis posted HERE.

ULCERATE also just announced their next round of live demonstrations in support ofVermis, with a barrage of new shows across Australia and their native New Zealand over the coming months. Stay tuned for additional live and tour actions to be declared in the weeks ahead.

ULCERATE Australasian Tour Dates:
10/12/2013 Churchills Live – Christchurch, New Zealand
11/01/2013 Whammy Bar – Auckland, New Zealand
11/02/2013 SFBH – Wellington, New Zealand
11/28/2013 Crowbar – Brisbane, Australia
11/29/2013 The Stag – Sydney, Australia w/ The Amenta
11/30/2013 Sonic Forge Festival – Melbourne, Australia

ULCERATE’s relentlessly destructive methodology is in a class of its own, as proven on their previous LPs released by Neurotic and Willowtip as well as across the globe in the live setting, and on Vermis is at its most ominous and technical of the band’s existence. Undeniably one of the most anticipated extreme underground albums of 2013, Vermis will see release September 17th in North America, preceded by September 13th in Germany and Benelux, and September 16th in the UK and rest of the world. Preorders for the CD and 2xLP versions are available HERE, and digital preorders HERE.

DEATH ANGEL’s North American headlining tour in support of “The Dream Calls For Blood” will kick off on October 18 in San Francisco. Support on the trek will come from 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, BATTLECROSS, REVOCATION and DIAMOND PLATE.

“We are so excited to announce this upcoming tour,” commented DEATH ANGEL vocalist Mark Osegueda.

“We worked so hard writing, and recording this record! Especially writing this while on the road for the last three years of touring. And it reflects the triumphs, and mainly hardships, of all we went through while touring. The anger, perseverance, and energy was captured on the recording of ‘The Dream Calls For Blood’.

“This tour is the PERFECT springboard to launch off of and back on the road; hungrier and more focused then ever! With a lineup of bands handpicked by us, you’re basically sonically ravaged from the moment the lights dim at the beginning of the night until the lights turn back on at the end! I’m confident every band on this bill plan on sending you home feeling like you’ve survived a massacre that you can’t help but brag about.

“Look forward to feeding off each other’s energy!

“Stay hungry! Stay thrash! See you on the road, in the pit, and at the bar!!!”

The San Francisco, Hollywood and Ramona gigs are considered CD-release shows and everyone that purchases a ticket will also receive a copy of the new DEATH ANGEL album at the show.

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY: ‘Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone’ Video Released

Reposted from Blabbermouth.net

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY’s Justin Reich-directed music video for “Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone”, off the band’s new live DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital Video, “Unblackened”, can be seen at this location. Originally penned by blues legend Bill Withers, “Ain’t No Sunshine” is one of two covers found on “Unblackened”.

Says BLACK LABEL SOCIETY frontman Zakk Wylde: “‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ is such a beautiful, heartfelt song. I’ve always loved it and wanted to cover it. It felt so right in the context of ‘Unblackened’.”

“Unblackened” will be released on September 24 by Eagle Rock Entertainment. Zakk’s label home, eOne Music, will also release the audio version of the “Unblackened” DVD under the same name. The double disc release will have six additional tracks not found on the DVD, including two acoustic versions of “Queen Of Sorrow” and “Won’t Find It Here”, and covers of LEON RUSSELL’s “Song For You” and “Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone”.

Since their early Nineties inception, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, formed and helmed by guitar legend Zakk Wylde, has been at the forefront of hard rock. Their penchant for hard riffs and blazing solos has resulted in a slew of hugely successful albums and a reputation as one of the most powerful live bands of their generation. “Unblackened”, however, unveils another side of the band.

Filmed and recorded on March 6 in high definition at Los Angeles’ Club Nokia, “Unblackened” is BLACK LABEL SOCIETY presenting their songs in a whole new light, with greater use of acoustic instrumentation. Wylde plays both guitar and piano, with Nick Catanase on guitar, John DeServio on bass/vocals, Chad Szeliga on drums, Derek Sherinian on keyboards/piano, and Greg Locascio providing additional vocals.

Their stripped-down approach highlights the subtler nuances of the songwriting, without losing any of the fire or intensity. Classic tracks like “Stillborn”, “The Blessed Hellride”, “In This River”, “Throwin’ It All Away”, “Losin’ Your Mind” and many others are still punctuated by the stinging, searing solos that fans know and love, while showcasing the versatility of the band.

In addition to the concert, “Unblackened” is rich in bonus material. A new interview with Zakk, photo gallery, music video for “Losin’ Your Mind”, and a feature with Wylde visiting HM Prison Stocken in the U.K . are all included.

DVD track listing:

01. Losin’ Your Mind
02. The Blessed Hellride
03. Sold My Soul
04. Road Back Home
05. Spoke In The Wheel
06. House Of Doom
