Elder to Release "Dead Roots Stirring"

Boston's Elder brings more doom with the release of its sophomore LP "Dead Roots Stirring." The follow up to their self-titled debut, "Dead Roots Stirring" drops on October 25th through MeteorCity Records. Recorded in in Williamsburg, Massachusetts at Black Coffee Sound Studios (Black Pyramid, etc.) with Justin Pizzoferrero (Witch, Sonic Youth), "Dead Roots Stirring" is recommended for fans of High on Fire, Kyuss and Sleep.

"Dead Roots Stirring' is not about down-tuning or as much fuzz as possible, it's about evoking the sort of heaviness that comes from dynamism, feeling and well-crafted melodies," said ELDER guitarist / vocalist Nick DiSalvo. "We're extremely excited to finally bring new material to light after such a long break."

The track listing for Elder's "Dead Roots Stirring" is as follows:

1.) Gemini
2.) Dead Roots Stirring
3.) III
4.) The End
5.) Knot
