Fearsome Liverpudlian Doomsters Conan Drop New Video – and add date to previously announced tour

Probably the heaviest gig we reviewed last year was the one for which Conan teamed up with Bongripper, Humanfly & War Wolf to lay waste to The Exchange in Bristol. Apocalyptic in their remorselessness they left an impression that’ll probably stay with me for a while to come. So great news then that the guys are not only going back out on tour in March but that they have an album in the offing from which they’ve just dropped a video.

The album, titled ‘Blood Eagle’, is due to be released on March 3rd 2014, via Napalm Records and is the highly anticipated follow up to 2012′s planet shaking ‘Monnos’. The tour in support of it starts shortly after the album’s released, on 14th March and takes in the following venues:

  • 14th         Nottingham – Stuck On A Name
  • 15th         Bournemouth – The Anvil
  • 16th         Birmingham – The Asylum 2
  • 17th         Glasgow – Audio
  • 18th         Aberdeen – Downstairs
  • 19th         Manchester – Kraak Gallery
  • 20th         Cardiff – The Full Moon
  • 21st         Brighton – The Prince Albert
  • 22nd         London – Electrowerkz
  • 23rd         Basingstoke – Mousetrap

Says the accompanying press release:

“CONAN have quickly built a reputation as being one of the heaviest bands in the blossoming UK sludge scene today, and with good reason. Their live shows have become infamous for their bowel rupturing volume and supreme heaviosity, so if you’ve never had the chance to have your eardrums pulped by the band’s monolithic riffs in the flesh, then this is one tour you certainly won’t want to miss out on!”



Conan can be found on Facebook. They also have a website: hailconan.com and are on Twitter.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
