Pallbearer Posts Mini Documentary Online

Little Rock, Arkansas-based ruminant progressive doom quartet, Pallbearer, recently premiered a brand new track entitled "Dropout" as the 53rd instalment of the Adult Swim Singles Program. The song, which is available digitally today, represents a subtle expansion of the singular doom-prog metal sound the Arkansas outfit is known for.

To coincide with this release, the band have also made an accompanying mini doc available which gives a behind the scenes look at the recording of "Dropout" - recorded at Fellowship Hall Sound in Little Rock, Arkansas. Check it out below.

Comments the band on the single: "We have almost always written music intended to exist as part of an album, with common musical and lyrical threads that tie many elements together into one release. Being freed from those confines in recording this song allowed us to explore themes and immediacy that might not have been uncovered in our more typical "large format" composition process." More...

Pallbearer Announces U.S. Headlining Tour

In support of the newly released magnum opus "Heartless," genre-defying giants Pallbearer will canvas North America in May and June on a headline tour featuring support from Gatecreeper, Pinkish Black, Venomous Maximum, and Inter Arma on select dates. This run will follow Pallbearer’s current U.S. jaunt (shows in Cleveland, Grand Rapids, Indianapolis and Chicago still on the docket) and the forthcoming European tour in April. Pallbearer’s full tour routing can be found below.

Released last Friday on Profound Lore in North America (and Nuclear Blast in Europe), "Heartless" is a 7-song album grander in scope than anything Pallbearer have released prior, showcasing a natural progression that melds higher technicality and more ambitious structures. Heartless was recorded straight-to-tape with Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, Melvins, Soundgarden) manning the board, making for the band’s most pummeling, ambitious, and virtuosic work to date.

Pulling from a wide swath of musical inspirations ranging from ‘90s alt-rock to classic prog, Pallbearer’s sonic architecture has grown more sophisticated than ever without abandoning its primeval roots and unshakeable hooks. The record bears no shortage of surprises—a three-part harmony will be followed up by proto-metal sprints, anthemic choruses are bristled by gnarled guitars and torrid backbeats.

“Instead of staring into to the void—both above and within—Heartless concentrates its power on a grim reality,” the band explains. “Our lives, our homes and our world are all plumbing the depths of utter darkness, as we seek to find any shred of hope we can."

Pallbearer Premieres New Music Video

Arkansas progressive doom quartet Pallbearer premieres a new official music video entitled "I Saw The End", taken from the upcoming new album "Heartless", which will arrive in stores March 24th via Nuclear Blast Records. Zev Deans directed and produced the clip.

Says the band of it:

"Both song and video present a telescopic view on an eternity of corruption. The path of greed leads to misery. When higher awareness allowed us to claw our way out of the mud, we found new ways to exploit one another, abusing the gift that could bring us to new heights. In the end, we pay for our selfishness. Join us for this elegy for what might have been."

Pallbearer Signs With Nuclear Blast

Nuclear Blast Entertainment is pleased to announce the signing of ruminant Arkansas progressive doom quartet Pallbearer for the territories of UK, Europe, Australia & New Zealand. Pallbearer can also reveal today that the highly anticipated forthcoming third record titled "Heartless" is due for release on 24th March 2017! The album will be released via Nuclear Blast Entertainment in the UK, Europe, Australia & New Zealand and via Profound Lore in North America.

Pallbearer commented on the signing: "We are very excited to be working with Nuclear Blast on this record, as so many of the bands that have helped to shape our own artistic pathways have before us.”

Monte Conner, Nuclear Blast Entertainment president adds: “Pallbearer continue to evolve and scale new creative and sonic heights with Heartless. I am very honoured to be working hand-in-hand with the band, Profound Lore and Oblique Artist Management, and look forward to Nuclear Blast playing a key role in exposing new fans to this incredible band."

Initially formed in 2008, Pallbearer grew from the fertile underground metal scene of Little Rock, Arkansas - releasing the debut full length "Sorrow and Extinction" in early 2012. The record made an immediate and immense impact on die-hard doom fans and metal critics alike, also forming the four piece fans outside of the metal scene. The formidable sophomore record, 2014’s "Foundations Of Burden" - featured on countless critic’s end of year lists - cemented the band's reputation as an unstoppable and emotive force - driving doom beyond its imagined limits, carving themselves an entirely original path through the realm of heavy music.

Pallbearer commented on "Heartless": "This album finds us exploring new territories; instead of staring into to the void - both above and within - 'Heartless' concentrates its power on a grim reality. Our lives, our homes and our world are all plumbing the depths of utter darkness, as we seek to find any shred of hope we can."

And on the ruminative album artwork (shown below), created by hugely talented Indiana based oil painter Michael Lierly: "Michael Lierly's indelibly expressive work perfectly captures the feelings of fear and heartbreak we hoped to convey as our world crumbles around us." The album layout was handled by Chimere Noire.

‘Heartless’ was recorded entirely to analogue tape at Fellowship Hall Sound, Little Rock, Arkansas between June and August 2016. The record was produced by Pallbearer, and mixed by acclaimed producer Joe Barresi (Tool, The Melvins, QOTSA, Fu Manchu). Engineering was handled by Jason Weinheimer and Zach Reeves, and mastered by Grammy winning mastering engineer Dave Collins (Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, Soundgarden, Sting). More...
