Guitarist Michael Dimmitt comments on the tour and the new album:
“This will be our third European tour, and the Danish band we are teaming up with, Solbrud, are a great young band that we look forward to raising hell with around the continent. It has been a long time coming, and we finally have a new release that we are proud of and excited to get the fuck back onto the road.”

A turbulent, caustic take on deathly black metal, “Chasm” sees the band at the height of their songwriting, as they venture further into the darkest shades of black and absolute dread. Each of the album’s 6 tracks sees the band mix an evocative combination of death metal, punk rock, grind-core, and more to create a new sonic identity.
“Chasm” was released via Gilead Media (US) and Argento Records (Europe) on July 20th.
