Music news: 'Castle' announce extensive US tour

Doom thrashers, Castle, have announced dates for their extensive US tour. The tour is in supports of their Blacklands album, which is their first long-player for Prosthetic Records. For more news, including the full tour listing, continue after the break. You can also check out their video for Storm Below the Mountain, which is taken from Blacklands.

Doom thrashers CASTLE have just announced their first-ever headlining tour of the U.S. Full dates can be found below. Previously, the band has been seen on the road alongside the likes of Witch Mountain, Blood Ceremony, Hammers of Misfortune and Gates of Slumber. On their recent Scion A/V-sponsored run with doom act Witch Mountain, guitarist/vocalist Mat Davis commented, "The tour with Witch Mountain was amazing. We had a great response and we're looking forward to getting right back out there and visiting as many new places as possible. Headlining will give us the opportunity to stretch out our set and play a good mix of songs from both albums."

CASTLE have also announced that drummer Rae Amitay (Mares of Thrace, Woods of Ypres, Thrawsunblat) will be behind the kit on the upcoming tour. Says Davis, "We had the chance to play together on a bill in Chicago and were blown away by her drumming." 

CASTLE will be out in support of their PROSTHETIC debut "Blacklands", which Outburn gave a 9/10 rating, while Exclaim! magazine praised its "sinister sweetness" and "irresistible hooks." The album, which was produced by Billy Anderson (Eyehategod, Cathedral, Neurosis), is currently available for purchase on the PROSTHETIC webstore HERE. CASTLE has also been confirmed to take part in the prestigious Roadburn Festival 2013 in Tilburg, Holland, who previously named them "Newcomer of the Year" in 2011 following the release of their debut album "In Witch Order."
