Having recently completed a tour across the U.S. supporting Deafheaven, Little Rock AR’s Pallbearer are excited to announce their own headlining run this coming October with Tombs and Vattnet Viskar in tow.  The tour will kick off shortly after Pallbearer’s European tour with YOB and will take the band from the South up through the Midwest and into Canada for shows in Toronto and Montreal.  Then, Pallbearer will tour down the East Coast to eventually end up in Texas for Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin – check out the band’s full tour routing below.


Pallbearer will be on tour in support of their monumental new album,  Foundations of Burden, which is scheduled for release on August 19th on Profound Lore Records.  The band recently premiered a new track “The Ghost I Used To Be” via NPR’s All Songs Considered and the track was hailed as “more confident, more diverse, and more immersive” by Stereogum and “modern metal doesn’t get much better than this” by Consequence Of Sound.


Formed in 2008 by Joseph D. Rowland (bass) and Brett Campbell (vocals/guitars), Pallbearer grew from the fertile underground metal scene of Little Rock, AR.  A year after their formation, the band released their first three-song demo (with guitarist Devin Holt), which garnered well-deserved attention.  Pallbearer went on to release Sorrow & Extinction in early 2012 on well-respected Canadian indie label Profound Lore, and instantly made waves among listeners and critics who found the band’s compositional paradox of vulnerability and might unparalleled in the metal world.  Sorrow & Extinction proved to be an unequivocal masterpiece in any genre of music and compelled Pallbearer to reach even further creatively for what would come next.


Fast forward to February of 2014 as Pallbearer headed to Portland, OR (with drummer Mark Lierly) to Type Foundry Studio with legendary producer/engineer Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Melvins, Sleep, Swans) to lay down six tracks that would become Foundations Of Burden.  This new album delves even deeper into Pallbearer’s melodic contexts, which adds a new and compelling dimension to music which has long since proven itself to be inexorably captivating; if Sorrow and Extinction created massive waves in the metal scene, Foundations Of Burden will create the stuff of legends.


Pre-order Foundations Of Burden now from Profound Lore.
