Full details about Pallbearer’s upcoming UK tour – plus a stream of their latest video – below.

This coming Sunday at roughly 7:30pm the brilliant Arkansas doom metal band Pallbearer will be officially starting their UK tour with a set on the main stage of Temples Festival (arguably THE music event of 2015) in Bristol.

They’ll be setting the scene for none other than Louder Than War faves Earth to close said festival, straight after which they’ll be heading to Glasgow, Brum and London on a short, four leg UK tour which forms part of a larger EU one.

Reviewing Pallbearer’s momentous and broad of scope and deep of, er, depth, 2014 album Foundations of Burden (the eagerly awaited follow up to their well received debut album Sorrow & Extinction) for Louder Than War Dom Walsh said…

“…Pallbearer have delivered a superb doom metal album. Littered with fine melodies and subtle hints of light, this record is by no means soft. There are many moments across the sprawling tracks that are as hard as nails, which will allow the band to appeal to many more metal fans than just the doom metal fraternity. Across the piece there is a certain transcendence that makes this album one of 2014’s must listens; and as for those lofty expectations…consider them suitably met.”

…so to say we’re a little excited for this tour is an understatement of the largest order!

Other than at Temples the band are headlining all club shows with London’s long-form sludgers Bast as main support.

  • May 31 – Bristol @ Temples Festival.
  • June 1 – Glasgow @ Broadcast – tickets.
  • June 2 – Birmingham @ The Rainbow w/ Garganjua – tickets.
  • June 3 – London @ 100 Club w/ Latitudes – tickets.

Pallbearer have also released their first official music video for the track “Watcher In The Dark”, an “…epic piece of cinema” which was directed, shot and edited by Adam Heathcott (Hometapes) and produced by Adam Heathcott and Sara Padgett Heathcott.

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.
